I am a Swedish librarian and... well that info gives most people quite a good picture of what I look like. And what I do for a living I suppose.

» Mistaken Identity

Not really mistaken, just a very bad pick up line.
In a bar a couple of years back: A bloke had been staring at me for a while and he finally approached me. He looked at me, smiled and said "You look just like Uma Thurman, but you're much uglier".

He then seemed to think that I was his for the night, but the only company he got in his trousers was my beer.

» The Dirty Secrets of Your Trade

Not so dirty secrets of a librarian.
1: As a librarian I hate (HATE!) when people ask for books WITH an author. So if someone asks for "the new novel with Dan Brown", I won't give it to them (I'll give them something equally shitty though, I don't want to ruin the statistics).

2: I do quite often get bored with the fact that everyone wants to read Marian Keyes, Dan Brown and Harry Potter. So I tell them that there is a long cue and give them something by Paul Auster or Douglas Coupland instead.

3: If you are a cute guy I just might make your fines for overdue books disappear.

» Best Graffiti Ever

Great sales pitch.
Written on the wall outside a big supermarket a couple of years ago:

"Eat only flour for a week, win a nice prize!"

(In big colourful letters, looked quite professional, I really hope that someone tried it.)

» Pet Stories

Very weird cat.
My mum used to have a cat named Oscar. Oscar was a bit pecliuar in the head and a very picky eater.

If he was given a sardine or a herring he would eat the whole fish, with bones and everything, but leave the fish eyes on the plate.

Two times per year (birthday and christmas)my mum gave Oscar a piece of princess cake, a rather nice cake covered with green marzipan. Oscar always removed the layer of marzipan with his claws, put it on the side of the plate and saved it for later. We still don't know if he did this because he wanted to get straight to the cakes yummy inside, or if he did it because he loved the marzipan and wanted to make it last longer.

» Childhood Ambitions

Lacking in logic.
When I was 3-4 years old i really wanted to be a cleaner. Why? Because I wanted to work at my nursery school so that I could play with my friends all day.
It took far to long for me to understand why it made my dad giggle.
