So, today I start the Brand New Volunteer Job at Dad's library (yay, nepotism), which is basically just an excuse to get me out of the house and doing something until I feel confident that I can go to a paying job on a regular basis, and then can get said paying job. I'm not sure what I'm going to be doing (the part of the library Dad works in is a special collection of an already specialized library, so it's not like I'm going to just be a public library page or something), but he's said that there are three people he's going to tell that I'm available to be put to work, "and then they can fight over you". So I guess there's something useful I can do?

Mathematically, most of my programs have been reinstalled. However, I've saved the hard ones for last. I'm installing iTunes right now (rather, it's installed, but now I'm syncing it to my music library), but I'm going to be a chicken and wait until tonight to see what happens when I plug in the iPod. Anyone know if it will recognize this as the computer it knows, or if I'll have to reassign it?

(I'm also waiting to install WoW until I have a lot of time to devote to it. I'm not looking forward to that one; I know it takes for-bloody-ever.)

Think tummy is sufficiently awake now that I can grab a bowl of cereal. And then I get to brush my teeth sans running water. Joy. Good news is that the plumber is supposed to arrive today between 8a and 10a. The bad news is that Landlady is going to be the one here to deal with him. Other bad news is that I suspect he's going to cut up our ceiling to get to the damaged pipe(s), rather than go through the hardwood upstairs. I don't like having holes in my walls/ceilings. *sigh* Whoever ran the original pipes in this place was an idiot (the house isn't that old, and two major pipe bursts in six months is a very bad sign).

Alright, clothes, then brekkie, then creative toothbrushing, then train for 45 minutes (at least the website is actually listing delays, for once). 9-to-5, here we go!

I hope the library is a good, soothing place, and the competition for your free labor is intense!
