Everything is Catalogued: The Hipster Librarian

"Everything is Catalogued: The Hipster Librarian." Counter Punch / Linda Ueki Absher.
Washnigton:, December 7th 2010.

"It's finally happened: everyone wants to be me.  
Well, they don't want to be me, me.  After all, who wants student loans, an undervalued house and a sweater that looks like I've just mugged a red heffalump?  But everyone under thirty with skinny black jeans and artistic facial hair, or Bettie Page bangs and winsome skirts with felted bird appliqu├ęs (with an influential minority wearing all of the above) want to be what I am: a librarian.  This is a surprise, to put it mildly."
