Weather continues to be crazy around the US. Making my days on the phone ever so much more exciting. But it makes the days go by, and only a few impatient folks each day.

Down to the last 8 boxes of my initial run through of Collection 1 at Sprawl. I’m nearing 1500 books cataloged so far. with probably another 500 evaluated, but sans ISBNs.

Still tossing out resumes whenever I can find postings that make sense for me. Two months til Main opens back up. Looking forward to seeing what all they’ve done. 🙂

Relaxing this weekend, so I’ll be rested for MarCon next weekend. Should be a fun time. I’ve got a full badge this year, so hoping to check out more than I have the last few years. Do have to nip out on Sunday to go to work, but I did find a volunteer for my Summer Games Sunday. 🙂

Finished The Cat Who Walks Through Walls, and now I’m onto To Sail Beyond the Sunset. Last book in the current Heinlein reading list. I haven’t fully decided where to go next, might see if I can catch up on Salvatore via audio, but I haven’t looked into it yet. I did download some Ray Bradbury and some Ted Talks via Audible’s Channel feature, so I’ve got some bits to fill in, and listen to at Sprawl.

It’s trying to be spring, finally. Rain and warm and all. Though forgetting and being Cold every now and then, too. Typical Ohio. Better than out west though, with their tornadoes and hailstorms. Nearly a very  nice day today.

Finished Number of the Beast, with all the worlds colliding. Probably going to pick up Cat Who Walked Through Walls on Audible today, as I’m still waiting on the library copy. Listened to a collection of Drizzt tales in the middle time. Only two more books to go on my current Heinlein list. Might check on Night Angel trilogy by Weeks after this, I’ve been meaning to read it since my brother bought me the omnibus.

Safelite goes as Safelite does. They’re having another job fair on May 7th, if anyone is looking for a job. Still having fun at Sprawl, I had some more Heinlein today, and a bunch of authors I’ve never heard of. A quiet weekend ahead for me. Laundry, and dishes, are my main goal. Maybe hit the dollar theater and the Ohioana Book Festival, if I’m feeling rambunctious.

Hailstorms and Heinlein April 14, 2016

Two hailstorms in Texas this week, one after another. So, I spent my week trying to schedule increasingly frustrated customers with increasingly busy glass shops. As you can imagine, this didn’t go particularly well. But people (mostly) understood that they weren’t the only ones in trouble. I hope the extra techs arrive soon… Even the rentals are completely booked out. And they’re expecting Rainstorms this weekend.

 

Finished Moon is a Harsh Mistress this week, and now I’m into Number of the Beast – the most science-y of his books so far – time, space, and universes colliding, not to mention four narrators. It’s a tough one, but I’m managing through. Another great D&D night on Tuesday with adorable puppy and jealous older puppy included. Had fun at the party with friends last weekend, despite having to leave early to get up for work next day. One more day at Sprawl and I’m done for the week. Looking forward to sleeping on Saturday, as well some fun with friends this weekend.

What Fun!? April 8, 2016

This past weekend the weather went completely nuts, and I had to drive through blinding snow to get home Saturday night. I had to pull over twice because I couldn’t see the front of my car. Fortunately, I had a passenger along to keep me calm.  And take pictures:

Sunday at work, was a more relaxed day, but still decently busy. This week I’ve gotten more comfortable on the phone. Still have questions now and then. Starting next week, I’m officially on a team. I hope to meet my Job Coach on Monday. 😉

Finished Time Enough for Love last night and was very nearly, very angry. Next up, Moon is a  Harsh Mistress. I got it just in time from the library wait list. Also working my way through season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix.  Tuesday we got a bit further in our new D&D campaign as our MechWarrior GM has a brand new, super adorable puppy, so he was a bit distracted.

I’ve got a big crockpot full of turkey chili simmering for tonight (anyone want to come over?), and a cocktail party with friends tomorrow night. Looking to be a very good weekend before I get back to work on Monday. I do have to finish lunch and get to Sprawl soon to finish out my workweek.
