Eating tiny little pizza squares somehow makes me feel like a little kid again even though, as far as I know, I never had pizza that way until graduate school. Pizza in tiny squares should be served with those Little Hug Juices

Last year, a librarian showing me around her workplace indicated the media room and said, "This is on its way out." I disagreed: libraries do not have access to most streaming services, and the money spent on digital content we're allowed to license drains our budgets while the content evaporates.

Whatever, man. "Banned Books Week" is good branding. "Books-with-content-that-some-individuals-objected-to-and-sought—with varying success—to-have-removed-or-reclassified Week" doesn't have the same ring. It's a celebration that we *don't* ban books!
