I’m bad at naming things, so post titles are always silly. Ah well.

A nice weekend with the girls last week. Tea and movies and popcorn and delicious chicken and cupcakes. Another weekend with other girls this week, this time for a LuLaRoe party. Should be fun.

Work week has been good, and quiet. Learning new things. Just a bit more hand-cataloging, and the current collection will be done. On to the next tomorrow. And work all day Saturday. WEeeeee!

Still working on Royal Assassin, and I’ve got Dune on tap next.

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.

I have a job! A part-time job, anyway, with a friend, who is creating a Speculative Fiction library called The Sprawl Library. It’s really fun. I’m evaluating and cataloging books dated back to the 1950s. It’s enough to keep me going for a few more months anyway, while I wait for the red tape to clear on some of the other jobs I’m looking at.

I got my degree from Kent State today, too. It’s pretty, though this isn’t a very good pic of it:

Finished Kevin Smith’s biography. It was excellent. I laughed a lot, I cried a little, and I was even a bit inspired. Trying to decide what to listen to next. Anyone have suggestions?
