Know your LOC?

It’s about 80 degrees in my class right now, and there’s no real point to trying to take notes when it’s all redundant from the 6 pages of notes I took on the readings…

As a result, I bring you the LOC shelving game, courtesy of RaveLibrarians on Ravelry.

Strangely addicting! I’ve been having trouble picking up books though… maybe it’s just my browser…



So I’ve been tracking some books on my lists (by the way, is anyone else irritated by the fact it NEVER remembers your login for more than an hour or so, if that?), and one of them I had checked the stacks for last week but it wasn’t there, despite not being checked out or on hold. Okay, I figure, it’s on a cart somewhere, no big deal. I go back and check again last night after class, still not there. So I’m going to be a good user and go report it missing. Go down to the circ desk. Tell the guy I would like to report a book missing. Some other guy who’s also in the MLIS program is also behind the desk off to the side, shouts over and says “Don’t help her, she’s a library student!” to which I mock sneer (as anyone would), and thus have been outed as a MLIS student. Meanwhile, the guy has looked up the information for the book I’m missing.

“Says it’s in the stacks. It’s on the other campus. Would you like it shipped here?”


Because I apparently can’t read the name of the library that the call number is listed under. And I’m going to be a bloody librarian. Faaaaaaaaantastic…

I can has teh spellings plz?

I happened to be checking my Flickr account, reading the FAQ documentation on Mobile phone uploads when I came across the spelling of “teh” in the FAQ entry, complete with link to Wikipedia. I think it’s pretty funny how certain l33tsp34k and LOLisms are becoming a part of the every day language (you should see my class and reading notes, full of “O RLY’s?” and “NO WAI’s” when I’m trying to analyze something critically). And actually, I was getting pissed off at MS Word the other day because while trying to take notes in class, it kept auto-correcting me. And yet somehow, I’m still capable of constructing a complete sentence with proper punctuation…

Then again, I’m also one of about three people I know who use complete sentences and proper punctuation while sending text messages. I also hate text messaging.

Oh hai, what duz this MEEN???

Smarter Than Google.

I must obtain this, as it is a marvelous thing.

Ideally sooner, rather than later… t-minus 19 hours until this paper is due, and I am running low on caffiene!

My first “In the News” post!

Best to jump right in, I think…

So browsing through my RSS reader, I came across the headline of Canadian authors get over $9 million for library lending of their books via LISnews.

My first thought? This sounds terribly familiar.

Hello world!

Not being a newbie to WordPress in general, I decided to be ironic and leave the opening subject line. It’s not terribly funny, but it amuses me just enough. At any rate, welcome!
