Dreaming in Dewey

Well, it finally happened. Yesterday I had a rather detailed conversation with a colleague about how we assess a customer's needs for particular subject areas (in this case, graphic novels, a genre librarians like to pretend they are great advocates of to boost their "cool librarian" image).
I dreamt that night about being surrounded by heaps and heaps of manga and comics of all descriptions, and every object in the room had a proper Dewey number affixed to it, such as the chair having a 749 on it). I'm actually surprised, given the nature of my job (searching databases and scrolling through hundreds of bibliographic records an hour) that Dewey has not figured into more of my dreams.

Oh, by the way, did I mention that I had my 10-year anniversary recently? Yep, I've been a liberrian for 10 years now. Still not sure how it's working out.
