24: A Day in a Librarian's Life: This takes place from 4:30pm - 11:59 pm


Programming note:
Items listed after 6:24 pm are projected. I am so not finishing this at 11:59 pm.

4:30 pm -4:34 pm

Stroll down the guard's station to retrieve the official LIC radio. This allows instant contact between the guards and I in case someone wants to bitch at me.

4:34 pm -4:35 pm

Did I mention that our building has 5 floors? The heck with the stairs, I'm taking the elevator

4:36 pm to 6:14 pm

Whale on that report like a banshee.

Dismayed but not surprised at the statistical results

Email results to supervisor

6:15 pm -6:20 pm

Bathroom

6:21 pm - 6: 55 pm

Email

Zone out

Finish this

Write down the things I have to do tomorrow.* The work items are are numerous and time-sensitive. Sheesh

7:55 pm to 7:15 pm

Take up LIC position in front of the elevators to prevent civilians from going up in them after close

Wait for all floors to clear

Return radio to guards

Wait for all units to sign out

Wish the staff a pleasant evening here in the city or wherever their final destination may be

Pray there are no unattended juveniles waiting outside. Call cops if there are and wait, wait, wait

7:15 pm - 7:45 pm

Drive home

7:45 pm

Greeted at the door by the cat who will be too disgusted at my late arrival to play nosey-nosey. She will want immediate chow

8:00 pm

Eat whatever wondrous leftovers or fresh stuff Mom has made

8:15 pm - 10:20 pm

Watch whatever I have recorded. Yeah, I'll probably zip through General Hospital (Yes, I DVR it. There's this hysterically brilliant and sweet character, Spinelli, that I am addicted to.) Rules for TV programmers in general: Don't hurt Spinelli, Don't hurt Chuck, Don't hurt Hiro, Don't hurt Hurley.

Do catch the 10:00 news.

10:20 pm - 11:59 pm

Weather's over. Don't care about sports

If all is good in the world, I will have the discipline to go to bed. Tomorrow is an 8-5 day.

*Most significant of tomorrow's activities are:

My house cleaners will do their thing (Yes, I have helpers. Yes, I have a bit of a problem that prevents me from cleaning the way I want to. I have high standards. I really could lower my standards a bit. You think I'm lazy? BITE ME)

My groceries will be delivered (see above)

LOST season premier!

Pork roast, mashed potatoes and gravy for my birthday supper!
