As you may know the 2010 Winter Olympics are about to start here in Vancouver (opening ceremonies are in five days).  I've volunteered for the games and I'm working at the Olympic Family Hotel (AKA the Westin Bayshore) in Vancouver.  The executive of the IOC and other big wigs will be staying here throughout the games.  I'm working as a Help Desk Manager here, so I help deal with tickets and send techs off to fix things as needed.  If all goes well we won't have a lot to do, but if there are problems we could be pretty busy.

There are a couple thousand volunteers and workers assigned to this venue alone.  It's quite busy here as the final touches are put on and areas are going operational.  It's pretty well organized and there have been fairly few problems so far, it's amazing to think of the amount of planning and scheduling that went into getting everything ready.

I was given the volunteer uniform so I have a snazzy blue outfit with navy blue pants, two blue shirts, a blue vest, blue jacket, and blue touque.  I might post a picture later if I can.

I'm sitting at my desk at the moment and I'm on my second of twelve shifts.  I'm juggling those twelve shifts around my class schedule.  My last shift is on March 1st so I'm going to be pretty busy this month to say the least.
