Hello loyal readers! I hope this recent holiday found you all stuffed with turkey and enjoying football and your families, and if that's not how you celebrate then I hope whatever you did brought you great joy!
I am happy to report that the library has finally been painted! And only seven months after I put in the work order! Now, you may read that and think seven months? Lady, you are loco! But please note, future prison librarians, things in prison do not move fast at all. Remember how I told you we still have Microsoft office 2003? Yeah, 7 months is like the speed of light around here.
Although, to be fair, the maintenance guys are awesome, and all my other tickets get processed really fast. Painting the library is hard work because you have to get lots of paint and move tons of books so they don't get paint splatter everywhere. And they did an amazing job. Mintern calls it "Buttercream." I am going to call it "Ivory Castle." Ha!
We are still working on an accent wall. For some reason they just laugh hysterically when I tell them it needs to be purple...
Until next time!
