How nifty lifecollage is

I’ve known lifecollage for quite a while, and thought she was nifty from the first. When I met her she was still in library school. (I forget whether I knew her through mizarchivist, vice versa, or I met them independently.) I’ve totally got a thing for librarians and libraries; I revere books and knowledge, and I admire the people whose vocation it is to preserve books and knowledge for generations to come, and to disseminate them to people now. But that’s sort of a tangent.

Anyway, lifecollage has always been somebody who struck me as an adult in all the right ways – in a way that docorion and missdimple are, for instance, but I am not so much – while still being deeply connected with her capacity for fun. She strikes me as a person who will Know What to Do in any situation. She’s the sort of person you want in charge of any project you care about. She’s smart, interesting, charming, fun, cute, and simultaneously sweet as honey and tough as nails. She says what she thinks and what she thinks is worth paying attention to. I don’t see as much of her as I used to, alas, but I am glad when I do, and I’m glad that so much of what she’s busy with makes her happy and fulfilled. She’s good people.

I too have a thing for libries and librarians. But they're evil the same way dope pushers and tobacco companies are. They prey on my weakness. For example, they have used book sales on summer weekends where you can get good books for anywhere from 10 cents to $2. Sometimes they are truly pernicious and have bag sales. Is it any wonder that I'm addicted to books? I can't help myself. I'm weak and libraries take advantage of my weakness. Is there a bibliophiles anonymous chapter anywhere?

P.S. I'm sure that bookteacher and mizarchivist are fine human beings (I may even know and like them, I just don't them by their LJ handles) despite their choice of an evil profession.

[Beam!] Thank, you, m'dear. And you're right; we haven't gone out for silly animated movie in a while. We should remedy this some time that isn't Total Social Chaos!

For the record, I met you by coming to Poly Boston meetings at your house and dragged MizA along after a while. Most folks don't recall that I got her into the Boston social scene (and am very glad I did. ;^)
