Today is more about nostalgia than anything truly library-related. I'm just warning you now.

The Ontario Archives have a neat exhibit on childhood toys between the late 1800s and the 1970s. I looked through the 1970s toys and recognized several of them, although I definitely do not remember the psychedelic drum kit.

More 1970s remembrances: Sesame Street has approximately a zillion videos online! I searched for Grover and got over 1,000 hits. Whee!

For the sci-fi fans among us: 30 years of Star Wars holiday cards. (Thanks, Nicole!) I think the Jawa one is my favorite, although the Chewbacca one is a close second (and the most recent one with the stormtroopers is good, too).

The winners of the annual Wacky Warning Label Contest have been announced!

Wordspy searches out new words as they're coined and/or used in publications. Interesting stuff.

Tomorrow: links from others!
