After spending a wonderful week in and around Richmond VA which was both educational and fun, both relaxing and exhausting, I have returned to my beloved hometown.

My welcome back to NYC? The gargantuan waterbug we discovered on our ceiling on Sunday night, which took our entire arsenal of pest products and the creative use of a Swiffer mop to destroy.

My welcome back to the library? The patron this afternoon who threatened to a) blow up the library and b) attack us with a bazooka.

And no, I’m NOT kidding. Let’s see … how soon is it until my next vacation???
