I really have NO time for anything, much less updating LJ, because it is paper-writing crunch time for my Library & Info Studies class. But...this Library Story of the Day was too...something for me to pass up documenting.

So I was working at the front desk today, and a teenager-ish girl comes up to check out, and she...was the talkative type. Not the type who you can have a nice conversation with as you check out their things, no--she was the type who comes up and starts talking, and just keeps talking without giving you a chance to get a word in edgewise. And that's fine, it's my job to check out her books, not talk to her, it's a library not a host club (thank heavens), but still. I'm something of a people-watcher, and it's become extremely interesting, amusing, and frustrating in turns to see SO many people with varying levels of SOCIAL SKILLS, WUT DAT.

Anyway, finally she started winding down, at which point she said:

Teen: *sounding EXTREMELY proud of herself* "I finished Breaking Dawn in two weeks!"

Me:


*...BUT~ after maybe half a second of that, remembers to smile and nod, all the while biting back what I really WANTED to say, which was '...And *I* finished Great Expectations in two days.'



Thankfully she left almost immediately after that so I didn't have to stifle my snarking for long, but. Uhm, yeah. Boasting about reading that sort of utter tripe? (To a LIBRARIAN, and an ENGLISH MAJOR, no less, not that she could have known the latter.) Sorry, not the smartest move, kiddo.

...AAAAND ONCE MORE INTO THE BREACH I GO. 8| And in case I don't make it out alive...David, Thellie, and Laura, you guys get to fight over who gets what from my anime/manga collection. Phase gets my beautiful hardback Garth Nix/Old Kingdom Series books. Anne gets all my comic books, and any of my other books she wants. AND TAO, YOU GET ALL MY BUTTONS. EVEN THE NARUTO ONES. X'D Piper gets anything he can steal/carry home with him, lmao, and my beloved Abbey Road poster if he wants it. EVERYTHING ELSE I EXPECT TO HAVE BURIED WITH ME, JUST FYI. EDIT: EXCEPT MY VIDEO GAMES, Logan gets those.

So today I went with my bro to Best Buy to check out the laptops, since he's going to be getting one for college/with his graduation money, and while I was there, of COURSE I couldn't resist looking at the anime. And who is now the proud owner of the complete series of Trinity Blood, and the first half of Yu Yu Hakusho? That would be me. :DDD I don't normally cave and impulse-buy things like that, but I have a thing for the slim, nice-and-neat complete series packets of anime, and I've been wanting to see the rest of Trinity Blood for ages. And it was only $36, which I'm sure most of my f-list knows is an EXCELLENT price for a complete series, since a single disc with four episodes can often cost $20-$25 depending on the series and how new it is. ...And is TB really considered shoujo? Mangafox lists it as such, but...lol that's a LOT of blood and fighting and not-really-romance for shoujo. I am unconvinced.

And as for YYH, I know it's really not the BEST anime out there by any stretch of the imagination, but it's nice when you just wanna watch cartoon people beat on each other (which I often do, shounen fangirl that I am :3), PLUS THEY ACTUALLY FINISH A TOURNAMENT HALLELUJAH IT'S A MIRACLE, which in my mind makes it VERY much worth owning. -^____^- ...Now I need to get my mum to go back and buy me the rest. I don't care if I don't get it until Christmas, I still want it. 8|

In other news, I finally had the time/energy to finish off FFXII (ORZ it took longer than it should've since I had books to read and other people hogging the TV and have just been so tired all the time lately and ESPECIALLY because I was trying to do all 500 million side-quests. But last night I just said SCREW IT I AM SICK OF THESE RIDICULOUS QUESTS and fought the final boss, and just. Totally trashed him so, so easily, because I had like...15+ levels on him from doing all those stupid side-quests, ARGH lol.) But yes, YAY, DONE.

.../plays ToS forever since she told Phase she would after she finished FFXII, s-sob Ffffff GTFO Colette, you're trying too hard to be cute and I want the hot momma Boobzilla Sheena to get with Lloyd so just go be an angel or smth already k
