Also? The car I parked next to had a cut-out of Arnold Schwarzenegger from some magazine taped to the drivers-side backseat window and a decal of Mr. Burns from The Simpsons in a speedo holding a whip in each hand on the trunk. Scary.
Something else that was a bit freaky today: I parked and turned off my car right in the middle of "Gimme Three Steps" by Leonard Skinner. Three hours latter I come back, turn on my car and the radio comes on, right in the middle of "Gimme Three Steps" by Leonard Skinner. This was the RADIO, not a tape or a CD or anything. Isn't that kind of freaky?
So, last night was Helpline listener training again. Whew, interesting but exhausting. And it didn't help that we went overtime and I didn't get home until just before midnight. The topic last night was sex and sexuality and we had a guest speaker. He was very good, telling us all about STDs and rape and giving us the gay perspective, since quite a number of calls on the Line are related to people freaking out over coming out. My call role-play was cool. I'm getting the hang of it, although I still need to make my voice more empathetic.
