Today is also the birthday of Melvil Dewey, according to the Ohio Library Council via Facebook:

It's Dewey Decimal Day! On the birthday of Melvil Dewey, we honor all librarians. Dewey, born in Adams Center, New York, on December 10, 1851, invented the Dewey Decimal System for classifying books.

Whew - I've escaped the grocery for this afternoon!  Richard and I are going to an early concert at Miami University and will come home right past the Kroger that the fire department evacuated the last time I was there.  We'll stop there this evening and hope for the best!

Actually, I prefer the Library of Congress classification system.

Happy Birthday DR MBARNUM.

For some reason I cannot post on your FaceBook wall - when I get to it, there is no BOX to write in.

I like to read about SPIDERMAN - for better or worse.

Ditto, too. :)

I like the debate. It's better than the debate about whether the wealthy deserve more tax cuts. Maybe Congress can force the rich to back more musicals.

I don't know why but I am so happy. I took my niece on Sunday to ride the Christmas train and so she could bring in her picture to Santa. There was a contest where 30 kids get to have breakfast with Santa. My sister just called and my niece won. :)

Well it's only breakfast with Santa. But I"m sure she'll be excited.  When she entered my sister had to explain to her that she probably wouldn't win.  But when I put the ballot in I could see in the box. And there weren't that many entries (not sure if they emptied it each day). So I thought maybe she had a 50% chance to win (assuming that they did not take them out each day). I can't wait till my sister tells her.

It is Friday.

The Boxes of Carrie - that is the title of a new Stephen King novella.

I wonder if Stephen King knows (or at least, has been told) that the complete soundtrack is finally being released.

Not sure. Probably not.  I'll see if my sister cares if I go. I think it would be cute just to watch. It is at 9am though on Sunday.

I feel like a lunatic. I keep "refreshing" my library's page for a certain book I'm waiting for. It is the final book in a series i love. And they book is in processing (it came out on tuesday and they got it yesterday). I really want to go pick it up later. Fingers crossed that they can process it today (it usually takes about a day).

A Question for BK (even though it's Friday).  You wrote in today's notes:

I also got the good news that the three UK cast albums I mentioned the other day have cleared and we’re definitely doing them early next year, hopefully by the end of January. I think all three will make show collectors very happy.

Now that things are official...can you give some hints?? :D
