Ice? What Ice? We Don't See Any....Oops.

Although the state of Massachusetts is covered in a beautiful layer of ice and most of the teachers in the state are still lying comfortably in their beds, I am here. I am here, and I've been spending the last hour debating prices on things like book glue, polyester book covers, spine label protectors, and adhesive remover. It's a task only a librarian could love.

I suppose I probably shouldn't complain about not having off today since I did get to celebrate Martin Luther King's dream yesterday by shopping on Newbury Street and lunch in Kenmore.

It's just that it's so... icy. And cold. And wet. I thought we had decided we were done with the whole "having a winter" thing?

The long weekend was pretty decent, despite being shut down when we tried to go to the Museum of Science (I read the times wrong on their website- apparently they close at 5 p.m. What kind of museum closes at 5 p.m. on a weekend?!) Instead we ended up heading down to Harvard Square to see the new Guillermo del Toro movie Pan's Labyrinth which was both scary as hell and dismally depressing. A nice Saturday evening pick-me-up. It is also subtitled; we happened to choose the seats directly behind the gentleman with the largest head in the movie theater, who also happened to be unable to remain still for more than 35 seconds. It meant a bit of shifting about (and by a bit I mean a solid two-hour stretch of bobbing our heads left and right) to catch what was being said; I was thankful I'm a quick reader. We also watched a nail-biting football game by the fire with the parentals and did some cleaning house.

How would you like this thing chasing you around your dreams?

And onwards to the working week! I am so ready to kick some ass. Right after a little nap.

Yeah, I had to work yesterday as well. Federal Reserve is closed but we soldier on.

This is the 2nd thing about Pan's Labrynith I've seen today and I am thinking no, won't be seeing it.

I am so completely done with winter and we've only really had two days of snow. It's still just so overrated.

I'd be ok if winter decided to function normally, but when it's 70 one week and 8 the next it makes me feel funny. And by funny, I mean ill.
