- This one is for Erica, and her forbidden Vin love. I haven't laughed so hard all week. What's your favorite?
- Rick gathers his additions to IM lingo...for Monty Python fans. ;-)
- This is an absolutely fascinating survey on the BBC's page...your job is to spot the fake smile. I got 18/20 right, which makes me feel pretty good. I've always thought that a key part of reference is not only hearing what they ask, but how they ask, their body language and intonation in order to find what they REALLY need.
- And the winner of the best link emailed to me this week, courtesy of my fellow-NIN-worshipper, Jen. The link is from the Christianity Today website, and features this question:
I have a friend who listens to Nine Inch Nails, and I really don't think he should. Are there any Christian groups that sound like NIN?
I appreciate your concern for your friend. And you're right. Nine Inch Nails is a band to avoid. Trent Reznor, NIN's chief songwriter and frontman, spews out lyrics of hopeless rage, generously sprinkled with profanity and sexual vulgarities.
theloudlibrarian: Yeah. That's WHY WE LOVE IT!
jen: sprinkled with profanity and sexual vulgarities - it's the icing on the beef cake
jen: There's something magical about whipping into the parking garage at 8:20am blaring "your god is dead" out the windows, well the three that open
theloudlibrarian: Lately, I've been blaring in listening to Wish - it gets me pumped for the day to hear Trent scream about no souls and big f*%&ing holes. ;-)
I may be going to hell, but at least I'll be among friends. ;-)
(Sorry for the profanity, Mum)
