If I Closed the Library at Night

I would announce the closing over our intercom using song parodies. I made one up on the way to work this morning to Semisonic's "Closing Time," which honestly took...not a lot of effort. Closing time is closing time, you know? You can find the real lyrics here. And I'll leave you with my song.

Closing Time (Library Remix)

Closing time-Open all the doors and let you out onto campus
Closing time-Turn all of the lights off over every boy and every girl
Closing time-One last call for checkouts so finish your papers and homework
Closing time-You don't have to go home but you can't stay here
I know who I want to check me out
I know who I want to check me out
I know who I want to check me out
Check me out
Closing time-Time for you to go out to the dorm rooms you will be from
Closing time-This room won't be open till your classes begin again
So gather up your jackets, move it to the exits
I hope you have found your sources
Closing time-Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end
I know who I want to check me out
I know who I want to check me out
I know who I want to check me out
Check me out
Closing time- Time for you to go out to the dorm rooms you will be from
I know who I want to check me out
I know who I want to check me out
I know who I want to check me out
Check me out
I know who I want to check me out
I know who I want to check me out
I know who I want to check me out
Check me out
Closing time-Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end

I think everyone has their own version of that song. Not to belittle your accomplishment.

Oh yeah. Writing the library remix= not what you might call an accomplishment. Actually singing it over the intercom at NGU? Perhaps. Especially if you didn't get fired.

I have just caught up with all your recent posts and this is what I'd like to say...

a. I looooove Rent's soundtrack. In high school I had a friend who was obsessed with the play (went multiple times) so we would re-enact the cow song over and over....among others.

b. in case you ever want to pick me up something at Starbucks, my drink of choice is a Vanilla Steamer (I don't like coffee)

c. Your homestarrunner post was awesome. I also just left a quote on my blog from teen girl squad. "ahhh, my most of me" It's my favorite. Also....corn chips are no place for a might warrior either.

d. I literally JUST played the "in bed" game at lunch with some co-workers. I had no chinese but they did. They are adults, this is a ministry, yet I still made them play. Luckily they found it funny instead of perverted. Woot.

I wish we had an intercom at the library. I think I would sing that song.. :) It would make people actually leave the library on time for once. Hmm.. ideas...
