Another point against

As a general rule at work, a baseline so to speak, I fool around. I consider it my main job. But I like to punctuate that fooling around with occasional bouts of hard work. It's just to keep a hand in, or for self respect, or out of necessity and commitment to the institution, or to avoid trouble, or to make the time pass, or even simply to flex my library worker muscles. But the thing that never fails to surprise me when I launch in on a bit of vigorous work is just how crappy and in messed up shape everything is around here.

What I want to know is:

What are all these people who appear to be working all the time actually doing?


  1. Check their resumes for acting school or related experience. Sounds as if some of them may be quite talented thespians.

    1. I'm not sure. I think faking work might be an ancient human trait, as common talk of the weather.


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.
