don't make me shush you.

I've been alone at the reference desk all morning.

(even more librarians in pop culture!)

No doubt you are aware of "The Society of Librarians Who Say 'Motherf**ker'".
Are you a member/founder?
(They Google #1 in the unlikely event you've never heard of 'em.

Last week as a research symposiom I was at was winding down, the Orange County (Ca) librarians were checking out the facilities for thier upcoming weekend.
Naturally they were talking and since there were a group of them, it was a little loud.
As I went from one meeting room to another, I couldn't resist "sushing" them.
I got my first library card in Detroit when I was five and still remember the only (pre teen) time I was shushed. I was afraid they wouldn't let me back in or let me have any more books. Never again, until I got much older,was I ever shushed.
However, after 55 years of being (rarely)shushed,I couldn't resist the temptation to turn the tables.
P.S. Is there any chance you will let out the secret of how you women pick out and pass the message on which weekend is The Weekend?

Dennis - come to my library and set a good example, please!

The Weekend, of course, is a secret. (which weekend?)

I always thought Read or Die was an interesting idea.

The trailer is entertaining anyway.

I want to be a patron at that library.

It just occurred what a marvelous overlap you are of glorious established fantasy subsets, not the least of which is librarians-who-say-motherf*cker.
