Hey, Dr. Jones, no time for love!



Busy erasing stenciled pencil glosses & inchoate in flagrante delicto info, pulling sticky tabs, brushing Dorito-dusted keyboards, unfolding folded corners, dressing wounds, scrubbing blood & vomit stains in preparation for National Library Week & that's only the stuff that can be mentioned in a public forum.

It's not all hair buns n' tweed, jack.

Graves, you swine!

If you just quit eating and boozing at your desk, you wouldn't have to do all this clean up.

Eat at Ray's!

Regards,

Tengrain

I played that song all the way to Myrtle Beach and back.

Lived it, too.

Library Week? I heard that in lieu of surplus cash it has been re designated 'National Library Hour'

Going on the idea started by Jim I figure Amazon and B&N will soon be the beneficiaries of efforts by "bright" conservative boys and girls to privatize libraries. Instead of simply checking out books this new paradigm will let hardworking taxpayers look at the first few pages, read reviews, and have discounts on kindles and other e-readers.

The scenario as envisioned by BB is too horrible to be contemplated. However, do not fear, Randal is on the job and such things will not be allowed to happen.

Randal Graves said...

tengrain, and do what instead, work?

okjimm, we replaced the canon with Tom Clancy.

BB, if you want to read books, get a job and buy your own, hippie.

liberality, if I had as much clout as you'd say, I would indeed take a page from classic Simpsons and turn the pentagon into a mall.

Aw come on, go ahead and tell us about the other kinky stains you have to scrub out. Blood, vomit, and -- AND...

Randal Graves said...

if, think of the children!

tom, think of the children!

Demeur said...

Pentagon into a mall? Heavens no, they wouldn't make as much money. Military industrial complex you know. What are you a yuppie?

Demeur said...

Children hell! They're busy bypassing the porn filters on your computers.

susan said...

You mean you still have some books at your library? Color me amazed.

Randal Graves said...

demeur, I'm sure our best & brightest can find innovative ways to further suck at the unwashed masses' teat.

They have porn on computers?

susan, being an academic repository, I think we're required by law to have at least 27.5% of the collection be actual books.

Yeah but it better get back to hair buns & tweed before The Chancellor arrives... or else!

It may not all hair buns and tweed, but the make up a sizable portion of it, you must agree.
