rainy days in a haunted mansion feel exactly how one might expect them to. i often think about lighting a fire in the fireplace and cozying up with a good book on the couch, but i resist that urge seeing as i'm a good employee and don't intend to change that reputation. sometimes at night i dream about being trapped in the museum, other times about living here...and while these are usually nightmares involving scary hauntings and while i get pretty spooked being here late at night [like when i have to close up after events], i still think this place is awesome. plus, i think it'll be nice having a changing work environment, with the galleries switching out in june. by then we'll be going from 2 dimly-lit galleries surrounding death and black and white photographs to bright and cheerful watercolor and oil paintings. we'll still have the murder movie playing in the theater exhibit but i think the art will perk things up and really prepare the museum for summer and warmth and happiness.

i had a rather disappointing [AWFUL] tuesday this week but things seem to be looking up again. my boss is back at work and threw a dum-dum sucker at me earlier...all is right with the world!
