A Gary Numan shirt over leopard print jeans and combat boots is still “business casual” if you wear a blazer over it right

Does it count if the blazer has a Neubauten patch and multiple band buttons on it

"Do you work here" no no I just stand at the staff desk and am logged into a staff computer and am wearing a staff lanyard for shits and giggles b/c clearly nobody who isn’t a woman 50+, a dude, or 100% conventional-looking could ever be a librarian

I am the world’s worst reader’s advisory person ever b/c all I ever read are graphic novels and pulp detective fiction from the 40s

Someone’s all “can you recommend a Christmas book for my book group” and I have to forcibly stop myself from replying “HAVE U TRIED RAYMOND CHANDLER”

My co-worker agrees that it does look like Nina Hagen is eating cornbread in that pic (but why?  cornbread in Germany?) and suggests “bucolic” rather than “rural”

Well I like books and don’t think that something should have to circulate 10 times a year to deserve staying in the collection and think that public libraries should have classics and challenging nonfiction on their shelves alongside James Patterson, so sadly, I am officially Not Hip by many standards, but I also have no respect for those standards so

Believe me, I appreciate the votes of confidence  :D

I forgot my blazer so I’m in a t-shirt and multiple tattoos are showing, I’ve been playing Neubauten quietly over the class speakers as students come in, and I plan to do my demo searches on the history of and changing attitudes towards tattooing.  Am I a hip librarian yet?
