Tonight at the bar Dad told the true story of when their boat broke down on Lake Victoria, almost got run down by a giant ferry (which he avoided by fixing the searchlight fuse with cigarette foil) and then they were rescued the next day by his friends Mahmoud and Tony Cocaine. ... My dad is kind of a badass, you guys.

I sorta give the Elsa one the side-eye, because I've got two different friends with her white-blonde hair color -- no roots, but the Pocahontas one cracks me up every time. - Jennifer Dittrich
Elsa has naturally white-blonde hair, so I think they're stretching for that one. Ariel and Pocahontas are like expectation vs reality. - Heather
With Elsa, I wish they'd show a bunch of hair just not in the braid since it isn't secured or anything. I mean, my hair pokes out of braids even when it /is/ secured. - Jennifer Dittrich

Me, at end of class: "Any further questions? Anything you have always wanted to know about librarians but were afraid to ask?"
Student: "Do you spawn?" - Steele Lawman
March of the Librarians video time! - RepoRat
Me: "It's sexual reproduction, but you aren't guaranteed to give birth to another librarian. Anyone else?" - Steele Lawman
I want to like this about five more times. - Catherine Pellegrino
Like salmon returning to the stream in which they were hatched, the intrepid librarian returns to the top floor of of the academic library where their librarians dreams were hatched.... (Basement of public library or nook in school library, etc, as appropriate.) - John Dupuis
LOL - lris
That is excellent. Nice footwork - Aaron the Librarian
I'm stealing this for my class on Monday. - Lily
If you bring up the sexual reproduction part yourself, it might be awkward. - Steele Lawman
"Why are you all so awkward?" - Lily
nice. - YvonneM
a student once asked me why so many librarians wear cardigans. he said he'd always wanted to ask that. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
How did you answer? Something like "Concealed carry?" - Steele Lawman
"It hides the second brain." - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn

Current mood: reluctant to spend staff time digging up info so vendors can decide how to price their product to us.
If any of you have had any luck doing anything other than digging up all the info, I'd love to hear about it. - Rachel Walden
What happens if you "estimate"? #ididntsaythat - Meg VMeg
Not sure with this one. I just resent being asked to essentially do their market research for them. - Rachel Walden
Correct - Meg VMeg
Happy Birthday to ToddlerX!
Happy birthday, little guy! - Catherine Pellegrino
Happy Birthday namesake! :) - Pete

Happy birthday! - Maitani

Yes! Happy birthday to him! - Marianne
Happy Birthday!! - Hedgehog
Yay! - Steele Lawman
Happy birthday! - Laurie Boots
Thank you so much! #toddlerx is now. Mr. 3. So far today we have both had tantrums by way of celebration. - laura x
Happy, happy birthday Mr. 3 and may the tantrums result in useful purges of all that is overwhelming. - Galadriel C.

I wish that professors who weren't technologically adept would at least have the sense to be ashamed of that fact, rather than trotting it out as proof of their authenticity as a humanist.
Inspired by Catherine, I'm saying "no" to attending a meeting over lunch today. #rebel
remembering Mr3's musing before Christmas that "This potty train is too fast." A poignant thought on the difficulty of potty training when you don't even know the word "training."

I think I am going to be making use of this. - Zamms
Not my thing, but I understand the temptation all too well. - RepoRat
I. LOVE. THIS. - Catherine Pellegrino
I love this, too. - Christina Pikas
I get a 403/Forbidden error, but if it's what I suspect, I'm with RR. - Walt Crawford
I think they weren't prepared for all this traffic. I think you slashdotted it. - Steele Lawman from Android
"The craft herpes will go everywhere." Love. - laura x
Got through. Man, that is one nasty site. (There's nobody I dislike enough to do that to, but at, what, $8.16 at today's exchange rate, I can see the temptation.) - Walt Crawford
Make sure you read the FAQs. - Jason P
What Jason sez. - Walt Crawford
heh - RepoRat
I want to like this again for Catherine's link. - bentley
Yes. Oh man. That just drastically improved my day. - laura x from iPhone
Did you see that 24 hours later the guy who started this is already sick to death of glitter and begging people to stop placing orders? - Steele Lawman from Android
John Dupuis
In case anyone is interested, the YorkU Magazine has quite a nice feature on academic blogging, in which I'm one of the people interviewed. Beware, there is a rather large and terrifying picture of me involved.
Nice sweater. - ellbeecee
Very nice picture. - bentley
Not scaryat all! and nice to have your work recognized this way. - barbara fister
It's a nice picture! - Christina Pikas
Thanks for the kind words. I think I was kind of expecting a little head shot tucked away in a corner somewhere. Though I guess I shouldn't be surprised as the photo shoot was with an outside professional and lasted nearly an hour. - John Dupuis
Looks good! Nice stare off to infinity. - Joe
LOL, thanks. - John Dupuis
Mary Carmen
Definitely felt the baby move. Still amazed by it.

Pro tips for today: Not all women with children are married and not all women who are married change their names.
The more you know! - Meg VMeg
It's stunning, I know! Somehow the part where I checked "single" on the form under marital status confused her. Also I guess the part where #toddlerx's dad has a different name and address. So confusing. - laura x
*clutches pearls* - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android
Indeed. Traveling with Eivind and the kids gets complicated because we all have different last names. - Jenny H.

Country-fried steak was a success tonight. On a tip from @cpikas, I ended up using a Cooks Illustrated recipe. Very good. #foodhat
cool! - Christina Pikas
Let me SEE it! - SAM from iPhone
Sadly, we won't be having any leftovers, though; I forgot to put them away in the fridge last night. :( - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I didn't even think to take a photo, but I'll definitely try to remember that when we do this again in a month or so. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
#SaturdayFF (tangentially related to LB's post) I use cups and paper towels over & over again, pretty much all day long. It drives me nuts when someone goes behind me and throws them out or puts them in the sink/dishwasher before I'm done using them.

Oh ho! It's out! Here's the big deal we're cancelling.
This was the publisher that tried to force us to sub to their ebooks in order to keep our current deal. Also, their idea of when a title could be cancelled is insane. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Just sent this to my head of collections. - Hedgehog
This is the first US consortium I've seen announcing a big Big Deal cancellation. Did I miss anything, or are y'all pioneers? - RepoRat
Also sent to mine.... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Wow. Thanks for posting. Forcing subs to e-books to keep journal deal is indeed insane. - Galadriel C.
Head of CollDev sent it out to our faculty this morning - Hedgehog
With that budget cut, I imagine big deals are on the table? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
"the CSU libraries did not find the value of the additional content compelling" - Marie
Shared with our collection development librarian. - ellbeecee
shared with our peeps too - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Good for you for challenging the Big Deal. - maʀtha

I'll be curious to see how many campuses subscribe to Wiley packages on their own (I'm also at a CSU library and we've decided not to subscribe to any Wiley packages until the system can re-negotiate something). - Laura Krier
From my small sample of 4 people I've happened to talk to, no one is taking a package, just individual subs. That's at least 2 of 3 biggest ones, though. Can't wait for the report from EAR next week. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl

RT @jbw_1: Dear Automakers- we don't want bigger touch screens, we want physical buttons so we don't die looking at menu options in your stupid UI
AMEN. - Big Joe Silence
I guess that's where voice recognition could play a role. But in many cases that functions poorly, so can be just as distracting. - Stephan from iPhone
And then I read about capacitive touch screens and I keep thinking: never been in Canada at -40° wearing gloves? - Stephan from iPhone
Sew conductive thread into the fingertips of your gloves! - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Yeah we're working on it. :) - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android
This is something I look for when car shopping. After being in a car where you have to go through menus to adjust fan speed, I decided my must-have button list was audio (pause/play/next/prev/volume) and climate control (ac/vent, fan speed, temperature, defroster). I'm ok with maps being on screens, but ideally pan and zoom would be buttons. - Amit Patel

RT @xor: I'm opening an academic-publishing-themed restaurant. You bring the ingredients and get volunteers to cook and serve. Now pay me $10,000.

Those'll have to wait. I need a hat to sew the beard into and then I need to mail the whole thing to Mr3. - lris
