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.

SURFACING FROM THE GLORY OF GHOST STORY FOR FIVE MINUTES 'KAY

THE LAST WEEK OR SO IN REVIEW (CHIEFLY IN RELATION TO MY FANGIRL-NESS):

-Last Friday I saw the Cap movie. GOOD STUFF, MAN. Cap is a babe, just sayin'. :3 Though I still like Loki way more. |D

-Monday, I...had to be somewhere that was about an hour from home, and afterward I had a slightly-less-than-three-hour gap before I had to be at work, which is also an hour from home and in the same direction. So since coming home seemed rather futile and a waste of money, I...went to the $2 theatre instead and saw Thor again. THAT MAKES THREE TIMES NOW, WHAT EVEN IS THIS. And I will doubtless be buying it the day it comes out on video, which is September 13th by the way, heaven help me for knowing that without even having to look it up to double check.

-TODAY IS DRESDEN DAY DRESDEN DAY DRESDEN DAY and I was nearly useless at work because of it. And when the clock hit 4:30, I was out of there so fast I probably left behind burning skidmarks, Back to the Future-style. WILL DEF. NOT BE SLEEPING, ANYONE WHO IS FOOLISH ENOUGH TO DISTURB ME IS LOSING WHATEVER PART OF THEIR BODY THEY POKE THROUGH MY DOOR.

-Finally, CUTEST LIBRARY STORY EVERRRRR FROM TODAY. While working at the front desk, I checked out a kid who was doubtless, like, six. He dumped an armload of comic books on the desk, as many as his little arms could carry, seriously, and...on his face, he'd drawn a mustache/goatee thing. And it must've been with those scented markers, and it must've been fresh, because I could still smell the licorice-scent the black markers of that brand have.

And. And, he...was pretending to be Tony Stark. He was pretending to be Tony Stark asdfjk;lasdjf; ahhhhh I normally don't particularly like kids, but I just about died from Cuteness Overload right then and there, WAY TOO FREAKIN' ADORABLE. X'D <33333333333333333

9000+ AWESOME POINTS FOR YOU, KID.


..ALL RIGHT NOW BACK TO DRESDEN /o/
