    I’m the same. At Kapers people thought I was pretty informal, but where I work now, it’s the total opposite. I get told off for looking like a consultant!

    I hope you don’t get douched. Or however you spell it.

    At least you ride a bike, that is very brunny/fitz. maybe you will need to move to Coburg…

  4. i lose valuable credibility points cause my bike doesnt have a basket, handlebar tassles, plastic flowers, or any other accessories. bobo i dont think ive been douched – but im not sure what it means either. freofan, resembing a consultant is not good, you need to take a good hard look at yourself and think why this perception.

    Dear Bookbitch
    It is clearly fate that you were drawn to read JV Carmichel’s tome – now you too can write your own thesis on librarian ethics to explain away your life. May I suggest a title:

    “The new wave of omnivorous librarian chic – why adzuki beans, faux grunge and pink tassels on bikes are so last year”

    This should assist you in explaining to painful colleagues why they should get with the program and quit being reverse-snob grunge chicks (I bet she’s a trust fund ho as well – those “adult reader lib’ns are all the same).

    Totally different subject – but was that Neil from Orchestream Support in one of your photos with a turban on his head?

    I’m off to Byron Bay this weekend to also pretend I am world class surfer chick, despite post-Easter inability to fit into my boardies.

    Thanks for the celebrity stalker tips – next time I see Jack Johnson in the carpark – I will flash him.

  6. Dear doorbitch – yes, carmichael has opened my mind to new possibilities in furthering my education via frivolous and self serving research projects (you do know that I have already ‘seriously’ researched geisha chic as a thesis topic, don’t you?).

    I am confident that in time ‘trust fund ho’ and I will be eating kebabs and deconstructing the latest Anya Hindmarch collection.

    ps Yes that was Neil. And pps, you might bump into Kelly (Slater, that is) and other hotshot surfers in Byron cause the Bells Beach Classic has just finished. So keep an eye out and be ready to stalk. I hope you had a great time there, I’ve never been to Byron but would like to one day.

  7. Cousin, FOM (Friend of Micky, the special librarian)

    I am shocked that you were not a little more prepared for the superficial assessment of your garments by your fellow employees. Surely you were wearing that cute zimmerman pinafore as featured on the sunday age “life” magazine, and had this handy article in your back pocket to refute any allegations of corporate whore-ness (no doubt you also have the receipt showing that you bought said pinafore at 60% off, to prove that you did not pay corporate whore prices).

  8. Hi Cousin! I’m so not down with zimmerman pinafores, so no. Though last weekend I did notice that Veronika Maine does library chic very well, should I (as bobo puts it) be truly into reproducing library stereotypes in order to subvert them. There is the best cape that I would need if I didn’t already one. Has Mickey read this site? I hope not as I think she would be appalled that librarianship is being dragged into such depths by the younger generation.
