fun w/instant messenger 

nonny2: when librarians say X, they mean Y. go!
nonny2: that's a good question = i have no idea how i'm going to answer this question
nonny1: it's right over there=what, are you blind?
nonny2: there's a bathroom downstairs = please don't use the one up here.
nonny1: sure, I'll help you with the computer=what, are you blind?
nonny2: actually, don't worry about it, this happens to computers all of the time = you minimized your screen
nonny1: how may I help you?=even tho I'm not a shrink
nonny1: we can get any item you need=except back issues of "swank"
nonny2: excuse me, drinks aren't allow in the library = except my 2 liter stash of vodka gimlets
nonny1: to get downstairs you might try the stairs or the elevator=throw yourself off the balcony, will you?
nonny2: lol
nonny1: I have the hate in me
nonny2: no, sorry, that text book has been checked out = some other genious in your class was cheap and had the idea before you
nonny2: have a nice day = I know I will now that you're leaving
nonny1: yes, the da vinci code IS a very good book=sucker
nonny2: wait!
nonny2: you're going to read angels and demons
nonny1: the large print is over there=well, you probably are blind
nonny2: wow, you read it 12 times? That's great = I'm so happy there are bigger losers out there than me
nonny2: _Holes_ is a great book for young adults = I've never read it!
nonny1: lol
nonny1: those are some very interesting ideas, mr. snow/aclu guy=whoa, etc.
nonny2: ok, that's fine = you're an idiot
nonny1: let me put a hold on that for you right now=right after I put one on for myself because I didn't realize that item was available
nonny2: I'm sorry sir, we really can't do that = well, we could, but you're a jerk.
nonny2: May I help you with something? = I had to come over here and talk to you, because you look like you might set the library aflame
nonny1: listen, some of the patrons were complaining about the noise level/smell over here=I can't work in this kind of environment
nonny1: east of eden? sure=well, at least you'll be digging your head out of the tv for a few days
nonny2: i'm sorry, the computers are down = because the circ staff is drunk.
nonny2: east of eden? sure! = yeah, that's original
nonny2: nice to finally meet you, jim = we call you "bubble boy" behind your back

I'd be able to update this thing if only 

1. We'd hire someone.
2. That person would be working whenever something interesting happened.

4.8.03

Surprise! I have a blog but nothing to write about 

Not that I've, uh, ever had a blog before. Yep, I'm completely new at this game. The resemblence to that other blog is entirely coincidental. I'm just a big fan, that's all.

Summer Reading Program Scandal 

I was in charge of drawing names for the Adult Services Summer Reading Program prizes. I'm here to confess that it was not a random selection of accomplished readers.

Two entries I saw made me angry:



One gentleman was so bold enough to specifiy which prize he'd prefer, should he be chosen. Instant disqualification.

One woman so boldly wrote that the date for completion of the SRP should be 2-3 weeks later. Oops, did that fall in the recycling bin?


I chose the winners by examining all of the entries, seperating the kind souls that wrote positive comments about the program or the library on their log sheet.

After there were no more entries with nice words, I looked for handwriting which most likely came from elderly people. To these people I awarded tickets to the local theatre. They will probably enjoy seeing the show.
