Reference Boy

I still have a few days to work, but since I’ll be busy heading to the County of Los Angeles Public Library to talk about weblogs and IM for their staff day, and Wright State University for a full day of tech in library goodness, the TFML already hosted a farwell party for me.

It was a nice event, perhaps highlighted by being serenaded by the matchless Claudia. You might get a kick out of the song she wrote:

To the Tune of “Soldier Boy”

Reference Boy!
Oh, my little Reference Boy!
I’ll be true to you.

You walked through the door,
And you wore a pompadour!
When they picked me off the floor,
I was smitten, too.
Though you know your books,
You display some funky looks;
Everybody overlooks
That you’ve got a tattoo. (And I know where…*wink*)

Reference Boy!
Oh, My little Reference Boy,
I’ll be true to you.

You’re no barbarian,
You’re a librarian,
And a vegetarian,
And a disciplinarian (ooh!)
All the things I like!
You’ve got brains to boast,
And would never eat a roast,
But what I admire most
Is you can ride a bike (No training wheels!)

Reference Boy!
Oh, my little Reference Boy!
I’ll be true to you!
