Christmas Memories

librarianpirate:

When I was in preschool, I was cast as Mary in the school nativity.  The plan was for me to hide the baby doll under the manger and at the appropriate time I would pull him out. Being the youngest of four, and a knower of the facts of life, I thought this was ridiculous so I hid the baby doll under my dress and at the appropriate time I gave birth to him.

"I try to conserve my energy." “How do you mean?” “Everybody is always wasting their energy on being against other people. They like to say ‘I’m against this,’ or ‘I’m against that.’ I say a lot of prayers when I wake up in the morning. But one of the prayers I always say is: ‘God, please send me someone that I can help today.’”

What a lovely sentiment!

A patron just said to me: I told my son that we should call you all the time and you don’t mind because you are being replaced by technology and you like getting questions.  image

Honeymoon -

Nov 23

Start a hardcore tradition this Christmas. Everyone shows up naked. You can only wear things that you have received as a present.

It will be the only time that men hope for socks.
