          Yesterday was the last day of school for students, so the custodians must have cleaned out lockers last night.  When I walked into the Library this morning, grimy wayward textbooks and binders were all over the checkout desk, and piled high on my desk chair.  Seriously, most of them were covered in a thin film of sticky dirty grime.  I said, "Fuck THIS, man!" because I really hate dealing with textbooks.  They are not Library property, we don't purchase them or store them, and we're not responsible for them.  So there.
          Anyway, I turned and saw this enticing Toll House chocolate chip cookie box sitting on the table behind the circ desk, with lurid cookie pics all over it, and for a moment thought, "Oh!  A gift for ME?  For making the Library so awesome?"  But no, upon closer inspection it was filled with dirty, greasy old combination padlocks the kids didn't want anymore, or left on their lockers, or something.
          This is what the end of the school year is like, though.  Everyone madly trying to dump a bunch of crap on somebody else before they leave for summer break. 


  1. Maybe next time you could take it to the custodians office. Wrap it up in a big box with a bow on it.

    PS I've been trying to leave comments on other posts, but I kept getting rejected. I think I found an answer to the problem.

  2. Hi Tommy! Guess what? I just tagged you in my latest blog post, so go to my blog for details. You might be getting more traffic to your site. I kinda bragged about you! Just in case, be sure to add links to your publications so people can click on them and order them! Hope to see you soon. Have a great summer!
