This is what happens when I look up my alma mater on YouTube..

Unexpectedly... exciting footage of my beloved St. John the Evangelist Library.

Me and my friends once plotted to hide in the library after hours and spend the night... good thing we didn't!

What do you mean, good thing you didn't??? Look at everything you missed out on!!!

Not bad at all. Really gorgeous library too. I know that the reference is to Night at the Museum, but I can't help thinking of the video for Tears for Fears' classic "Head over Heels." There are some similar hi-jinks and outlandish characters, and the architecture has a few similarities (though the Christendom library is more elegant than the one in the video).

I like the guy freaking out about his thesis. I've been that guy!!

BTW, I agree with Enbrethiliel: if you had stayed after-hours, then you could have been in the video too! There could have been, I don't know, some quick scene with you having a near fist-fight with (the ghostly manifestation of) some obscure poet over meter. Maybe Pindar?? ;)

(at least, that's whom *I'd* fight over meter) M

"Beats me, old chap. You're the librarian."


Oh, hi, Meredith. Dappled Things is lovely, btw.
