Weekly Review: June 3 – June 7, 2019

Hello, everyone!

I apologize for the delay. My time went towards the frantic effort in finishing my thesis, so I did not make time for this blog. I should be finishing my thesis soon and be returning to a normal schedule for this blog. In any case, I only recall a few notable occurrences from the course of the week.

In terms of my office responsibilities, I encountered nothing too troublesome while cleaning the fifth-floor study hall. Entering the stacks proved more tricky. At some point, workers conducted some sort of maintenance in the stack and the situation required us to wear facemasks when entering the stacks. Fortunately, the shelving cart only held materials destined to the first floor and I did not need to stay too long in that environment.

As for the Home Movie Collection, I continued to watch through more films as usual when Mr. Ogreten asked me a favor. He told me that a donor wanted to view the footage of Disney World from the films donated by Barron Richter. So, I made a list with timestamps that featured where Mr. Richter filmed footage Disney World and gave it to Mr. Ogreten. He told me he was going to burn the footage on to a CD and send to the donor with a message to return it when he was done.

In the last group of videos, I saw the most unusual gift I’ve ever seen at a Christmas celebration: a singular tire wrapped in Christmas ribbons and a bow. From what I gathered, there did not seem to be other tires in the footage. I theorized that the tire recipient might use the tire as the base for a swing in the backyard. While I did not see any footage to confirm this theory, I did notice that the tire recipient remove a piece of jewelry from the tire. As to what I learned from watching the footage, I learned that a tire is a possible gift option (a terrifying prospect for the last minute shoppers during the Christmas seas).

On that note, that is all I recall from the week. Should I emember anything else, I will report it on this page. Until next weekend, enjoy next week and stay safe. Bye!
