Blog Day Afternoon

Yeah–I know I haven’t been posting much lately, but it’s kinda hard when I’m going to bed at 9:00pm every night. That and the fact that I’m making the endless rounds of doctor, physical therapist and chiropractic appointments, it doesn’t leave me much time other than collapsing when I get home. I promise to make amends this weekend; in the meantime, please entertain yourselves by choosing one of the following and writing a response of no less than 500 words:

Tori Amos’ new album is entitled Tales of a Librarian. Tori says it’s because she’s telling stories; I say it’s because she wears the designer equivalent of librarian clothes. Who’s right and who cares?

Michael Gorman is currently one of the candidates for ALA presidency; what are the implications of electing someone who is as enamoured of Hugo Boss as he is with AACR2Rev? And will all ALA members get a 10% discount at Prada if he’s elected? Entries that explain to me why he’s still living in Fresno get a personalized e-greeting from me.

Remember: entries must be received by the end of this week; postmarks do not count. Entries will be judged soley on their incredulity.

Librarian Contest of the Week: ALA is looking for a few brave souls to enter their photo search contest. Remember: no cardigans!

    From the Shameful Confessions department: I asked Michael Gorman to autograph my copy of the AACR2 when I met him at a lecture. He was very gracious about it. I felt like a groupie, all giggly and glowing.

    Though I hear he’s a prima donna (primo don?), ALA could do worse for a prez, IMO. And I’d love the Prada discount!

    I guess I’m starry-eyed too. When I heard he was running, I was like, hells yeah. I love his books and if he can apply those philosophies to ALA leadership, he’s got my vote!! ­čÖé
