Saved by a librarian!

Thank you to Jenny Benevento, the resourceful librarian who saved me a few seconds ago as I desparately searched for a knife to cut moleskin for my poor beat up feet after a run-in with some sandals last night. It was a pretty weird coincidence, since I was literally in the process of sending Jenny an email about meeting up tonight.

Or maybe it wasn’t a coincidence. I supect the number of librarians carrying useful tools in their bags is significantly higher than you know, normal folks.

  1. On an ordinary day, in my purse (which had to be bought large enough for an average mass-market and/or trade paperback), I have:
    – a pocketknife
    – 2 nail files
    – Shout! Wipes
    – three or more writing utensils of various persuasions
    – makeup
    – gum/mints
    – a lighter
    – a pencil sharpener
    – a bottle of assorted OTC’s: aspirin, aleve, gas-x, cold pills
    – a dart tool
    – a small bat (baseball, not chiroptera)
    – CDs (blanks and pre-recorded)
    – confetti
    – earrings
    – a LightWedge Mini

  2. Blasted airports. They need to lighten up. I mean, security is one thing, but the stuff they ar banning….!

    I don’t know what I’d do without my Gerber Multi-tool.

  3. Wow I really feel like I have done my podiatrist parents proud getting called up in public for this! :)

    I will proudly wear my librarian button to SxSW today! :)
