I decided to do my Random Tuesday thoughts today about librarians. So while the thoughts are random the post has a theme. Mmmmm....does that make it no longer random? So sue me. It's my blog I'll do what I want.
- I have the coolest job in the world. Back in July of 2007 the New York Times wrote an article about librarians entitled; "A Hipper Crowd of Shushers." Not to be outdone the librarians at NPR recently decided to show that librarians are not conservative dressers who wear sensible shoes and ill-fitting clothes from a generation ago, and make unfortunate decisions about hair. Check out their new slide show. I think even Stilleto Mom can appreciate the file drawer full of shoes.
- One of the commenters for the NPR article flatters librarians then asks a reference question. How cool is that? Do you think he's got a fetish - women's shoes and librarians?
"love smart librarians in high heels! Can you please tell me how many women's shoes are manufactured in a year in the US? Also, how many shoes on average does an American woman owns? Thank you!"

When I got my tattoo a couple of years ago the tattoo artist was very excited to be tattooing a librarian. It seems I was his first. FYI, I was very gentle with him but afterward he was a whole new man! HeeHee!
Yep, this is my tat. As alums (JR & I) from Washington State University it gives a whole new meaning to; "Go Cougs" at our house.
- On a totally unrelated topic (oh wait, that makes it random. Duh) while digging through our cork collection we found; 1.) a pair of glasses; 2.) a remote to some kind of electronic equipment; 3.) a wine stopper; 4.) some beads; 5.) some child named Timmy. Do you think we should do something with all of these corks or continue to collect? And, does anyone know Timmy's parents cuz damn, I don't need another boy in this house!
- It is Casey's from Half as Good as You birthday today. If you can get a chance head over there to wish her a happy one.
