 24 hours.  I HAVE WORKED 24 HOURS THIS WEEK, PEOPLE!! *joy*

Okay, okay, this might not look that impressive to you full-time 9-5 working stiffs, but for someone who has only been able to secure part-time work for the last year-and-a-half, this is momentous news.  Especially since in a couple of weeks, I'm signed up to sub for 31 hours in one week (including a couple of 8-9 hour days.  Well, the nine-hour day is including an hour lunch break, but I'm not going to get paid for that, obviously).

So, I've been working.  And it's made me tired.  But it's a good tired, like I've said before.  The only complaint I have is that I've been working more hours in the backroom than actually with the patrons.  It's not like I'm on a probation where I can't help patrons until I have so many hours being the grunt girl and then I can work the front desk because I've done plenty of front desk hours so far.  It's just how the scheduling works - sometimes you're up front, sometimes they hide you in the back where you lug books, shelve DVDs and sweat your armpits off (if there is any justice in this world, that little chub on my tummy will melt off from all the lifting and running about I've done).

Though I will admit, just looking at the stuff I've had to check in - kind of makes me want to start reading or watching some of this stuff.  I've never seen any of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but the library has it and there's no reason I couldn't check it out and watch it (I think it's on Netflix too, if I wanted to go that route).  Same with Battlestar Galactica.  And there's so, so, SO much YA stuff that looks good too.  There's a manga version of "Much Ado About Nothing" and I actually squealed when I saw that sitting on the cart (the other circ staff looked at me like I was nuts, but I didn't care).  I'm also a little curious as to what the big fuss is about authors like Janet Evanovich and Dean Koontz.  Not curious enough to put myself on the hold list for those books, mind (for those hold lists are long and legendary - I've hardly touched a copy of "Sizzlin' Seventeen" without a hold slip being spat out at me), but just wondering why those books are so popular.  Besides, I've checked out plenty of other stuff that I'm enjoying, so let me get through this stack before I start borrowing more crap.

In the meantime, I have a paper due on Monday that I decided to change topics on mid-stream.  Off to toil away!
