We brought cereal bowls for popcorn so everyone can butter their own. I was apparently too enthusiastic last week.

He's right! ISN'T IT THE BEST??? - Meg VMeg
It totally is. I grew up on candlepin bowling which had the same rules, but less adorable pins! - Zamms from iPhone
OMG, I MISS CANDLEPIN SO MUCH. Duck pin fills the gap nicely. - Zamms
RT @4shish: After I drink my coffee at work I show my empty mug to the IT guy and tell him I've successfully installed Java. He hates me.
Like the software, it constantly needs updates. - John (bird whisperer)

Man, I wish I'd known this joke when I was working in offices :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Totally tangential, but that never stops me: When I was a consultant doing transportation planning and engineering on projects in Michigan, I made a presentation to the Michigan Transportation Modeling User Group. When I finished talking about the travel demand forecasting models we were using, they presented me with a coffee mug (empty, of course) with the word "MTMUG" on the side. Which is the acronym for the name of their group. (Like I said, totally tangential.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Wow, that's... kind of lightyears ahead of a lot of 'modern' library guides that are lists of links and blocks of text. It's got pictures and it's to the point and everything. - Deborah Fitchett
I love how the vertical file bit reminds us that "kids will find and cite all kinds of crap for their research papers" is not exactly a new phenomenon. - Catherine Pellegrino

Oh, I adore melted peanut butter. I'd rather have that on ice cream than hot fudge! - Zamms

That guy who stands in front of the CVS with the cardboard poster saying "CVS SELLS DEATH" is going to have a massive ego now.
About to start drafting examples of "information literate assignments" for teaching resources page. Do you have any you're willing to share?
this has some we recommend to our faculty: - ~Courtney F
feel free to use anything from this workshop handout (a Word doc) - barbara fister
This handout (Word doc) was used in a faculty development workshop at MPOW recently: - Catherine Pellegrino
^^^ those are awesome! - barbara fister
Catherine, those are fantastic! Thanks all! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Now to cull and shape. Cull and shape! A good, usable libguide tab will come from all this wonderful, it truly will! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
We're working on something similar. I have various materials from workshops, but our instruction coordinator is working on a libguide, which will be much nicer. My eye is on this space, too! - kaijsa
I would like to copy several/all of the ones Catherine posted for our website, but I'm not sure how to give attribution... just say they are from Saint Mary's? although I'm not sure from what you said that they are actually from SM... - JffKrlsn
Hi JffKrlsn - the handout I linked above is mostly my own work (I think there's one in there that I cribbed from someplace else and incompletely cited) and you (or anybody else) are welcome to use, copy, transform, mutilate, or otherwise muck about with it however you want, with or without attribution. Good pedagogy wants to be free. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
Oh, terrific! This is an old thread, glad I was able to find it. Those assignments are great. - JffKrlsn
You can see how our instruction librarian referenced our handout at (the handout is at the bottom) - Rebecca Hedreen
Feel free to use any of this document that might be useful - - barbara fister
It is 10:37 and I just finished lunch because my morning has been so bonkers I had no idea it wasn't lunchtime.

4.3 miles, one epic diaper blowout, a change of clothes and a bottle later we are happy, happy, happy. Maybe I can sneak in a shower.

It's amazing how this child got none of my genetics. She is mini-Scott. Although, to quote my dad, "As soon as she opens her mouth and speaks, it will be obvious she is your child." - Mary Carmen
Epic diaper blowouts... how I remember those. And the impeccable timing that they invariably demonstrated. Driving through the rolling hills on I-35 near Rolla, Missouri. Me in the rented moving truck holdling all of our worldly posessions, my wife driving our car with infant son in his car seat. Suddenly she pulls over to the side of the road, and I quickly maneuver the cumbersome... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
