The Friday Update

For those weird weeks when I really had no Finds.. insane.. I know..

So, what's up with me?

  • Started my new job - but no kids yet this week.
  • Will start teaching/hanging around the lab for the tech curriculum next week
  • Hopefully going to meet with my mentor and figure out how to start ordering books!
  • I got contacted by Junior Library Guild today about their cool ordering program (met them at ALA).
  • Won a contest or two.
  • Lined up some cool author interviews and some new books to review (hopefully some will come this week!)
  • Thinking about zombies...
  • Two more books to read to hit the 10 book mark for the comment contest - if I fail, I'll throw in a few free e-books I have.
  • Trying to figure out how to make dishwashing manageable with my commute and new schedule.
  • Figure if I'm religious about it - I can finish an audiobook or two a week.
Hrmmmmmmm what else.

My grandmother is driving me nuts and we've eliminated regular food from the wedding reception - changed the time to 2-4 instead of 2-5. I need to get to Galena hopefully before 9 pm!

Alright, I'm so incredibly exhausted. Yay for Friday - one more full day of work (which is sucking right now because all I'm doing is typing kids' names into a billion different programs). Oh yeah and I don't have a library display up! *panics*

Weekend plans:
Blog work (most def.)
Watch a movie - possibly... one? Or at least finish my Black Lagoon disc from Netflix (I admit to being an anime geek).
Clean part of my apartment.. not sure which part. . .
and ... Sunday dinner with the future in-laws (as usual).

Okay, random facts about me:
-Supposedly I have a cute sneeze.. sound wise at least.
-My favorite TV show as a kid was Gummi Bears
-I love rock music - Breaking Benjamin, Sick Puppies, and much much more (but I listen to all sorts of other genres too).
-I'm growing my hair out for my wedding and I hate dealing with tangles... seriously, I haven't had a tangle since I was a kid! Grrr.

Alright, that's about it. Hey, can you guys do me a favor?



Okay, ask me some questions, anything you like... and then when I don't have any Friday finds, I'll post the answers! Or next week... if you're all dying to know.



  1. I'm thinking, dreaming, breathing zombies - if they aren't too careful, I'm sure I'll be eating them very very soon! :D

    1) Team Zombie or other? What made you decide to be on Team Zombie or other?

    2) What book would you recommend as a good cheer-me-upper?

    3) What would you do for some delicious cookies?

    4) What are your favorite cookies?

  10. Hmm a question?

    For your wedding if you couldn't find a dress which would you rather wear a duck suit with lots of weird designs on it and lots of bows or wear a curtain with like no style to it(I mean like just tied so it stays on)and the color is barf green.

  15. Gummi Bears were awesome. Especially Tummi Gummi

    And I haven't heard of a show called Gummi Bears.

  18. Questions...ummm I'm not sure if these have been asked. I don't really want to read everyone else's comments to find out. So here goes nothing

    2. What are your favorite genres to read? and Why?

    3. Do you have any other hobbies you enjoy, besides reading?

    My brain has gone blank. If I think of anymore, I'll let you know.
