baby-talk is just an unintelligible string of cuss words.
But among the jackals, the panthers, the bitch hounds, The apes, the scorpions, the vultures, the serpents, The yelping, howling, growling, crawling monsters, In the filthy menagerie of our vices, There is one more ugly, more wicked, more filthy! Although he makes neither great gestures nor great cries, He would willingly make of the earth a shambles And, in a yawn, swallow the world; He is Ennui! — His eye watery as though with tears, He dreams of scaffolds as he smokes his hookah pipe. You know him reader, that refined monster, — Hypocritish reader, — my fellow, — my brother!

Bought a brand new book, read it in a few hours, and then still in brand new shape, I stuck it in an envelope and dropped it off at the library so they could add it to their stacks. Inside the envelope was an anonymous note, declaring my intention for them to add it to their collection and my reasons for doing so. It was in fine condition, brand new, perfect spine, beautiful corners, no smudges or fingerprints. Library has volumes 1-6 of this series, which I borrowed and enjoyed immensely. So on my own I purchased, read, and then donated volume 7 to them, figuring they'd be pleased as punch to have it for free -- having volumes 1 through 6, surely they were planning on acquiring this one anyway -- and that it would be processed and shelved in a matter of days. Four weeks later, it's still not in their catalog, not even in a "currently processing/on the way" status. I bet they just threw it in the trash or sent it to the Salvation Army. Those clueless fucks! Random act of kindness for the season wasted.

i work in a library and it sometimes takes them 3-4 months to process books, if that makes you feel any better

i'm wondering if you gave them vol. 7 of the dark tower series though, they might have thrown it away out of spite
shit sucked

I worked in a library before, too. Maybe we just sucked and didn't have anything important to do but process the slow trickle of books we were able to acquire, but it seemed like the turnaround time for them was pretty quick. I guess I'll wait a month or two and check again. By then they'll probably forget that they ever got it and just order another one.

i guess i do work in a library that circulates 4.3 million books, but they also have a huge staff to compensate. all i know is that whenever i go into the acquisitions department on my courier run, there is a cart labeled "gifts" with a bunch of stuff on it, from dvds to newer novels to veterinary journals that gets cleared off and processed maybe once a month. i think it's one of the lowest priorities for them, right up there with e-reserves. you probably should have just gone in there and handed it to them in person and then gone in and checked up on it every 2-3 days like an 80 year old man until it got processed.

I used to work at a public library. Donations rarely made it into the collection--they usually got put with all the other thousands of well-meaning donations for the next book sale

There will never be a time when I am not outraged at the amount of money the government steals from me every pay period.

If they can live without Undo's book, they can certainly do without my withholding.

I am considering changing my dependents to 2 when I get overtime, then changing it back to 0. The cut the Feds take is absolutely outrageous. Who told these people they were entitled to the sweat of my brow? Goddamnit, I did not vote that way. I am really pissed about the economic situation in this country.

musically inclined hedge fund industry professionals to play at the fund-raiser.
To date, bands from at least seven firms - Moore Capital Management LLC;
Rohatyn Group; Lazard Asset Management; Paloma Partners LLC, Greenwich, Conn.;

Just got the good news. My uncle, who had a double lung transplant in April, was doing great, then not doing great, has turned a corner. He's going to be fine. Should be discharged (again) by the end of the week. Such a sense of relief.
