Plucky, Indispensible Librarian with Floaty Hair

2 Sep

I had my meeting yesterday and know only a little more than I did before it. Basically we’re going to figure this process out as we go along. I have a job for the rest of this school year, but after that? I could get laid off at any time. Same as before. So there’s that.

I wore all black in protest yesterday–less to accomplish anything and more just to express my feelings about the situation. Staff members on campus have organized different days where we’ve all worn black to protest the cuts to education and I felt that even though I’d be protesting alone at least I’d be able to express myself.

In awesome news, my excellent Twitter buddy Nic Piper sketched a quick comic based on my situation and a conversation we had in the comments wherein he called me “a plucky, indispensible librarian with floaty hair.” I thought that was basically the raddest thing ever said about me and told him that I’d want that carved on my tombstone. You can enjoy the full-sized comic here.

Thanks again, Nic. This made my day.

      Thanks Rob. It was very late…early in the morning. I may tart it up a bit if I suffer more insomnia!
