How many times do we sacrifice fun for our work???????

I had tickets made available for me last night to watch the homerun derby and all-star game in Milwaukee and am unable to attend because of a stupid council meeting tonight.......and a special PC meeting tomorrow.

I missed Barenaked Ladies' last sweep through Albany because it was on a Tuesday night. Dammit.

For some stupid reason our Plan Commission always schedules meetings on the night of the NCAA Basketball Finals. The first tuesday in April is usually an election date, so instead of moving the meetings from Tuesday to Wednesday, they move it to Monday.

I have also had to turn down baseball and basketball tickets and have missed a few good concerts. I think all Cities should have day meetings. It might reduce the number of yahoos that show up.
