Bunheads and overeager undergraduates...

Last night, Mike had some friends over to watch old installments of Mystery Science Theater. These are his colleagues at one of the Catholic colleges that he adjuncts at, so I had a living room full of philosophers. And I hope this doesn't sound sexist, but let me tell you: Men are LOUD. :) In a group, they talk loud, they laugh loud. It's like they're all suddenly hard of hearing. It was all I could do not to interrupt the proceedings to let them know that anybody who woke the baby up was responsible for rocking her back to sleep. Happily, she slept through everything and the men had a great time.

I, on the other hand, retired to our bedroom to knit and watch Bunheads (ABC Family) on demand. Does anybody else watch this show? It's my new on demand obsession. It's by the creator of Gilmore Girls, which was a favorite of both me and Mike. And the characters are dancers, so voila! Instant Tiffany attraction. We've watched 3 episodes so far, and I really like it. Another episode is in the works for tonight. When I first heard the title, I thought the person telling me about it was joking, but no, it's a real show. :) In the absence of Sister Wives, I have to take what I can get.

Anyway, the semester has started here, and the campus is bustling. I always like working on the reference desk at this time of the fall because lots of people need my help and they're always very grateful when I help them kindly. I feel very needed.

*puts on Super Librarian cape*

Although, I helped a male undergraduate earlier that I caught trying to look down my blouse when I leaned over the keyboard. Should I be flattered that he still cared to look? Does he think that I'm even within a 10 year age radius of him? *feels cuter and younger-looking by the moment* Eh, I doubt it. I think it's just an instinct, lol.

  1. It does feel good to be helping a lot of people in the library, doesn't it? I answered over 20 questions on Saturday and felt like a Reference Superstar.

    And the blouse thing happened to me last year, only my students are middle schoolers, so. . . curiosity, I guess. And instinct, like you said.
