And now to finally tackle all those grad school e-mails.

I seriously overslept today, but i still managed to wash my hair, eat breakfast, make lunch, and even drop something off at the post office and still get to work on time. Go Team Me. There may be no I in team, but there is definitely a me.

No terribly exciting stories today.

I helped a nice elderly couple access their son's online wedding photo album and bantered with the father of a gothy kid (e-mail=blacktowerdiablo) who was getting a replacement card.

Speaking of replacement cards... a woman's card was wearing out and she asked if she could get a new one. I said sure, but it would be a dollar for the replacement card. "I've had this card for 12 years and you're telling me I have to pay a dollar because it's a piece of crap?" We might actually replace people's cards for free, i don't actually know/remember since it happens so rarely that cards merely wear out (usually they break or get lost or people move away or whatever) but i am not inclined to be helpful if you are gonna get pissy. I responded with something noncommittal and she left in a huff.

Early in the day a guy was looking for a novel, said the catalog told him it was available but it wasn't on the shelf. I asked if it was a new book and he said yes, still fairly new, came out a month or two ago. I directed him to the New Fiction section. He came back still unsuccessful. I asked for the title and he gave me title and author, said it had a pale blue cover (i assume he had seen it in a books tore). I turned to the cart of returned-but-as-yet-unshelved fiction and after a bit plucked the book he had been seeking. He called me a genius. Have i mentioned that i'm easily won? He checked the book out and i told him he had a 10-cent fine. (I felt bad charging the guy money after he'd just had to search for the book he wanted.) Have i mentioned that he had a soft Irish accent? He said he would pay in "coppers" if that was okay. I happily took his ten pennies.
