I want to be a LIBRARIAN! via Awful Library Books by marykelly48 on 7/13/09
I want to be a Librarian

Thanks to anonymous submitter for this wonderful relic from the past! Submitter says there is lots of information about the card catalog and finding good books. (I wonder if this counts as a good book?) I quickly breezed through the world cat holidings and A LOT of public libraries are hanging on to this title. Please do the profession a favor and get something more current.

Trust me, this book was not my inspiration for my career choice.

ALA, Going to via A Librarian's Guide to Etiquette by J on 7/9/09
Don't feel guilty about spending your library's money to travel to ALA. It is the one time of year when your colleagues and staff actually get to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the library without you in it. Everyone will agree that that is money well spent.

It's just a jump to the left...via Judging the Books by beth on 7/11/09

There's an image so frightening here that shakes me to the core and turns my insides into pudding just thinking about it. No, it's not the thought of traveling through time and meeting one's older, cross-dressing self as this young man has done.

That would be awesome. Look above that. See the girl falling through space? Egads! I can't think of anything more spectacularly frightening than to be precariously perched, not being able to hang on, to lose one's slippery hold .......... and then drop.

In The Name of Love and All the Little Fishies Make It Stop Department

'Jon & Kate Plus 8' plus one? via CNN.com Recently Published/Updated on 7/13/09
Just three weeks after Jon and Kate Gosselin announced their separation, there is speculation of a new plus-one in the mix for "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

Unemployment Department
Does commute seem shorter? Report confirms less traffic via CNN.com Recently Published/Updated on 7/8/09
Americans are spending less time stuck in traffic and wasting less gas, according to a new report. Yup. And it's because they have no jobs to go to and, frankly, can't afford the gas to just go joyriding. Nope, they're taking the bus to my library to use free internet to sign up for unemployment and look for jobs. Especially if they've never used a computer before.

Funny Pictures Department

Yes, we would like to rent a manger for the night… via Picture Is Unrelated - WTF Pictures by pizzaburger on 7/8/09
"All we have left is the manger suite, sir"

"Jesus Christ! You expect us to rock the house in a friggin' manger?"

Condom dresses are so vogue right now…
