Tales from a community college library.

"I'm sorry, I know you're wearing headphones, but your music is still too loud."
*grumpy disbelief*
"You're listening to Evanescence, Bring me to life."
*sheepishly turns down cd player*


A student hands me a pile of old textbooks that he wants to donate to the library.
"Would you like a receipt for these, for tax purposes?"
"No, thanks. I don't get taxed much these days."


If you are polite, earnest, and listen to me, you can ask as many stupid questions as you like. But please stop picking your nose while you do it.

This summer has been too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry, too sunny, too grey, and full of people who are endlessly grumpy about the weather. This has been a wonderful summer. It feels like summer in Virginia, like home.

Oh, and just in case you're still confused, August is supposed to be warm. Deliciously warm, heat that soaks in through your skin until you can feel it pushing on your organs warm. Out of breath in a hot car feeling the first sweat slide between your breasts and crawl over your scalp warm. Cozy blanket across your shoulders holding your head in its lap warm. Heat so tangible that it fills your stomach and stands between your mind and your body, rendering you into a Being that is Now, that basks, that shimmers like blacktop, that fills and empties with sensation, time, mercury, light. Heat that makes a person into a sundial.

And by the way, it cold in the library.
