Hrm, I like it. I know a couple of the pages, I could get them to just quietly skip over it when they read the shelves. If I can scrounge up any memories of how-to-catalog from library school lo these many years ago I could rig up a Dewey number for it. Tee-hee.

I know this makes me a crass and terrible person, but I'd give them a copy of my own gardening book, Reluctant Gardener, I'd love to see it on their shelves forever. But there are complex rules about which books get real estate in a library, so it'll never happen.

We're so pleased, and relieved, it's been a long time coming, since before I moved here 3 years ago. Jim's relieved - he's the FoL treasurer and would have had to return 328 private donations to the donors. God knows what kind of mess it would have been re: tax receipts that had been issued for the past two years.

Next fool who waggles an iPhone in my face and says we don't need no stinkin' libraries, gets it, right in the kisser. Didn't happen to me, but did to a friend. Putz.

"I can't sew." Well no one expects you to tailor a tweed jacket from scratch, we're talking about simple repairs here. Needle, thread, get busy. It's so profoundly not rocket science.

Today is the town council's final-and-forever vote on whether or not we get our new library. Please cross fingers and toes it passes.

Who knew there'd be so much deli drama in the world.

Fuck that noise. Isn't it funny/odd, being the only person for apparently miles around who can sew?
