Casino Night and Winter Ball
Sun Feb 24th, 2002 02:16:47 AM EST
Friday night I was a dealer at my apartment complex's "Casino Night".
Tonight I briefly attended the grad student "Winter Ball". Hey, free
A few weeks ago the weekly announcements email asked for volunteers as
dealers for "Casino Night", no experience required. This sounded like
fun, so I signed up. Last night was the night. Training was from 7
to 9 pm and we ran from 9 to midnight in 1-hour shifts. I ran
roulette from 10 to midnight along with a partner, different each
shift. I got "$500" in chips for being a dealer, but I didn't want
them so I gave them away to a friend. At the end of the night there
was a raffle and she ended up with a potted plant. Heh.
Tonight was the Graduate Student Council "Winter Ball", with swing
dancing. I put on a button-down shirt, stuck a paperback into my
jacket pocket, and went on over. At the door I presented my student
ID to get in and my driver's license for alcohol. I grabbed a beer
and walked toward the dance floor. I sat safely away from it and
watched the coordinated people with social skills dance. I finished
my beer and left. From there I went downstairs to the coffeehouse,
where I read my book, The Autobiography of Mark Twain,
and went home.
