I think I'm sick....

So I got to work this morning (:-P) and realized that for the first time in recent memory, I didn't have a whole lot to do.  I'm up to date on book orders (nothing like spending somebody else's money on books!), I haven't been doing any indexing so there's nothing to update there, I can't actually go and do the indexing 'cause I'm the only one here & I've got to stay at the desk, and there's no point in weeding fiction since Carolyn won't be back until Tuesday.

My original Fiendishly Clever Plan (tm) to kick back with a bottomless cuppa and Kat Richardson's excellent Greywalker was foiled by patrons who kept showing up to actually use the library.  Contrary to popular belief, librarians do NOT sit around & read all day; we're expected to at least look like we're working (in the case of one of my co-workers, this is pretty much all she does).  So I happened to glance at the Massive Pile of Crap (pat. pending) on my desk, & I said, "Aha!  Maybe I can whittle that down a bit before it falls over on someone & they sue me!"  

Three hours and one very full garbage can later, my desk is actually cleaner than it was when I started working here.  I got rid of memos about our old computer system and publishers' catalogs from 2001.  And I didn't just throw stuff away; I actually FILED stuff!  Okay, some of it is filed in a big folder labelled "Miscellaneous Stuff," but it's filed!  I can see my Rolodex!  Hell, I can see my desk! 

I think maybe I'm coming down with something.  Surely this is a sign of a feverish brain??
