Hi, Mom! Today is

National Purple Day!!!

Yes, it's that peculiar day when we applaud the color purple! It's the day when we express our appreciation for people who proudly proclaim their proclivity for purple apparel. It's a day to be impulsive and, perhaps, impetuous, not prudent or pusillanimous! Purchase a pair of purple pants and prance about like a prissy poppinjay! Not pink! Not puce! Not even pumpkin! Proper people prefer purple!

Did you run into any historians who are now Dean of Library in a conspicuous Texas university? Just wondering. . .

Oh Mom, poor Mom, I come back and everyone except me is ignoring you and I'm feeling so glum.

Ya know, Mom, contrary to what my postings were I found Seattle to be a nice city. One that I could actually live in, if I could afford it, which I can't because I give all my money away to the poor like you taught me to. I'd better get going because I have to go to work today so that I have money to give to that poor young widow lady who has to take in lots of boarders every night and who can't even afford any more clothes than a corset or a thin tee shirt.

Blue skies are never seen in Seattle
And the hills're pretty hilly in Seattle
Like a wayward child growing up but pretty mild
Full of overcast and grays
Full of rain that lasts for days
Full of drizzle lasting years in Seattle
In Seattle...
In Seattle....

Beer
(With apologies to Tom Rowe)

Idaho Man grows the barley-o,
Oh the barley
He works in the sun, he works in the snow.
Oh the barley beer
Then he loads it up in a big old truck,
Sends it to Anheuser for lots of bucks.
Oh the barley, oh the barley-0.

        Oh the barley, Ole Anheuser tea.
        You killed my Grampa, killed my Pa.
        And you sure as hell are a killin' me.
        Oh the barley, oh the barley-o.

When they fought the war against the tax on cheer;
They fought it over Anheuser beer.
Old Boise put a tax on it,
All of Idaho nearly took a fit.

In the time of the two-thousand-seven bar;
Beer sitting in the Legion store.
They pumped it in it at minus twelve degrees,
A long cold night in a Idaho freeze.

Then the grease trap combusted 'cause it wasn't clean
Beer barrels done split clean in twain.
Two million gallons spilled that night
People suckin' from the gutters caused a terrible sight.

Grampa, he died a quick good way, sir.
Pa went down in the pool of pilsner.
But I won't go in a pool of blood,
I won't drown in an amber flood;
But still I'll go down to the barley, Oh the barley beer.


Hi Mom. I'm back from Seattle.

"Jezebel does not accept Ahab's God, Yahweh. Rather, she leads Ahab to tolerate Baal. This is why she is vilified by the Deuteronomist, whose goal is to stamp out polytheism. She represents a view of womanhood that is the opposite of the one extolled in characters such as Ruth the Moabite, who is also a foreigner. Ruth surrenders her identity and submerges herself in Israelite ways; she adopts the religious and social norms of the Israelites and is universally praised for her conversion to God. Jezebel steadfastly remains true to her own beliefs."


Therefore, mark ye, and learn: as ye emulate the MOABite, so shall ye be blesséd.

Well, if you have to explain what MOAB is, you simply have them read through it, from the beginning. When they get to the discontinuity, their brains are sure to have died, and so you get out of whatever it was they were wondering about.

If that doesn't work, the confused numbering system will stick them into an endless loop.

There's nothing to worry about, except possibly that you're part of it...

My boss just got back from Seattle at the ALA meeting. I wonder if he ran into Rapaire? Probably just as well I didn't tell them to look for each other. Who knows what might have occurred if news of this thread got out and someone I know here actually started reading the MOAB? Scary thought. . .

And may the world go well with thee!
Faretheewelll, for I must leave thee
Do not let this parting grieve thee,
And remember that the best of friends must part!
I will hang my harp
On the weeping willow tree,
And may the world go well with thee!


There will be a quiz, oh, yes a quiz! (What, a quiz?)
As to lyrics here both hers and his (her or his!)
You will all be asked to recite each line intact!
And may your days go clicky-clack!

Farethewell, and be not grieving
On a choochoo I am leaving
I can here the bold conductor call "Aboard! All Aboard!"

Farewell, as I move down the line (Long line!)
And watch the crossings mark the time (Mark the time!)
I will spend my days rolling down the railroad track,
And may your days go clicky-clack!

Oh, by the way...the Legion hovel had a fire last night, according a phone call I received this morning. They didn't clean the grease trap for a week, and you know how fast THAT would fill up. I'll let you know more when I get home, but I understand that it caused the beer barrels stored in the basement to explode and the result was similar, but not identical, to the Great Boston Molasses Flood.

I heard that story also. I made a note but I can't find it. The day I'll look forward to is his other calculation--the Happiest day of the year. He said that is, if I remember correctly, Friday June 22. Yes. I wondered why that day and have concluded that 1-it is a Friday 2- the kids are out of school so we don't have to tow the school district line 3-it isn't the hottest, most miserable part of summer yet 4-it's not the end of the month yet so I might actually still have a little money left.

Yeah, the guy's calculations were based upon factors like typical weather patterns for the time of year, "holiday cheer" having run its course, Christmas bills coming due, lack of any substantial cheering holidays on the horizon, etc. Personally, I expect January to suck so it doesn't bother me.

Hey, Amos, you might want to look here. And Rap, you might want to link the library here:

Scholarpedia

I sent this to the I Read it in the Newspaper thread even though I actually read it in my email BUT reading this online will be like what so much of us post anyway--stuff we usually read in online newspapers. (Though I often see things in the print version then shift to the computer to find the web version and that's what I post. Getting the clipping to stick and in such a way so you can each read it just doesn't work very well.)

I think so, too. I bet he'd shape up if he knew he was trying to bluff a LIBRARIAN! Do you have any old card catalog cards you can stick in your shirt pocket behind your glasses case and pencil? That ought to help give it away.

What, Mom? He won't know what a card catalog is?

Oh. I suppose a stack of BOOKS won't be enough of a clue either?

Then whack him upside the head with the date due stamp from the circulation desk. They're big enough, that'll get his attention.

He'd be much more creative if the Internet connection in his hotel, for which he lugged a laptop along, worked. Instead he's only creative in his swearing at a support guy who suggested that he somehow changed the machine address of his wireless card.

Otherwise, how is everyone? I probably won't be back until I get home on Wednesday evening.

By the way, just because somebody has to insert something "educational" into this thread from time to time, the term "bug" is often misused to mean any type of insect. "True bugs" are insects which have a triangular-shaped plate on their backs, as does the stinkbug JennyO posted a pic of earlier (Here it is again.), or these assassin bugs. A ladybug doesn't have that traingular plate, so it's not really a bug. It's a beetle.
