#toddlerx update: Ear tube insertion and adenoid removal went fine. He is a little woozy and pukey from the anesthesia, but now he's alseep on my lap and I'm rereading In the Beginning Was the Command Line.
Best wishes to you and #toddlerx. Hope he's through the worst of it. - Catherine Pellegrino
Speedy recovery wishes - Steve C Team Marina

Using cherry picked religious verses to show how ridiculous another cherry picked religious verse fueled argument is can be fun but it's mostly just saddening.

If you don't dance when Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' comes on, you might be a little bit dead inside.
Behind the Tutu - The Ballet Bag -
Behind the Tutu - The Ballet Bag
Behind the Tutu - The Ballet Bag
Show all
"Tutus can have a life of over 20 years, meaning that several generations of dancers will wear the same tutu, even if the layers of net are often replaced. There is both honour and superstition in wearing such a garment, and the names of all previous wearers are left inside the bodice when possible. The first thing a dancer will normally do at a costume fitting, is to look inside the costume to see who (perhaps a now famous dancer) had worn it before them. It often surprises people that ballet costumes are not remade for each dancer, but the style of construction means that these costumes are expected to have a life of 20-30 years and are made to allow alterations for each new cast. Principal dancers in a performance will normally have their own tutus, but others will have to share a costume with up to four other dancers for the run of a show. Next time you are at the ballet, take your opera glasses and you will get a glimpse of the rows and rows of bars down the back of the costume to accommodate each dancer, as in the image below." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"A completed tutu takes approximately 120 hours to ‘build’ and often involves 3 or 4 different makers, each responsible for a separate element. Next time you go to the ballet and you admire the ballerina’s tutu, stop and think that behind this beautiful dreamlike figure is the sum of: up to 6 different makers, hundreds of hours of work, thousands of pounds, many meters of tulle and countless stitches!" - Jessie
Maybe if I drink one more cup of coffee the temp will rise 30 degrees and melt the snow and then I won’t have to shovel. #denial

Google Scholar pioneer on search engine’s future via @instapaper
Google Scholar pioneer on search engine’s future via @instapaper
1) "We crawl the whole web, and for a new blog, for example, you see what the connections are to the rest of scholarship that you already know about" I have never EVER seen a blog in Scholar. 2) "One big difference was that we were relevance-ranking [sorting results by relevance to the user’s request], which scholarly search services had not done previously." Is this really true? No... more... - Meg VMeg
Also, I love Google Scholar. I have no idea why this makes me so angry. Maybe it's his expression in the photo. - Meg VMeg
He seems a little out of touch with what library services this is competing against. - Joe
I met Anurag Acharya years ago at an SFX conf (before it was ELUNA) - he was great & eager to work with librarians / libraries. I get a different vibe from this article, but it is interesting. when I tweeted it, I ps'd: use the library. :-/. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Home safe after driving through crazy icy snowy weather to Bastille concert. Concert was amazing.
1) I almost never go to arena concerts, everyone was superkind and respectful, and thousands of people all enjoying the same damn things is amazing. - Marianne
2) OMG WHEN DAN SMITH DID HIS RUN AROUND THE AUDIENCE THING I ENDED UP THREE FEET AWAY FROM HIM *FACING HIM* WITH NO ONE IN THE WAY IN A POGOING CIRCLE FOR LIKE 20 SECONDS MY BRAIN EXPLODED AND HAS DECIDED THE ENTIRE NIGHT IS A DREAM BUT IT TOTALLY WASN'T *deep inhale* It was pretty grand. And the friend / almost-graduated student worker I took with me totally caught the Bastille obsession virus, so I feel like I have done my part in passing it along after I was infected with it last year :D. - Marianne

I wonder if my mom will kill me for tonight's FB post????
Did you not tell her prior to posting? - Corinne L
Oh, no, she knows. She just is old-fashioned. Like you should wait three months or whatnot. - Mary Carmen
My mom was that way too. - Corinne L
It's your choice and she will just have to deal with it. Fwiw, my mom feels the same way as your mom, but I think that's primarily because of our family medical history. Or, she's just old-fashioned. Regardless, it's all up to you. - Katy S
The funny thing about waiting until 3 months. If the embryo/fetus fails to progress it is usually by 8-9 weeks. It just takes the body that extra 3-4 weeks to finally figure it out (bleeding to express the sac). Anecdotal stuff from scanning pregnant ladies for 32 years. - Janet
Not on fb... Congrats?!?!! - Christina Pikas from iPhone

Aw, are you preggy again? Yay! Congrats! Exciting! (Unless you're not and I'm totally misreading this...) - Laura Krier

My dad is delivering the sermon at his church today in San Antonio. Nervous, excited for him. He should be starting the service soon. *sits on hands*
Did I know you're a PK, too? - Holly's favorite Anna
He's not a P. He's delivering a special sermon, in honor of Veteran's Day. He's telling the story about a guy he assisted in the burn unit when he returned from the front (Vietnam) with severe burns, lost limbs. This guy has gone on to do amazing things with his life and recently reconnected with my dad, his occupational therapist in the burn unit. The guy will be in attendance. I wish I could be there to see it. - Marie
Oh wow. I wish I could, too. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
He and Bobby ("the guy") got a standing ovation. He's so pleased and very tired. :D - Marie

Talking to my dad about his old cars. He had a 1960 ford. A buddy had a similar one WITH A RECORD PLAYER in it. Dad: "it skipped a lot."
