Random notes from the library

Random notes from the library:

It's almost like twitter around here today!

1. An old man called to renew a book. I asked him for the barcode number off of his library card. He read me the library's phone number.

2. We got a box of temporary tattoos in for a kid's event. The tattoos say "Read", a commandment that, when viewed, is fulfilled.

3. I saw The Dapper Man, who restlessly roams the genre fiction section making cell phone calls all day, complain (politely) to a woman in a study room that her cell phone call was disturbing him.

4. The library coffee shop, called Dunn Brothers, is now selling disposable, one shot coffee pods. Their orwellian advertising campaign? "Less Waste".


  1. I see myself in #1. Glad to know there are others like me who roam the earth.

    1. That's very positive! I tend to see myself in #3, but have trouble making peace with that one.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
