Ha! This is so true! Librarians really aren't the cardigan-wearing, hair-in-a-bun, shushing group of people they're stereotyped as. Not to say there aren't those who still fit the stereotype, but the library is full of diverse and interesting people.
I love the quote that JP Porcaro shares by Keith Richards, “When you are growing up there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you.”
I was doing some research at work and came across this blog. I thought she had some good things to share about being a children's author.
I absolutely love this website. She has great advice and expresses a growing concern for this next generation we are raising. She has great thoughts on how to be encouraging, and this one, one of the first posts I read of hers a couple of years ago that made me do a double-take and change my life up a bit. She really opens your eyes to the reality of parenting in this age.
Apparently I'm Jessie Spano on Saved by the Bell. Lol! Who are you?
Ummm...I don't eat most of these things every day (except artificial sweeteners...I know, I know. I need to stop, but coffee's just not as good without creamer) - certainly not whole dairy, margarine, potato chips or soda, but I've been known to consume every one of these things at some point in my life. Sheesh! Something's gonna kill us eventually, right?
So, on that note, let me share a website I recently ran across. Not to say that we'll go completely sugar-free in our house (are you kidding me??) but she does have some interesting recipes that I'd like to try and tips on how to cut down on sugar.
The Avett Brothers will be performing live on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on March 5th!! Can't wait!
And speaking of Jimmy Fallon, I've been catching up on The Tonight Show via Hulu since I can't stay up to watch it live. This girl's in bed by 10:30 most nights, 11 at the latest!
I just love Jimmy Fallon, don't you? He's had so many great moments already!
This one made me laugh :)
As did his interview and skits with JT, the evolution of hip-hop dancing with Will Smith, the Ragtime Gals singing Ignition, the lip sync battle with Paul Rudd, #Hashtag2, Will Ferrell and thank you notes. And U2 as Jimmy's first musical guest? Fantastic!!
