Dayjob Hazards

I am both revered and reviled by the general pubic. I have been made to smile and made to cry.

But today was a first: I was asked out on a date. I’ve been hit on before (one guy still comes in and checks to see if I’m still married) but flat being asked on a date was very new. I very diplomatically told the nice man I usually go to lunch with my husband.

Gosh it’s so hard being so hawt! XD

It really makes me wonder where the librarian fantasy came from. There really aren’t many writer fantasies. "Secret Window" does NOT count… Even though I could stare at Johnny Depp forever, his character is the quintessential writer stereotype: Unwashed, nap driven, chip eating, couch lumps who sit at the computer every so often to churn out a few pages to line the shelves of your Barnes and Noble.

While I work out how librarians got to be smexy, I also need to see if we can make writing sexy. Something other than a relationship or sex advice columnist for a magazine. I must have seen that plot on the back of a dozen romance/erotica/there-is-a-thin-plot-between-sex-scenes books. How do we change the image of the quintessential writer?

Aaahhh, and I see Epic Fail has not given up yet. I am seriously considering launching a campaign to take every one of Shyamalan’s ideas and re-write them. When I was active on Twilight Sucks, they had a Twilight series re-write. I see no reason not to do the same here. >}

I am eevviill… Maybe that’s why I keep getting hit on. XD

  1. I think part of the librarians = sexy thing is the disciplinarian angle. If you don’t follow the rules in the library the librarian will scold you, and that’s a pretty standard dynamic that’s been fetishized.

  2. I guess since I sit behind the desk and we’re told we are a “service profession” my perception is a little skewed.
    Nope, didn’t help. “Service position…” *snerk*

  3. I’m probably in a minority thinking that intelligence is sexy as fuck. She has big boobs, a big booty, but does she have a big brain to go with it? >}
