A Cataloguer's Desktop Tidbit

"Being in love is never about sex. It's what feels like another God-given call, something equally divine. There's no greater turning point than that in anyone's life"

Beautiful words that caught my eye as I flipped through Sister Karol Jackowski's The Silence We Keep : a Nun's View of the Catholic Priest Scandal while cataloguing it (yeah, I know you think I READ all the books ... physical description requires flipping through each book to check for illustrations, maps, pages of plates, etc. :P ). Sister Karol doesn't claim to have produced a scientifically researched publication; she states at the beginning that this book contains her thoughts, feelings and opinions ... not only about the sexuality of priests and nuns, but about the history and future of the Church that she loves (while being fully aware of its warts) and serves.

Definitely not a scholarly volume, but one that looks interesting and that provides a look at the world from a rarely available viewpoint.

Recently a thread somewhere in the convoluted tangle of my friends' LJs drew very close to comparing support hotlines with 900 services (or something along those lines ... I haven't been able to track down the post), which reminded me of a lovely Royal Canadian Air Farce sketch that I only owned, unfortunately, on cassette. However, the lovely Calgary Public Library System owns it on CD and I managed to get my hands on it tonight. :-)))))))

So now I can share with you the ultimate in technical support: the Goods and Services Tax Hotline!!!!!

P.S. If Quicktime doesn't work on your computer, let me know ... this file is small enough to e-mail.
