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?

Had a nice quiet weekend full of snow. My car was being obnoxious, and the first shop I took it to could find no problems. Fortunately, the shop I took it to today found the hole in my tire and fixed it up for me. More applications sent off this week.

Finished listening to As You Wish, by Cary Elwes. Awesome book, I really want to watch Princess Bride again soon, now that I have a lot more background on the making of. Starting into Kevin Smith’s biography today.

Finished digitizing through the Deaths section of the Ohio State Journal Index this week. That’ll be a big help to Ohio genealogists. 🙂

Fun with friends this weekend, including our February Fleet party. Looking forward to it.
