Certain people have made comments about my inability to blog regularly. If my memory serves me correctly, these may be the same people who insinuated I have too much time on my hands at work for blogging too much!
Anyways, it is a Sunday night and I am watching the end of Mr & Mrs Smith (average action film starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pit). Whilst watching Brangelina argue and shoot things is fun, I thought I might blog a bit too.
The topic of today’s blog is Evil Gypsy Lady (EGL for short). EGL was a patron of mine when I worked at a certain library service. She seemed to take great offence to the fact that I was:
b) not going to pull every Jackie Collins novel ever published out of my ar$e for her to borrow.
I remember asking someone else to serve her one time. I then felt really guilty for asking Ms. Librarian to do this as I knew it wouldn’t end well. EGL proceeded to call Ms. Librarian a ‘b!tch’ and tell her that she ‘hoped she got lost in the desert with no camels or water’. She then proceeded to use a four letter word starting with f (not fork) in front of children at the top of her voice and had to leave. I believe she received a politely worded letter from our CEO telling her not to come back.
EGL is easily distinguished by the tea-cosy she wears on her head and the shawl that she wears. She hates male librarians and is in love with Jackie Collins. Her nickname came about when she ‘cursed’ Ms. Italian for not procuring an early Jackie Collins novel. Poor Ms. Italian (who, by the way, is living more happily than ever…which just goes to show that EGL’s cursing powers were rather bad).
