If you look at my collection of icons as a whole...

You might think I was a little teeny-tiny bit obsessed with David Tennant.

*cough* Yeah...

If you are a fan of Robert Pattinson do not read this. I am not a fan. I also talk about Water for Elephants )

I apologize if I offended any of you with my non-Robert Pattinson liking.

Sooo... what else can I talk about today? Can you believe Lost is almost over? I kind of fell out of watching it for awhile last season but now I'm hooked again. There are still characters I wholeheartedly dislike, but I'm eager to see how everything is going to turn out.

Chuck is still fantastic and STILL my favorite show on TV right now. Followed in a very strong second position by Castle. I am so happy that chances are good for a renewal of Chuck. I will be heartbroken if they cancel it. Adam and Zac and Yvonne and even Josh brighten my week when there's a new episode of Chuck. I love that show. LOVE IT. I'm so happy that my coworker is back next week so I won't be missing the show live! I don't mind watching OnDemand but I spend the next day avoiding Twitter and FB in an effort to not spoil myself!

Another thing I'm excited about: Crash Test Dummies have a new album out today and they're touring in support! No dates near me yet, but Brad did mention on the blog that they were looking at possibly coming to Atlanta. AWESOMESAUCE. Oh. Didn't I mention? I love the Crash Test Dummies. It's an unnaturally sized love. I want to scoop Brad Roberts up and cover his head with furry purry kisses. (OK, seriously. What have I been smoking the past two days? Oh, yeah, I know - INSOMNIA.) Honestly though, they are awesome. Their songs are fun and sometimes deliciously dirty (Look up the lyrics to a later CTD song I Don't Care If You Don't Mind). Another of my faves that I've never seen live. Can't wait!

My new dishwasher is marvelous. It's an ivory goddess lording over my kitchen. I was so happy to come home last night knowing that I wouldn't have to be scrubbing dishes all night long. It was wonderful. Julia was a little dubious when I told her it was all I could talk about yesterday but Adam confirmed it. I am a sad, dishwasher having lady.

IT's coming up on that time again. Yes. You guessed it. Summer Reading is just around the corner. Days filled with screaming children and puppet shows. Magicians and snot. Wild animals and the scent of poo.

I Did mention that, right? About two months ago a kid pooped on the floor, in the library, RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY DESK. Yes. It was disgusting. I just ... had to shake my head. His grandmother had just stuck him in the children's area while she went off to get on the computer. She came over to get him, saw the pile of poop, and just left with him in tow. Now, I didn't realize what was going on because my desk is rather high and I sit pretty low. I didn't realize until the smell hit me and someone came around the corner and commented on the poopy floor. I had just thought the kid had a dirty diaper. AND HOW.

UGH.

People are disgusting.

Anyway...

I've been having dreams about Top Gear. Probably haven't mentioned that I really like that show, have I? I haven't mentioned much of anything lately. I have no idea WHY I like that show, but I do. IT makes me giggle. I had a dream the other night that the hosts were all vampires. Richard Hammond and James May wanted to eat and kill me. Jeremy Clarkson thought I would make an excellent vampire and was trying to rescue me from being killed. Go figure. I've also been having loads of dreams about zombies. Two nights ago I was on a plane/boat/train that was full of zombies I was trying to escape from. No, really. It was a plane/boat/train. It had wings, it was on a track and in the water. Weirdness. It's no wonder I can now not sleep.

Two days and counting! WooHOOOOO! I'm hoping I'll get some sleep tonight but if it looks like I won't, I have some Tylenol PM to help.

I wonder if it's a day out of school or something. The library is suddenly teeming with kids and school hasn't been let out yet!

Well, I keep getting busier and busier and this entry has taken forever to write so I should probably go. Two days in a row though, WOOT! *hugs all around*

Have a great day!

List 10 books you have on your bookshelf that you think nobody else on your friends list has on theirs.

I wasn't sure whether I'd have anything unusual and then I got to looking and discovered I do have some things not everyone probably has.

1. Thy Father is a Gorbellied Codpiece: Create over 100,000 of Your Own Shakespearean Insults by Barry Kraft
2. The Howling Man by Charles Beaumont
3. The Illuminated Language of Flowers by Kate Greenaway
4. Nadya by Pat Murphy
5. No Bed of Roses by Joan Fontaine
6. Romancing the Stone by Catherine Lanigan (a.k.a. Joan Wilder)
7. Field Guide to Demons, Fairies, Fallen Angels, and Other Subversive Spirits by Carol Mack
8. Films of Gene Kelly by Tony Thomas
9. Vanity Fair's Hollywood by Christopher Hitchens
10. Charms, Spells, and Formulas by Ray Marlbrough




I don't know how many people are from the U.S. on my friends list but ... is anyone else having a problem with finding gas for your cars? Nearly every single gas station in my area is out of gas and those that AREN'T out are cutting pumps off at 2 p.m. today and not opening again until tomorrow. I almost didn't get home last night because there was no place to get gas. I had just BARELY enough to coast home but there's no way I'm going to be able to go out again. I'm sure that just cranking the car up will use up the rest of the gas in the tank.

I was so excited last Monday for the Heroes premiere. I still love that show. It's good to see that some things never change. Like ranty mcrantersons )

MAN! You would not BELIEVE the traffic we have at the library now. I saw an item on Good Morning America about how people are starting to use the library more because a> it's free and b> it's free! It's fantastic. I love my library. Unfortunately I do not love the new breed of patron we've been getting who want to demand, demand, demand and then not bring the items back. *THWACK* Also, who steals from the library? Honestly? It's FREE! All you have to do is check it out and you can watch the DVD as many times as you want or read the book as many times as you want. You can even bring it back and CHECK IT OUT AGAIN! You would not Believe how many DVDs we have lost. It's insane. My co-worker purchases the DVDs for our library and she bought the Christy complete series TV show DVD, you know? Someone took the whole set and put them in their backpack or something and walked out with them. Ridiculous!

I am so excited! I have The Fall on DVD! I get to watch it tomorrow! I can't wait! I hope it's as good as my brain keeps telling me it will be. The reviews were horrible. Well... doesn't really matter. At least there's Lee Pace to watch. He's fantastic. I watched Miss Pettigrew Lives for the Day and he was great in that. Well, I can't single him out. The entire cast was FANTASTIC. I need to own that movie.

Well, I think I've babbled on about absolutely nothing long enough. I've got two storytimes next week that I need to prepare for. I hope you are all doing well! *hugs* *massive hugs*

Much love to everyone!!
