a boring post about the last hour

I hardly ever use the library as a source of reading material. I know this is pretty stupid of me, but that's sort of beside the point.

When I heard that there was a newish David Foster Wallace story, "Good Old Neon" in Conjunctions I wanted to get a copy. After finding that it wasn't online or in a full-text database, I thought about the library. Maybe because library == journals in my mind?

I didn't realize that they stopped carrying this publication in 1994 until I got to Suzzallo. Anyway, I remembered that it was also in The O. Henry Awards 2002, which is also in the library. I went to Odegaard and it was checked out.

Moral: my card-catalog skills could use work. So could the public card-catalog terminals, for that matter.
