Here’s the deal. I posted on my FB status, “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderly again.” I don’t think anyone got it. I know; it is obscure.

To further the idea that nobody really “gets” me, here is a list of new words. New to me, that is. This is what we do for fun at the library.

inimical – I thought I knew this one but I didn’t.

abrogate

incunabula

didactic

chiaroscuro

vexillology

levin

And with that, I wish you a good night.

 

A little poem for all you lovers out there

Lest you forget the good things in life, I present

ee cummings

may i feel said he
(i’ll squeal said she
just once said he)
it’s fun said she

(may i touch said he
how much said she
a lot said he)

(let’s go said he
not too far said she
what’s too far said he
where you are said she)

may i stay said he
(which way said she
like this said he
if you kiss said she

may i move said he
is it love said she)
if you’re willing said he 
(but you’re killing said she

but it’s life said he
but your wife said she

(tiptop said he
don’t stop said she
oh no said he)

(cccome?said he
ummm said she)

(you are Mine said she)

Good news, I guess.

Work has been fairly interesting lately. Two of the high school pages have quit in the last month, one of my favorite people, the inter-library loan lady found out she has pancreatic cancer and we haven’t seen her since. I miss her so much. And then yesterday the full-time equivalent of me got canned. My boss offered me the job on the spot.

Full-time will mean benefits like health insurance and leave. But I have to work longer hours. Like until 6 or 7 three nights a week. They said they could move things around on Fridays so I can take the kids to see their dad.

Like my step-dad says, “If you like the job then do it. If you don’t then it isn’t worth it.” Well, I love it, and I am sure he is right.

I am gonna really miss my Wednesdays off.
