      Smotch and I watched it last night. 😀 I forgot how funny some parts were until I saw it again. It’s been a while.

      (Also, Rachel Weisz is hawt, yo. And Brendan Frasier is yummay!)

    How can I not like this, after so many awful movie stereotypes about librarians? The worst is probably in It’s a Wonderful Life, when George Bailey sees what life would be like without him. Clarence the Angel won’t tell him what happened to Mary, George has to force it out of him, it’s just too, too horrible. Seems she’s had to become–gasp!–a librarian! You almost get the sense that his old friend Violet is better off in her life of prostitution.

      I thought you’d like that. 😉

      Of Violet and Mary: American media has never been without mixed messages.

      I ran across this Jasper Fforde dialogue, my friend, that I thought might amuse you:

      Q: Do I have to talk to insane people?
      A: You’re a librarian now. I’m afraid it’s mandatory.

      And this, from libraryavengers.org:

      People become librarians because they know too much. Their knowledge extends beyond mere categories. They cannot be confined to disciplines. Librarians are all-knowing and all-seeing. They bring order to chaos. They bring wisdom and culture to the masses. They preserve every aspect of human knowledge. Librarians rule. And they will kick the crap out of anyone who says otherwise.
