Excuses & Treachery

First of all, I did NOT receive 2:00 am Daylight Savings Time Visits from ANYONE on my staff. I am now taking applications for new AABs. If you're interested, just mail me a resume and several bags of Temptations.

Speaking of Mail, I'm finding that more and more people are using Library business as an excuse to contact, praise, and discuss me.

Exhibit #1: This is a Thank-you card from a person who visited the Library to do some Genealogy research.

Inside was a note to AB Karen and words, words, words and then:

Regards to Tober. Yes, this person was happy with our Genealogy help, but I think it was really just an excuse to send her regards to Me!

Exhibit #2:

Today we got a promotional card about an Indiana author's new book, and a personal note was included from a librarian!

Not really an Exhibit, but #3:

I have intercepted a disturbing email conversation between my Assistant Traitor Boss and another Library Director (you know who you are). Apparently there is some confusion about who writes my blog posts. Hrmph. Treachery! ATB Karen says that she and AAB Christine write my blog posts! Hrmph. I don't think so.

I have 85 Followers. They couldn't get 85 Followers if they were dragging 85-lb. bags of Catnip-crusted Salmon behind them.

I write my own stuff.

And I'm watching for more treachery.

They're jealous of your talent. Keep standing up for yourself. :)

Tober, that staff of yours is out of control! I hope you get some good applicants - you need some fresh blood there. Maybe some fresh catnip too.

People say I don't write my blog, either, but anyone who has even the sense of a slobberdog could tell that you and I write our own material. We felines are just naturally gifted writers; my people colleagues, on the other hand, simply sit around, stare into space, scratch their heads, guzzle gallons of some nasty-smelling, dark, tepid liquid, and then, maybe, just maybe, they can scratch a couple of consecutive words together onto those recycled paper slips we keep by the OPACs.

You're up to 86 followers, Tober. Your star appeal really reels them in!

Good grief! The treachery never ends for you does it! At least you have some adoring fans sending you notes!

Happy St. Cattys Day!

Oh my, Tober. I am glad you are on the case!
