on travel, thoughts, and the art of short fiction

AAAgh! I’m so tired!

Today was our first day fundraising in Buffalo and it wasn’t so great. It was cold and people weren’t too friendly or in the mood to donate money.

We’re still staying in Rochester due to the fact that we haven’t been able to secure housing which is great for me cause I’m staying at home in a familiar bed, with good food that I don’t have to fund-raise and the ability to catch-up with childhood friends.

Today we made great strides in our food fundraising efforts. Krispy Kreme donated two dozen donuts to us this morning. And i’m afraid to say, that the four of us ate them all, a half of a dozen each. There is something so alluring about that hot glazed goodness.

Then we fundraised diner at the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls. We have a Brazillian and a Japanese on our team who had never been to the falls and they really wanted to go and since we weren’t exactly making money today anyhow, our team leader decided it was time for a mini-excursion. We toured the American and the Canadian sides. It was cold, but relaxing.
Long drive home, which brings me back to the beginning and being tired…
