My sister says it's lavender and copper. I told her that's not one of the choices. #TheDress #blueandblack
White and gold. I want to get this dress and then wear it to a party ten years from now. - laura x from iPhone
i saw lavender and copper, too - Christina Pikas
Interesting. - Meg VMeg
Sooooo tiredddddzzzz
Treated myself to a lovely ham and cheese sandwich for supper after a stressful day. #noreally
Has "scents inspired by nature" eh? #sideeye
that...could be a lot of scents. - ellbeecee
rotting dead roadside opossum? stagnant forest pool? bobcat urine? - Big Joe Silence

Clearing today's task list primarily by moving things to tomorrow's task list. No way this can go wrong.
You know what's weird? Having front teeth that touch. For the first time in my life. #braces
Dear Brain, please brain. Thanks.
Sunday evening reference shift. Let's do this thing.
Inbox Zero! - lris
According to this genetic testing, I’ve probably been dead for quite some time already, I’m currently insane, and later I’ll lose my memory.
Sooooooooo...how's it going? - Meg VMeg
I might not be in the best position to answer that question, considering my insanity. And being dead. - lris
you can tell us aaaaaaaaall about the afterlife then - RepoRat
Well, it's like this, you see.... - lris
Where we normally keep toner and printer maintenance kits and such, now there are… pillows. #liberalartsstorage http://t.co/OhMKIct5PE

PC LOAD PILLOW - Spidra Webster
Meanwhile, someone's loading toner cartridges into their pillowcases. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
And print jobs are coming out all covered in fluff. - lris
Well NOW I'm awake. Thank you so much, false carbon monoxide alarm. #freakedout
Ugh. *hands over soothing mug of something warm* - Kirsten from Android
ow. feeling better at least? - MoTO Boychick Devil
Yes, I'm doing better. Not 100% yet but definitely improving. - lris from Android
Yikes. Glad it was a false alarm, but what a dreadful way to wake up. - Marianne
My landlord is going to have the furnace man come check things out. Whew. - lris
ugh. I need to figure out where to put mine. - Rachel Walden
I kind of figure that "anywhere" is better than "not plugged in." - Catherine Pellegrino
Although if it's not plugged in, then you don't get false alarms! #lauraxlogic - laura x
You have plugin CO alarms? (Having been woken up, but slowly, by the periodic "battery running down" beeps on ours last Friday.) - Walt Crawford
I've got two (one my mom gave me when I moved in, and another came with my furnace) and they're both plugin with a battery backup. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yeah, mine are plugged into a regular socket, too. They're kind of a pain because they're huge and if you knock it out of the socket it screams bloody murder. - lris
So TIL that there are such things as plug-in carbon monoxide alarms. - Walt Crawford
Mine is battery with screws for the wall, and we're renting. - Rachel Walden
Thursdaybrarian: In which we learn whether Iris can stay awake for >12 hours at work.
Gah! - Meg VMeg
"Please email me off-line" is one of the ways that buzzwordifying "off-line" can really backfire in practical communication.
I almost used something very like that formulation in an email this morning, and stopped myself because...yeah. - Catherine Pellegrino
Oh Catherine... ooooh Catherine. - lris
*waggles eyebrows* - Catherine Pellegrino
I usually use "out-of-band" for that, which is its own flavor of anachronistic but seems to mostly work. - RepoRat
I usually use "off list" or "privately" if I mean "not replying to the whole email list" or "after the meeting" if I mean "not during our meeting." :) - lris
Ok, I'm moving my life into Asana. What's your favorite Asana trick?
It's on my list of things to investigate, so I will eavesdrop on your updates. ;) - kaijsa
so far I'm really liking it - lris
I plan on trying a crazy thing: not checking off "dishes" and "laundry" until the clean stuff is put away. For science. Will report back.
whoa. - Marianne
This seems unnecessarily harsh. In my world, it would end in nothing ever getting checked off, because there are weeks where I empty the hamper out moments before I grab the freeform pile off the bathroom floor to put back into the hamper so I can carry it to the laundromat. The dishes are a similar situation many days. I wish you luck in this, though! - WebGoddess
Precisely. - lris
Washing dishes and putting them away are 2 different tasks, in my book. And washing/drying laundry, folding it, and putting it away are 3 tasks. - April Russo
I started doing this at the beginning of the year (per UfYH) and it's been pretty amazing, honestly. I don't know how but I have 'zero laundry debt' and dishes and laundry are always promptly put away just because I don't let myself off the hook to do it later (I don't have to go to a laundromat, though; when I did I doubt I could stick with this). I find that not procrastinating makes the task much less daunting. - joey
If I had a working washer & dryer inside my apartment, I would probably take my clothes off and toss them directly into the washer, doing a load of laundry, daily. Unfortunately, I have to push a cart 2 miles, instead. (my dislike for doing that is why I hand wash most of my clothing, soaking them while I am in the shower) - April Russo
Yeah, I had a pretty steep prioritization for when I had to carry things far offsite. I am very grateful to not have to do that in my current apartment. - joey
What is this "folding" whereof you speak? I did six loads of laundry at the laundromat today (I live it up on national holidays). I have a washer and dryer, but my basement drain isn't draining at present. - laura x from iPhone
Experiment results: the house is vastly more functional and the system seems ideal in every way. Such is the nature of utopias. - lris
Grumpy
:( *hugs* and I've got two cats that want to snuggle if ya wanna borrow them. - Sir Shuping is just sir
You know what's more fun than doing your work? Organizing your work. #todolistsforever
My To-Do list is an Excel spreadsheet with eleven columns, seven tabs,and a pile of macrons for moving things from one tab to another and sorting them based on a complicated algorithm to work out what I should be focusing on next. It's a thing of amazingness created over several years of procrastination. - Deborah Fitchett
wow... - lris
I like teuxdeux online. I have my stuffs PLUS stuffs for my student workers to deux. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
All out avoiding it is even more better. - MoTO Boychick Devil
dang. Deborah wins. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Or loses. I'm not quite sure which. - lris
Very jealous of Deborah and her spreadsheet - I am crazy busy with projects but because I don't track them carefully, it's more difficult to explain to people why I'm busy. - Jen
I have some things written on scraps of paper.... - laura x
deborah o_O man....i finally got semiorganized with a gdoc where i keep most things and an email for other things. and some scraps of paper somewhere. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Laurax, I have things I can't read/interpret written on scraps of paper. - Prairie & I Know It
Home today to make up for working yesterday. Coffee, cat, and book time now while the snow falls. Cinnamon rolls a bit later. #winning
Sounds great. One question: are your cinnamon rolls frosting-heavy (like Cinnabons), frosting-light, or unfrosted (what Safeway here calls "morning buns," apparently)? Purely idle interest... - Walt Crawford
I made them and will put a little frosting on when they cool a bit. House smells goooood. (I can't buy bakery ones because I'm allergic to eggs.) - lris from Android
"A little frosting" sounds great. Hope you enjoy them. - Walt Crawford
Mmmm so gooood. - lris from Android
I'll be right over. - Catherine Pellegrino
out of curiosity, what do you use for egg replacer in this recipe? or do you have a link to the recipe? - RepoRat
I have two options: bake using this tried-and-true egg replacer http://www.ener-g.com/egg-rep... (works on nearly everything, but not brownies), or buy the cheater kind that comes in the pop tubes that freak the cat out like nobody's business (there's nothing as real as an egg in those). This morning I went for the instant gratification cheater kind. - lris
thanks! I use ener-g in a lot of things also (not allergic; dealing with cardiovascular stuff). - RepoRat
Stuff's amazing. - lris
Just ate a cinnamon roll myself. Mmmm... - Corinne L
On the one hand: $10/month smart phone = YAY. On the other hand: regularly having to reinstall the OS = sigh. #republicwireless
that's who I'm using! I haven't had to reinstall the OS though...lots of updates, but otherwise it's been fairly stable. what troubles is it giving you? - Sir Shuping is just sir
pretty regularly it says thinks like "Unfortunately, messaging has stopped." Or "Unfortunately, [something else vital to the core inner workings] has stopped." And then I have to uninstall the Republic Wireless app, reboot, and reinstall. - lris
It's not enough of a hassle to make me move to a more expensive plan, but it's a hassle. And since my whole family is on RW, we can tell when one person has had this happen because either they show up as some weird phone number that isn't theirs or all their texts get delivered at once when they realize something's wrong and do the uninstall/reinstall routine. - lris
Our ITS dept recently adopted Asana for project management. I'm considering this for my own work. Anyone out there have experience? Like it? Hate it? Tips?
My students tend to prefer Trello, but I've had groups adopt Asana. - RepoRat
Sundaybrarian, checking in.
Sunday Librarian Lab Leader check in. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
5-9 EST Sundaybrarian, reporting for duty! - Catherine Pellegrino
4-6 chat shift almost done. 1 email question, 1 live question. 12ish minutes until the 6-8 person shows. - ellbeecee
I just got my first actual question of the evening. Holy moly, ebooks are hard to browse. #PreachingToTheChoir - Catherine Pellegrino
Working on a Sunday means that the rate of outgoing email exceeds the rate of incoming email. Woo!
The one down side of yesterday's 6-hour visit with my family (via video-chat) was watching them make and eat birthday sushi with my brother.
Walking to and from work just a couple days after being ill? Apparently a very bad idea. Sigh.
:( *hugs* you going to be ok? - Sir Shuping is just sir
urgh. *hugs you* - Marianne
Student: "Does the library have a typewriter?" Me: "OH WOW YES! Sorry, nobody's ever asked me that before."
Poor Iris. Feel better soon. - MoTO Boychick Devil
*hugs* hope you feel better soon - Sir Shuping is just sir
He does a good job. Sorry things are so very rough right now. *hugs* - Marianne
I'm glad you have him! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
nursekitty looks like he's serving well. Sorry you're feeling so icky :( - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
*tucks in blanket* - Kirsten
Sick sicker sickest. #nursekitty is on duty.
Hope you feel better soon. - Kirsten
yay for #NurseKitty. Feel better soon - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Getting an affidavit notarized, as one does. #teamharpy
OK, so I've been obsessed with teeth lately. But now I know why celebrities all have the same teeth: http://www.arizonafamilydental.com/blog...
Watching Grey's Anatomy, I'm now suspicious of all these beautiful people who have large and weirdly perfect teeth. Plus near-lisps. - lris
After all my dental woes I am acutely aware of teeth. - Janet from FFHound!
Teeth are freaky! (I currently have braces because I'm destroying mine too quickly. Hence my obsession.) - lris
My teeth must be considered crazy, because I only saw a gap with Zac Efron and I don't think George Cloony had anything wrong. - Heather
EXACTLY. I'm utterly baffled. And weirded out. - lris
At least my ortho doc won't be able to change more than position. *shudder* - lris
One of my favorite things: ham and cheese sandwiches. #dontjudge
What is your preferred cheese? - Prairie & I Know It from Android
Since Laura just beat me to it... what type of ham? - Julian
Nothing fancy, just medium cheddar and black forest ham. - lris
(I also use whole wheat bread, eggless mayo because of the egg allergies, and baby spinach because of the lettuce allergy, and pickles if I have them.) - lris
Yum. - Joe
Sounds good to me. - Catherine Pellegrino
Leave out the pickles on mine, please. - laura x from iPhone
sounds good, more for me! - lris
Sounds good to me. Even better if it's grilled. - John (bird whisperer)
Tell me about techniques for that... - lris
Yes, I am also very much a fan of the grilled ham and cheese, especially with Swiss. - laura x from iPhone
Sadly, I've never been able to make friends with Swiss. - lris
