Buffalo Gals won't you come out tonight, and dance by the light of the moon

In my pursuit to gain more library experience before I graduate, and also start working strictly in my field, I sent out three resumes on Wednesday morning, with a fourth to be sent off tomorrow morning. Good news! I already recieved a call this afternoon from one of the libraries, and have an interview on Wednesday. Hooray. This is probably the farthest drive of the four, but at this point, I am jumping at the bit for something. The ideal would be getting a job at the library in the city I live, which is now hiring, but anything is better than nothing. Think happy thoughts...and send pixey dust my way.

With the resume writing and rewriting, cover letter writing and rewriting, and references writing and rewriting, I am ready for a break. That comes by way of an escape to Buffalo.

It is with much anticipation that I set out on the open road tomorrow afternoon for a weekend in Buffalo. I will be staying with GF friends, B1 & B2. B1 was a former housemate in Topside, our house at the farm; B2 another GFer, is B1's boyfriend. I can't believe that it has been over a year since B1 & B2 stayed with me for a couple days while they were en route to Napa Valley, where they lived for a year while B1 was in Culinary school.

I am looking forward to the time on the road; the journey being around 4 hours one way. I love road trips, and don't mind making them alone. It gives me so much time to listen to the radio, or books on CD, or just catch up on thoughts or ideas for writing. Unlike TSOldtimer, I love being in the car for long trips.

I am not sure what is in plan for the weekend. Both B1 & B2 have to work a bit on Saturday, so maybe this vagrant will tramp about the city off Buffalo and have something interesting to report of as the weekend progresses...? I will be taking my laptop and a stack of books...from my summer reading list, so who knows. I am hoping to visit at least one of the branches of the Buffalo Public Library, hopefully the main branch. We'll see. (This picture from It's a Wonderful Life, always makes me think of Buffalo-probably because George sings Buffalo Gals to Mary. I love that movie.)
Now, it is nearly midnight and I still need to head home and pack. So, in hope of better things to come, I leave you with my mantra for the journey:
