“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself (and your website) have altered…”

Yay! Students are back (and they HATE the new website, big surprise!) Noxious library lollypops are entering gaping freshman (freshperson) mouths across campus, and I’m thinking about painting coloured footprint trails on the floor so I don’t have to explain where ID-Card pickup is again for the millionth time. Gotta love it! And gotta love this week’s Liberry treats!!

1) Regular readers will know how much I love sharing disgusting food with you all, and vomit-inducing-yet-strangely desirable is probably my favorite category in the weird-food stakes. This week’s offering? Deep-Fried Oreo Cookies. One. Two.Three. Heart attack!

2) I love international students, they make work fun. Here’s a “Found” poster from another state from some kind international students who ‘found’ what they thought was someone’s cat… (Note: non-Aussie readers, you’re quite excused if you don’t get it. Drop me a line in the comments here, and I’ll send you a wikipedia page which might shed some light. Suffice it to say, that ain’t a cat…)

3) Finally, another puppet-library crossover, this time from Muppets Tonight… a colleague commented she has a professor in her department who’s a lot like this when it comes to the library!

  1. The students… holy smoke! I’ve know idea what that is but I sure as hell know it isn’t a cat… an opossum? A marsupial?

    Love the Muppets, they’re brilliant. I am looking forward to seeing how Thor gets on having his cable hooked up.

    Mmm!

    Cheers

  3. BC, it’s a ringtailed possum – you were close! Try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Ringtail_Possum

    Glad you liked the Muppets clip – I never found Muppets Tonight (the newer incarnation) had the same sort of spirit as the original, but hey, a Muppet’s a Muppet, you could argue…
