An Open Letter

To All My Friends and Colleagues:

I love you guys. You know I do. We’ve laughed. We’ve cried. We’ve even toyed with the idea of high-fivin’ each other whenever we see the little Christmas light bulb light up over a patron’s head after we’ve explained for the umpteenth time Allure does not count as a credible academic resource (though unbeatable when recommending a fabby concealer).

But please, for the love of all things bibliographic, do not send me another freakin’ link to Ms. Dewey.

Yes, I’m aware she bears a unsettling resemblance to me, but there’s absolutely no way I could be as annoying, unless it involves a free seafood buffet and cilantro gimlets on my birthday.

So please, think twice before forwarding the link. My proclivity for snarky comments thanks you.
