Miss Information is still waiting, you bastards.Miss Information has not yet heard from the good people at library school. This has made her frustrated, cranky, emotional and bitter. It is just so much like dating. They seemed to like her. She thought they had a real connection but they’ve had her number for 2 months now. Why aren’t they calling?
Ok. So Miss Information wasn’t absolutely perfect for them; they’re not such hot stuff themselves. Maybe they shouldn’t be so damn picky, especially with all those happening new online library schools out there. Sometimes you have to settle. Miss Information would be a great library school student. She has an endless capacity for bullshit. She promises she would listen attentively to all their boring stories. She would fake an interest in their hobbies—the history of records management, for example. Miss Information could pretend to be fascinated by that for a semester. No one would ever know the truth.
Miss Information just knows it’s because the admissions committee met an application they liked better—a cuter application, an application with nicer legs. Dammit. Why didn’t Miss Information use Times New Roman instead of Ariel? What the hell was she thinking?
Lately Miss Information has been terrified that the committee is just stringing her along, waiting for her to get bored and run off with a different graduate school or die or something and they aren’t actually going to tell her she’s been rejected.
They are like the worst boyfriend ever.
