...My Boba Fett fangirling (...uh...so would that be a FETTish? /SHOTSHOTSHOTlol) goes up about a hundred notches every time I watch this. And in my mind, only the awesome and utterly badass Fett of the first three movies + the EU novels & comics exists. That whiny, annoying brat in the new movies? DON'T KNOW HIM, WHO IS THAT, NOPE NO IDEA NO NONE.

alory_shannon: Rise from P4 fangirling, most likely over her senpai. & who can blame her, he's a badass, & a silver fox to boot. (So quick to fall in love with anything;)

So, about 5 minutes before the library closed tonight, I suddenly hear one of my co-workers say, “...Is that a snake?”

And of course I just thought, pfft, oh right, she’s joking, it’s a rubber toy or some sort of prank, but I go over to look anyway…and no.

REAL SNAKE.

(My face on realising this: 8D)

It was coiled up on the floor on the employee’s side of the counter, kind-of off to the side, just calm and cute as could be. <3 So INSTANTLY I’m over there, crouching down to get a better look but still keeping a respectful distance, because I didn’t want to scare it + RESPECT NATURE, LOOK BUT DON’T TOUCH UNLESS YOU HAVE TO has been drilled into me from…early childhood, thank you Ranger Rick. I was 97% certain it was just a harmless little garter snake, and even if that was wrong, there were no bright colours on the thing, which when it comes to snakes generally means no need to worry about ZOMG POISON. So when one of my co-workers was like IS IT POISONOUS D8 I couldn’t help giving a little chuckle and saying, “Oh HEAVENS, no.” Even after that, though, the other ladies at the Circ desk…were all kinda clustering away on the other end of the desk, giving that little guy WIDE BERTH, lmao.

So the older gentleman who works in Reference and the middle-aged one who works in Children's came over, both with this semi-patronising air of yeah yeah, stay calm ladies, we’ll take care of it.... And they were trying to corral it into a cardboard box, which…didn’t work at all, small as the snake was. It just kept slipping away, got around the front of the desk, then came back behind it, and finally it went under the Circ desk to attempt to hide amongst the computers’ power cords.

And at that point…I was just like, you know what, forget this. This is never going to work and NO ONE ELSE has the guts to take care of this properly SO.

So I just went for it—and it wasn’t really a conscious decision on my part, it felt more like…reflex or something, I dunno. I just gently picked it up, kind of in the middle, holding it firmly enough that it wouldn’t just fall out of my hand, but loosely enough that it didn’t feel like I was a threat. I know you’re really supposed to pick them up closer to the head so they can’t turn and bite you, but it was just so totally chill with me holding it the way that I was already, I didn’t see any need to alter that. I heard a “Wow, you go, girl,” as I headed to the back door with it, and the snake was still totally calm, not freaking out or writhing or even trying to slither out of my grasp, so I took it outside and carried it to the wooded area at the edge of the library's property and let it go. :]

…And when I came back in, all my co-workers sort of just.....looked at me silently for a moment, HAHA. Then I got a “Well...well done, there” and a “YYYYEP, that’s definitely an A+ for you at work today.”


...But it was SO CUTE and SLEEK and as;lkdfjlkdsj I LOVE HOW SMOOTH THEY FEEL AND I HAVE REALLY SORT OF WANTED A SNAKE FOR YEARS AND THIS ONLY REMINDED ME OF THAT FACT

SO MUCH





But lol yeah, ALL IN A DAY’S WORK AT THE LIBRARY~ 83



...And y'know, really all I can think...is AND THE HAT SAID, "SLYTHERIN!!!!"

Y/Y/MFY?? X'D

SO [livejournal.com profile] laura_writes and I went to Ohayocon last weekend, and it's taken me this long to do a semi-decent write up of it, but OH WELL. Here goes~

Waiting for the elevator is a part of EVERY Ohayocon, and the worst time is always RIGHT when you get there and have to take all your stuff up to the room. Laura and I must've waited 15-20 minutes, but we were on the 18th floor, and there was just no way that we were gonna make it up all those stairs lugging all our crap. But about 10 minutes into the wait, some random guy came out of the stairwell and said to the waiting group as a whole "HELLO ~LADIES~!" And there was a pause as he left, then the girl standing beside us deadpanned, "...Aaaaand now the weekend has officially begun."

All pics taken by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] laura_writes, the bestest BFF EVAR, & used with her knowledge and full permission. <3333

General Con Pics :D (a.k.a. OH SO IMAGE HEAVY SRSLY) )

Aaaand here are the Sync pics )

FIRST OF ALL DRAGON AGE DRAGON AGE DRAGON AGE

IT IS EATING MY LIFE

AND I DO NOT CARE

RATHER, I AM LOVING IT FFFFFFFFFFFFFF


Though, my one issue is...perhaps predictably, The Romances. TEAL DEER RAMBLING~ )

ALSO Library Story of the Day is from yesterday, and it was basically just a WTF. I had to play 20 Questions with a patron after I found him his book. As I was turning to go, he got all quietly intense, and was all, "So how long have you been working here? Do you work here full-time? Are you looking for another part-time job, then? Do you have a degree in library-work? Where did you go to college? Where's that?" And introduced himself and went for the handshake which I HATE I FREAKING HATE SHAKING RANDOM PEOPLES' HANDS, AUGH. And I just sort of...answered his questions quickly but politely and FLED back to the desk, because he was at least my dad's age and sorta creepy and. I wanted the desk between us. And George nearby, just in case he was some sort of crazy. Because WTF I DON'T KNOW YOU STOP BEING NOSY MY LIFE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS AND 'NOT INTERESTED' DOES NOT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE MY FEELINGS ON THIS SITUATION. But he wasn't done yet--when he got up to the desk to check out his book, there was another flurry of questions. ("So have you lived in Charlotte long? Where are you going when you go back to library school? Do your parents live down here? Do you have a roommate, then?") And once again I answered as vaguely but politely as I could and checked his book out VERY fast and tried not to give in and just SNAP at him. And I'm not blonde anymore, so that isn't an excuse. But. Maybe I really DO have to stop wearing the shirt I wore yesterday...because whenever I do, this sort of thing tends to happen, which I still do not understand because my chest is Really Not Very Impressive. -_-;;;


IT IS NOW MY INTENTION TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES FOR SEVERAL HOURS
