Some Choice Quotes.
Here are some lovely quotes for a librarian to use as an email signature, or if you just want to feel validated.

I particularly appreciate:
"I really didn't realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous group. ... You think they're just sitting at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn't mess with them. You know, they've had their budgets cut. They're paid nothing. Books are falling apart. The libraries are just like the ass end of everything, right?"
Michael Moore
(BuzzFlash interview, 13 March 2002)

Today, at lunch eating tacos with a researcher coworker, I mentioned library school and she perked up. "Oh right, you are a librarian! Then went on to ask me a reference question. "That is so going on your facebook profile!" other coworker Amy said. No, Amy. It is going on my blog.

Well, well.

So....I forgot the password to this email account/blog.
I tried in vain for seconds, nay MINUTES to remember it, I tried every combination of the three passwords I use for everything nonfinances related, I tried resetting it through blogspot and eventually through gmail.

FINALLY, months later, I was able to get in thanks to my delightful security setting of MY LIBRARY CARD NUMBER.
Ta da!

I have a knitting blog now too on wordpress
where I also talk about reading. I like books. And yarn.
