Central Park Zoo

Panda.jpg I’ve been looking into various volunteer opportunities and yesterday I called the Central Park Zoo. They called me back right away because a training session starts on Saturday. So now I’m going to run up to the zoo before calling them back because it occurred to me that working there might upset me, depending. I forget what the Central Park Zoo is like! I don’t remember if it’s an upsetting zoo or not. The Bronx Zoo used to be but they’ve been fixing that over the course of my lifetime.

Meanwhile, in other news, my editor said they’re moving onto the line edits, which means they are happy with the draft I handed in! YAY!!

In other other news, did you know that when you call the Secret Service they actually answer the phone, “Secret Service.” I felt like saying, “Come on. You’re not even trying!”

(The picture is of a red panda at the Central Park Zoo.)

Update: My Shot of the Red Panda. The little furball was asleep while I was there, alas, and I didn’t want to wake him.
