I am fluent in English and a few of its dialects: Librarian, cultural critic, academic, friendfeeder, and kitten cam.
do you speak bunnehese as well? - Sir Shuping is just sir
tinee tabbies! - RepoRat
Saturdaybrarian reporting for duty: special First Day of Finals edition.
At least this mind-numbing work project can be done at home while watching tv, snuggling the cat, and sipping libations.
This makes me curious about the libations. - Julian
Balvenie DoubleWood. Mmmmmm - lris
Side comment: not trying to sound pedantic! Just like Brian Cox naming scotches. - Zamms
*ignores Zamms* - lris
It's for the best. - Zamms
one should never ignore zamms. ignoring zamms could lead to destruction. - Sir Shuping is just sir
This is a very confused new mama kitty. "What in the world am I to do with all these little things?" https://new.livestream.com/tinykit...

Pretty sure I'd be weirded out by sextuplets too. Kitty moms are a bit better equipped, but still. - RepoRat
She certainly has a "well, what now?" look on her face - Steele Lawman
Such cute babies... - Hedgehog
Last time I got a haircut it was up to my shoulders... so yeah, been a while.

I sort of miss my long hair. Sometimes. You look great! - laura x
I agree. - maʀtha
My first thought on waking up: "Oh good grief. Mornings just keep coming." At least this one is sunny.
Hang in there. - Steele Lawman from Android
they're relentless, those mornings. and completely unsympathetic to my mental state. they're sort of jerks in that regard. - Jenica
stupid mornings. - RepoRat
My foolhardy "maybe I'm just a wimp and don't WANT to shovel" experiment is conclusive: shoveling is a very bad idea. So now I know. #sigh
Shoveled my corner lot with two driveways. If you need me, I'll be over here dead.
Thankfully, my landlord helped with part of it. - lris
You are mighty. - Marianne
So far, watching a momma cat get ready to have kittens on livestream mostly resembles watching my cat sleep all day. http://new.livestream.com/tinykit...
Now into her 3rd day of labor and no visible change. Poor kitty! - lris
Thank you for the reminder about kitten cams! - Julian
poor Dorothy, she looks like she swallowed a volleyball! - RepoRat
Maybe if I drink one more cup of coffee the temp will rise 30 degrees and melt the snow and then I won’t have to shovel. #denial
Your perfect weekend. What would it be like?
Coffee. Then tea. Books. A time-consuming project in the kitchen that just needs poking at now and then (e.g., stock). More tea. More books. Maybe a movie on DVD. A long walk. A nap. NO LAUNDRY. - Catherine Pellegrino
It would be blissfully and utterly unplanned in advance. And the weather would be good enough that going outside was a viable option (there is a warm variant and a cold variant of "good enough", both have their upsides). - Marianne
Saturday - we'd head out early, have brunch at our favourite cafe, mooch around the charity shops, stop for cake possibly with some friends, catch a film, head home. Sunday - stay in jammies all day, do some stitching, have a long bath, make a proper roast dinner, and most importantly.... NOT HAVE TO GO TO WORK THE NEXT DAY! I am very lucky, because most weekends contain at least some of those elements :-), other than the work issue *sigh* - Marina's Godmother :-)
I'd like to rest/sleep one whole day, and be productive one whole day, and at some point do something fun/social, even if it's small. I'd like to cook one good meal and go out for one good meal. - Meg VMeg
Actually, I'll take Meg's weekend, thank you. That sounds perfect. (Meg, you can still have your weekend, too; this isn't a zero-sum weekend.) - Catherine Pellegrino
Is it still procrastinating if I just prioritize other important work?
it's called structured procrastination, then, and people get speaking gigs to teach other people how to do it. *stamp of approval / enabling* - Marianne
I have a list called "Procrastination Work" that has things that either aren't due for a while or aren't especially important but need to be done. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
This is my secret to "success". - joey

Just spoken by me: "If it's a verb, you can participle it."
Spent some quality time with an orthodontist and her goop this morning.
oh, teeth mold goop?? - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Yes indeed. And my choices for flavor were bubble gum, grape, and cherry. EWWWWWWWWWWW - lris
Oh...the pink, now I'm going to gag and try not to hyperventilate stuff. I HATED that stuff - Hedgehog

Even though it's only smart under WiFi, I'm really really liking having a smart phone.
which reminds me, I should really ask the repair folks where the heck my old iTouch is. - RepoRat
Uh, I'm confused: why is it only smart under wifi? I thought the big advantage of a smartphone was that you didn't have to be in range of wifi? - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
Because I can have it for $10/month if it relies on WiFi. If I travel I'll bump it up to true smartphone status. - lris from Android
oh. ... OH! *ponders her current $7/mo dumbphone* Hm. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod

Finishing projects is for the birds. Casting on is where it's at.

Hi mom! SFC was a pillar of the library blog community back in the day, and very active on FriendFeed in the early times. Now he seems to just pop in a few times a year, just to remind us that he's still out there. In this photo from a million years ago, Steven has his head on my shoulder: https://flic.kr/p/4E2YNK - Steele Lawman

Made it to my polling station with a cool 5 minutes to spare. #whew #lastvoter #whataday
Now time to do some of the work I didn’t have time to do at work today.
Some current favorite foods: mushrooms, cooked carrots, and olives. Can we possibly be related??? #mr3
definitely not related to me. NOPE, okay sure, NOPE. - RepoRat
*wonders if she's related to RR, because she hates mushrooms and olives* - Laura
I'm down with everything but the olives. - laura x from iPhone
My next availability on my calendar is Thursday afternoon. Between now and then, most things overlap with each other. *dies*
Unlike. - kaijsa
