As I type this I have gravel in my eyes, fire in my quads, and my feet feel like those of the Wicked Witch of the East? West? South? Wherever the hell she was from. You know, in The Wizard of Oz, when the house falls on her and her feet curl up so her witchy sister can't get the ruby slippers? Yeah, my feet feel like that.
I got up around 7 this morning to go for my workout before I got makeupped. Lovely morning....birds chirpling (new word), strangling humidity. I dodged the school kids waiting for the bus, came home, forced my hair into a straight mess instead of a curly mess, and I was off!
Got to the library at 9:00...learned how to open, and I found out I'll be getting a key when N goes on maternity leave. I'm getting a mad boner from the power trip...see 8=====o~~~ (blue balls). I realize that was gross. Leave me alone.
The short version of the morning:
Checked in books
Checked out books
....you get the picture. There was much sorting to be done this morning, and the sorting happens at an odd angle for the back. I wanted to remove my own spine after all the bending and sorting. Perhaps Dr. Claw has a kit for that, too.
Went to lunch at one and here's how the afternoon shaped up:
Checked in and out books
Issued some new library cards
And then I went home.
Have you any idea how much stooping and crouching is involved in shelving books? I'm doped up right now to help me forget how much stooping and crouching is involved in shelving books. It all boils down to this: I'm spoiled to working two days a week...not on my feet. I'm now working 5.5 days a week, and out of those days I'll be on my feet for four days. But I'm making mad money. That's a consolation. And I no longer have to do any lunges....because, did I mention the stooping and crouching?
In all seriousness, the women I work with are hilarious, the eight hours passed by in two shakes (of a lamb's tail), and I think I'm really going to enjoy this. ME also offered me a position as the director of the Tuesday Night book group. I want it, but I doubt my grad school schedule will allow it. So much for being a leader. *sob*
My TV viewing tonight: The Bachelor (because it's so damn sick!), and SuperNanny (I wanna be Jo Frost).
