Miss Information's catalogue of birthday annoyances

Yesterday was Miss Information's birthday. Here is a list of what went wrong.

1. She had to get up. Early.
2. On the way to school, the niggling hamstring problem she's been having suddenly got a whole lot worse, turning into a "you go on without me....cough, cough....I'll only slow you down....cough, cough...." kind of situation.
3. She got 9/10 on an assignment, which didn't seem bad until the professor mentioned that anyone who didn't get 10/10 had missed the entire point.
4. Her plans to spend the night eating cake while watching an entire season of Doctor Who was ruined by the damn library DVDs which for some reason included 3 copies of disc 3 but no disc 2 or disc 4.
5. The Starbucks people were surly...and did not give her a free coffee this year. Bastards.
6. On the way home from coffee, she somehow managed to slam her finger in the car door. It really, really hurt. On the positive side, it is a very nice shade of purple.
7. There was nothing on television but the president.
8. She somehow missed an episode of 24 and now has no idea what's going on.
9. In the middle of the night, the cat puked on the bed--this technically was no longer her birthday as it was after midnight but still...very annoying

Happy Belated, Miss Information. Here's to another year of entertaining stories of life in the library and life at library school!

I hope that Miss Information will be able to celebrate this weekend, albeit belatedly. I have slammed my finger in the car door more than once and it's not fun. Go wild this weekend and make up for lost time!

Instead of the state of the union address, just picture the Prez saying "Happy birthday, baby! Here's a billion dollars. Go restart the economy." Giving money to librarians instead of to bankers is a better way to create jobs and get those dollars back in circulation. Happy belated birthday and best wishes for the coming year!

Oooh, so funny! I forget to read for a little while, and then I come back and read a whole bunch together. You are brilliant! I loved the switcheroo you did with the scruffy patron (possible artist/serial killer) and the description of your job, stamping and shushing duties! So, funny. But come on! Surely you don't still have to stamp and in my library, we are taunted if we shush! I wonder if every other reader of your blog tries to guess all the time where you are and what kind of library you work in?

Sometimes in the middle of the night I like to go puke in the cat's bed, just to even things up.

I'm somewhat disturbed by the fact that you appear to be an exact replica of me, only much more funny. I feel obsolete.
