Or What I Did Last Night.
As I mentioned yesterday, I was working last night (thank you all for the well wishes). I volunteered my time for 10$/hr here
In case you can't read the sign, it is the River Rock Casino, a huge very new hotel/casino in Richmond
The event: David Foster and Friends Fundraiser. Look, here's my official staff badge

I worked in the kitchen from 2pm till 10:15, helping with a buffet for 1000. I was pretty terrified going into it, but it turned out to be really easy work and I soon found my comfort zone. As we worked, Sarah Mclaughlin (sp) and Josh Groban rehearsed ~ Very cool to get to hear that. There was one low point to the evening ~ around 8pm, I cut my middle finger on my left hand. Right through the nail! Of course, being a casino, I had to sign all sorts of paperwork for one stupid bandaid and they had to call the first aid guys down to the kitchen. It was all good though ~ I had a good time and it felt good to put in a full eght hours.

sounds like a first day success, hope your finger heals quickly :)

Sorry to hear about the finger - but it must have been a great experience nonetheless!

Wow that sounds like such fun! Are you going to be doing this often? Hope your finger recovers soon!

It was a one off event, but I still really enjoyed it!
