Kaylee asked me to look at her so I gave Kaylee a weird bug eyed stare and she said it was the best thing ever and has been asking me to give her “that weird stare thing” again. Naturally I started talking in an alien/robot voice and told her I was taking her to the mothership. As I walked upstairs, carrying Kaylee (who was laughing, before y’all think I traumatized my children), I said “beloved-unit. The Kaylee-unit has discovered that I am an alien so I am taking her to the mothership!”
Pippa, without missing a beat, picked up the alien/robot voice and said, “oh good. You got one. Bring her to the mothership.”
So I was IMDBing Jewel Staite (as one does) and I saw that she played Amy Pond on Supernatural so I said to my coworker “I bet she dies! I don’t know much about Supernatural but I know the women die!” (two seconds of googling later) “Amy’s death drives a wedge between Sam and Dean. Yup. She’s dead.”
You know, you think to yourself “gosh darn it I’m an adult” but I still have those dreams, you know? Today I have to go to a local preschool for storytime and so last night I dreamed that I was on my way there (weirdly on my super sweet motorcycle? That IRL me doesn’t own?) and I realized I forgot my books. So I went back to the library (in a glass-tower high rise filled with guys shooting at me. Cap 2 style.) to get them only all the books I wanted were not on the shelves (stolen by the guys with guns) so I grabbed random books and got back on my bike to give these kids a storytime (because the fate of the world depends on it) only once I got there it turned out that none of the books were in English - or maybe they were and I just forgot how to read English. So I tried to make up stories and it turns out my whole brain stopped working.
So basically the fate of the world was on my shoulders and I failed.
Also I have to tell you all how awesome Kaylee is. Brandon was at the store a few nights ago and he asked me if I needed anything and I replied “just Cadbury Eggs.” So yesterday I get home from work and I see two Cadbury Eggs sitting around and I was super hungry so I ate one. Kaylee caught me and asked if it was delicious and I said, “yes! It’s super delicious.” And she replied that she was so glad that it was delicious and so glad that I was enjoying it. Then she went back to cleaning her room.
When the girls finished cleaning their room Brandon said, “And now you can have the Cadbury Eggs I promised you!” And Kaylee was all, “oh, Mommy already ate mine. That’s ok.” And Brandon was all, “wha-huh?” So it turns out he had bought me Cadbury Mini Eggs and then today at the girls request he had bought each of them a Cadbury Cream Egg. Totally different species, yes? And I felt sooo bad. But Kaylee was fine with it! She said she was glad that it was delicious and glad that I had enjoyed it because she just wanted me to be happy! So I bought a 4 pack today and gave her 2.
last week I was given three “drop everything and do this right away” sorts of projects on Wednesday. Thursday I had two programs, a meeting, and so I got just a little bit done. Friday I was sick. Sunday I was only in 4 hours, was on desk the whole time, and we were busy. Yesterday and Today I worked my butt off (despite a program and 2 meetings) and got the two biggest and most important done. One more to go! I am quite proud of myself.
(OH MY GOD you guys, I just had the best conversation with a 3 year old girl who was telling me how great she is at search and find books and I was ooing and ahing and then I asked her if she is going to be a detective when she grows up and she said “no. A geologist!” and I think I died a little. Why are kids such perfection?)
Social Justice Warrior?? okay but we’re gonna need a Social Justice Thief and a Social Justice Cleric cuz I’m a Social Justice Witch and don’t have party heals. Might need a Social Justice Paladin if the war isn’t specced into defense plus maybe another Social Justice DPS to round the party out
A book on the worst oil spills ever? Copyright date 1991? Guess who JUST GOT AROUND TO WEEDING THIS!
in my (questionable) defense, it circulated! So it never showed up on my dead reports (books that haven’t circulated in 18 months)! But is it a good defense that I let my patrons read dated information? No, it is not.
I bought Skyrim last night because I have a three day weekend and I would need something fun because of all the STUFF I'm going yo get done around the house
And now it’s dinner time and I don’t know what happened. I mean - I beat up a bard who was being inappropriate with the fruit seller and I beat up (and got beat up by) a bunch of bandits and skeletons and THERE BE DRAGONS but wow. This game could steal your whole life.
So I was doing a round upstairs, just making sure everything is ok and nobody needs anything, and I see this big group of teens. Doing homework? They’ve got books spread everywhere and they are having an intense discussion with lots of scribbling in notebooks. As I walk past I overhear, “in this situation I think the best scenario is just … don’t become a zombie.”
