Today, when I went to the library to pick up my reserves and return some other books, I encountered a new librarian. I approached with caution.
Librarian: Hah, sweetie!
Me: Hi. I've got some returns.
Librarian: Ok, hon.
[I relax. But then...]
Librarian: Oh lawdy! Oh lawdy, this is so embarrassing. Did you check these out? You sure they're not your reserves?
Librarian: Oh lawd, it keeps telling me "X." Why is it telling me X? Why? [looks at the other librarian, who is yelling at a patron. Then she grabs a calm woman with red hair.] Why is it telling me to press "X"?
Redhead: [shrugs] I dunno. Press X.
[Librarian presses X.]
Librarian: [with a sigh of relief] Whew, there we go. That was so embarrassing! Lawdy.
Why, when I go to the library, do I feel like I'm entering the Twilight Zone? Oh well. I think it's only my branch, too. The other branches seem eminently normal :)
News on knitting. I decided I want to learn from the experts. I was encountering a roadblock with the Internet directions. I think I have the gist of it, but I want to make sure I'm doing it right. So I signed up for a class at a super-cute knitting cafe. It only meets twice, on Feb. 27 and March 6. I can't wait!
We trudged through the snow for dinner last night, but decided not to see Music and Lyrics afterward, due to the ickiness of the weather. We might see it this weekend.
