Talking to you is akin to being the star of my own personal Groundhog Day. Every morning it's the same litany of complaints, rants and passive-agressive threats. But I have finally found a way to deal with it. You see, I press my palm against the space heater under my desk; the pain distracts me. And no, that is not bacon I'm eating for breakfast, it's my  sizzling flesh. Carry on.

So this individual stumbles into the library, looking right and left, left and right. Heads over to the new periodicals shelve, which, truth be told, are pretty bare since most of our journals are electronic.  Looks around. Stumbles back over to me. "Not much to read there, eh?" he opines. I figure he's waiting for someone at the hospital and was looking for a nice Sports Illustrated to look through, which of course we don't have and the Journal of Sports Medicine swimsuit edition isn't out yet.  Starts to walk out, turns around and comes back to tell me how his research into sleep apnea debunks the medical mainstream belief that sleep deprivation is a contributing factor to many chronic health conditions and he has proof that the less sleep you get the better. And of course, I should believe him. He did kinda look like House, so that was ok though.

I was talking to some librarians who work at a local community college and they told me a great story-apparently they have a patron who is presumably homeless and comes in frequently looking rough.  One day he came in in a suit, and mentioned he had a job interview. So they're thinking, great, he's getting his act together. He sits down at a computer and hooks up a webcam for this job interview. They have to ask him to move since they have a class using the computer area. When they go over, they see that his job interview is for a pornographic website!

Good thing they got there before he presented his "qualifications"!!!
