What I'm doing between questions: checked catalog for Hugo award winners then started an order for the nominees and winners (can only find one "best related work" title in Baker & Taylor--what the heck?!)

11:00 in the children's room
  • oops, thought I was supposed to be here at noon...oh, well, it was dead anyway

2:00 in the children's room
  • Someone made off with our scratch paper bin--it was MIA yesterday too. We find another and I cut up some paper to fill it
  • At ten after a woman comes in to use the computers; otherwise I'm alone in here {yawn}
  • Bathroom key ... and returned
  • Programming stuff for kids
  • Chapter books [we find the A to Z books and Katie Kazoo...hurrah]

4:00 in the children's room
  • Best Christmas Pageant Ever [nearby community theater performing it this year]
  • Adventures in Cartooning [checked out, so I reserve it]
  • Books on learning Spanish [little girl actually knows Spanish but won't speak it back to her mom]
  • Family I know comes in, missing the oldest because he kicked his sister and had to miss the library trip [how awesome that missing the library is a punishment!]
  • Folk tale for 4th grade ... in English [hurrah--those we have] -- "Paul Bunyan is a classic, right? asks dad [uhm,]
  • I hear a voice growling at someone, look up, and it's a MOM, son walks into the room away from her, and she reminds him to hurry, at which point he whirls around and says, "Forget it, let's just go" [lots of crabby today]
  • A small sweet boy dances into the room, arms up, humming [this is why I like kids--how many (sane) adults dance into a room?!]
  • Scratch paper
  • "Headphones at my computer aren't working..." [so, move to a computer where they are...really ppl, especially kids, I know that 90% of you are carrying earbuds/earphones in your backpacks; use 'em!]
