Babies Are Satan's Alarm Clock, and other stories from Monday

Quite possibly my favorite thing I have ever read:
"Today the sight that discourages book people most is to walk into a public library and see computers where books used to be. In many caes not even the librarians want books to be there. [...] I'm well aware that computers have many valid uses. . . . but they don't really do what books do, and why should they usurp the chief function of a public library, which is to provide readers access to books? Books can accommodate the proximity of computers but it doesn't seem to work the other way around. Computers now literally drive out books from the place that should, by definition, be books' own home."

I just voted for Steve McGarrett's abs over Chuck Bartowski's sad lack of curls in recent years. I don't feel good about myself. Especially not after I saw how Chuck was losing and then remembered the former's nasty tattoos versus how I actually love the latter in spite of the haircut. Nooo, undo, undo! You have not already counted my vote, the vote is wrong!

Shove aside, "What Remains"! I have a new favorite.

Jim Time Lord

Spam ALL the things!

A) I can't quite tell if I'm going to love or hate the next episode of The Office -- it seems polarizing -- but I can tell you I laughed harder than should be humanly possible at Dwight grabbing Jim's crotch. I cannot believe I just wrote those words about an actual clip  from the show.

B) Apparently Castle and I will be making regular dates for the remainder of the season any time there is a hint (or a giant bucket) of emotional gold in the preview. STUPID TWO WEEKS FROM NOW. Why did I have to visit Tumblr so early? Especially since, as it turns out it'll be a 2-parter with another break, I am resigned to sitting on my hands until December so I can collect both pieces at once.

C) Icon meme

1. Reply to this post with "WHY DO THESE PROMPTS HAVE TO BE SO RIDICULOUS?" (I'm a rebel!) and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.
