The ins and outs of a young library media specialist's life. Rock, rock on.

Friday, May 18, 2007


I'm not feeling particularly verbose today. Apart from yesterday's amusement over Latawnya's Naughty Horse Tales and an actual good episode of Lost on Wednesday, this week kind of blew. But! As of today I officially have four weeks (and two days) to go before I am relieved from duty. School is a battlefield, people. A metaphorical one, maybe, but still: battles. On a field.

Today we were invited to bring our classes down for a "musical presentation" by some high school kids. As soon as the lights went down and the high schoolers started singing some jazzy rendition of a cabaret song I honestly thought I was going to need to resort to using the librarian death glares and sending students out to sit in the hallway. Instead, the 8th graders were rapt with attention and I found that it was myself I had to stop from snorting with laughter. Am I evil? Possibly. But those g.d. high schoolers took themselves very seriously and it was really difficult to concentrate when all I could think of that terrible movie High School Musical (which we thought would be hilarious to rent and watch while drinking; it was not) and other, even worse, musicals like From Justin to Kelly and West Side Story. Anyway, I was relieved that the kiddos liked it because I would have been hard pressed to stop them from laughing about something I found so ludicrous myself.

The rest of this week has been sucked up by inventory (which makes me cry inside) and allergies (which make me cry on the outside). I missed Book Club last night, I was too tired and tetchy from a week spent searching for random overhead projectors to haul my ass to Southie. I regretted not going as soon as it was too late to make it- but then I fell asleep and had strange dreams about having mouth surgery in my aunt's kitchen with an X-Acto knife, so I guess that probably means I needed the rest.

Tonight we've been invited to a couple of soirees. We'll see which one sounds appealing; by the time Chris gets home from work it'll probably be limited to whoever stays out the latest. And tomorrow: 28 Weeks Later. I need some zombies, yo. They're the only thing that can pull this week into a plus.

Lata, playas.

Lost was good, wasn't it? I was sitting there crying at the end, can't wait for next week. Hope you have a great weekend. I am now listening to Co-worker Eric giggle over Latawnya.

I thought love was a battlefield.

God I loved that video when I was a kid. I still do.

How best to put this? Um, you didn't dream the mouth surgery. Your aunt placed a small tracking device in your gums. I'm not sure why, nor do I know why she asked me to assist, but there you go.

What? I'm tired. Enjoy the zombies, but don't be surprised if you have nightmares about crawling through the pitch black London underground afterwards. I know I did.

If that was a dream, anyway.

PS - Aww, Charlie.

Oh, how I love LOST. I think we're going to have to form a support group to get us through the end of this season and NEXT FEBRUARY when our crack supply starts up again.

I myself am thinking I will go and see zombies today, assuming I feel like braving the Shrek-goers! BRAINS! Or, you know. Rage. Or whatever.

I hear you about your week... I'm swamped with end of year stuff-- reports and placements and end of year paperwork. Blech.

I busted out laughing that you listed west side story as one of the bad musicals, awesome.
