so it’s ‘party time’ in melboune right now ’cause of the big library technology conference that is on and all the suppliers are keen to impress clients and potential clients.
so i dragged the new reader services librarian (she’s irish, she likes wine, and by her own admission she’s a lush after a few glasses) and katy out to the two big events that were on that night.
needless to say were were home by 10.30. event number one – we never met the hosts. they had good taste in wine which filled in the absentee gaps quite nicely. the magician was mildly entertaining. event number two seemed to be a staff event with us as the gatecrashers. there was a cover band who did 80s hits – it reminded me of my year 12 school ball.
i dont think i will be attending any more librarians functions this week.
