No, Eva!

I'm a strait-laced sort of person as a rule, but in New Orleans #ala11, I tend to get a little carried away. 

Scolding is sometimes essential (with apologies to David Shannon).

Use your napkin, Eva!
No, Eva!  Leave some ARCs for other people!
Put that Tinkletini down, Eva!
No, Eva, not Nectar of the Gods as well!
No, No, No, Eva!
You said you needed "sensible shoes," Eva!
No, your Super Diaper Baby 2 cape is NOT appropriate Newbery/Caldecott Awards Banquet attire!
Get your hands off Madigan's gorgeous velvet wrap this INSTANT!
No jumping on the bed, Eva - it's 2 o'clock in the morning!!
Get up this instant, Eva!  You're late for your 8 am session!
Oh, Eva, you're still a Good Librarian.  It's just a good thing you don't live in New Orleans!


  1. have captured the fun perfectly! Sorry I didn't get a chance to bump into you at ala11...but there's always the next one. Enjoyed your alsc blog posts tremendously. Keep it up. Yes, Eva!

  2. Just love it. Glad to see your having a fabulous time.

  3. Yes, Eva, your mother loves you.

  4. So funny! Thanks for the giggle. Martha

  5. Perfect! Glad to see you had as much fun at ALA as I did! It was great to sit by you at the Newbery/Caldecott Banquet - you were lovely company AND it was relieving to not be the only vegetarian :)

  6. librarians gone wild!

  7. So much fun running into you at ALA, Eva. Thanks for letting me steal some of your fried pickles (like I needed them, with my embarrassingly generous serving of tater tots)

    Yes, I suppose you're allowed to covet my "dress robes"... beautiful AND cozy, I feel ready for any wizardly (or in this case, Newbery) function.

    Is that a drink in each hand I see? I may have sampled a Hurricane or two myself... you know, for quality control.

    What a totally awesome idea to institute the 2-fisted drinking in our office. Thanks boss! I'm not wearing the cape though.

  9. My favorite "Report on Convention Travel" EVER! Yes, yes, Eva!

  10. LOVE this! (Susan told me to take a look at your blog, and I'm so glad I did!!!)

  11. Wow! I'm amazed you were still standing when we ran into you waiting for the streetcar on Tues (:>)! To paraphrase the young woman who announced "Boy! There's lots of librarian love all over this plane" on our flight back from ALA--"Boy! There's lots of librarian love all over this blog!" Fun stuff. cm
