"What I see outside the window as the patrons run to the door 5 minutes before closing."

This happened yesterday. From September to May the library is open on Saturdays 10am to 3pm. But it never fails that someone comes in right before close. Yesterday at 2:57pm a couple of teens came in and asked to use the computers. My co-worker said, "If you can do what you need to do in 3 minutes because we're closing."
Then the guy got all bent out of shape because that wasn't enough time. Um...no. But I found a couple "Working in a library tumblrs" and they crack me up because I go through the pages and it quickly becomes yes to all! It makes me feel so much better when I have an off day or have to deal with difficult people. The sites are
Don't drink anything when checking out the sites, you may choke or spit all over the screen. Safety first, people.
Book update: This week I finally finished A Clash of Kings by George RR Martin. Holy crap that thing is a beast. I'm telling myself that it will be my last chunkster for awhile but that's a lie. Not only to I have The Complete Sherlock Holmes Vol. 1 sitting on my desk, but big books are my crack. (SH Vol. 2 is on my beside table). I also finished rereading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.
Mara Dyer...oh my god. I texted Matt that I was going to try to read it in one sitting, (Bit more than 5 hours and I was done...huzzah!!) which baffled and impressed him. But I knew about 20 pages in that I was going to love this book. There were moments I was like "What is happening? But so awesome!!" And when I finished it, I knew that no matter what I read next it would suck in comparison.
I was so proud of myself that when I was at the library yesterday I only brought home five books. FIVE! That has to be some kind of record. I bought home:
Halo by Alexandra Adornetto
Blink Once by Sylin Busby
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Well, it will technically be six come Wednesday as I'll be getting the next book club pick, Dracula.
Speaking of book club. I was unable to attend this past Wednesday because of a migraine. I was able to watch the film later in the week so I can go to the discussion this week. But I missed the book club ladies.
Blog: On the blog this week I posted the following reviews:
Anansi Boys Read Along Post 1 (spoiler alert)
The Duke and I by Julia Quinn
The King Maker's Daughter by Philippa Gregory
Other: Matt told me wonderful news this morning. It's taking him awhile to find a job that fits his degree, so while he continues to search for that kind of a job he's starting work at a store. His first day is Wednesday. He's been really stressed out with job hunting, so I'm hoping that this eases a bit of his stress. I know that a job in his field will come along but now he has something for the interim.
It's Sunday, so that means it's Masterpiece night! Woohoo!! But for the duration of today I'm going to be watching documentaries on the History Channel and reading during commercials.
Finally, this last gif is specifically for Sarah and Kristilyn!
