Back Into The Swing

Librarians may not get paid much, but you can't beat the time off. I get an obscene amount of paid holiday time, hence I was off work yesterday for Columbus Day.

Now I'm not going to complain about this, but holiday time is sort of a double-edged sword. I always come back to a massive, overflowing library book drop. This morning it took me and a library page over an hour to wade through it. A neat trick since all of my shelving carts are full and overflowing. I earned my keep by shelving videos and DVDs to free one of them up.

In other news I'm so bloody happy that the Angels beat the Skankies last night I can hardly stand it. If the Skanks had won I would have had a serious dilemma. I can't stand the White Sox either. What the heck would I have done if the Skanks and the White Sox made it to the ALCS? I probably would have been rooting for Chicago by default - but damn I would have felt dirty afterwards.

In reading news, I'm finally getting back into it. I took an extended break and literally didn't read a page out of any book for almost a week. I should have The Painted Rose by Donna Birdsell done by tomorrow.

I enjoyed the Painted Rose. Glad you're reading again.

Quite the game wasn't it? Now how much are they paying A-Rog, The Big Unit, Gary Sheffield etc again? And who was it who won the game for the Angels?
Sorry Tara.
I'm afraid this is where we part ways though. I'm hoping for the White Sox. We went to a Jays - White Sox series a few years ago in Chicago and I gotta cheer for a team I acutally saw in person in their home park.
