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. 😉

Fall has finally fallen, though it is, of course, warmer this week than it has been recently. The leaves are turning, the pumpkin spice and apple cider flow. We had our fall party last night, it was nice and relaxed. The week was pretty quiet. Did not get the job, but applied for a couple others. My car hit 200,000 miles this week as well.

I did, finally finish the Robert Jordan. Now I’m trying out a new Robin Hobb: Ship of Fools. The narrator has a quiet, soft voice, and I haven’t quite figured out what’s going on, yet. Currently watching the newest Alien movie.

Hope everyone had a good week, and more to come.

It has been a fairly quiet week. The library is getting back to school year rhythm. Though there were a lot more kids yesterday during the day than expected, and a whole ton after school let out. One of our biggest Friday after-school snack days. The boss is back at Sprawl, for a bit, and I’m chugging away at the Glen Cook paperbacks.

I did have an interview this week, which I’ll hear back from soon. Super excited about the opportunity. Even got a haircut.

New, short haircut.

Was happy to get back to gaming this week, and get my curiosity back. Also, playing a lot of Kingdom Hearts this week because I got the Remix for my birthday. It’s still fun after all these years. On the reading front, I’m slowly working my way through Towers of Midnight, for another week. It’s a LONG one.

It was a nice long weekend of relaxing and not accomplishing much beyond laundry. I did drop off my car to get it fixed, but most of the work was done after the holiday, and now my car drives smooth as ever. Yay!

All the schools have started up again, so my mornings at the library are pretty quiet. We’re reorganizing some of our sections to see if we can up the check-out rates in audio books.  At Sprawl, I’m getting back into Glen Cook’s collection, while Mowgli sorts books he sent back from his WorldCon trip to Europe.

Coming up is some time with the puppy, and some playing of Kingdom Hearts remastered on the PS4. But first, I’m going to a conference tomorrow: 2017 ASIS&T Midwest Regional Conference.

I finished The Republic of Thieves, and Maurice and His Educated Rodents. Now I’m into Towers of Midnight. I’ll finish The Wheel of Time some day soonish, just one more after this.

Yay, Thursday! August 10, 2017

Did a better job of time-management this week, so I’m actually posting on Thursday. Good job, me.

Not much going on, though. Reported my weekend when I posted on Sunday. Final week of the Summer Reading Club, for the procrastinators. Raffle prizes being picked up. I’ve still got most of my coupons to use. Some of my coworkers are planning a boardgame night sometime.

I’m alone at Sprawl this month. Going through the last few totes of random things, then a couple boxes. I’ve got all of the Glen Cook collection to go through when I’m done.

I finished The Gathering Storm, and now I’m listening to Mockingjay while I wait for my holds to come through.

Late post, as is usual lately. Stayed in Thursday with major headache to go with the massive storms and flooding. Worked a day yesterday, but home sick again today with a mild fever. Bleh.

In other news, finishing up the last few totes of current collection 3… until he gets more. 😉 Library’s having some good programs with the kids. Lots of participation in SRC.

I finished Aeronaut’s Windlass, but waiting on holds for my next book. Trying to finish Jordan/Sanderson. Lots of series going, just gotta finish them up.

Today is Maundy Thursday, tomorrow’s Good Friday, and Sunday is Easter. My work week isn’t actually affected by this, except for the difference in customers at the library tomorrow. Not sure what it’s going to look like in our neighborhood.

I have a lot of friends traveling internationally this week, a couple in Buenos Aries, a couple in Madrid, my second boss in Germany. I’ll be having a girl’s night on Saturday, but no traveling for me this time. At least I don’t have to work the weekend. 🙂

Finished Knife of Dreams, just three more to go in that series. Then I listened to The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Du Bois, which has been on my list since February, but the wait list was very long. Now, I’m listening to another Heinlein, Glory Road.

Late night post. It’s been a cold and dreary week down here in Ohio. Full of lovely storms, at least, and some nasty ones, too. But it’s COLD today.

Had a nice weekend with friends, played a game or two and chatted a lot. We’re gearing up for May, so this was a nice relaxed event. This coming weekend is a Rifts gaming marathon with my Tuesday group. We’re playing in the New West, with a wide variety of characters. I’m playing a stealthy healer/protector mage/psionicist. (WordPress doesn’t know how to spell that word, but neither do I.)

I’m a little over half way through Knife of Dreams, and will make a lot more progress at work tomorrow. The loan period is about to expire, so hopefully, I’ll get it done. Not sure what’s next, though the reading challenge at work is a book by a comedian. I’ve done all the ones of that genre that I wanted to, so I’ll have to look a bit harder to find another.

Hope everyone is well. Until next week, stay safe and love freely.

Long week, full of things. Most of them were not my things, but most were crazy and/or draining. I love my friends and family, and I’m happy that I can be there for them. And I appreciate all they do for me. One of the major me things that did happen, was a friend helped me build a new gaming desktop, to put on the desk another friend had given me. So, Yay!

WordPress says this is the second time I’ve used that Post Title… I’m really surprised it hasn’t been more often. Work went alright, mostly quietly.

Finished Dune, and started Knife of Dreams on audio. If I’m not going to finish Reading it, I might as well listen to it. 🙂

Barfleet party this weekend, with More Gaming. So, I’m looking forward to that.
