“I’m a children’s librarian.” “Do you like books, working with children, or both?” “Definitely both. I’ve always been a heavy reader. I’m interested in education, and I’ve always wanted to work with young people. Libraries are really vibrant community places. They are also among the few spaces left in the world that are truly free. And I think children’s libraries are some of the most exciting places in any decent city.” “Do you think that today’s young people read less than previous generations because of all the technology in our lives, as we often hear?” “People say that, but when you look at the statistics, it is 100 percent untrue. Young people read just as much, and often more, than young people in the past did. The same is true of adults. Reading has stayed the same or, in fact, gone up. Library use has increased enormously since the recession.”
i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.
See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.
I get this completely irrational and projected feeling that Patrick Stewart figured something out when he was 65 that he needed to figure out his whole life and that made him finally able to be happy and it makes me so happy to see him happy I just want to cuddle the idea of his happiness.
So I went to Dragon*Con a few weeks ago and found a great Snape and Ten cosplaying near each other. It was in the busy section of the vendor fair so I just asked for a picture of them together and ten just said “on a scale of 1-11 how close do you want us?” so I said “uh…12” AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED
