My new non-paid job

I spent a few hours today sorting books in The Dungeon. The library is having this massive book sale next month so the volunteers are going through all the for-sale books and organizing them by subject. I was in non-fiction, so it was stuff like Cookbooks, Hobbies, Outdoor Alaskan Manly Man Adventures, Chicken Soup books, and Bathroom Books. Turns out people like to read those Don't Sweat the Small Stuff books in the bathroom. I guess it's better than reading the back of the shampoo bottle.

It was my first day, but so far I like it. It's a cool library. All the DVD rentals are free and there's a cafe. You can take covered drinks anywhere in the library, which is good because hot drinks are pretty much the only consolation people have once winter hits. I got my library card and checked out two books (Labyrinth and The People of Sparks) and have requested two more (I, Coraline and The Undomestic Goddess). Also I took Bella Tuscany off the book sale shelf today and will read it and then bring it back before the sale. Yay for books!

Need to get cracking and start filling out new job applications. It's good that now I can put something in the "Experience" section that has the word library in it. I'm trying not to be too stressed, but I know I am because all my dreams are the stressed-out anxiety kind where I'm being chased and looking for things but not finding them and being eaten by Alaskan animals and other unsettling things. Mark Wahlberg was in one of them, only he was chasing me through a hotel and totally turned me in. Jerk. Brown-eyed jerk. And Ioan Gruffudd was in another for all of 5 minutes, but I'm pretty sure he loved me.

Darn straight. Ioan gets it.

Spooky! My bad dreams often deteriorate into my complete inability to find something. Then I realise it's because my eyes aren't open. I then realise that's because I'm asleep and it's all a dream. Then I wake up and can't get back to sleep for ages.

Congrats on the library experience! And although I love the SLCPL with all my heart, I know feel it necessary to give employees the stank-eye for not employing you. And since I was in jr. high, I have had vampire dreams. In which I am chased by them and have to save people from them. The latest involved a final stand off in a gym and I was armed only with those thin wooden spears you use when making shish kabobs. Good times.

Oh NO! Why would Mark Wahlberg chase you? Do you have a thing against him? Because he was pretty good in Italian Job, you know.

Yay about the library! I love libraries. And books. And bookstores. And book sales. :)

You'll like The Undomestic Goddess, I think. I never thought gardeners could be sexy until I read this book.
