Apparently the song, Summertime, was not written by a Children's Librarian. This is high season. Everyone wants audio books to travel with, they want to sign up their children for Summer Reading Club (Monday, you can sign them up Monday!) and we are interviewing volunteers to help us hand out prizes to kids.
So why have I changed my profile shoes? If you look closely, the shoes are covered in paint. They are truly work shoes. They are propped up against a copy of The Pied Piper of Hamlin. When I made up my "portfolio" in graduate school, one of the lines I used was something like "I'll be the pied piper to your pequeño patrons." (Highlighting my Spanish language skills while referring to a well-known German folk poem.)
Pied is a favorite word of mine. Pied piper, Pied Beauty...it means patchy in color, according to my American Heritage dic•tion•ary.
I started "crafting" this post almost 2 hours ago. In between, I talked to my friend Emily, I watched part of About a Boy (but the tape is in pretty bad shape) and an episode of Sex and the City. I'm in Season Three now. It's time for bed!
So this is one of the shorter posts, where you have to connect the dots. Go to it! I guess I'd better find a picture of a plant. I wonder if it has to be living?
