Should I be doing something more productive than reading Something Positive? Probably. I'm up to March of this year in the archives.

I should take a walk to the Everett Library and see about getting a PIN for accessing my account online. It seems like I would have already done that, but I guess I haven't. This is so I can request Colloquial Icelandic, which is at the Wakefield library. learn_icelandic seems to think it's the second best book for learning Icelandic; the best book seems to be only available in Iceland. If I end up going there, I should remember to pick up a copy.

Contemplating the party tonight. I don't really feel like wearing a costume, and it's apparently a mandatory part of attending the party. And I'm not sure I'm in a party kind of mood, either. Well, okay, it's probably more that I'm just not really a party kind of person.

I get the feeling that costumes are strongly encouraged but not mandatory.

Speaking as one of the (presumed) hosts of the party in question, I too get that feeling. Costumes are great: they add to everyone's fun, and they're traditional for Halloween, of course. But I would rather my friends came costumeless than not at all -- by a longshot.

We do have one or two costumes kicking around we won't be using, by the way, so if you show up and they're not claimed yet, we can kit you out. So come in any case!

You can designate a PIN online-no need to go to the library (at least, that's true if they're affiliated with the BPL . I had mine the following day.

The Everett library is part of the North of Boston Library Exchange. I couldn't actually do it online, but had to go into the library to do it. And it wasn't one I could designate. The had these little cards with (what I could only assume were) sequential pre-printed PINs on them. They scanned my library card and then typed in that pin for me and gave me the little card. Fairly lame, but it got me out of the house for a nice walk on a nice day. They asked for my email address, too, so I assume I'll be getting an email when the book gets there. I really have no idea why one isn't able to take care of this online, though. Of course, they can't even keep their Web page up to date with their current hours.

Well, I'm with you on the 'lame' part. Although if you get an email when the book comes in, that's a bonus.
