Sorry, folks. I went to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at the dollar theater on Thursday night, and then forgot to post last night, instead. Thanks for the reminder, Mom! Fantastic Beasts was, in fact, Fantastic. I really enjoyed the movie, and all the fun beasts, and characters.

On the health side, I’ve lowered my prednisone intake, and now my jaw is starting to be a bit wonky again. I need to call the doc on Monday about the specialist she wanted me to see… and get my blood draw done. ::procrastination::

This week at the library was fairly good. Less excitement than last week. And I’m learning all the little ins and outs of my branch. I’ve also been handed an archival project! Since we’re getting a new branch, the manager has dug up all the papers and photos of the history of the branch. They are not in very good shape and really need preserved and cataloged. So, we’re going to get Aaron over to help set up a plan, that I then get to implement, to take care of all the things. I’m very excited about this opportunity.

On the book front. I finished Triplanetary, and listened to Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime. The latter was very, very good. I learned more about South Africa and apartheid than I ever did in school. Then, I went back to Robin Hobb, and after a chapter of a book way down in the sets of series, I finally found the book I was looking for, and have started Royal Assassin.

New Branch February 23, 2017

Started officially at my new branch this week. Learning the ropes of the new space and processes. Very different from larger previous branch and the much larger Main. It’s all good, though, working together to get everything done, and everyone taken care of. I like it.

Newsies was Great! The play took a different angle on a couple of the main characters, but I think it worked really well. The changes to the songs were disconcerting, but not bad. The songwriter said, in an article I Googled after watching, that he was glad to have a chance to go back and really polish them up.

Doc’s not thrilled with me still being on prednisone, so I’m onto my next step of cutting back. She’s also looking for someone for me to see about my jaw, but of course it’s been behaving these last couple days. Wants me to add Fish Oil into my supplements, too.

This week in Audio books has been short stories: Side Jobs by Jim Butcher, Call of Cthulhu and Dunwich Horror by Lovecraft. I also started into Triplanetary by E.E. Smith today, and a couple more Dresden shorts.
