I went to the Main Oakland Library for the first time yesterday. On my way, I saw a group of people picketing with signs that said, “Honk for Peace” and “Honk for Bush’s Impeachment”. Naturally, I honked and the group gave me a peace sign and a thumbs up. I believe this is the first opportunity I’ve had to honk for something other than anger at reckless driving since I’ve had my license. 😀
The library itself was quite a bit smaller than it appeared on the outside. The last time I used to frequent public libraries was when I was in high school in Philadelphia. They were sprawling, multi-floor libraries. The one I went to was not tiny, but not huge either. It was a little disappointing, but I think I will be going back often for some light reading.
We are so close to the end of our project at work that I can taste it. Seppo and I are thinking of taking a mini-vacation at some point. I wonder where we’ll go.
