Christmas in my family

LIT: Okay, I'm having trouble figuring out what to get him for Christmas. I didn't know what to get him when she was a she. And now that she's a he, I have no idea. I hate buying gifts for guys.

LIT's Aunt: Well, I just went shopping with him and he bought three dicks. What do you get the man with three dicks?

I [Heart] Library School

How you know you've made the right move in starting library school:

a) you think it's hilarious when the person giving a presentation about Charles Cutter (famed author of "Rules for a Printed Dictionary Catalog") says that Cutter had a feud with Melvil Dewey, making them "kind of the Professor Xavier and Magneto of library science, but without the battle royale at the end."

b) you actually moved a book from one section to another in the Hudson Booksellers in O'Hare airport because Tamora Pierce books belong in young adult fiction or sci fi/fantasy, not adult general fiction.
