This is a twofer tidbits day, with a bonus third!
- I double dog dare you to Facebook friend Kim Jong-il's grandson. He has bleached blond hair! And a his favorite movie is Love Actually! Everyone knows that Facebook friends is real friends. Not a chance you'll wind up on a watch list or anything...
- Are you sitting down? Yes? If not, do it. Right now. I'm waiting. Okay, I have to tell you something. You ready? Okay. Phew. Okay. THERE ARE MALE LIBRARIANS. I'm so glad I have that off my chest. Don't we all feel better now? Sorry I shouted. Some Guybrarians got together and, well, gave a gift to the world. As they say:
We know what people think: Dewey, glasses, shushing, books, hairbuns, Party Girl and card catalogs. Yes, we know what people think. We know that the American, library profession is approximately 80% White and 72% female; and we know that tens of thousands of librarians are expected to reach age 65 in the next 5 years. We also know that this is not us.Logically, the solution that follows was for them to release a calendar. Logically, I was always going to be behind this decision. Well played, Guybrarians. I noticed a little headline on EW when reading Fiddy's book exerpt earlier, but figured it was probably a good idea to wait until home. It was the logical choice, you see. Especially because...hot snap, Mister January! I hope that is not a library book! Someone is totally getting this for Christmas.
