Occasionally -- very occasionally -- it's the only way I know I'm doing something right. Exception proving the rule, as it were.

He knows what I'm talking about . . . . Don'tcha, Tac?

EDIT: But it has nothing to do with my nakedness -- that's just a bonus. For everybody.

NobodysHome’s Life of a Chaperone, Part IV: Getting to the Hotel

It is utterly amazing how quickly you can build relationships with teenagers, and equally amazing how ephemeral those relationships are. Once I'd finished my duties driving "ma girlz" around, only Joey and Pearl were even willing to acknowlege my presence, and only Joey was openly friendly. (And honestly, I think Joey would be OK with me calling him one of "ma girlz" because it's more phoenetically pleasing than "ma girlz and Joey" or some other attempt to separate him. Heck, I'd do it to him if he were a biological male, so why not a fluid transgender?)

A Long Day:

Thursday, April 6, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm:
Our first visit was to East Bakersfield High School in (surprise surprise) Bakersfield. Thanks to Google Maps, I took a wrong turn and ended up behind the school. Being of the opinion that it's faster to walk than search for parking, I pulled over and the girls and I (and Joey) headed in. The group was amazed at the vast expanses of real grass around the school; my father ran for city council way back in the 1990s on the platform that Albany had the least amount of park space per capita of any city over 10,000 people in California, and it's only gotten worse. Open space is not a thing you find in Albany. I found out that the buses weren't going to arrive for another 20 minutes, and the girls asked whether they could explore. I told them that once we knew where to wait, they could look around a bit. We checked at the first door we came to, and they sent us around front.

That was one of the really interesting things I found about the trip: In Albany, the schools are pertty much open; you can just walk in and out of any entrance, and nobody bats an eye. At 2 of the 3 schools we visited, every door was monitored by either an adult or a student monitor, and comings and goings were strictly regulated. The girls, being far more charming than I, finally met some other students and got us directions to the front office. Once there, I determined where the buses were supposed to park, texted/called the information to Ms. S, and gave my group 10 minutes' leave to wander around and explore until the buses arrived, as long as they stayed in groups of 2.

Needless to say, they were late (they were sure I'd said "15 minutes", and I can at least understand that, as I told them, "The buses will be here in 15 minutes, so I want you back in 10."). I set off a bit of a panic because I didn't have any of their cell phone numbers, so I texted Ms. S to text them, which led to the inevitable, "Why aren't they with you!?!?!?", but they were all back almost exactly at the 15-minute mark, so it was all good. After that came the inevitable confusion as the buses pulled up, 100 more students piled out, the chaperones tried to organize the unruly mob (who had been stuck in bus seats for the last 5+ hours), do bathroom breaks, etc. While we were all there, one of the doors to the school opened up, and an adult booted a small dog out of the school.

So, it's pretty much impossible to go into enough detail on the effect this dog had on the group. He was petted, cooed over, sat in Joey's lap, adored, recognized as a stray, recognized to have ticks all over (causing those who had touched him much distress), picked up, worried about, carried about by D (Z's mother) for the entire visit, and finally taken to a local shelter by D (afer some discussion with Z as to whether they were going to adopt him, and more than one statement of, "Now I want a dog" from other students). More than the performances or the exchange, that little dog was the focus of the visit. We learned later that the school was a kind of magnet for stray dogs, as the soft-hearted teens inevitably fed them and "adopted" them, without thinking about all the repercussions (vet bills, spaying/neutering, the inevitable biological bombs left behind by such animals), and the staff, having to deal with said repercussions, were less than sympathetic. I wasn't there for the final conversation, but it was something along the lines of, "Oh, they bring in strays all the time. It's hard keeping up with the kids to get rid of 'em."

It's nice coming on the trip multiple years in a row, because not only do you get to see the evolution of the kids in your group, but you get to see the evolution of the kids at the other schools. The previous year, the East Bakersfield High students were obviously nervous, didn't particularly want to be there, weren't particularly interested in meeting us, and it was overall a kind of surreal experience: The choir teacher was enthusiastic and welcoming; the kids were basically, "Do we HAVE to be here? Do we HAVE to talk to them?"
This year the kids were much more enthusiastic and welcoming, and there was a lot more socializing and good cheer. Unfortunately, we were scheduled to be there from someting like 8:20 - 9:50 am, but we didn't all get into the room until around 9:00 am, so it was cut quite a bit short. On the bright side, I missed quite a bit of the performances because of the number of wandering students who stopped by, heard the singing, and then crowded around the door to listen. They weren't disruptive nor disrespectful; they were honestly interested in hearing the music, and many danced, snapped their fingers, or otherwise showed obvious enjoyment. It's always nice to see that kind of behavior, because it's nothing whatsoever like it was when I was in high school, when any student outside of class would have cheerfully tried to disrupt the proceedings just to be a jerk. Of course, my class of '85 had the highest felony rate of any class in my high school's history, so maybe it was just my class that was the problem.

I was also busy dealing with text messages. I do not exaggerate when I say I received over 900 messages over the course of the 4-day trip. Considering I have a flip phone and have to spend a few seconds on every single message, this was... not fun. On my arrival in Bakersfield there were 86 messages and 2 missed calls waiting for me. Of the messages, 84 were trivial: Either bus chaperones discussing what students were doing, when to pass out food, etc., or one of my groups (each group had its own text message channel) discussing what would happen to each student on the trip. (My unfortunate Lou was going to get thrown under the bus, get sick and die, or be killed in some other awful way.) Ms. S had called me twice to find out where I was. There is a strong push to have me use a "reasonable" phone on the next trip, but considering every other chaperone has to lug around multiple battery packs to keep their phone charged, I'd rather work on updating my phone so that I can keep using it. (I learned late in the trip that not only could the rental van connect to my phone, but it could read text messages to me while I was driving. Unfortunately, even with the volume cranked to full I couldn't actually hear the calls, so it was a... less-than-useful feature. Strangely enough, it read the text messages loud and clear.)

Our next stop was Centennial High School, also in Bakersfield. Due to the long walk back to the van, I was significantly behind the buses. This turned out to be a good thing, as I pulled into the parking lot, checked my texts, and there were already instructions as to where to go. I quickly found the buses, dropped off ma girlz, got instructions on where to park, dropped off the van, and headed into the (very nice) auditorium where the choirs would be performing. And that was about as far as I got.

Keep in mind that we had all been up since 2:00 am, and most of the other chaperones hadn't been able to access coffee. I was immediately conscripted to do a coffee run with J for the group. Now, don't get me wrong; I appreciated being appreciated and they were VERY thankful to me for doing it, so I really didn't mind. But it did mean I missed the entire performance, so I have no idea what Centennial High's choir is like. I was out the door and down the road to the local Starbucks, J picked up all the drink orders for the chaperones, and back we came... just in time for it to be time for me and CT to head down to Anaheim to pick up our second load of victuals for the students. Just as her Costco running had been uber-efficient, CT navigated me to Costco with no issues at all, and we got there around 2:30 pm. our pizzas weren't scheduled to be ready until 4:00 pm, so we set about shopping. After about half an hour, I went to the pizza stand and notified them I was an hour early.

And there, I met Hugo (his real name), a brawny, bearded, good-natured, Middle-Eastern looking guy, who just said, "Yeah, they're already made for you; we can start cycling them through right now. Give us around 20 minutes."
Watching him work was truly awe-inspiring: A non-stop whirlwind of folding boxes, pulling pizzas from the oven, throwing pizzas into the oven, cutting pizzas, looking at the line, determine who had waited long enough that I'd have to wait while he served someone else, then moving back to us. I am writing a(n in)famous "NobodysHome Letter" on behalf of Hugo to Costco. The man was that good.

So we finished our shopping, picked up 25 pizzas, wheeled a full platten of stuff to the exit, and... were hopelessly delayed by yet another schmuck who had to block up the exit by socializing with the door checker for 3 minutes solid. I swear, if there is only one exit to a building, DO NOT BLOCK IT!!

Another half-hour drive to our destination hotel, arriving just as the buses did, so my next order of business was organizing a group of junior and senior boys to help me cart all the stuff to Ms. S's room and get set up for dinner.

But then you spend time out in the world, and you realize having so many aliases probably wouldn't change anything. People will still come up with ridiculous user names.

So, Tiny T-Rex wants to make a Dwarven Ranger rocking a Crossbow. So, do I go for Point blank shot and go with a light crossbow to start or Rapid Reload and go with a heavy crossbow and damn the accuracy for an extra point of damage.

Pea Bear is also making a bow focused Hunter (with a bear).

I guess I'm thinking Point Blank Shot first or possibly weapon focus... two archers, not much a chance to get in close...


DWARVES ON A CROSSBOW~! (Or really short metal bows!)

I had a good time at my game tonight. Last week we started a battle with a big-ass blue dragon (not sure of the age category, but I think it was either ancient or a wyrm), and I was able to Enervate a few times for 7 negative levels. Then tonight, I Disintegrated it for 95 damage and Feebleminded it. I really didn't expect the Feeblemind to work, I cast it mainly because I thought it would be funny if it did work, but the dragon failed it's save due to the negative levels I had previously given it. In the end, we killed the dragon and no-one really even got seriously injured, so good for us!

Conversation from a video I'm watching of people playing a Bigfoot hunting video game:

R: I'm thinking we catch him in a bear trap and then shoot him to weaken him.

J: Bigfoot can get out of a bear trap, can't he?

R: I don't know, that's a lot of foot to be caught in a trap.

I agree, that would be a lot of foot.

Ugh. It turns out that fond memories isn't the only thing the kids gifted me with on the trip. I figured that the sinus headache, stuffy nose, and so forth were just my allergies coming back with a vengeance. Unfortunately, the added cough, blinding headache, and mild fever say otherwise. I barely made it through the 2.5-hour Serpent's Skull session last night, and that session had a LOT of downtime.

So I'm *supposed* to run Crimson Throne on Saturday, for the first session since February and the last one through mid-May. Just gotta cross my fingers, drink lots of fluids, and hope.

But this morning, I tell you what: Ow!

I entirely do not understand people suffering from allergies and/or sickness (especially both at the same time) and find your lack of immediately gratifying my desire for updates to be entitled unacceptable.

I.e. sick sucks, so do allergies, I hope you feel better soon, and empathize! You are in prayer! Also: tell Impus Minor that he's cool and it was awesome to see him post!

So, I can get a job making twice what I am now per hour, but would require Pea Bear to give up five or six hours a day of her summer (her first as a teenager even) watching Tiny T-Rex.

That seems harsh.

Save some of the extra money you'll make for her therapy sessions?

I wish you luck making the decision. It's a tough thing to balance financial security and family happiness.
