Texas Library Association Conference

sounds like fun, right? Not usually...but this morning I got to see about 10 minutes of clips from the illustrious screen career of Dame Julie Andrews before hearing her speak about her other career...writing and publishing children's books. In those clips was the coolest thing I've ever seen at a library out-take of Julie Andrews in a retro roller derby uniform and skates. Apparently, it was from her short-lived variety hour that aired in 1972-1973. I wish I had the time to scavenger for a picture.

Also, my second-favorite library professor who is now dean of my alma mater won a lifetime achievement award. The only bad experiences so far for TLA 2006 are the usual librarian fashion fuck-ups...bleeegghhhh.
