The Librarian

Urgle ...

Put in 6.5 hours at work today. Drew a hellbatch ... music scores!!!!! EEEEEEyuck! In a normal cataloguing situation, scores aren't a big deal, but Calgary Public does a bunch of strange stuff and some "creative" call numbering that makes 'em a royal pain. On the plus side, at least I was getting to work on 'em in peace and quiet, without interruptions. So they're all done, all 30 or so, and I get to finish up the REAL'n'easy books in the batch on Monday morning. :-)

I think I've earned a couple of chocolate chip cookies. :-)
