Guess who is pregnant? That’s right, it’s Mrs Robinson and she’s pregnant to me!

I love library gossip. Let’s see some of the things I’ve been gossiped about since I started working in libraries.

1. Who I sleep with (men, women, no-one).
2. That I’m a virgin.
3. That I’m a giant ho (same person who thought I was a virgin changed their mind and decided I was a ho).
4. That I’m dating/sleeping with:
a) Monica (Library Tech Extraordinaire)
b) Tracy (bet ya didn’t hear that!)
c) Ruth (80 year old Doveton woman)
d) Perren (a friend from highschool)
e) Paul the shelver
f) Steven the lecturer
g) Suzie (cataloguer at Latrobe Uni)
h) Eda the fashionable librarian
i) Mrs Robinson

Actually, that’s about it. Why do library staff need to know who I’m sleeping with? It’s not any of them! (I have a policy of never dating a co-worker).

Although, finding out that Mrs Robinson is pregnant was new. And if she’s pregnant, I must be the father because we’ve talked on the phone and I called her Honeypie (Lucy, if you’re reading this you’ll know that my swear-jar is empty if I’m honeypie’ing people). Just for everyone else, honeypie is what a former co-worker used to call people who irritated her on the phone.

“Look Honeypie *grinds teeth*, if the power is out then your computer will not work no matter how much you yell at me…no, not even if you plug it into another powerpoint”.

And here’s to you Mrs Robinson…

    At last, the sort of blog I want to read. Keep up the good work, we want more details, more pictures, more gossip. I want to know the truth about you and Britney, you and Laura Bingle and that Shane Warne text. Quite frankly, we are all over this Libraries 2.0 – we want to move on to Who Weekly 2.0

    Did Ruth swear at you the whole time??? Isn’t she the person who scared everyone a bit?? People still ponder about you at times you know, maybe that is a good thing though, being able to arouse that much interest in people. I’m not sure I get much of a passing thought.

    Please Sir, can I have some more?
    These 2.0 blogs are terminal to read, except for you Mr. Carp. Please keep it coming.

    Aha! Finally something that people want to read, me ranting and raving.

    Primrose: Ruth was a lovely old lady. The swearing lady was Evil Gypsy Lady. Maybe I’ll blog about her…

    History: I want Who Weekly 2.0!!! Finally, somewhere where I can decide what the gossip will be about. Did you know that Shane Warne has been texting Britney Spears and that he’s really the father of her secret adopted child Hooba Jooba Spears?

    Rabbitears: Thanks! I won’t stop Carping on (har har, little joke).

    You must be an interesting person if so many people are talking about you. I wish I was so interesting. You know its because women like to gossip, actually so do men but they wont admit it. I think its because when a man comes along with a hint of a personality women can’t help themselves.

    And its all your fault, you chose to work in a library environment. So tell us the good stuff, I mean the real stuff. Right now I’m at home sick and playing on my new computer so I need some juicy gossip.

    This has been up for a week now Christian am I am really bored with it, it’s time for the next installment. I have actually seen photos of Hooba Jooba Spears and that baby looks nothing like Shane Warne however the baby has an uncanny likeness to a certain Team Leader – Technical Services at a Library system not unadjacent to the western suburbs.
