Time for a little catch up. And, yes, I've been bad about keeping up this blog. It will almost certainly continue that way. But I think we'll live.

Much work relief. I now have a full-time permanent position with the library. Whew! It's at the Emily Carr branch, which is really my first choice. Not too far from home, not too crazy (although by no means dead slow).

We are still in the middle of job actions, however. We have shut down the public internet terminals, are closed between 12 and 1 everyday as we all take lunch simultaneously, and have stopped collecting overdue fines. We've also had a few strike days here and there, some involving picketing and one where we all went to a "study session" at strike HQ, where we spent four hours listening to talk about pay equity. I drifted off for about ten minutes during hour three. Nobody noticed.

Still, at least I do have that new position. If I play my cards right, I'll never have to go through another job interview again.

I will try to post something half-way interesting next time.

You know, I don't think I've ever even been to any of the other branches. I would pass one every now and then on the bus, but that was about it. Are there less crazy people, or more?

Less in actual number, but probably about the same percentage. And each branch has its own unique loonies.

But remember Crazy Jesus Guy? The one with the red jacket that said "Jesus is light" or something similar on the back? Haven't seen him in ages, but the last couple of days he's shown up at Emily Carr!
