Fun at work.

Student: “Do you have Shakespeare translated?’

Reference Interview: “Translated into what?”

Student: “English”

Ref Interview “Um, Shakespeare wrote in English. Do you mean an annotated version?”

Student: “That’s OK. I'll just go buy it.”

Ref Interview “What book are you thinking of buying”

Student “Othello”

(I quickly look it up, hoping for a modern English version. Victory!)

Ref Interview: “I have a copy of Othello in Modern English. Would that work for you?”

Student “Yeah! That would be perfect.”

(Student walks away)

Hello Jill
I just found your site and can souly identify with your love of hats. I am a hat designer artist here in Toronto. I invite you to visit my world. I saw your blog about Lilliput hats here in Toronto. She is a wonderful person who has devoted her life to hats like me. We have great respect for each others work. Thank you for celebrating the hat makers of the world!

I knew you were a super hero! Were you wearing your hat? (all super heros have an outfit, I've decided yours is topped off with a hat!)

Jill,
The Shakespeare story is a hoot! Hope Melissa over at MMV sees it.
