I forgot to cross-post to my main feed, but over in LSW I am muttering to myself in true crazy-cat lady librarian fashion if anybody is feeling like pointing and laughing ... http://friendfeed.com/lsw...
It just boggles my mind how short-sighted government agencies can be. The project I used to work with had built up tremendous traffic on various domains and the feds let most of them go, to be snapped up by unscrupulous advertisers and such.
A butterfly just landed on my wrist while I was reading outside and stayed there kissing on me for almost two minutes before it flew away. So ticklish! And why did it take so long to figure out I'm not a flower? Cute though.
Because my landlord didn't paint the house, the housing authority will stop paying its portion of my rent & they're issuing me a voucher to find another place. We have 90 days. I still have to pay my portion of the rent. I can't afford to move or to hire help, my credit is awful, and hardly anyone will rent to someone on section 8 who has dogs.
work situation is messing with my mind. update yesterday was they're waiting on some funding to come through that if it does in time then I won't be laid off (oh, oops, ha, jk). >:\ today I was told to meet with HR and move forward as if I will be laid off. oh, but there will likely be contract money for me to finish my current projects...
We've just been told that our campus website platform is moving to Drupal. I'm looking for some libraries who use this for their sites so we can see examples of what we can do. Any pros/cons/FYIs would also be appreciated.
first and foremost I love making connections... introducing people for mutual benefit, finding the solution to a problem, linking a need with a resource, that's what really floats my boat. doing it for a cause or mission I care about is icing.
I went on a Middle East peace tour in 1984 which included Syria and Jordan, and the secret basement office of a militant Palestinian faction. We were not able to visit Lebanon, though, as it was too dangerous at the time. #saturdayff
