Definitely A Huzzah
Just got an email from San Jose State informing me that I have been accepted into the MLIS program for Fall 2008.
One of my favorite movie lines comes from an admittedly not so great (but rather fun and swashbuckling for all that) movie, The Mummy. Rachel Weisz' character is a stereotypical bluestocking librarian but ends up on this adventure with the pseudo-Indiana Jones character played by Brendan Fraser searching for, you know, mummies and the like. Anyway, at one point they are sitting around a campfire drinking copiously and the heretofore innocent young librarian defends her career choice by simply wobbling to her feet and slurring with great aplomb:
"Look, I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am....I...am a librarian!"
True, but we can probably look those other jobs up for you.

I have a shamefaced love for The Mummy, too...
And I know many cool librarians!

Oh the adolescent hormone fueled fantasies coming to life! I sleep with the hot librarian!
Huge Congrats my love!
