Sometimes I don't want to tell people I'm a librarian. Mostly because 95% of the time they make some lame joke about Dewey.

Jackie Robinson, bearer of number 42, played his first MLB game today, April 15, 1947. - Derrick

Happiest to you, my friend - maʀtha
My birthday was last month. Indeed, everyone was wearing 42 -- but I did not get to see any of the games. - Julian

"To celebrate the upcoming anniversary of Nas’ iconic debut album Illmatic, God’s Son officially released Illmatic XX, a special 20th Anniversary Edition of the widely debated hip-hop classic via SONY Legacy. The exclusive collection includes a number of rare remixes, previously unreleased demos and freestyles. Today, a stream of those remixed tracks has been provided for your listening pleasure." - Eric - Let Me Know from Bookmarklet
I like Illmatic, but there are so many anniversary releases. And for all of their hubbub, I mostly just end up listening to the original ten tracks that make up the initial album. - Derrick
No problem with that. I will be adding The Lost Tapes to the rotation. I saw that's on Spotify now. - Eric - Let Me Know

I am going to make myself go to Target this afternoon over my lunch break because we need more non-spilly sippy cups. Please tell me something frivolous I could get there for me for $10-15 that will cheer me up.
cute socks? - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
boxed wine - kendrak
a t-shirt in an outrageous color - Catherine Pellegrino
Easter candy - Catherine Pellegrino
Bottle of wine :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
A place mat and plastic flatware and dish for lunches at work. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I totally misread gel pens and wondered when Target started selling sex toys... - WebGoddess
Bouquet of flowers. - Kirsten
Bunny ears. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
If I could get a decent sex toy in that price range anywhere I'd be astounded. :) - laura x
"decent sex toy" seems positively oxymoronic. - DJF
I was going to go now, but all the other senior staff have left the building, which makes me feel I should stay. - laura x
You guys, I suck at frivolity. I bought sippy cups, two glass canisters for food storage, envelopes, and a mop. - laura x
Were they frivolous envelopes? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. #10 safety. - laura x
was it a fancy mop? - ellbeecee
It was the best of a lot of bad options. I really miss my old mop that I bought at the Container Store years ago and foolishly left with my mother. - laura x
Swiffer. - Laura Norvig
I refuse to buy Swiffers because I am obnoxious that way. - laura x
boxed wine is a necessity. my new thing is placemats. - kendrak
I hate Swiffers. I thought it left my floor less clean than when I started. - ellbeecee
the only thing left that we haven't discussed are the glass canisters. do they have frivolous lids? - Marie
No. They're about the most frivolous things on the list, since I could go on storing the granola in a plastic bag on the counter, I suppose. - laura x
Dang, now I'm reminded that I really need a new mop and am thinking about what my options be other than a Swiffer. I guess an old school one with the wringer bucket? - Derrick
Nah. I'm with ellbee and laura on Swiffers. Good old sponge mops. Too bad Target discontinued the snazzy architect-designed spongemop and its refills (a couple years back); none of the newer ones work as well. (Can't remember the designer's name--he did dozens of household things for Target, but now designs for JCPenney, as a sideline.) - Walt Crawford
I used to mop my kitchen floor with cloth diapers and soapy water and then rinse with plain hot water or maybe hot water w/ a splash of vinegar. Way better than Swiffer, but my knees can't take it and it takes about five times as long and uses more water. - Laura Norvig
I have this thing by Libman that's like a Swiffer WetJet but with reusable pads and a refillable canister and it is my BEST FRIEND EVER. I think Rubbermaid makes one too. - Catherine Pellegrino
yup, i have the rubbermaid one and it is great too. it's has reusable pads, including one that you can use dry with fringy stuff on it to pick up stuff. ETA: http://www.rubbermaid.com/categor... - ~Courtney F
Close enough; I think mine's an earlier generation, but it's the same principle. - Catherine Pellegrino
WebGoddess - Some Target stores do sell the Trojan sex toys (or, so I'm told). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Gotcha. Gonna swing by the hardware store after work. :) - Derrick
Target has some DVDs for $13 or less this week. That might have added to the frivolity. http://www.target.com/sb... - Prairie & I Know It
i use a libman sponge mop and alternate that with swiffer wet and then sometimes just a wipe under my foot and skate around a bit... and my floors are still pretty dirty - Christina Pikas
I never watch DVDs, sadly. [ETA: Except of course for Stop Making Sense, which we watch daily.] - laura x
1. I like placemats for the cat food dishes. 2. Does anyone else think "libraryland" when they use their LibMan thingie? I have a LibMan scrubbie and every time I see it, I want to ask you all that. :-) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I haven't watched "Stop Making Sense" in years. I should dig that out & see if my VCR still works. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Derrick
Of course the net on campus dies right when I begin showing a class how to use the databases. Of course.
Congratulations. You're officially a librarian. - DJF
I sho nuff started using the dry erase markers and white board, though. - Derrick
Could have been worse. There's a war story here at MPOW about the librarian who was giving a database class and the vendor changed the user interface for the database right in the middle of her class. - DJF
Oh damn. - Derrick
(Is this where I say "I'm old enough to remember preparing powerpoints with screenshots for every instruction session, just for this eventuality"?) anyway, D, I'm sure you handled it with aplomb. - Catherine Pellegrino
Yeah, PubMed did that to a colleague of mine a couple years ago (interface update during class) - Hedgehog
I was able to sketch things out. This is a college writing class (think Eng 101) but the professor does everything with a true crime slant to it, so researching how to find things in anthologies, longform journalism on things like Jon Benet, Leopold and Loeb, OJ, etc. and how it was covered in the media and press. - Derrick
Training achievement unlocked! - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
level up. - Joe
And we're done. It came back up maybe halfway through the class and a few students had questions in their "on their own" time for the rest of the session. Oof. - Derrick
That's So CAJ!
I swear I used to have so much hair that looking at this picture feels like I was wearing a toupee.

Or maybe I just had a bad hairstyle back then. Either or. :) - That's So CAJ!

REVIEW: Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Fudge Core
My apologies to you with peanut allergies, but lord have mercy. I might have a new favorite flavor. - Derrick from Bookmarklet
Will not walk to Safeway. Will not walk to Safeway. Will not walk to Safeway. - Akiva
akiva if you walk to safeway though it will let you walk off the ice cream! - Sir Shuping is just sir
I love PB and chocolate together and would get the PB cup ice cream, but this has leveled up in ways I cannot articulate. Don't let me catch it on sale. - Derrick
Oh, I was afraid of this. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
I almost bought some of this earlier, but held off since I've had so much junk food this week. - Katy S
That's why I can't have this stuff around. Same thing with the Bryers Reese's Blast or whatever ridiculous name it has. I can't resist. And now I'm thinking about oh man. I need a moment. - Akiva
Oh, man. It's a good thing I can't eat ice cream. Although this might be worth it. - ~Courtney F
For as much as I love to eat, I'm really good with sweets. I can make make this pint last for a couple weeks if not longer. Now, hot wings? Hide yo chickens... - Derrick
Same here... except for anything related to peanut butter and chocolate. A few weeks ago, I tore my way through a six-pack of Reese's Eggs in an afternoon. Yep. Full-size six-pack of Reese's Eggs. Oh man. So good. - Akiva
I love PB. I love chocolate. I do not love them together. You all can have all of mine. - laura x from iPhone
¬_¬... I think I will. - Akiva
I love how I put my little mini scoops on a split banana, you know, so as to be healthy. o_O - Derrick
How does it compare to the original PB core that they had (back when they released Karamel Sutra in 2002)? - Hookuh Tinypants
I'm just gonna lay down here and breathe for awhile. - Akiva
Can't say, TP. I went a LONG time without eating ice cream and never tried that flavor. - Derrick
D, that totes counts as a fruit serving. :) - Prairie & I Know It from Android
Ended up with another It’s-It and hello, holy lord, etc. Way better than the first one. I need to introduce my kids to these things. - Akiva
this keeps coming up in my feed. want - maʀtha
Can I get this in Aus yet? - Mo Kargas
holly #ravingfangirl
y'all. if i get the ice cream maker attachment, i probably won't need to/shouldn't sign up for the ice cream CSA this year.
i know, i know. that's actually what made me think of this! - holly #ravingfangirl
They had some cool flavors, iirc. - Katy S
There are so many attachments I want to get but haven't. The ice cream maker, the meat grinder, the pasta attachments. Lots of cool stuff. - Derrick
I think you need the ice cream CSA for inspiration for ideas of how to use your new attachment. - Trish R
And I want the meat grinder and pasta attachments, too. - Trish R
Pasta attachments are freaking awesome. Making little macaroni ftw - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Derrick
I started sorting laundry but then a house centipede (millipede?) ran across my pile of whites and now I'm cringing on top of the bed like a bitch.
I would pay to watch a show with you in it. - Akiva
That was awful. Jesus. - Derrick
The centipede is the one with the really long legs. - John (bird whisperer)
Did you sound like that guy on the Discover Card ad who doesn't like surprises as well? - That's So CAJ!
It did have long legs and it moved really fast! I took a swipe at it and think I got it (sorry, not sorry), but still. Ugh. - Derrick
They sometimes end up in my sink and can't get out. I have to steel myself to catch and release them. They eat lots of bad bugs like silverfish and roaches... But I understand! - Sarah from FreshFeed
Bugs, insects, spiders, and creatures of that ilk freak me out. I wish they didn't but... *shudders* - Derrick
You are so much like my son, it's funny. LOL. - Trish R
EEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWW - Yolanda

I picked up a six pack Friday night on my way in from the office. Very tasty. - Derrick
this one is really good - has blueberry in it :) - holly #ravingfangirl
Oh, I've had that one! What I picked up is aged in bourbon casks so it's all bourbon-y. - Derrick
i won't let myself buy any more until what we have is gone. I still have more bottles in the pantry. it is good yet bad that ciders have exploded in popularity here. - holly #ravingfangirl

I seriously don't know how I lived without it. I use it for everything now. I don't know why, but I am still surprised when I discover I can use it to do something new. - Mary Carmen
i'm still mad that my mom had one and gave it to someone else when she downsized. KitchenAid has a bonus right now to get the ice cream maker attachment for free too. my main issue? I don't know where i'd keep it. - holly #ravingfangirl
holly - that's the only reason I don't have one, too. They take up a lot of space. Having said that, I'm annoyed that my parents gave their old one to my brother since he doesn't cook or bake much. - Katy S
I sucked it up and dedicated counter space to it. I found I was using it way too much to keep taking it down from the top of the fridge. - Mary Carmen
i keep the one i have now on the top shelf of my pantry. ain't no way this would even fit. I think the only real place i could make space for it is away from where i do most of the cooking. i suppose it could work though. DAMN YOU, WOOT. this is such a good deal. - holly #ravingfangirl
When I moved from LA to NOLA, mine sat in the car in the front seat. O_o - Derrick

oh damn. Costco's coupons starting 4/10 have what looks like a comparable model for $60 off which could put it under $300. but it's a Costco-only version. hrm. - holly #ravingfangirl
no free ice cream maker though, cuz costco's coupon for it expired at the end of March. SUCH INDECISION. - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd love to have the ice cream maker. And the pasta attachment. - Trish R from iPhone
oh wait, the other coupon includes the costco model. though some reviews are saying there are issues finding attachments/accessories that fit it. GAH. i am going to go run and see how i feel about it then. maybe it will be sold out and i won't have to make a decision. lol - holly #ravingfangirl
OH GOOD GRIEF. i am still trying to decide. i'm gonna be sitting here with my finger on the trigger until 9:58 or until woot sells out. i think i have determined that what's different about this one is worth the $30 more than Costco's version. - holly #ravingfangirl
Girl, if you don't order that damn mixer... - Derrick
Those tall ones won't fit under my cabinets. I'm jealous of y'all who have have enough space for them. - Katy S
I wish I could use mine more often, but I don't have the counter-space to keep it out all the time, and it's so damned heavy that I never feel like dragging it out of the cupboard. I end up using a whisk or a small hand-mixer for 99% of my mixing needs. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
DO EEEEEEEET! - Prairie & I Know It from Android
The free ice cream maker is totally worth it! - Galadriel C. from Android
IT IS DONE. we'll see if i get the ice cream maker. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I admit I'm always surprised to find out that someone *doesn't* have a KitchenAid. I grew up with one and when I started planning for my first apartment, it was the very first thing I bought. And every time I've moved, it's ridden shotgun (with a seatbelt, natch). I finally replaced my original with a 7 quart professional model a couple years ago. Still the star of the kitchen. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I sometimes regret not having one. I grew up with one, too, and they're wonderful. For a very long time it was a space issue (I had a horrible tiny galley kitchen). Now I'm afraid I'd bake more than I already do. ;) - Katy S
I grew up with one but have never felt the need for my own, oddly. - laura x from iPhone
My mil has a 50yo one that works great. She gave me mine for a shower gift. Subsequent gifts included both pasta attachments and the meat grinder. :) I have a separate cuisinart ice cream maker with spare bowl - Christina Pikas from iPhone

$25 for a pint at a liquor store?!? Now, I know Eagle Rock has been gentrified, but I guess I've been living in denial about it being Downtown Hipsterville.
A pint of what? - Spidra Webster
Beer. Granted, it's craft beer, but still. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
That's like double the cost of a beer at a ball game. - Rodfather from Android
That's freakin' insane. Imported lambic is $10-13 for 750mL and I still don't buy it often because I guzzle lambic but sip wine. - Spidra Webster

How Privileged Are You? - Buzzfeed http://www.buzzfeed.com/regajha... - Oh, Buzzfeed *shakes head sadly*
OK, to be fair, it did make me think about just how fluid sexuality is—like it's not just cis/trans or heterosexual/LGBT. You don't need to actual identify with a certain orientation to be called slurs. You can be shamed for sexual practices (or lack of sexual practices) that don't necessarily conform/are limited to categorical orientations. - Victor Ganata
I got 40, mostly based on gender or sexuality. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Buzzfeed says I'm not privileged at all, which I find pretty ridiculous. Of course I'm privileged. - Laura
I'm "quite privileged" apparently. Whatever that means. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
LOL at trying to throw shade at Buzzfeed. It's *Buzzfeed*. - Derrick
It says I am not privileged, but white male here. - Friar Will
Yeah, I know it's Buzzfeed but I still totally thought "Surely you can't be serious" when I saw someone had posted this on FB :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I hear what you're saying, Derrick, but I've heard Bullfeed mentioned as a Source of Serious Modern Journalism (along with HuffPuff), which makes me cringe. That test: ditto. (My score is, of course, in the vast "privileged" range, since that clearly starts somewhere at or below 50 out of 100--that is, I scored 50. Yes, I consider myself reasonably privileged.) - Walt Crawford
I wonder if they weigh all those questions equally. I think some forms of privilege are probably more significant than others. - John (bird whisperer)
I think the idea of quantifying privilege is prima facie ridiculous, but I guess we live in the age of the quantified self. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I found myself not sure of some of my answers. Sometimes I've felt uncomfortable about who I am, but I think that was me facing my privilege rather than not having it. My freshman year of college almost all my friends were Asian, so I was "the white girl" and left out of things, but I wouldn't say that was lack of privilege at all. - Heather
I didn't bother because, well, I'm aware of whatever privilege I might have, but am also painfully aware of what that might look like when I'm in the elevator or people who look different from me pass up that open seat on the bus because...well, I'm sure it's not privilege. And also, I just really hate Buzzfeed. - Derrick
I'm increasingly with you (Derrick) on that last count, which is why I ignored this the first five times I saw it. - Walt Crawford
Derrick

"On a recent cloudless afternoon, a group of young comedy writers — one in Ray-Bans and a floppy wizard hat, another in skateboard sneakers and funky jeans — descended upon San Diego State University’s palm-tree-dotted campus, brandishing copies of their latest creation: a 12-page broadsheet of lewd humor. It was distribution day, or Distro, and staff members of The Koala, California’s most reviled student publication, had 8,000 copies to hand out. “Come and get it, you know you want it,” thundered Erik Luchsinger, a 21-year-old management major, in Hawaiian swim trunks, tank top and bow tie. “All the cool kids are reading it!” bellowed Taylor Etchart, a senior foods and nutrition major. “Guaranteed to be funnier than your textbook!” another staff writer shouted as students whizzed by on skateboards and bicycles. The cover featured an orgy of naked women with koala heads, clutching beer bottles, injecting illicit substances and vomiting. Inside was a list of “Top 5 Ways to Pick Up a... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Despite all this, The Koala seems to be flourishing. It has recouped its lost advertising dollars, and revenues are up by more than 100 percent from fall 2012 (the editorial staff is not paid). For the first time, staff members are trying to sell subscriptions to graduating seniors, to foster an alumni base, and there is a beefed-up online presence. Koala coffee cups, stickers and... more... - Jessie
"TO BETTER UNDERSTAND what’s so funny about The Koala, I joined the staff at one of its Sunday night meetings, in a cluttered one-bedroom apartment on the edge of the San Diego State campus. Sitting on a shag rug beneath a framed poster of the “Seinfeld” character Kramer, and between bites of guava cookies supplied by Mr. Luchsinger’s mother, students reviewed their last issue, which... more... - Jessie
"The Koala is not the only publication to mine edgy terrain. A subgroup of campus publications — The Quinnipiac Barnacle, The Medium at Rutgers and The Texas Travesty at the University of Texas, Austin — delight in routinely touching humor’s third rail.
