Apparently pranksters got into the library last night and TP'ed the circ and reference desks:

Looks cool! :-D - Uli
At least they didn't do donuts on your nice carpet. - Stephen Francoeur
(FTR these were pranksters who happened to have swipe cards for the staff entrance and sub-master keys to the building, but whatever. :D ) - Catherine Pellegrino
Gee, that hardly narrows it down at all! - Kirsten

My parents received a robocall encouraging them to vote early, but it's Halloween-themed, so it's Dracula and then he wants them to vote a straight Republican ticket. And I can't tell if it's a joke? A surreptitious Democratic Party ad? Or if the Republicans are truly owning up to being inhuman and draining the lifeblood of the working class.

considering how tone-deaf the GOP is, especially here in TX, this might actually be from them. - Big Joe Silence
I have to say that I actually like this compared to most political robocalls I've gotten. - Spidra Webster
consider who the messenger is, tho. and i don't mean Dracula. - Big Joe Silence
I'm with Meg. It may well be a Dem message given that they have Dracula (a bloodsucker) voting the "straight Republican ticket". - Spidra Webster

#toddlerx: That's violin! Me: Yup, that's Bob Dylan! #toddlerx: That's Bob Dylan!
That's my boy. - laura x
That's good parenting. - Steve C Team Marina
There are a few things Bob Dylan has recorded that I don't like, but there aren't very many. - laura x

#firstworldproblems We ran out of K-cups and I had to grind coffee and boil water by hand. This happened yesterday; only just now have I been able to talk about it.
Steady on, friend. - Marie
Stiff upper lip, ole chap. - Eric - It's My Thing
I'm so sorry. Just your pride bruised, no lasting trauma, I hope. - ellbeecee
Thank you all for your support in this difficult time. - Steele Lawman
Just $2 a month can help us help Steve avoid minor manual labour. Please give generously to Keurigged and Ready. - Pete : Team Marina

Heading out shortly with mr. 9 and a friend of his for the Pokemon Phantom Forces prerelease.
Ooh that reminds me, Game Stop is giving away Shiny Pokemon cards. I should take Jayden, I think today's the last day - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Aw, Jayden just told me it's not a card giveaway, it's a digital download for a game/device he doesn't have. Ah well. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'll have to check out whether this is available in Canada. Ms10 is a huge pokemon fan. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

Playing Magic the Gathering tonight. Losing, but having fun.
Mr 14 is playing FNM tonight. - Joe
I ended up going 2-2 with mono red aggro. What did Mr. 14 play tonight? - Steele Lawman
I just know he placed 3rd out of 6. He has a new deck that he is using, and I forget the style he likes to play. - Joe
I'd love to play a few rounds of M:TG with some friends. I'm not 100% sure I'd remember how to play (I only ever played casually), but, if they remember the rules (and have a deck I could borrow), I'd totally be into it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Happy to contribute! - Zamms
Laura, you are a treasure. - kaijsa
Hey Laura, can I send you a revised Berlin All graphic? Just noticed my kid's name mentioned it so I want to crop it a little. - Zamms
And now it is also automatically fed into the LSW room. Heeeeeeeeeeee - lris
Well played! - Zamms
Zamms, yes, please do--or just go ahead and submit it and I'll delete the other one. - laura x
I found the avatar by searching for search fail, licensed for reuse with modification on Google images: http://bestandworstever.blogspot.com/2013... - laura x
"yoga poses" and "otitis externa" just made me guffaw at the reference desk. Damn you, Auto-Suggest! - Catherine Pellegrino
This is just so awesome. - Galadriel C.
Oh darn. Can't recreate my favorite. They turned of suggest globally in our ebscohost. Oh wait - publib! - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Delightful. - Marie
I am sending this link to MPOW's cataloger. *evil chuckle* - Catherine Pellegrino
I love this so much. - Meg VMeg
This definitely goes in my best thing ever file. - Megan loves summer

I don't know if I did it right but I tried submitting. PQ took this exact title New Research Center Aims to Develop Second Generation of Surgical Robots and wanted to change aims to maims :) - Christina Pikas
Oh phooey. I need to get it to email me when people submit so I remember to post them. :) - laura x from iPhone
Turns out, we might be getting Primo. Soon I'll be a contributor. - lris from Android
Gave this to my coworker who is doing a little comparative research on discovery systems . she was much amused - Hedgehog

My book is in 100 libraries.
That is a great accomplishment! - Steve C Team Marina
I do find the wording of this URL interesting... http://www.amazon.com/Night-S... - Joe
this book contains 'unexpected Laura Crossett' ;-) - Marina's Godmother :-)
Checked out 7 times here! - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
No one expects Laura Crossett, surprise is her greatest weapon. - Blake
I know at least one library that has it that is not in worldcat. - Katy S from iPhone
*wonders who will play him in movie version* what? it could happen ... FF could be a kind of pseudo Greek Chorus - MoTO: Team Marina
Katy, yup, my library has it and isn't in Worldcat. I assume there are others. - laura x from iPhone
So I think you could safely say "my book is in 100 PLUS libraries." - Regular Amanda
...and no MINUS libraries! - Aaron the Librarian
And it's on my kindle. I checked Wyldcat to verify that only 4 WY libraries have it, and it's true. BAD FORM, Wyoming librarians. - kaijsa

Reading about copyright law always makes me feel like a cranky toddler because I want things to be EASY and FUN and centered around MY DESIRES! But instead they are DUMB and COMPLICATED!
I just want to use what I want when I want it. JEEZ. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
^^ THIS - Steele Lawman
Copyright is like wedding cake. Yeah sure it could be simple but wouldn't it awesome to be put some flowers, ribbons, little figures, a couple of extra layers, some extra tiers, maybe a fruity filling oooo let's get some columns on there wedding guests love columns. - Andy
And let's make it six times as big as anyone will actually eat! - RepoRat
Eat cake. EAT CAKE!! - Steele Lawman
I find it perversely fascinating. A nifty and fairly simple 18th century idea that went Hollywood. Millions of dollars on spectacle, special effects, and vapidity. - barbara fister
Oh, and lobbyists and graft. Lobbyists v. Hobbyists: Return of the Wedding Cake from Hell. - barbara fister

About the field of poppies: "It's beautiful!" - Melly - #TeamMarina
She's crying because it's finished and she wants to watch it again straight away and I said she has to have a nap first, hahaha. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm impressed she made it through her first viewing without freaking out about the Wicked Witch. I certainly didn't make it through. Go Emily! - Corinne L
She tried to rehash the plot and it came out all jumbled and awfully cute. About Dorothy and the girl in the bubble and dat wizard and de yion. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!
"yion" *dies of cuteness* - Spidra Webster
We're just about to finish viewing number 3! - Melly - #TeamMarina

True or false: today I spent 3 hours cutting butterflies out of tissue paper.
False. It was 4. - RepoRat
True, plus an hour of folding and gluing plus an hour of vodka time. - Steele Lawman
The hard part was that some of the butterflies ended up turning back into caterpillars... - Lily

Totally stealing this. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Now I am thinking about getting a tablet...
NOT an iPad. - Julian
I've got an LG we picked up cheap when Uli got his new phone. Really like it. Admittedly, I mostly use it for games, reading, and social stuff; no clue how it would do for anything more complex. - Kirsten
we have a Kindle Fire HD. it was free. no real complaints. - Big Joe Silence
We continue to like our Kindle Fire HD 8.9, but now you'd want the HDX 8.9, which is apparently powerful enough to be a decent general-purpose tablet (and has phenomenal resolution). But it's still Amazon-tuned, running a customized Android, which may be an issue. - Walt Crawford
I wonder if I can still get a Nexus 7, now that the Nexus 9 has been announced. - Julian
I'm looking to replace my Nexus 7, Julian. I really liked it. - MoTO: Team Marina
My dad picked up a new Nexus 7 last week, to replace his 1st-gen Nexus 7. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I love my Dell Venue 7. - Corinne L
This might actually happen today, thanks to Micro Center. I will update on this soon. - Julian
You can still get a Nexus 7 from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/s.... - Me
Also I suggest what Walt suggested as well, especially if you live in the Amazon world and have kids (There is a feature for kid time and such that is not standard on others.) I use my Fire HD for when watching tv and such along with some games. - Me
Just got an amazing steal on a Nexus 7 at my local Micro Center. I almost bought two. The second would have been the 2012 model, but they didn't have any (and I would have happily taken a refurb). - Julian from YouFeed
My wife is also on her 2nd Nexus 7. - Bruce Lewis
Just a suggestion, but I love this case for my nexus 7 http://www.amazon.com/JETech%... - Me
I'm liking my Surface 2 very much the current Surface is a 3 - WarLord
I did choose a case in the store. One can always change cases... - Julian
Me being me, of course I already have Ubuntu installed. - Julian

Writing my sabbatical proposal is exhausting. I need a sabbatical just to be able to plan a good sabbatical.
Just remember that it's a subgenre of speculative fiction and try to enjoy it. - barbara fister
What's the old saying? It's easier to ask permission to do something on your sabbatical than it is to actually end up doing the thing you asked permission for. - John Dupuis
(He says, figuring he'll start on the stuff he's "supposed" to do after finishing up the presentation on the 28th...) - John Dupuis
The hardest part is coming up with a plan this far in advance, as my application is due this month for a sabbatical in 2016. But as people keep telling me, plans can change. My head thinks it looks like a good application, so I'm going to stop stressing. - kaijsa
Also, double lolz to barbara. Speculative fiction is pretty spot-on. - kaijsa

We need a Primo Knows Best Tumblr, really. - Zamms from iPhone

^^^ That is brilliant. - Catherine Pellegrino
Depending on how the vote has gone .... - barbara fister
I remember students posting some interesting ones for Encore.. I think one went "Singapore general elections" and it went "did you mean 'Singapore fairy tales' "..... Can't duplicate it anymore or find the screenshot. - aaron
I got "did you mean frocks" when I searched for frack*. submitted. also, why are there 2517 results for frack* and only 426 for "frack*" . #LeSigh - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Oooh! And I got "did you mean frage?" for the same search! WTH is "frage"? (edit: Oh, right, German.) - Catherine Pellegrino

Last night I had drinks with a friend. Next week her boyfriend is staying with us. I think I agreed to talk him into starting therapy, stopping coloring his hair, and getting a vasectomy. But I will have two days.

Sage, last minute cruise advice from my dad: "Don't feel bad about getting two desserts with dinner. "
Even ordering two dinners! And eating the best bits from both. - Lnorigb from FFHound!

My son talks a lot about how his body wants to do one thing (i.e. misbehave) but his brain tells him to do something else (i.e. behave). I am thinking of this as my body takes me to a meeting room and my brain tells me not to go in.
