Happy New Year. Now Get Back to Work

Well, it had to end sometime. My delightfully extended vacation has come to an end, which means it's back to the Reference & Cataloging Mines for me. Fortunately, the semester doesn't start until the 8th; that should help me to ease back into things. Mind you, I like my day job, but that's in general. I don't like every single thing about it and it's those parts I'm not thrilled about returning to. Oh well. Could be much worse, so I'll shut up about it.

Recent Reads: Well, finally finished Perdido Street Station (which was good in a depressing kind of way), but also Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life (bought with Christmas gift certificates) and Science Fiction of the 20th Century: An Illustrated History (a long delayed birthday gift, but worth the wait, thanks to its pretty pictures). In what I will hope to be an antidote to Perdido, I'm starting on Terry Pratchett's Night Watch.
