Miss Information is totally freaked out

Well, after one semester of part time courses at library school, Miss Information decided that it was in the best interests of her brain cells to get it over with as quickly as possible--the ripping the bandaid off approach to higher education--and signed up for a full course load.

Because this did not seem doable alongside full time employment, she also began scouting around for a different job and is happy to announce that she started this week in a part time job at what simply has to be a far more interesting library than the last place.

So far she likes the new job. The staff are nice. They appear to enjoy public service. They were delighted to learn that Miss Information has been trained to use both the timesheets program and the AED machine.

Miss Information is delighted to be here, too. The customers at the previous branch didn't really need her and also, the staff only ever drank flavoured coffee--hazelnut...blegh, shudder. Besides that, the library was way too close to a large number of Chinese bakeries and Miss Information does not have the willpower to avoid those delicious creamy, custardy treats.

Working part time has unfortunately made Miss Information aware of something very disturbing--she has no life. This week, she's mainly been catching up on her sleep and bugging her cat. She needs to find some hobbies. Quickly.

Oh and on her way to work today she noticed that there's a Chinese bakery cart between the library and the subway. She can't believe it. They followed her here.

Oh, dear. I don't even know what an AED machine IS!

Perhaps the increased fat content of Chinese baked goods is offset by a decreased sugar content?!

I don't remember what the letters stand for, but the AED machine is what you use to shock a patron's heart should it stop due to learning of a large overdue fine or whatever. We have one too. You open the machine and it talks you through the defibrilation process. They have become increasingly popular in public places. So far, thankfully, no one in my branch has had to use the machine, but we were trained by the local fire dept.

There is no increased fat content. Chinese baked goods tend to be lower in fat and sugar. Which is why I'm not a big fan myself.
