Why yes, I am well aware that this blog has been a bit of a dead zone since I got back from RWA. Chalk it up to Wendy getting her sea legs back. So in honor of blog filler, let me show you what arrived at my office yesterday:
No, they're not from My Man. These are actually from Big Sis - who sent them in honor of my "Major Award" and my upcoming birthday extravaganza. Both of my sisters have taken to calling my RWA Librarian Of The Year honors my "major award" - which is ripped off from the movie A Christmas Story. A sure sign that they've both watched it one too many times when it runs for 24 hours straight Christmas Eve/Christmas Day on cable station TBS here in the states.
Of course this got me thinking. RWA did give me a very nice plaque, but it is a tinch understated. I'm thinking the honor needs to be commemorated some other way. I mean, besides the recipient (::cough, cough::) blabbing about it on her blog so much that people are probably bloody well tired of reading about it.
I think RWA should pony up for leg lamps. I mean, this is a major award!
And nothing says major award like a leg lamp. It would certainly help class up a good many libraries - just sayin'. Whoever is responsible for the RWA checkbook these days should look into this matter. Says me.
