"No! That's a Barbershop Pole!" and other stories.

Ok, since I fell off the face of the earth there for awhile, it is entirely possible that every one of you has already seen this. On the off chance a couple of you haven't... Remember Where's Waldo?

hehe! Thanks Gwendolyn!

On a personal note, I've been at the new job for almost a month now. I love it. It is exactly what I always wanted. It's all consuming, and I have to force myself not to stay up at night and work, but I'm completely engaged with what I'm doing. There's always a little niggling fear that I'm about to fall flat on my face and screw something up in a sensational manner, but so far I've managed not to do that. I'm sure eventually I'll drop one of the balls I'm juggling (this possibility is increased given the fact that I don't know how to juggle), but hopefully it won't be one of the flaming ones. Until then, I love being a teen librarian. Love, love, love. And I'm happy to be back in the blogging world. We're getting things set for the next round of author interviews, and I'm pretty darn excited about them.

You Live!

Okay, it wasn't like I was going to call out the marines or anything to go find you but I was starting to wonder just how far off the face of the earth you had fallen... :)

Happy to hear you love the job - can't wait to see you so you can gush about it in person.

Oh my that is funny. Sara Holmes pointed it out to us today, and I'm going to link to it, but I'll reference your post, too. I had never seen that. Clever stuff.

You will wow them at your job. How can you not, 'cause you're you? But, in the meantime, good luck juggling those flaming balls. Sounds like a new disorder, but you know what I mean.

"No, you idiot! That's a giant candy cane!"

I can't even tell you how happy this made me.

Hey Jackie,
It sounds like you are loving your job. I am so glad and know that you will be great at it. I miss your recommendations for teen reads for me but I am muddling on my own. I loved the Where's Waldo vid....very clever and well done!
