Yes, I will absolutely bribe people with carbs

Had my first Smackdown Staff Meeting (unofficial title). To get everyone happy and relaxed and playing nicely, I baked. From scratch. There were fresh apple muffins made with apples from my obliging (read: too lazy to pick their own dang apples instead of just letting them rot, wasters) neighbors' tree. They were fabulous, and excuse me while I go get another one. I did cheat a bit on the blueberry muffins, but that's because I haven't found a recipe yet that I love. So they came from a box, but it's from a Salt Lake City company. I tell myself that this somehow makes me a better person than I would have been if I'd gone with Duncan Hines. Also I added more blueberries.

Meeting went well, I think. I like to think things are generally going well here, but now that I'm the official Person We Will Blame And Possibly Burn Alive in a Public Ceremony of Some Sort if This All Goes to Crap I find myself thinking about work all the time and even dreaming about it. Which, hi, unless my work involves candle-lit workroom trysts with members of my breeches-wearing British male harem, I don't want to be thinking or dreaming about it when I don't need to be.

Also I'm slightly terrified that the place is just going to burn down one of these days and it will be on my head. Am also reminding myself not to do too much too fast (like take all the crap movies out of the collection and replace them with every BBC drama ever created--it's happening, but slowly).

Am also facing the fact that my semi-anonymity is even further compromised and that the ramifications would be even worse if I were to shoot my mouth off about something that I shouldn't. Which, really, is kind of lame. Don't worry though, you'll still receive unsettling updates about my greying ovaries, because like I could deprive the Internet of that.

You're feeling the power, aren't ya'? Watch out patrons of L****, here she comes!

Hey, don't be too hard on your neighbors, it's hard to eat so many apples...I know. We have an apple tree and so very many apples have rotted because, even though we eat them, we can't eat them faster than they fall off the tree and rot on our lawn. I have tried to give them away but no one will take me up on my offer. It's very frustrating to see so much waste.

ps don't let the library burn down.

Replacing the outdated movies with BBC drama...I love using power to my own ends. Is that bad? By the way, I am from NY and me and a few of my friends read your blog pretty regularly. One of our crew is out your way (read: in L****) visiting family and has been triple-dog-dared to introduce herself to you. She probably won't do it. Wuss.

Speaking of being a wuss, I lived in L**** all year last year and went into the library regluarly, but never, never introduced myself or tried to find you. I like the annonyminty I guess.

So wish I could do that! We have some at my (smalltown) library, but they're mostly the older ones, and ones I own or've watched. I did work at the library a few years ago, but I was too lowly to actually order movies and stuff.

Here's to many more happy Smackdown Staff meetings!
