Look Who Posted!!

What is going on with this Renee girl? Geez, it's like, she finally has something to talk about, and then she goes M.I.A. I give up. I'm reading NieNie.

...is what you would say, if you weren't awesome.

Thanks for your patience, people. I have been wanting to write something for a while, but I couldn't think of a funny way to talk about how my kids hate my guts and my guts hate my life (it's an indigestion thing, and if I got into it, I'm guaranteed to lose at least six readers.) Needless to say, I am stressed out bigtime, in a way that makes me understand why the word "stressed" is used to describe stress. I feel like my force per unit area is beyond capacity, yo.

Harrison is being evaluated for speech delay on Monday. I think they'll say he's doing just fine, but I felt like not getting him tested could be irresponsible. Six-Eight words (varying levels of understandability) and approaching age 2 1/2. And he's losing language he once had. I know, I know, you have a nephew, grandson, boy-who-lived-in-your-apartment-complex, who didn't say a word until he was 3, and now he's a lawyer or Ryan Seacrest. I just need the test.

I have been interviewing librarians about their jobs. When you ask me why I want to be a librarian, it becomes very clear to me that you don't know many librarians. They are easily the coolest people on the planet. They are the David Lee Roth to my teenage-boy-in-the-80's-who-thinks-the-national-anthem-should-include-more-stuff-about-spandex-and-boobs. In other words, "You just don't get it." It has been seriously a THRILL talking about the stuff Librarians talk about. I want this career, I want this career, I want this career. P.S. the next person who tells me "Who needs a librarian in the digital age/when I have Google*/in such a bad economy?" is going to get a real answer, and it's going to be full of stuff that will probably put you to sleep or make you want me to shut up, and I won't even be sorry, because You Guys Need To Stop Saying Stuff Like This To Me. I don't ask you why you still want to be a Mathematician when there are perfectly good calculators, or a Doctor when I could just use Web M.D., or a Butcher when so many people are becoming Pescatarians. Just let me have my dream.

I'm doing a lot more cane training, and I think it's helping me lose weight. I'm thinking of creating a workout program based on it. "You Cane Do It!: 30 Days to a Slimmer Shape, A Grossly Huge Forearm, and Awesome Seats On The Bus"

My dad was a librarian for years at a university. I always thought it sounded like an awesome profession! Good luck with everything and hope you have a 'relaxing' weekend!

OMG, you cane do it. Renee, you can be my library bitch any time. I don't even know what that means, but it came out and I'm not looking back.

All the librarians I know are totally awesome. You would be awesome too. I would come to your library. You night get tired of seeing us though - we're there a lot.

This post is EPOCH. Seriously. I think I have a crush on you.

You need to come to Tucson and meet one of the librarians at our local library. He colors his hair about once a month, and usually it coincides with some holiday. Pink for Valentine's, green for St. Patrick's Day, red, white and blue for the 4th of July. I am dying to sit down with this guy to see what he's all about. All I really know is he has awesome hair and is really nice. I think being a librarian would be super fun.

I couldn't come to your library. I am a naturally noisy person. Even if I tried to be quiet I would knock a chair over or step on a mouse. (It just came out, sorry.)

(at the expense of sounding completely geeky) Can't help but observe that pressure is also defined as force per unit area.

Full marks for persistence and creativity w.r.t. your blogs.

I just think it's funny that Luann said she's "dying" to sit down with the library who dyes his hair.
