This kind of thing just shouldn’t happen

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Check out this news article.

I was out to breakfast this morning, with the ladies in my life and Jack. Jenny had been watching the news and they had a spot about a group of gay people who were attacked early in the morning. They called the police, and then the police came, let the attackers go, attacked the gays and then brought some of them to jail.

Does this really happen here?  I thought we were supposed to be a gay friendly city. Maybe its just because I surround myself with gay friendly people. It really makes me sick just thinking about it. What’s worse, is that more immediate action should have been taken, and it wasn’t.  I am ashamed of the police department for allowing this to happen. If it had me in that situation, and if the police who came didn’t like women, would that be allowed to happen? I thought the police were supposed to keep everyone safe. Obviously not, I guess.

Well, here’s one librarian that wants to see that justice is done swiftly.  Goodnight. 🙁

Fairport Canal Days

Saturday, June 2nd, 2007
I posted this on my library blog for the teens, and I thought why not share the wealth? Maybe someone will visit us?
I’ll be at the Fairport Canal Days helping out at the Teen Book Festival booth on Sunday. We’re already preparing for next year! Come and visit me!TBF has a booth right outside the Library on South Main Street just south of the Canal Bridge. Its actually right in front of CandyNation (yummy!) which is right next to the Main Street entrance to the Library. We will sell TBF t-shirts, tote bags, bookmarks, and dog tags and have a save the date bookmark. (Yippee!) And for those of you who can’t get enough food Krispy Kreme Discount Cards. All proceeds from the t-shirts etc will go right to the TBF.Canal Days runs this Saturday from 10-6 and Sunday 10-5. Main Street will be closed by 9am each day to any kind of vehicle traffic.

For more information on the Canal Days check out the link here.

Someone called and asked for the book Crispin. I have never read it before, but I immediately said “Oh yeah, that book by Avi.” About 1/2 hour later someone asked for the DaVinci Code and I couldn’t for the life of me remember who wrote it. Egads.

It’s still early, but I can’t wait, so…

Pregnant... Again

Yup. I took the test on Thursday. We estimated that I’m about 4 weeks along, so its still early, but I couldn’t wait to tell the world.

Oh and that’s Jack’s BIG BOY BED in the background! He sleeps all night in there, and he loves it so much that Jeff says throughout the day Jack will jump in bed and just hang out there. Last night we were hanging out in the living room and when he was ready for bed, he just went upstairs by himself and curled up in bed. He’s so cute!
