I’ve been in Washington, DC for the New Organizing Institute’s Advanced Data Training…you know, so I can get my hard-core social change on…and it’s been a challenging and enriching experience.
I’ve been to DC several times and I know that it can be muggy this time of year, but the most excitement I was expecting out of DC during a Congressional recess and with President Obama on vacation was a random political scandal or race-baiting statement by [insert politician, staffer, or news outlet here].
So imagine my surprise when the earth freaking shook yesterday in the middle of a session about matching lists through Access!
Like a true Missourian, I did everything wrong and headed outside...swiftly.
Well, shit…I’m your go-to person during a tornado, but a sistah doesn’t experience earthquakes often!
Eventually the earth stopped shaking and everyone settled down to returned to training…but daaaamn, that was some freaky shit because I don’t expect earthquakes on the East Coast.
Pause…look around anxiously…continue.
And I’m beginning to think I may have pissed off the Goddess…
…because it looks like a hurricane is heading our way later this week.
