You know you're a librarian when...

...you're wandering around the world's largest Christmas store and you start to wonder, "How do they decide on their categorization system for all of these ornaments? What kind of metadata do they use in their internal tracking system? I mean, if I asked one of the clerks if they had any ornaments with skiing penguins, could she look that up in their computer by doing a Boolean keyword search on penguin AND ski*?"

Still technically on vacation. Back with real blogging (including my review of The Cult of the Amateur, which I finished on the way home from Denver) probably this weekend.
