"When I was in library school, some of the people were really nerdy..."

Professor Cathcart told a story last night in class about how she'd thrown a party for other MLIS students when she was getting her degree at the University of Minnesota, and that someone had stood up on a chair and started shouting the differences between Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress. She said she ducked into the kitchen and had a beer (or two, or three...) with her husband and one of their mutual friends, non-library people, in order to survive. "So, watch out!" she told us. Hilarious.
