The Ask_A_Librarian application has been idle on Ms Kent's computer monitor for the last twenty minutes. It's name was shortened to Aska to match the diminished attention span of kids today. As Ms Kent reclined, her swivel chair creaked. She imagined that if she leaned back any further she would fall into the dark abyss. The library lights were programmed to turn off at 9pm because the library is now "green" but they failed to to take into account the Head Librarian who frequently stays after closing hours.
She took a breath of warm air and opened another button of her cotton blouse to reveal her cleavage glistening with beads of sweat. The maintenance staff also programmed the air conditioning system to switch off at 9pm. "I'm off to a great start", thought Ms Kent.
OH HAI MS KENT
She sat upright and her eyes narrowed as she stared at the screen. What irritated her was not the impersonation of her favourite actor but the font. That ugly font. The words were displayed in purple comic sans size 20. Having experience in graphic design Ms Kent is picky about her typefaces. She fancied Optima Pro Roman and bought the Server license for usage with Aska. Ms Kent asked the system administrator to set it as the default font of the application. She also put in a request to make it the only font available but he told her he'll get around to it but never did. Maybe it was because she turned down his offer for her to go on a date with him.
Ms Kent fingertips seemed to dance over the keyboard,
Can you please use Optima Pro Roman size 12. I sent a memo about changing fonts earlier this week.
I CANT MS I GOT IT LIKE THIS
Can you at least turn off caps lock?
WUTS CAPS LOCK?
Ms Kent sighed as she responded,
How can I help u?
I THINK I LEFT MY BOOK ON YOUR DESK TODAY. CAN U TELL ME IF U SEE IT? IT'S A BLACK BOOK NAMED FACE BOOK.
Ms Kent looked to her right then left.
I found it! The library will be open tomorrow at 8am to 4pm you can pick it up during those hours.
I JUST NEED U TO TELL ME WAT IS ON THE LAST PAGE. IT IS FOR A SPECIAL PROJECT I AM WORKING ON.
Flipping through the pages, Ms Kent saw pictures of female faces painted on each page. "They are soo beautiful!" she thought to herself.
Are you an artist?
IM SOMEWHAT OF AN ARTIST, I HOPE TO PAINT YOUR VISAGE ON MY FACE BOOK.
Ms Kent blushed at the thought of being the subject of such a talented artist. When she reached the last page, it had the words "This page left intentionally blank" printed on its discoloured pages. As she finished reading the sentence, everything suddenly went black. Her minded raced, "Was there a black out? I-I can't breathe!"
