Please Do Not Toss Food to the Librarian.

The librarian is currently in her summer hibernation. Tossing food into her office may cause her to wake prematurely. A librarian disturbed from her hibernation is very foul in temperament and often becomes violent.

Scientists have carefully studied the patterns of librarians and have acquired remarkable insight into the reason for this bizarre sleeping cycle. Its seems that in the months of July and August many of the species travel outside of their territories for 'vacations'. Those of the species who do not do so are left with few of their kind with which to communicate, interact, or otherwise carry out their daily patterns. Additionally, the librarians food source, the patron, also takes this time to travel between territories. For these reasons, those librarians who remain within their normal hunting grounds often hunker down in their offices to sleep, play computer games, and otherwise avoid jamming pencils into their ears to escape boredom.

It is a wondrous sight at the end of august when all the librarians are reunited. Those who slept vow to vacation next year and those who vacationed vow to stay home. And thus, the cycle continues.

You should! The boredom I had to endure... and then of course, friday afternoon the bosses began to realize that maybe I wasn't doing anything and I got dumped on with a shit load of work! Grr.
