Meaney Library Cards, Hot off the Press

We have a good relationship with our new neighbors. We hang out, we help each other carry stuff, we lend each other things.

Patrick went to San Diego last week and brought back a bunch of our books, so the joke was that we have a library now, and we should issue the girls library cards so they can borrow books.

Under normal circumstances this would have remained a joke, possibly referred to again once, and then forgotten forever. However, given the magical confluence of
1. A computer

2. A Thomas Meaney, stuck in front of this computer for 8 hours

3. A laminator

jokes have a way of turning into reality.

And so, without further ado, I am proud to present to you the official Apartment 4, Meaney Brothers library card:

The background of the left-hand side is a page of the folio version of Hamlet. Artsy, no?
The Latin is "Liber scriptus proferatur," taken from the fifth stanza of the Dies Irae. It means "A book will be brought forth," which I thought was appropriate.
