Books, babies (well, two kids), social justice (throwing alliteration completely out the door), general geekery (welcome back! Although it's a cheating sort of alliteration with the hard g following the soft g), and random wildness. Missing Colorado's mountains but loving Chicagoland. the.librarian.pirate at gmail dot com

In my department we make storytime baskets. We set a theme for the week, and one person pulls a bunch of books, flannels, songs, etc. on that theme and everyone pulls from there for storytimes. Makes storytime planning fast and easy for everyone but the basket maker. Kaylee was in the other week when we had a dog theme and she told me my next basket had to be cats. I aim to please, but there are so many cat books I decided to limit myself just to books from the last 2 years. There were still almost 100! After weeding them down to just the club bangers, here is the bones of my storytime basket - fun books about cats for your storytime pleasure.

spiletta42: prairiedawn: temporalodyssey: Gonna post this quickly before the meme dies I mean, if you don’t count healing a Roman Centurions young male lover without commenting negatively on the relationship, then I guess…. (we mistranslate pais on purpose, just like we regendered a number of the earliest Christian leaders as male.) The text goes out of its way to deliberately use the word pais and point out that deliberate choice and yet it still got mistranslated. I want to tie every homophobic so-called christian to a folding chair and make them endure my lecture on the word pais make that my life’s mission Jesus and I will be happy. Pais is ‘beloved or same sex-lover’ and it gets mistranslated to ‘servant’ even though the other word for servant is placed squarely in the passage to make the word choice obviously deliberate. Both Matthew and Luke use the word ‘pais’ making it very very clear that the man was the centurion’s lover. Jesus praises the centurion’s faith and does not comment negatively on the relationship, he blesses it. Now, Jesus healed thousands. But most of the individual stories that tell of healings highlight specific points – the woman at the well, the centurion’s lover, the Canaanite woman, etc. – that marginalized people deserve Christ’s healing and love just as much as everyone else. They are all shown to have exceptional faith. So-called christians today would have us block women’s healthcare, while Jesus himself healed a woman with menorrhagia. So-called christians today are hostile to immigrants, while Jesus held up the Canaanite woman as an example of great faith. So-called christians today label homosexuality as the ultimate sin, while Jesus himself blessed the centurion and his pais.

librarianpirate: A few weeks ago our umbrella got caught in the wind (the girls had opened it while waiting for the bus and I hadn’t noticed) and our glass table shattered in the grass. Since then I have spent hours pulling glass out of the grass. Can anyone think of a better way to do this? I don’t know that I’ll ever trust this patch of grass to not have shards of glass in it again. You guys are geniuses. Shop vac is working wonders
