Patron: Do you have the movie "The Women's?"
Librarian: The Women's? W-O-M-E-N-apostrophe-S?

Amazing Names Thursday

Oh, hey, no one told me that Lady Chablis adopted. I met her new daughter, Shardonay, yesterday.

Gee, thanks.

5-year-old, upon walking in the door: Aaaawwww, Mom! Not this library! I wanted to go to the really nice one.

Amazing Names Thursday

I seriously considered not posting this one, because who the hell would believe any ass-hole on crack would name a kid Aquanetta. One co-worker, who knows about this blog, told me I should, because she and her husband went to school with an Aquanette, so it's really not that uncommon.

So what is your complaint?

Patron: I am calling to complain about an employee.
Librarian: Ok
Patron: This particular employee does not call my friend by his proper title, which  'Doctor"
Librarian: Does this particular patron know that this particular patron is a doctor?
Patron: No.

Amazing Names Thursday

Did any of you in Iowa see that giant fire ball meteor last night? I wish I had. All I saw last night was a little girl named Star Comet. First name Star, middle name Comet. Here's the kicker - her last name went right along with the theme Mom and Dad were going for.

tell her like it is, kid

Mom: C'mon, we're running late. Let's kick it into high gear.
4 year old: Mom, I am tired of kicking it into high gear!

A little about me without revealing too much

I have two kitties. One is named after the Mister's favorite mathematician and mine is named after an infamous politician.

We live in the attic of a 118 year old house.

I love all things vintage, and feel really guilty when I shop at Target. Damn Target for having REALLY CUTE STUFF.

My favorite food is guacamole. My favorite guacamole is the kind I make myself. If I am too impatient to let avocados ripen on their own, I buy it from Chipotle, which comes in at a distant second. Who wants my recipe?

I have been known to eat cheesecake for breakfast. But only once. And by once, I mean, like, 4 times in the past month.

I would be a vegan if cheese were not so good.

I would be a vegetarian if bacon were not so good.

I would really healthy if bacon and cheese were not so good. Also, if I did not eat cheesecake for breakfast so often.

On our first date, the Mister and I got our napes pierced. It was love.

I got my first pedicure last month. I am hooked and I am not looking back.

I wish Sarah Vowell narrated my life. Her stories on NPR crack me up because her delivery and tone is so sarcastic. And generally awesome.

I wear SPF 70 sunscreen on my face, arms, and legs every day. I am 10% paranoid about cancer and 90% paranoid about wrinkles. Finding foundation powder to match my pale force is really difficult.

One book I have always meant to read is Moby Dick. I do not know why I never have. It is my Mom's fave.
