Book Cart Drill Team

A Book Cart what? Drill Team. That's right, another stereotype smashed*. This time librarians. Sure, they sound like little old ladies who like things nice and quiet. Apparently not. Apparently they can dance. And move. And get down.

If I had known librarians were like this, I might have gone more often. Just search on "book cart drill team" and you'll see a slew of videos. Check out the Thriller one, it's good.

*My stereotypes on teachers was smashed years ago when I walked in on my wife and another older teacher (who could have easily been my mom's age) talking about sex (after school and without kids in the room of course). And what she wore to bed. And I wanted to curl up and die form embarrassment. Who would have thought teachers had sex?!

You realize, of course, that your uncle is a librarian - as are all 4 of his wives. I spent many-a-summer at librarians' conferences all over the county. Those folks can get crazy wild, let me tell you.

The drill teams are nothing new. Even when I was kid working in the library we used to do impromptu stuff like that.

And if you enjoy that, you should enjoy Pimp My Bookcart: . If you clikc on 2006 and 2007 you'll see all the fine photos. 'Support Glitteracy"? COME ON! How could that not win???

Yes cinda, I know there are librarians in the family (as well as teachers) but it was one of those innocent stereotypes. Kind of like telling a kid there's no more Easter Bunny. I knew it, but just didn't want to believe it.

And yes, Glitteracy was good, but I prefer the Mystery Machine (even though I never was much of a Scooby fan).
