Patron coming in to fax papers: It’s me again Margaret!
Me: Um, did you just quote Lois Lowry?
Patron: No! It’s from a song.
Me: Hmmmm…….*goes to Google*.
Sooo…..the quote, “It’s me again, Margaret” DOES NOT come from Lois Lowry’s book. Nope.
It comes from this video.
Apparently, I missed out on this gem at some point. Darn.
This is a stupendously awesome commercial from a toy company called GoldieBlox, which has developed a set of interactive books and games to
The novel is not merely a vehicle for self-expression or for the rendition of one’s own personal life. I’m quite conservative in that way. I do see the novel as a vehicle for looking at society—an interface between language and what we choose to call reality, although even that is a very malleable substance. When I create characters in novels, those characters aren’t necessarily expressing something that is merely personal. I draw observations from a wide range of things.
Happy birthday to Margaret Atwood, born on this day in 1939.
GOOD MORNING TUMBLR
I’m so glad my South Louisiana neighbors were saved from destruction!
‘Let that son of a bitch go back to Mexico. There’s just so many things they’re doing that I don’t agree with. … Them junkies and hippies and food stamps (recipients) and all, they use the library to look at drugs and food stamps (on the Internet). I see them do it.’
That’s a quote from Mr. Lindel Toups, chair of the Parish Council in Lafourche, LA, in reference to Mexicans learning English at the Biblioteca Hispana, a Hispanic-language segment of the library system.

I know you all have probably seen this already but I’m re-blogging because this is MY home state! Texans always say, “Don’t Mess with Texas” but I promise, no one wants to cross an angry Cajun. I’m from North Louisiana, but the Southern part of my state needs your help!
Hawaii was awesome. I almost died hiking into a waterfall when some pesky rocks decided to fall off the side of a cliff, but it was totally worth it. I have some really fun librarian-ish Hawaii pics to post but I just got back Sunday night, had Staff Development Day bright and early at 7 AM yesterday, and then my first day back to work after 10 days today! I have so much catching up to do and my head is spinning. I found tons of library love in Hawaii and can’t wait to show y’all! I’m thinking of relocating. I wonder if that little open air beach-side library is hiring.
Stay tuned for pics :)
