More of my weirdness.

Let me set the mood.

I somehow mentioned that I would put on DDR programs at other libraries for $100. I’ve gotten quite a few requests, which is nice because we are going to Disneyworld in January and it would be nice to have some extra money. Plus I’d like to buy an mp3 player with a hard drive so that I can 1) listen to my whole collection of cds 2) listen to audio books, and 3) have pictures of Jack at the ready.

So there it is, I am given $100 to go around from library to library and make a fool of myself and let the teens play DDR.

Today I went to Fairport. If you remember past posts, I applied for a job at Fairport. I really really wanted this job. And I didn’t get it. Therefor I really wanted to make those people at Fairport jealous. Really jealous. I wanted them to think I was this super-cool, put together librarian that knew what she was doing. My husband and I had figured out what the best settings were and how to set everything up. If it had been a PS2, there would be no problems, however I was using a PS1 that belongs to my sister, and I’m still not completely sure of the settings.

I spent about 30 minutes working out the settings, and then a couple of times in between players. I saw that Betsy stopped in once, and some of the other librarians stopped in a couple of times. I tried to give off a cool/laid back vibe, but I’m not sure how well I did.

I did meet a woman from the Pioneer system, (who I didn’t know was going to watch the program) that wanted to get ideas for bringing DDR to her library system. She asked me quite a few questions and I eventually gave her my business card. That was pretty neat.

I’m not too sure what Stephanie thinks of me, I guess I’m pretty consumed with making a good impression on other librarians. I really work on being involved with and well liked by other librarians.

Well, even though I felt like an ass, I know that the teens had a really good time. I think Stephanie’s going to get one for Fairport. Quite a few of the teens even said that if she buys one, they would come back every day! I would say that was a hit with the teens.

Beginning to fall asleep at the laptop. Time to go to bed. Good nighty-night.
