This is an e-mail I sent to Fool last night:
Subject: Bad News
8/22/2005 12:55 am
You were asleep when I returned, so I thought I'd send this in an e-mail.
It's not that as serious as the subject implies, but I found out today that I have to work on Tuesday and tried unsuccessfully to get out of it. It's my own fault because I forgot to put in a time off request before I left. I didn't prioritize it because I hadn't worked at night in so long, but now that school is starting that's the only place they can put me (and it's way better than workign [sic] the day). I tried switching, but no one can do it except Polish girl, and, if she did, it would mean she would have to work a double and I can't let her do that.
Anyhow, I can get there by 11:05, I'm sure, but they often dissipate by then, so I'm not sure what to do. I know this is ridiculous because I'm supposed to be *co-hosting* it and all, but I don't know what else to do. What do you think we should do?
That pretty much sums it up. I won't be there tomorrow unless you all will be there after 11. The restaurant is about two blocks from the bar, so I can get there quickly to have a drink with those of you who remain. School starts the next day for me, though, so I can't go crazy. Maybe I'll have to pre-drink during my shift.
Anyhow, feel free to stop in at ze restaurant on the way down and say hi. (And get one of our excellent Tuesday night specials!)
Go here if you've forgotten the details about the Monthly Baltimore Blogger Happy Hour. Basically, it's tomorrow (Tuesday) at 6pm at Red Fish in Canton. Red Fish is part of the Can Company, right next to Outhouse Steakback and Kiss Cafe. It has a really cool sign and is a beautiful corner building.
