Librarians and flowers

I bought useful office supplies, including lots of paper clips. I bought pretty flowers as a housewarming gift for friends who are housewarming tonight. I have my receipt all ready to claim my copy of HPatOftP. In addition to being acquisitive, I have fended off noisy librarians, admired graduating hordes, enjoyed the loveliness of the day, and had lunch with ultrascichick, who was in town for 24 hours, and is now gone again. It was good to catch up with her, since I hadn't seen her in months and months.

The noisy librarians were part of the ALA conference currently in town. They couldn't help that the head librarian who was giving them a tour was leading them through quiet study spaces and loudly pronouncing interesting facts about those spaces. I learned a lot about the study space I was using, but every time they came through (once an hour), I couldn't focus on what I was doing at all. Very distracting librarians, they were. But I hope they liked the library!

I had a nice little talk with an ALA attendee yesterday at Fisher, after he admired my HP backback, so we both stopped to chat. I explained about its origin and that no, it wasn't pirated merchandise. He started to explain why the MLA conference is so boring and was sidetracked onto major theoreticians whose names are all I know. It was good.

Crazy Librarians
My aunt is in town for just that same conference! Lots of people wandering around with the same Barnes & Noble shoulder bags.
