Subject: BS: The Call Cuthulu.
From: J-boy
Date: 07 May 11 - 01:14 AM

I have heard the pipings of the Greater God Azathoth in my ears. For he is a Blind Idiot God that only the the mad might hear. Mad you say? Sanity is but a narrow vision of madness. Chaos is the only rule of the Universe. All praise Him and His Dreaming beneath the Sea. I wish I could find that library book. They want $33.49 unless I return it.

Two times now the library has told me that I still have a book that's long overdue. Both times I told them that I had returned it. Both times the clerk simply nodded and said "We'll check."

Both times they found it and the matter was dropped.

Worth a try.

PS If chaos were the only rule of the universe, nobody would ever plant a seed.

A library once claimed I still had a book that I distinctly remembered returning. I went to the library myself and found the book on the shelf. It was worth the trip to hear the librarian apologize.

I've done that, Jim - also returned books to my local branch several hours before visiting the main library where I was told one book had not been returned.

When I called my branch after I got home the librarian I spoke to remembered seeing it & marked it off. The problem was it was an old book & it's old barcode doesn't work under the new system.

When I return my books, I print out a list of the books. I hand the books to a person and make that person inital the list after comparing it with the books.

The most crazy thing about Cthulu is that he starred in an episode of Ghostbusters. I am not joking.

Recently (in March sometime) the library emailed me that a particular DVD was overdue. I went in and told one of the librarians that I was "almost sure" (being cautious, since I HAVE been known to make mistakes) that I had returned it.

They searched and didn't find, but told me to check with them in a week, which I did. Still not found.

"We'll list it in the 'Claims Returned', where the title stays for a year. If you find it in that time, turn it in, no penalty. If you don't find it and we don't find it here, we write it off."

Well, you can't get fairer than that. But I still "remembered" having returned it.

Last week, lo and behold, here was the missing DVD, lying flat across the tops of some books in our reference bookshelf! Can't imagine how it escaped discovery in the extensive search I had engaged in before I reported to them that I had turned it in, and searched again in the week's delay.

So the next day I hurried it back to the library. They removed the title from the "Claims Returned" list, with never a mumblin' word.
Never a word of fine or penalty.

Depends on the library. Eiseley, who posts mostly over on MOAB, has been known to disembowel -- slowly and with malice aforethought -- people who fib about returning stuff.

Twice in my years in Juneau the library has informed me that I had not returned a book. In both cases I distinctly remembered having done it- one of them I had returned the very next day because it was a quick read and I had stopped in again for something else. They couldn't find it.

The other time, although they were nice about it, it made me feel bad - until a month or so later I was browsing the same stack for the same type of reading material when lo and behold, here was the book. I took it to the front desk and said, Would you look it up- I think you have this down as missing.

She/they was not profuse in her apologies, although she admitted that they had only the only copy.

Not in that case, but I suspect in some cases another patron picks up a book from the counter where it had just been dropped off and takes off.

THAT'S why libraries want you to put them a bookdrop, not on the counter.

Oh, bosh.

Cthulu and me are old drinkin' buddies. All of them are nice folks -- why, I remember the time Yog-Sothoth was helping out at an old folks' home, playing Santa at the Christmas party. Ol' H.P. was a wet blanket and whenever he walked into a room the Joy Quotient fell like the thermometer in a blue norther. A real party-pooper. He wrote all of them stories just to "get even" with me and my friends. Ask the library director at the University if you don't believe me.

And by the way, the "Necronomicon" was a drink cooked up by Sam, the bartender at Larry's Tavern.

That frightful soul and messenger of infinity's Other Gods, Nyarlathotep, is probably clutching it amid the crawling chaos, and howling.

I'd just pay the $33.49, if I were you.

I did an online check for you and the book is that the Innsmouth Public Library. How it ended up there is anybody's guess. They don't deliver, however, so you'll have to go down there in person and pick it up.

They don't list their hours but say it's best to conduct your business before nightfall.

And for those who don't think Cthulhu is real
