Can you think of a better way to kick off? Not I, said the fly. Yes, the world’s most confused woman (not me) is celebrating her 50th birthday. I am pleased to report that Harper Collins is allowing me to reveal this video today. The strange thing about Amelia B is that she seems to just get younger as she gets older. And naturally, I cannot go much further in this blog post before linking to my favorite Amelia Bedelia video of all time. An all boy cast reenacts Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia. I just love the star of the show.
And now, the heartfelt out-of-work librarian blues. A little too familiar to some, I’ll bet. Dead on with the “old ones are retiring” part. They told me that in library school too.
Thanks to AL Direct for the link.
Though I had heard the Jarrett Krosoczka / Jack Gantos story before, I don’t know that it was captured on film until this moment. Here’s a rather fabulous video that accompanied the NPR piece ‘Lunch Lady’ Author Helps Students Draw Their Own Heroes.
Finally, it’s a short week so let’s do our off-topic video. This one’s been making the rounds and it’s fairly self-explanatory. I look forward to more in the series.
