Alert! Librarian Gear is closing! Get your cool stuff while you can! (I'm considering the "definition" shirt myself.)

Library happenings around the world: San Francisco gets its first new branch library in forty years, England tries to figure out a way to save their disappearing free libraries, and the Washington Post librarians get some well-deserved recognition. (I used to be a news librarian and miss it terribly.)

The Google Image Search Blog searches for weird words and posts the results, most of which tend to be surreal.

Hey, the 2006 Bulwer-Lytton Awards are out! The winners and dishonorable mentions seem especially good this year. I like the one comparing a tentative stripper to plastic wrap.

Tomorrow: links from others!

I quite fancy the Hag of Bolding, myself. I am quite fond of leeks as well but not of hobbit knuckles.
