Desperation

Gack. I'm at the library. I must really be desperate. It's sad how addicted I am to this. Not that the library is desperate, I just don't normally use the Internet here. But since mine's still being evil, if that's what it takes to keep in touch with y'all...

I just realized that my title is the same as a Stephen King book. Kind of appropriate in a way. Not just cause I finished It but because it has to do to Maine, the apparent home of clown-like entities and UFOs and pets that rise from the grave. Maine, where our head manager is moving in two weeks. Kathleen may not give me much credit for having common sense (I probably don't deserve it anyway), but she's a really cool person and I hate that she's leaving. I can't get over that it's Maine. The other end of the country, might as well be the other end of the world. What do they eat there? Do they talk funny? Will her new associates be nice to her?

Plus, we just got a new manager. And it's not that I didn't like Candis, the old one, but she just moved to the Augusta store, and Tammy's pretty cool. But Kathleen is different, I guess. For one thing, she's the head manager, and she's a very protective person, always looking out for everyone. And for another, they haven't found anyone to replace her yet, she wasn't actually supposed to tell us until they did. But nobody at BBW can keep their mouth shut anyway. I guess change has to come, but it stinks sometimes. I'll still love my job, unless they get some real fiend, but it's not going to be the same.

The library is OK, as long as you're not mistaken for a homeless person.

Not that there's anything wrong with...oh, never mind--I've never been politically correct, and I'm not about to start now.

Welcome back--sort of. What's going on with your Internet connection at home?

Many times, I too have succumbed to the lure of library internet.

I have never gone to the library for the sole purpose of using their Internet. I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that the CA library system makes beautiful buildings, but they are not much more than beautiful and certainly do not resemble any kind of functionality. Not that I'm bitter...

good luck with whoever they hire. Make sure to let her know who's REALLY running things at BBW.

I'm glad to know I'm not alone in my addiction (as Steve so kindly puts it) ;)

Hope things work out with the new manager!

my oldest daughters name is candice, close to candis
i'm sure everything will be ok, it's nice to be safe and secure in a routine, but sometimes change is good too.

In 2nd grade a girl named Candace came to my class from Indonesia for a few weeks because of air pollution I'm guessing. She was a cool kid so I gave her a book that I got from book order, but it came in a set and I already had that one. So then her mom bought me a little bean-stuffed turkey. And I think I named him Mr. Gobble or something. Then she left. It was flippin sad.

Oops, sorry...heh, heh...

*glares at Jeff*

You are evil.

But god says love your enemies.

So you can have some love.

*glares harder*

You know, Fanta, giving someone the "Evil Eye" is a voodoo thing...

I feel bad that you had to use the library. I've only had to do it once and I felt a great time pressure to do what I had to do and get off so the next person could use it. Kind of like an Internet cafe, even though you're not paying directly for it. Same reason I don't like taxis--can't relax and enjoy the ride with the meter running.

The reason I can't enjoy a taxi ride is because of the way the drivers drive.

Mmmm, nice quiet library. Early, beat the crowds of homeless people and desperate college students.

Ahh, dark spot behind the genealogical records section.

Hi Nettie! It stinks when good people leave, especially managers. So sorry for you! I'm sure they'll find someone superfantastic, though. :)

WEll, Miss Nettie, I think your new manager will be just fine. One think you can always depend on in this world and it is change. Roll with the punches girl.
