Stop and Smell the Flowers

If the announcement that I will be starting a new position didn’t tip you off, you might be able to deduce as much from my sudden rash of library-related posts. Over the last two weeks, my brain has been switched into overdrive. This is all well and good but I’m beginning to think that maybe […]

Tag, You’re It

Experienced Tweeters know to use hashtags to make it easier for others to follow a specific topic. A hashtag might be used for a general topic, such as #TV or #haiku. Professionals often hashtag conferences such as #ALAMW09 (American Library Association Midwinter Meeting 2009). I’ve seen a few professors encourage their students to get accounts […]

Columbus

If you are following me on Twitter, you already know that Tim and I hit the road Saturday morning for Columbus, Ohio to see the musical Spring Awakening at Palace Theatre. Tim already gave an account of the weekend and, since I’m feeling lazy, I won’t recount every detail. I enjoyed the show and the […]

Books and Plays and Things

I chose to work this MLK Jr Day. I am one of two people present in my unit  and maybe one of ten present in the entire cataloging division. I’m rather enjoying the quiet though. I am desperately trying to get through Sense and Sensibility before I watch the movie (1995 with Kate Winslet, Emma […]

Making with the Crazies

I haven’t had much time to think about anything but Rocky lately; nonetheless, I will try to make sure that my posts don’t become too ‘blah Rocky blah blah’. This is just Week One, after all. That being said, I want to get another plug in, simply because I am so proud of this cast […]

If John Cleese says so…

…then I am in no position to argue. John Cleese gives his brief thoughts on Palin becoming Vice President. OK, so he isn’t saying anything truly earth-shaking; plenty of us have been saying this since McCain announced his veep pick. Still, “Monty Python could have written this.” I’d laugh if this scenario wasn’t so terrifyingly […]

Tempestuousness in the Park

Last night, I saw a tech rehearsal of The Tempest, directed by Ben Aldred and produced by our very own Monroe County Civic Theater. I’m a fan of Ben’s work (Marx Bros. meet Will in Twelfth Night, 2006) and was intrigued by his concept for The Tempest. Roy (Prospero) continues to bowl me over with […]

Aftershock

I had an appointment with my doctor this morning to stock up on allergy-related prescriptions. I am NOT going to suffer this year. The opening weekend of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf went very well. We had a good sized-house opening night and received great feedback from folks after the shows. There is a review […]
