Three night Halloween party survived, one more time. And fun was had by all. The music was rocking, the performances were awesome, and the crowds were not overly terrible. It’s not even Halloween yet. 😉  Though, I’ll be spending mine at work, at work, and then gaming with my usual game (currently Planescape D&D).

Work is going well. Gearing up for a Masquerade on Tuesday. I’m waiting to hear back about the interview. At Sprawl, the carpet is down, the plumbing is approved, and there is even some furniture in the main building. Over in the warehouse, I’m pushing on through the Glenn Cook collection, I’m almost done with all the “new” books there.

I finished The Wheel of Time! The battle is over, the Dark One defeated again, for now, and peace will spread, for a little while. I’ve started NPCs by Drew Hayes, and I’m quite amused.

Had a nice birthday dinner for a friend last night. Mmm Buca di Beppo. Three more parties to go this weekend: one tonight, and two tomorrow. Weee! Looking forward to a fun time with friends.

Work was pretty quiet this week, though tomorrow will probably make up for that. I have an interview at Main next week. Fingers crossed. They’ve also started work at the new MLK site.

Audiobook-wise, I’m still working on Memories of Light; it’s a very long book. 😉

Party season has begun. My first Halloween party last night. We did a super hero murder mystery, and it was great fun. It’s been a long time since I’ve been up to the Cleveland Halloween party. Next weekend, I think I have four parties.

Work is going apace. Working my way through totes of new Hardcovers at Sprawl. Main had their FOL Big Book Sale this weekend. Waiting to hear if I get an interview for a few positions.

In Audiobooks, I ran out of time on Ship of Fools, so I listened to Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Now, I’m working on A Memory of Light.

We had our Ground Breaking ceremony this week, for the new branch. It was a very bright and shiny day. Some good talks, and a very heartfelt speech by one of our volunteens. Then a group of kids, then a group of adults got to turn the dirt. Actual work should be getting started very soon.

A quiet week, otherwise. Birthdays of friends and family, and more Halloween prep. I’ve had a pretty quiet week, with a quiet weekend ahead. Though I may finally take a trip to the IKEA, just to check it out.

Still working on Ship of Fools, I think I’ve got a Pratchett up next.

Autumn has come, and the days are bright and cool. At least at the end of the week, the first couple days were hot enough, that they let the kids out of school early on Monday and Tuesday. Pretty quiet except for that. It’s the calm before the Halloween storm of parties. 😉

Did hang out with friends this weekend, worked on my painting and had a wine and chocolate tasting. Still working on the Robin Hobb. The narrator has a sleepy voice, but it’s an interesting story.
