Due to renovations and changes in staff, I still haven't been trained to do some of the things necessary for my job, which makes for long periods of time in which I basically have nothing to do but check my e-mail twenty thousand times a day and wait. Luckily, I just got a lovely package in the mail, and I will once again be busy making sure that digital images of historical newspapers meet Library of Congress image quality standards - yay!
I also spend quite a bit of time in the library's mail room for my job, and who knew that any good would come from that? Not me, my friends! But I was oh-so-wrong, as I realized today when I was rummaging through a giant box of styrofoam packing pebbles and came upon a graphic-tastic British airmail bag!
Can you say "RE-PURPOSE"?
I knew you could.
Ima take that sucker home, cut it up, and turn it into bags and purses and wallets! And then.... Ima sell 'em! Hopefully, if I troll the mail room frequently enough, I can find even more cool stuff. In fact, I think I'll mosey down there now....
