“I’m empty and achy and I don’t know why.” So let’s talk about the things that make me happy and maybe I’ll stop acting like a total grumperella.
♥ One of my new favorite hashtags: #thankateacher, part of Thank a Teacher Thursdays from MAT@USC (Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Southern California). They were super sweet enough to have a Library Edition of Thank a Teacher Thursdays. My boo Rita and I were featured along with many other rad librarians. What an honor! Isn’t it nice when nice people do nice things? It makes me feel nice.
♥ Speaking of boos, my main man-boo, Tim, taught a kick-ass zine-making class at my library! Best boyfriend ever! Here are two of my favorite pics:
♥ This kind of reflects the excessive amount of holds I placed this week (mostly Stonewall Book Award books and magic realism):
♥ I got my first Birchbox in the mail today! What’s a Birchbox? What? Don’t you read indie fashion blogs? Obsessively? Like me? For 10 bucks you get 5 deluxe beauty samples. Need an invite? Click here. Here’s what I got:
This Orofluido stuff is the BOMB. It makes my hair smell amazing, doesn’t turn my bleached hair a freaky yellow color, and now it almost looks healthy.
♥ I have the best kids at my library. Bad Sandra made me a necklace:
Good Sandra made me uh-MAZE-ing earrings, which I will take pictures of when I stop looking like death warmed over.
♥ Urban Librarian’s Unite’s recap of our trip to Albany. We did some guerilla reference, dressed as super heroes, and kicked general butt! There’s also a link for NY-ers to click to contact your state legislators to let them know you approve of the current deal to increase State Aid to libraries.
♥ Fab.com currently has so much awesome stuff for librarians and the dorks who love them. This stuff only hangs around the site for a day or two, so get on it now:
Cheer up, buckaroos! The weekend is nearly here. Kisses from library-land! I brushed my teeth and everything.
