This morning I was up early, dressed, starbucksed and "working" by 7:40. Gary's office holds two Stampede breakfasts every year, so today I was on cooking duty. My duties will continue tomorrow. Seems like a fair trade- I flip pancakes for about 6 hours, he provides me with food and shelter.
It went pretty smoothly, aside from continuous blowing of a breaker, affecting the coffee urn, the pancake griddle and the skillet I was frying bacon in. I'd say I'm a pretty skilled breakfast cooker- I ran the bacon and pancake stations mostly single-handed.
And after a nice hot soapy shower to wash off the residual bacon/sausage grease, I'm inspecting my sunburn and getting ready for the rest of the afternoon and evening. I'm participating in a focus group tonight. Man, I love being rewarded with food, beverages and a nominal cash payment to express my opinions. I wonder if I could do it full time...
