You can do it! But resting is also allowed. - Marianne

Tell him hello from me, would you? - MoTO Boychick Devil from Android
My cat is very, very bad at hiding. He thinks if he crouches down and mews at me pathetically I won't be able to see him.
Periodically he comes over for comforting pets. - lris
Sounds like my child, who likes to say, "I'm hiding!" loudly, while in plain sight. - laura x from iPhone
As long as everyone knows, then it is true. - lris
I don't see why willing suspension of disbelief shouldn't apply to toddlers and cats. - Catherine Pellegrino
"But who comes here? I am invisible; And I will overhear their conference." - laura x
Finalized, printed HUNDREDS of pages, and made them into neat little packets for our ACRL workshop participants today.

I will be doing that after the workshop. :) - lris
My fish's thermostat went haywire. My fish is cooked. What a way to go.
Oh no! RIP little guy. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Oh, that's awful. Poor fish. - Catherine Pellegrino
Doh. =( - rønin

I'm sorry we got a new thermostat for new holder tank when we got baby eels. They got cooked by it. :( Never went back to that store again. - Steve C, Team Marina
Oh, that's terrible. I'm sorry. - Marie
I'm so sorry, Iris. :( - LB needs a vacation

If I wasn’t wearing my fitbit, did I move at all today?
*posts photo of a fitbit strapped to a tree* - Big Joe Silenced
I *hate* when I forget my FitBit. It's like all that movement doesn't count. - Catherine Pellegrino
Last week I stopped running after a couple laps and started again because my running app wasn't turned on. If you're asking yourself what the heck is wrong with me, it's okay :) - Jen
It’s not every day that I receive good news, experience 2 instances of extreme generosity, and get a lot done at work. Banner day.
💯 - Julian
Also, incredibly tiring day. - lris
Iris, you sent that down here, didn't you? HAVE YOU NO SHAME? - Catherine Pellegrino
Seriously, I'd had enough. - lris
We've got it today. - bentley
We had some snow Friday/Saturday, but not that much. You can keep it, though. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Backyard Swing Set: Pros and Cons comment thread
Pros as I see them (please join in): 2 nephews will think I'm the Coolest Aunt Ever - lris
Cons as I see them: mowing... what a pain. - lris
assembly is generally a major hassle and don't get a wooden one.cos even the treated material rot within 5 or so years. metal or nothing. that said, they're hugely fun for the kids. - Big Joe Silenced
Depending on what they're made of, dilapidating. Then having to find a sustainable way of getting rid of them. - Spidra Webster
Knowing nothing about the subject... are they adaptable as the kids get older? - bentley
You gotta watch the little kids around them, especially if it has one of those gliders. - Ken Morley
Pros: you are swinging! - Todd Hoff
decent metal ones that are correctly (deeply) anchored to the ground are usually pretty durable. - Big Joe Silenced
Here is a picture of the metal set. https://www.dropbox.com/s... I'm working on buying this property and deciding whether to ask the owners to take the set with them or leave it for me. - lris
We built a wooden one; when it was time, freecyled it to another family. It was fabulous. I'd say go for it. - Jen
If the owners want to take it with them, I'd say let them because then you don't have to worry about removal/disposal. If the owners don't want it, I'd keep it and get a few years of fun out of it with the nephews before it gets too unstable to be safe (assuming it isn't at that stage already). - Catherine Pellegrino
I am late to comment, and you got useful advice from your friends. I don't want one in my yard because A) mowing, and B) I like the idea of community parks. Especially since you live so close to the parks, I don't think lack of a backyard set would be a problem. And the number of days that we are at your house each year in good weather are pretty few. But I'm sure they would have a blast with it, if you decide/have decided to keep it. I remember some good times on the Kammraths' set when we were little. - Heidi Bee
My current plan is to say yes if the sellers ask to take it but have it around for a few years if they leave it. :-) - lris from Android
My love affair with Asana continues. #listylists
It’s snowing hard…
It's so mesmerizing, I'm having a hard time motivating today. - Jen
huh. not here yet - maʀtha
we dodged that bullet. how much did you get? - MoTO Boychick Devil
There's about an inch on the ground. It's been snowing all day but the ground was pretty warm to begin with and the temp is above freezing now, so I'm not expecting a whole lot more accumulation. But I guess I won't know till it's done! - lris
Never go up against a lawyer who's the protagonist in a legal drama.
(Very paraphrased.) Someone asked Raymond Burr how come he (Perry Mason) never lost a case. He replied, "You only see the ones that were tried on Tuesdays." Barbara Hale said something similar in an interview. http://www.npr.org/templat... - bentley
Did anyone keep the receipt for this spring? I think this one’s defective. #snow
Every time I try to concentrate on something else, I end up concentrating on this whole house-buying project instead.
It's snowing....
Thank goodness for audiobooks, knitting, and coffee. #saturday

Your survey has "Two questions?" I give laser eyes cuz each "question" is a 25-item likert-scaled "how important is this to you" thing.
is it a 2 part 25-item scaled thing - how important is it AND are we meeting your expectations in each of those 25 items? which are repeated in various different ways so we can ensure data validity? - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
of course - lris
And of these millions of things, which are the 11 most important - lris
The cat waited until final post-inspection negotiations were complete. Then he left one, single turd in the bathtub as his commentary on my house-buying plans. How did he know??
He's a cat. They know everything. Thank Gaia they don't have opposable thumbs. - walt crawford
What he said. Dear God. If the cats in this house had opposable thumbs, I would just give up. - laura x from iPhone
Congrats? - Meg VMeg
There are two ways to take this message. 1) "I protest the fact that we will be moving." 2) "I curse you and your plans." I sure hope it's the first option... - lris from Android
I, um, don't see why it can't mean both. (Sorry, Iris!) - Catherine Pellegrino

Oh goodness. Do I really leave for ACRL NEXT WEEK????? #panic

Sad. A professor at my institution died suddenly yesterday. He was one of those people who brought quiet joy into every room he entered.
