i hate you mlk (the library, not the civil rights leader - without you i would've had to work last monday)

Not only did you fuck up my hold on Q, you also managed to NOT have my copy of A Cook's Tour waiting for me despite the fact you sent me an email suggesting as much last Thursday, thereby forcing me to venture into the poorly arranged, weird smelling stacks to actually look for books myself. And as a testament to how completely inept you people are, while looking for the newish book by Kurt Anderson (Heyday - yeah, I'm lame), I saw out of the corner of my eye, there, on the shelf, despite having a hold placed on it some odd weeks ago, the library's sole copy of Q. I FUCKING HATE YOU PEOPLE! So I got that, and Heyday, Suite Francaise, and The World Without Us, which, despite my earlier intentions, I have decided to read first, as it segues nicely from World War Z's zombie apocalypse into a more unexplained, post-apocalyptic environment, speculating on what exactly would happen if humanity was wiped from the face of the planet. A very interesting concept, and while I'm curious as to how the author will maintain momentum for 300+ pages, I'm digging it so far.
