I don't have a great bit of ramble for here today. So I'll just mention that with the latest scam spam I got, the author writes
I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new partner from Paraguay. Everythng was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the ladyaccountant who works with the federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) and she rendered a tremendous help to us.I just want to say that "ladyaccountant" makes it sound kind of hot, kind of that whole "sexy librarian" vibe.
Sexy Librarian Rant of the Moment
So, instead of hanging out by the circulation desk waiting for the book mistress of your dreams to materialize, perhaps your time would be better spent focusing on the oft-ignored library staff: the shelvers. We are young, we are literate, some of us actually work here because we like books. We are the ones that know the titles that the library carries, that deal intimately with the volumes themselves, sorting them, loading them, flipping through their pages and shelving them in their sacred locations. We wear the writer's glasses and discuss John Locke and Douglas Adams. We are the sexy shelvers.
--The triumphant conclusion of Debunking the Myth of the Sexy Librarian and Others... the other good word I'd put in for the shelvers is that they are people who don't mind risking carpal tunnel for a good cause.
