  • Mood:


So this morning, I was up and out of the house by 6AM so I could be in the city for a seminar on Non-Profit organizations. The first speaker was the Senior Assistant Attorney General for the Charitable Trusts Section of the California Department of Justice. She was really nice, and I got to talk to her for a bit afterwards (she asked me for the time ;D). Then there was the guy who serves as the co-convener (whatever that is) on The Panel on the Nonprofit Sector. This is apparently a group formed at the request of the Senate Finance Committee. Very impressive big words were bandied about. The final speaker was the Executive Director and CFO of the San Francisco Opera. Really cool guy.

But the point of this post isn't to name drop (notice I mentioned no names there, only positions), but to talk about what happened AFTER the seminar, on the drive back from SF.

Alternator go boom. So my car is currently sitting in a ritzy garage in Los Altos being repaired to the tune of at least $381 (and change).

Le sigh. Every day can't be fantastic, but at least it didn't die all the way up in the city.
