Librarianing it again, some more!

Quick service announcement first:

LivingSocial's deal today is two Fandango movie tickets for $9. You have to buy the voucher today but you can get your Fandango passes anytime before June 6th. I just bought the deal so GH and I will be going to see Thor this spring for cheap. And yes, I'm sure you can guess whose idea Thor is. (Comic books + Natalie Portman = GH Nirvana.)

If anyone wants to get in on it, my shameless request is that you use this link so that I can get credit for referring you. I know. Vulgar.

But my actual post is about how I've started going back to work part time. It's only one morning and one evening a week, but it will bring in some much-appreciated cash so that I can support my habits. Like my Internet habit. And my food-eating habit. Other benefits:

1. I get access to a bigger library with an awesome DVD collection. My own local library, bless its heart, does not really have the budget for that. Also the staff refuse to look up from their computers at you and they won't let you look at your own dang blog on its public computers, but I will not be getting into that right now.

2. Adults! Oh my gosh there are adults here and I can speak with them! Sure, some of them smell like pee and are possibly insane, but that's okay. I will take that trade-off.

3. I officially have new things to talk about. I can talk about what happened at the library this week instead of sticking to my usual conversational gambits involving baby snot. Not that I won't keep bringing up the snot because I think we all know that's fascinating, fascinating stuff.

4. Books! I remember about the books! It's only been three months and I am already so out of the loop. I have no idea what is hip an' cool in Book Land. But no longer, friends!

No longer.

Please, please keep us posted on what is new and amazing in Books. My local library counts any book from the last three years as "new." I have no idea what to read next!

Yay for a little employment.

And dude, I'm excited about Thor. It's directed by Kenneth Branagh!! And I like superhero movies. So, two pluses. ;-)

My husband still volunteers a few hours a week at our library, partly to keep up his cataloging skills and partly for the free DVD privileges. I would be very sad if we didn't get free DVDs. Plus he catalogs DVDs so we get to watch all kinds of weird stuff that we wouldn't have heard of other otherwise. I love libraries, especially my local one which is the best one around :)

Yay! This by far was my favorite line "Sure, some of them smell like pee and are possibly insane, but that's okay."

Isn't that the truth!

That is so exciting! Congratulations and good luck.

I chunked down $50 at Borders today. 1096 square feet is probably enough for 5 people, but if one of those people has hundreds and hundreds of books, it gets a little dodgy.

I always say my 1 1/2 days at work are my days off. Adults! No one touching me constantly! No whining- okay there is whining.

And sure I am taking care of sick kids, but I am only in the room for 10 minutes and then there moms take them home. I just am the bright spot in the day that gave them a lollypop and stickers (before I ran out of the room to leave them in the clutches of the evil shot wielding nurses).

Yeah for a very little amount of work! (and if it pays the mortgage all the better).

Glad you are enjoying the change in routine and glad you are doing something you enjoy , instead of greeting at Wal-mart.
