Workin' 'Round the Clock

It's 1:20 in the morning, the end first official night of the NABJ Convention. Most of my friends are probably out partying, schmoozing or galavanting around Indianapolis. All as I sit in the newsroom of this year's student projects program.

Damn me for wanting to help out.

I can't front. I've been having fun as a professional volunteer. The staff of the online project is great, and they're full of wisecracks, which always works for me. ("Well aren't you a bad boy" will always, from this day forward, cause rib-fracturing laughter.) But producing that web site is no joke. I wish someone would've told me I'd miss meals and and forfeit sleep throughout the week. Then I would've been able to adequately prepare myself.

The good side: I'll be able to fit in my champagne cocktail dress come Sunday.

Who needs magic lemonade?
