I thought that I had the day off but when I found weevils in my pasta and then my blueberry bread mix I cleaned instead. I did a search for all my Tupperware and amazed myself with how many matching lids I found! I emptied out all my cupboards and pantry and checked all my food items and either threw it away or poured it into my bowls. I put one bag of sugar and one of flour in the freezer for the next few day. I then tore off labels and directions from the boxes and tapped them on the lids so I wouldn't forget what is what. Then I wiped down all the shelves and walls with bleached/comet water. Now my cupboards look pretty bare but I feel safer about what I will eat.
The game was pretty exciting. There was a huge turnover and the Rebels made a 54 yard fieldgoal. We won 13-12. Yahoo!
GUYS, IT IS STILL HOT!! Also I have been too distracted by an anime titled Kyou Kara Mao to do anything productive. I did spend 4 hours in a park this morning. Hence, HOT!
I had a short break at home then went to my friend's Lisa's birthday/house warming/concert party. It wasn't on purpose, but I stayed three hours there as well. I don't know. Maybe that is my limit. I got her a full hanging plant which she seemed to love and some wine which I hope she likes for I know nothing about wine. She has a friend who is a singer/songwriter named Jefferson Montoya. He performed for a little over an hour. He's really good. It was cool to have a personal concert for just the nine of us.

Yesterday I was at McD's around 7:30 am and an elderly woman kept looking at me. She finally leaned towards me and said, "I'm a psychic and I can tell from the lines on your forehead that important things are coming to you." She sat at my table and said that I had been hurt two times in love and something important in my career is heading my way. If I put $40 in my fist and made a wish...that is where I stopped her. No thank you, mam. "But this is something you must know and very important. What do you have with you to pay me?" Nothing, but thank you anyway. She walked away in a huff. When I left she was sitting outside by the door in a wheelchair and an empty cup. Jeez louise.
At work the same day after one hour the power went out. I was shelving books in the dark with no air. That was fun. After two hours they closed the library. First time that they had to close early in my library. They did say I would be paid for the rest of my hours so I should get two hours paid vacation. Yay!!
We made a point of eating healthy with a chicken stir fry. I feel that we didn't eat as much junk food as in the past years but we had plenty regardless.
We spent the morning doing errands including buying ink for the printer. That's expensive stuff, dude.
We ended up watching The Artist (excellent), The Bridges of Madison County (I kept thinking it was with Redford but Eastwood was great), Little Miss Sunshine (which is surprisingly good),The King and I (always great), and Our Idiot Brother (I could have done without this one). I didn't stay up quite so late for I have work this morning.
Jules had a luncheon appointment and that left me time to do some cleaning and reading. So that was good.
We ended up watching Finding Nemo (always a good bet), Raiders of the Lost Ark (my favorite Indy film-the fourth is never mentioned), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and rounded it out with a silly movie Six Days Seven Nights.
I stayed up until 2 am, a feat I haven't done in a long time.
This weekend is just the girl and me. Yesterday we watched five (yep 5) movies and ate junk food. We saw Post Grad (so predictable), Jeff Who Lives at Home (my favorite one so far), Elizabethtown (fairly good), True Grit (the remake), and Jaws. da dum daa dum.
I went and visited with Betty on Friday. We went to breakfast, then watched Jules swim in her pool while I lazed around, and then we went to see Capt. America Winter Soldier for the first time. She was not impressed but I enjoyed it.
Sunday I went to the ALA which is the American Library Association convention. It was awesome! I only went to the exhibits but there were tons. Jules and I walked for 3 and a half hours. I ended up with four tote bags full of books and swag. My shoulders are still sore from lugging them around. I have 27 new books with over half of them signed by the author. They are all advanced copies and unedited yet. I have only heard of two of the authors who signed my books, Holly Black and Mary Monroe. I missed seeing Maggie Stiefvator by one day and Judy Blume was going to be there but I really didn't want to stand in line for over an hour or however that very long line would've taken. The only money I needed to spend was the entry fee, a desperately needed full water bottle, and a new coffee cup that I am now sipping tea out of that has words printed all over it like Read, Relax, inspire, stories, etc.
After the ALA I went to Dotty's 50th birthday party. I saw relatives and friends that I hadn't seen for over a year. It was fun visiting and playing on their foosball table. I stayed later than expected I would, but only around 8 p.m.
I am worn out which is bad because at work they had to change my schedule around for the next two weeks. I work three days in a row instead of a break in-between and next week two days only but extended hours each day. They have expanded the children's section and they are re-carpeting the entire library. Which means that we have to take ALL the books off EVERY shelf and then re-shelve them after it's done. Fortunately they have divided it up into four sections to work on at a time, but still *sigh*. I still love my job anyway. :D

In honor of the two Metro police officers and woman who lost their lives yesterday from a senseless act of violence. “Two Las Vegas police officers were killed Sunday in an apparent ambush in a pizza restaurant that spilled over to a nearby Walmart store, where the two shooters committed suicide after shooting and killing a woman.” It was commited 1/2 mile from my home and I was only 40 minutes off from being in the store with the shooters. It’s very scary. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s families.
