"State or UNC?"
It’s a trick question. If someone asks “State or UNC” the answer is always State, because a Carolina person will most likely a) call UNC “Carolina” and b) not ask you about State in the first place; they’ll ask “Duke or Carolina?” And of course the answer to “Duke or Carolina” is always Carolina, because the Duke person won’t ask...
I need a cobbler. Not the the fruit pie, but a person who cobbles. Are there still cobblers? Where to I go to get some cobbling done?

ryeisenberg: If every straight person honestly answered this question, we’d wipe out homophobia tomorrow. That’s just the thing, though. It’s precisely because they didn’t choose to be straight that many people assume that heterosexuality is the default for everyone (rather than the take-away being that sexuality isn’t a choice), and that someone must have chosen to be...
Can now change my Linkedin headline to my unrelated temp job title or one of those meaningless generalities like “library professional” that everyone knows is code for “I don’t have a real job.” Which would you rather see?
methlabrador: when people say “i dont believe in science” what are you even talking about see also: “i dont believe in alcohol” it’s fine if you don’t want to consume it, but i’m pretty sure it exists

Word of the Day: Mason–Dixon, n.
oupacademic: In its latter cultural/political context, the Mason-Dixon line has shifted South over time due to cultural migration, from the Pennsylvania border to Baltimore, then Washington, eventually crossing the Potomac, and can currently be found about half an hour north of Charlottesville, parallel with the southern border between Delaware and Maryland. It is estimated that by 2020, the...

bluefootedbooby: My favorite part about Old Time/Appalachian/Hillbilly music is that like every single song (with lyrics) is about murder and death. And if it’s not it’s about rambling solitary hobos. Sometimes who are rambling solitary hobos because they murdered someone. Hang down your head, Tom Dooley. Hang down your head and
Tonight is the last episode of Night Library!
Ask me anything about night librarianism, or anything else. Will answer from the graveyard shift.
deweyscloset-deactivated2013050 asked: What's the weirdest item left in your library's Lost & Found?
smalltownbigguy: in the south we don’t say “you’re a dumb fuck” we say “bless your heart” and i think that’s beautiful.
deweyscloset replied to your post: Random stupid question, cause I’m good at that. I’m prbly sticking my foot in my mouth again but how tall are you? I’ve noticed you mention before that you have small hands and feet (always paired with a hilarious raccoon gif visual) so I’m left with a really weird picture in my head. I’m going to stop talking now. LMAO…I love the gif. Perfect. This is scarily...

I’ll tell you what the 21st goddamn century thinks of thirteenth goddamn century feudalism: Still more progressive than the Republican goddamn party.
mothermetroid replied to your post: The night library is open for all your weird asks…. Same, except I’m completely dreading the sunlight and peppy day humans. HISSSSSSS Same. But exactly the opposite of what you said.
fggtlibrarian: 21stgoddamncentury: Deciding to become a librarian because you like books is like going to med school because you like having a body. Most of us do, and it’s a perfectly reasonable preference, ostensibly relevant to the profession, but it’s not remotely the point. This is exactly how I feel. Books and reading are rad, don’t get me wrong, but I’m in it for the research, belief...
The night library is open for all your weird asks. Put anything you want in there. Only two more nights of night library next week, then I’m a daytime human again!
Now it’s the even sadder Hank-doesn’t-understand-Bobby episode about the wizard nerd coven. Resplendent!
I have a portmanteau for dinner (poorly executed half-scrambled omlette = scramlette), and there’s a Bill-centric episode on. C is probably glad she’s not home because she hates portmanteaus and sadsack Bill Dauterive episodes. This is how I live when left to my own devices.
