    Tonight I could not tell the difference between my child’s or my cat’s whine-cry.

    (It was the cat.

    My cat is a freaking genius who did not used to whine-cry this way.)

    I gave someone a Starbucks gift card today, but for whatever reason I was super awkward about it. I just handed it to him and sort of scurried away. There were witnesses, and I’m still cringing.

    J was returning 3 out of the 4 book on CDs I had checked out from our local library. The librarian told him if I didn’t return the 4th one soon my privileges will be revoked. Wow. Look, I love our little library and I understand there are rules but 1) the timeframe on audiobooks is too short and 2) we’re not talking about new arrivals/waitlist new hotness books here, these are fairly old and boring 3) I tried to renew online but it wouldn’t let me since they were already due.

    Oh well, I’m halfway through it I wonder if I could try and see how much I get through tomorrow and if not just go return it this weekend :sad:

    That is the dumbest rule ever. Wtf?

    At my library you have to rack up £5 of charges before they lock your account. And that's only temp until they are paid.

    She did let him check out some new ones so maybe they are just trying to get stricter? Like I don’t mind paying a few bucks if I’m keeping it too long and breaking the rules, but don’t lock me out!

    I think there have been studies done that show that fees at the library are detrimental to populations that rely on them the most. I really do think all public libraries should go to an automatic renewal/fee free system. My public library only hounds me when someone else wants my book.

    I had to stop by Trader Joe's before work to get last minute Christmas stuff. Picked myself up a salad for lunch.

    I just remembered I also brought myself a salad for lunch. Guess I know what I'm having tomorrow!

    I wasn’t paying attention when I made my Amazon wish list and somehow listed the large-print versions of two of the books I was interested in.

    Can’t wait to learn about Harper Lee and a murder trial in text big enough for Charlene in row 34 to ogle.

    Charlene needs some real literature in her life anyways. Bitch thought Fifty Shades of Grey was good.

    It took me a bit to figure it out (hold down the button), but can I get the Harry Potter character one to work? Nope.

    I've had several people explain to me how to do it and I get it but it doesn't work for me. Dunno why. @RoryGilmore has decided I'm Cinderella, which I'll take haha

    I just opened the door on someone in a single bathroom who neglected to lock the door. And yet I am locked in my office, dying of embarrassment.

    Not my cone of shame but nearly. Walked out of the one stall restroom into the lobby. Some girl waved a prop axe in my general direction and made a guttural "hup" noise. The look on her face told me she definitely thought I was someone else.
