No luck with the juniors - looks like Violet will have to work with Cymbalisty when she finally gets access to the Grainer diary. Kurt, however, seems to be getting lucky with Miranda. And maybe Violet has her eye on Jason...
Sigh. No luck with the new Junior Librarians, I'm afraid. Neither of them is sufficiently senior to be able to help me when I look at the Granier diary. Which means that I'm stuck going through Cymbalisty, my boss. He'll take a page out of the museum every night, we'll look at it together, I'll transcribe it and post it up here for you guys to have a look at. I have to say, nights-with-Cymbalisty aside I'm excited about the whole thing; no real work has been done on this manuscript yet, so we'll be the first to examine it properly.
On the subject of the new juniors, though, they do seem to be settling in rather well. In fact, I think Cymbalisty has taken quite a shine to Miranda. He's been talking to her more than he talks to me (which is quite a relief, to be honest), and I've noticed him popping a Ceretin a couple of times before he goes over to her desk to talk to her. I guess she's good-looking if you like that whole fluffy-hair, cute little nose look. Kurt certainly seems taken by her. They're going out to a PCAG event together tonight. I know I should be supportive but, really, I can't see it working out. She's just a bit too giggly-girly for him. Still, I guess you never know.
The other thing is that Kurt taking Miranda out leaves the field clear for me to try getting a little closer to Jason. He seems very calm and level-headed, kind of quiet but with the occasional flash of humour. He's also been very helpful with the manuscript stuff. Even though he's not qualified enough to help out with supervising me when I examine it, he was really interested when I asked for his help. He's asked about it quite a few times, and had found me some good reference material on understanding slang terms from that period, which should be helpful. Also, he's sort of dark and handsome. Hmmm... maybe if the Kurt/Miranda thing does work out, we could double-date.
