“All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.”

Hi everyone! Happy Mothers Day (in Australia anyway) to all the mothers out there reading this (even if you mother a small animal rather than a child, as I do. But did Evil Cat get me flowers? Nooooo….) I got my mum art supplies, and let her beat me at Trivial Pursuit, so all-in-all a successful celebration of maternity all-round!

Here are this week’s links (and not bought last-minute by the side of the road at premium prices like most Mothers Day flowers are… or is that an Australian thing too?)

1) How are we in the modern library supposed to know what to DO? Given that library schools are so poor and teach you nothing about running an actual library… thankfully for all our sakes, there’s the internet. Specifically, there’s the Librarian’s Guide to Etiquette blog.  For example, “A polite librarian should always insert a the before proper names of Internet name brands. Demonstrating your familiarity with the Google, the Facebook, or the Twitter, is a good way to establish some internet-cred with the kids.” Duly noted…

2) Some very cool and interesting art and short story material in this year’s Thoughtcrime Experiments anthology, if that’s your sort of thing. I particularly liked “Daisy”…

3) Finally, more iPhone bashing…
