It's Official...

...the Mom is now a true Nerd (according to her).

Earlier this week, she got promoted from being a Library Assistant to being a Librarian. I thought humans needed a special degree for this but the town she works for is so small that anybody can be one.

This is really cool 'cause it means she gets paid lots more money--which means more Stinky Goodness for me--but according to the Mom it also increases her Nerd factor. I have no clue what a Nerd is, but if the Mom is one, it can't be all that bad. She nice, and smart, and knows how to treat me right most of the time (it's not perfect because she keeps bringing in Brats).

The Mom is really happy about this promotion 'cause she seems to really like the job and the people she works with. If she's happy, I'm happy. Just so long as she remembers to give me the daily minimum requirement of attention I need each day. Oh ya, and my Stinky Goodness.

Oh cats don't care about nerds, I don't think so it's all good. I think nerds tend to spend more time and effort on their cats too so it's probably a good thing!

Good for her! My mama loves books, and even worked in a library at her college when she was there. She says libraries are nice. If they have lots of books, then I live in one, cause we do. Libraries are not for nerds. They are for thinkers!

Happy news for your Mom. But I thought nerds were computer hogs. Anyway, congratulations on being able to have an abundant supply of treats and stinky goodness.

Our Grandma was a librarian for many years. First, she worked with the little beans and then she was the boss of the whole library. She liked the work very much, but she says now she couldn't handle all the computer stuff.
She says if you need to know a good local restaurant, always ask in the library or a bookstore.

I think our Mom's a nerd too cuz she works with the computer so much. But she's ok. So it must be ok to be a nerd. As long as she gives you your stinky goodness, that is!
Purrrrrrs,

I thought my mom would be a little upset with the "nerd" concern since she has one of those special library degree thingies but she said she embraced her inner-nerdness years ago. She also pointed out that her "library gig" has kept me in stinky goodness and v-e-t care for 18 years so I ought not to make disparaging remarks about it either. But we're all real happy for your mom! Congratulations -- Alberta
