So, this exists. It's a visual novel called I Love You, Colonel Sanders! You can date Hot Colonel Sanders, and KFC is the game's actual publisher. I'm amusing myself by imagining the corporate meetings that led to this becoming a reality.
I've written more reviews this weekend than I have in a long while (a couple were only posted on my Blogger blog and on LibraryThing, because they were for TV series). I'm taking advantage of my sudden ability to actually write stuff again and trying to push out a few more. That means lots of digging through old notes, trying to piece together what I liked and didn't like about stuff I finished reading or watching months ago.
While working on my Log Horizon review, I came across this note, which makes sense in context but still struck me as funny:
"Society is saved by hamburgers that taste good."
Good food doesn't solve everything, but it can make things a little better. Here's hoping all of you have a very tasty next meal. :-)
I found out that one of the student workers in my department might not be coming back for the Fall semester (for reasons that are totally understandable, but still T_T). At full strength, my department consists of me, a full-time person I supervise, and two student workers that the person I supervise supervises. At the moment, it's me, one student worker who was able to work over the summer (who I'm currently supervising since there isn't anyone else to do it), and one student worker who'll be back at the start of Fall semester.
There's a decent possibility I might have my full-time staff position filled by August, but I don't know if they'll be able to manage training a new student worker by the start of Fall semester, so I may be handling that training as well. On the plus side, the student worker who is for sure going to be working during the Fall semester (unless the universe decides to hit me with more unpleasant surprises) is amazing. I wish the library could afford to pay her what she's worth, and that I could then keep her forever.
I had today off and was originally going to go book shopping, but that would have involved a couple hours of driving, and I just didn't feel up to it. Instead, I went to a local bakery and bought some amazing white chocolate cranberry orange scones, as well as a chocolate meringue pie that was half price so they could offload it before the weekend. Now I just have to restrain myself and not eat too much of my haul at once.
I was asked to get a physically impossible project done at work, basically "get all of these books hauled from point A to point B in three days." This same project would normally be accomplished over the course of several weeks, due to the number of available empty boxes, changing weather conditions, the number of boxes that can safely be hauled in a golf cart, and the number of books that can fit in a box while still allowing a likely elderly Friends of the Library member to lift it.
The project was modified from "haul ALL the books" to "we don't expect all, just get some" after I laid out all the numbers involved. Aw yeah, logic works sometimes. :-D
It turns out that at least some of my internet problems were being caused by the contractors replacing the siding on mine and neighboring apartment buildings. The internet repair guy called up my apartment management and let them know that they should talk to the contractors or expect charges every time someone from his company had to come put stuff back up that the contractors tore down.
Crossing my fingers that I'll have a more stable internet connection from here on out, with better overall speed.
