Fusenews: Quick and Dirty
The other day we had some folks checking out the small glass room behind my reference desk thinking about possibly moving Mr. Pooh there someday. I wonder if they know about this little development in his fame. And now I have an internal debate going on, trying to decide if I should alert our bookstore. Looks like I have some time before I do. And as my boss put it, "Well, if Batman can do it, and Sherlock Holmes and Gandalf, I guess Pooh too can rise from the dead. I wonder if he’ll don a uniform and fly off to fight crime." Thanks to Educating Alice for the link.
McSweeney’s is hit and miss in my opinion, but this particular post did amuse me. It’s Parade Magazine‘s "What People Earn": Grimms’ Fairy Tale Edition. Pittance indeed. Thanks to Wagging Tales for the link.
Say, did you enjoy that Sesame Street book recap I did the other day? Well why not listen to the audio of that evening as well? You can catch all the things I’ve missed. It’s particularly fun if you listen to Caroll Spinney’s voice jumping in and out of various Muppet personalities. Big thanks to Wilson Swain for the link.
Zut! I came this close to missing the fact that former co-worker Warrent Truitt has summarized the Best Children’s Music Albums of 2008. Very awesome. If I knew any hip kids to give them to, you know that I would. I mean, how do you resist a children’s album like this?
Daily Image: Because life is too short not to indulge in blowing bubbles in sub-freezing temperatures. I can’t reproduce any of the images here, so you’ll have to see it for yourself. Thanks to Finding Wonderland for the link.
