"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

"Celebrated Passages are Quoted"

Heidi's favorite quotes

"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

Sorting picture books to determine good ones for toddler storytimes and preschool story times


thinking of songs and rhymes to add to the toddler storytimes and preschool storytimes


watching--and, yes, singing along with gusto--Pete's Dragon (the full version, which I've never seen before).

What exactly does that say about me?

Nothing new. I know.

Oh my word! Did anyone else know that Doc Terminus is the amazing HP (and Pushing Daisies) narrator JIM DALE!?!?!?

Huh. Nope. I didn't know. I've been attending a baby music class with E and I wake up in the mornings with the songs stuck in my head. "You roll the ball to me and I roll the ball to you." "I have a little pony. His name is Macaroni..." Oi. :)

Heidi said...

Yes. I'm glad that I'll be able to incorporate all the annoying songs that I love into these. :-)
