I'm in an oddly good mood tonight. Tired as hell. But good nonetheless.

I found out why my boss is usually not in the best of moods. She hasn't been feeling very well lately. I didn't know why. But I somehow (without my knowledge) asked for extra work, so I stayed an additional half hour. Dead on my feet, but I was renewed with energy and helped out a little. She stays late every day because, well, she's the boss. But she also told me that she has had many, many benign tumors that are otherwise troublesome. At that point, I understood her snappy nature. I knew before that she "ran a tight ship." Just didn't know how tight. And now I know why. She's under extreme pressure as it is. Made worse by the tumors.

Evenings are stellar. I get to make dinner and then lie down to relax for the rest of the night. Good times.

I have my second interview either on Thursday or Friday. And I just noticed that I haven't heard back from the other job I was going to apply to. The one I wanted. Wanted being the operative word. Haven't heard a damn thing. I asked for an update over a week ago. ONE WEEK AGO. How difficult is it to email me back saying "I'm working on the paperwork now" or "Looks like we'll post it in a few weeks" or something, anything. But I haven't even gotten an email saying "I received your message and I'll get back to you." Pfft to that.

Well, I'm off to read. I like reading. I suppose that's why working in a bookstore is rather fitting. Apparently I read more than anyone else in the bookstore. Which is also a bad thing, since... I work in a bookstore, where we sell books. And I like books. Mmm books.

Scott bought RANCH! Mmm ranch.

Currently reading Eldest by Christopher Paolini. I'm such a kid. But he writes so beautifully. Very stimulating reading. Oh I have so many more books to read. Thanks for asking!

I really enjoyed Eragon, I need to check that new one out of the library! Is it good so far?

I forgot to tell you in my other comment when you asked what I was reading... I'm reading "Stormy" by Jim Kjelgaard. Now I'M the kid! I started rereading all of his books, I love reading children's novels like that, and I love Beverly Cleary. ^_^
