Why YOU should become a librarian – circa 1956!

“Are they your friends? Do you have a real love for books and learning?”

“Do you like people? Do you like all types of people?”

I especially enjoy the part about “professional men” and how administrators are referred to as “he,” while the stereotypical frumpy spinster checks out books to happy-go-lucky Jack and Jane on their way home from the ice cream parlor.

Oh, and if you were wondering, librarians’ salaries are “comparable to those of similar professions.”  I wonder what those “similar professions” are?  And how much those mystery people make?

Nutty about Conshy

So I have this bad habit of eating entire bags of gummy worms in one sitting. It’s pretty gross, actually. But I just enjoy quality candy, especially that of the gummy variety – sweet, sour, sweet/sour, juicy, crunchy, I could go on… And I thought that the candy aisle in the new mega Giants was my own Southeastern PA Mecca to behold. But apparently an unholy candy store exists that boggles the minds of everyone who dares to enter its gates – and it’s located in the most unlikely place – Conshohocken. Anyone know what I’m talking about? I shall post the follow up once I return from its sacred palatial gardens. It’ll also make me come back to this blog and post something more often than once every six months.


More to come, I promise…
