About meI was a "scary" librarian (or so my boss used to tell me). I presented a "constant stream of negativity." Meanwhile, up near my brain, "there's no one in charge." A school psychologist pronounced me, as a child, "a wart on the ass of humanity." I suppose everyone is entitled to an opinion, and everyone has an attitude, and mine keeps improving.

About my libraryI used to collect drug books, and I have given away many to libraries and other collections. I'm using LT to keep track of the sci-fi I READ, so I don't own all of them, either
