and i wasn't reading any of them, honest.

someone at work organized a volunteer opportunity at jumpstart, a place that matches up college students to work with kids in day care (head start, etc) one-on-one to make sure they're ready for school when they start going. they'd had some kind of book drive, and we got to sort the books.
something for preschool, or elementary, or young adult, or religious (this covered a fair range, since it included bible figures, halloween, valentines, anything on any holiday you've ever heard of, etc), or broken (:-(.
it was interesting to see the books that came in (i couldn't believe people donated some books _i'd_ never get rid of...), both good and atrocious. there are far too many babysitter's club level books, r l stine, books made by merchandizers. on the other hand, i saw some old favorites, too, so i guess the world is doing ok....

we left work a bit early to get downtown in time (the snow & all), and there was time to grab lunch at milk st cafe. yum. i don't get down there nearly enough (since i'm working in needham most days/times they're open, this is no big surprise). lunch was a slice of goat cheese and onion pizza, and it was great. (drool. i should've gotten more for later...).
and i was pleased to recognize a friend-of-friend i'd met once when we were walking on the street. (friend in question hadn't noticed her. maybe today i could even find waldo!)
