It's been a while. Let's see, what to begin with? I finished books 22 through 26 -- four of them are cheesy romance novels that really don't bear much commentary. But here's the titles in case you're curious about my taste (yes, I've been into more contemporary ones of late): Whole Lotta Trouble, Hot & Bothered, I'm No Angel, and The Damsel in This Dress. Yup, I've been to the local Baltimore County Public Library more recently -- in fact, I owe them a pretty big fine. It's hard when you're a librarian to get used to returning books on time -- I don't have fines in Baltimore City! If only I could flash a card or something and get out of all library fines. That would be awesome.

Anyway, I also read book 27, The Road to Purgatory, which is the sequel to The Road to Perdition. That one was actually really good. I have not actually read the graphic novel or the novelization of The Road to Perdition, but I saw the movie and enjoyed it. And the sequel is the story of what happens to Michael, the son. And it also includes a story about the father and how he came to become involved with the Looney family. I felt that the book told a good story and really evoked the era, so I would totally recommend it if you enjoyed the movie. Plus it was a pretty quick read.

Enough of the reading stuff, what's been going on? I worked a lot last week. It was a very long week, especially since I worked Saturday, volunteered at the Bash and got home at 11:30 pm, worked Sunday afternoon, and didn't get a day off until today. So, yeah, it's been a long week. But I've got a three day weekend coming up! I have to go to -- well, perhaps I should say, I get to go to -- a workshop at OCLC Capcon called "Writing for the Web." Hee. I already do that!! But because I'm on a couple of committees at work that relate to the library's website, my boss suggested that I go. Apparently he went a year or so ago and found it pretty useful. It seems that the two of us are going to become the go-to editorial people, so I might as well take advantage of free training.

It looks like I'm going to be going to this big musical festival-concert thing in May. It's called the HFStival because it's sponsored by the radio station HFS. Yeah, it looks like a really good time -- Coldplay, the Stereophonics, the Foo Fighters, and Garbage are going to be there. I heard about it and was convinced that I wouldn't be able to go because none of my friends here are so much into current music and/or have funds for stuff like this. But I did find someone. I just have to buy the tickets! I think it shall be quite a good time. I am looking forward to seeing the Foo Fighters and the Stereophonics!! Yay for summer concerts!!!!

And tomorrow I'm going to see the Yankees play the Orioles at Camden Yards. Baseball is usually pretty fun, and the weather is supposed to be pretty warm tomorrow. I hope so. I got a Mariano Riveria T-shirt when I was in New York and I am hoping to wear it tomorrow instead of my long sleeved T-shirt.

Alright, I should be getting to bed. Lots of stuff going on tomorrow.
