ALA2013 so far:

  • thank you to all the librarians with Doctor Who gear. It made it much easier for me to make friends.
  • also there was cat stuff everywhere. It was beautiful.
  • I have NEVER seen SO many people so excited about their careers. 
  • not only that, they were all excited to talk to me. Like, they all wanted to know where I was in my LIS pursuits, and how they remember that time, and then they’d talk about how cool THEIR job was.
  • I mean, I met a future prison librarian, lots of media specialists, information architects, and even heard tell of a CIA librarian who can’t even talk about the details of her job.
  • ALSO there is such a spread of fashion here!! Eclectic, posh, sparkly, pragmatic, nerdy, offbeat, etc etc. I LOVE IT.
  • AND THE EXHIBIT HALL IS A THING OF JOY AND RAPTURE.
  • AND AND the tumblarian meetup is tomorrow!! ahhhh!
