Pippin is Not Amused. - Catherine Pellegrino
Not the least little bit - lris from Android
Today I am a book in library binding: head-to-toe monochrome, plus a check-out-slip name tag.

"Do not take Farxiga if you are allergic to Farxiga or any of its ingredients." Thanks for that sage advice, big pharma.
the brand name and the chemical name are both quite difficult to imagine pronouncing - dapagliflozin is the drug name. - ellbeecee
I think it's named after a character in Babylon 5 - WarLord
"Additionally, if you develop allergic reactions to Farxiga after you have begun taking Farxiga, cease taking Farxiga. Furthermore, if you phase shift so that you are no longer able to take Farxiga in this plane of existence, consult your doctor before gradually reducing your Farxiga dosage." - Stephen Mack
"So what you're telling me is that Google is magic and I just don't have the spell book." #wisewords #studentsaresmart

Ecstatic Porcupine = excellent band name - Steve C Team Marina
I love that porcupines sound like Cousin Itt. - bentley
Appearances are deceptive, but Teddy's nose looks very pettable. - RepoRat
He does a very good job of looking fluffy rather than pokey. - lris
Duncan is looking for him. No porcupine in here, buddy - maʀtha
Lance has figured out that the computer is trying to troll him; he just gives a Big Lancelot Sigh. Didi will occasionally respond to kitten noises, but little else. - RepoRat
your password must contain one letter, one number, one impressionist painting, and one mathematical theorem.
And one emoji for good measure. 🐪 - Julian
✔🐴🔋 (gah... no staple) - Julian
and one of these: #%$&^()!!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
And no repeat passwords! (actually got caught on one of those today) - Julian
Sometimes "tidying" means "put things in the right general room of the house, or at least one room closer to the right room."
moving it closer to where it belongs DEFINITELY counts. - Lnorigb
I did a lot of that today. Kitchen looks much better, as does living room. bedroom...has a lot of shoes sitting out. - ellbeecee
that's all I seem to be able to ever do. One day rooms will actually look like I imagine they will...that day will probably come right before I move out. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Someday I want to take a whole day off work just to tidy, straighten, do all the things where everytime I see one particular thing I think "oh yeah, I need to do that thing..." On second thought, I'd better plan for a week. - Catherine Pellegrino
I assume that if I move something from the floor to a different horizontal surface I have tidied. - laura x from iPhone
Exactly what Laura said. - Yolanda from Android
I have baskets. I put the things that are on floors, surfaces, sofas, etc, in the baskets, on the theory that eventually i will have to empty the baskets because they are full and thus things will get put away. But, um, I have a lot of baskets. - Jenica
Well THAT email only took 4 hours to write. Whew.
I don't know which is worse, complex copyright scenarios or figuring out new health insurance options. This afternoon was chalk full of both.
I would rather do teh Copyright questions - Insurance is sufficiently advanced as to be magic to me - Aaron the Librarian
Not "chock full"? - LB: Water Witch from Android
That too. - lris from Android

And now for a little light reading: the Berne Convention. #sendhelp #sendcoffee
My brain feels like jello. Of course, that could be from trying to read court opinions. #IANAL
if you're talking about the GSU decision, yeah, the first one was easier to read despite being immensely longer. - RepoRat
Yeah. And that one also felt like it was working towards helping libraries make good choices for themselves. This one feels a lot less like that. - lris
It's also just a very different rhetorical style to go along and go along as if you're arguing one way, and then at the last minute say "see? That doesn't actually make a lot of sense." There seems to be a lot of bait-n-switch. - lris
yes, I definitely noticed that too. I nearly blew my stack a couple times before the reveal came! - RepoRat
Looks like I get a chance to blow my stack at this concurring opinion, though. Yeow. - lris
inorite?! talk about your dodged bullets. - RepoRat
As RepoRat knows, this one made me miss Harold Baer's opinion-writing verve. - Jennifer Howard
Ranganathan bless those of you who actually read this stuff and then explain it to the rest of us. - Steele Lawman
^this - maʀtha
Being a litigating copyright holder must feel like playing whack-a-mole these days. Whack away, get frantic, but never wonder if the moles are actually a problem.

Forget co-pilot. Coffee has the wheel.
*fistbump* - Catherine Pellegrino
Leaves rustling, light filtering yellow through the fall leaves. Might be my last evening #undermytree
Fall has been so perfect this year. Of course, we totally deserve it :) - Jen
First there was the microwave. Then there was the iPad. Now there is unlimited texting. #gamechangingtech #yesimbehingthetimes #stoplaughing
Pretty big gap there between the microwave and the iPad, my friend. :D - laura x
Not such a big gap in my own life. :) - lris
Well, we got a microwave in 1979, and I got my own in 2006, but I didn't get unlimited texting till a couple years ago, and I STILL don't have an iPad. :D - laura x
So, Prima Facie is the highest ranking facie, right? Like Prima Donna? No? *rereads*
This fall is beautiful
2014-10-20 11.29.23.jpg
It is. The leafpeeping just in my neighborhood is pretty sweet right now. - RepoRat
We are getting some absolutely beautiful colors over here, as well. - Catherine Pellegrino
Midterm Break day at Carleton. Or as it's known around here Comps Research Organization Workshop Day. Wheeee
It's 8am and I've already spilled coffee on myself. Twice.
Happy Monday! - WebGoddess

Ambulance pulling up across the street. Hope everything's OK. :-/
Looks like not so much OK. - lris from Android
At least they're driving away without lights and sirens. - lris from Android
Made stove top popcorn for the first time. The cat is not a fan.
it tastes really good that way. I like to toss some sugar on it too, as a poor person's kettle corn. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

YES, I AM PROTECTING MY LIVER! - Zamms
*pours us all another mug* - lris from Android
I shall make coffee right away. - Stephan from iPhone
Wonderful news - pouring another cup - Jen
I don't care about the news. I am drinking as much coffee as I like until they pry it from my cold dead hands. - laura x from iPhone
I shall go make some right now! - Corinne L
Second pot being brewed. No sense in holding back. - Stephan from iPhone
This friend has a message that speaks to my condition. - Catherine Pellegrino
Ha! My new phone will automatically set itself to vibrate-only while I'm in meetings. It's like magic.
Is that an Android feature or an app? That sounds amazing. - Jen
There was an app called "Assist" pre-loaded on my phone. I set it to silence during the night and vibrate during meetings. - lris from Android
... how does it know you're in a meeting? - Catherine Pellegrino
It looks at your calendar. I use an app called llama that does things bad on time or location. So my phone is always on vibrate when I'm at work or late at night (but only when I'm at home). - DJF from Android
my calendar has a check box for "do not disturb" mode that will do the same thing (android) i also use the Sound Manager app to make my phone quieter during work hours and overnight - ~Courtney F
do anybody no if this can be done on the other kind of phone? the one that starts with an i? - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
SilentAlarm and AutoSilent for IOS - but neither is a free app. - Jen
My whole family is getting used to our new smartphones. "Have you figured out how to...?"
Tomorrow my number ports over. Then life really begins. - lris from Android
Sure, my whole house shakes when you drive by and that's annoying. But you'll go deaf early and that'll be way more annoying. #getoffmylawn
