I'm sure your baby will look cute eventually.
But for now...nope. - CAJ hates pants

0.9 miles today. I could have done a whole mile, but I was tired of the people. I swear, 20% of my energy goes toward figuring out what the fuck the other swimmers are doing.
It's the thing that stresses me out most about swimming laps. - Kirsten
I did another 0.9 today for the same reason. I have a number of theories: lack of floaters between lanes, confusion about the words "lane" vs "line", totally bizarre drills that require dead body stillness after 8-10 strokes, flopping to facilitate frottage, distraction by construction. - Meg VMeg from Android
I will only go to pools that are very empty for this reason. - laura x
this is why i can't swim! - kendrak
Today I swam behind a guy who was great for the first and last 25% of the length of the pool. In the middle 50%, he would veer sharply to the left, then swim into oncoming traffic for a good 20 meters before returning to our lane. Every single fucking time. - Meg VMeg from Android
It bums me out! I work in a public service position, and I can't come to work angry every day because the public is ruining my healthy fun exercise. - Meg VMeg from Android
Did you say the lanes didn't have dividers? I could see that causing problems - Christina Pikas
No floating dividers, just the stripes on the floor of the pool. - Meg VMeg from Android
No bueno on the lack of dividers. Is this a small community pool? - Corinne L
Wait, no floating dividers? wth? Seriously uncool. - Catherine Pellegrino
It's an Olympic-size, WPA-era public pool. I have no idea. At least this gives me hope about other pools! - Meg VMeg from Android
That's so odd that a public pool wouldn't have floating dividers that are clipped to the pool sides for lap swimming. Maybe a few emails to the right folks would help move things in a more organized direction? In any event, may you find the perfect place to swim laps with more coordinated, rule-following fellow swimmers! - Corinne L

The secret to Shake Shack is to get a beer from the very short express/beverage line, then you can drink it while you're waiting in the very long food line.
You're welcome. - Meg VMeg from Android

Met with new doctor today. We got to about 1995 in my medical history before she was like, "Okay, WTF???"
That far? I thought the early 80s would have got it. - sglassme
Mom told me not to tell you this, but apparently you had some sort of reaction to the pertussis vaccine , so you only got half doses. Welcome to whooping cough. - sglassme
WELP - Sarah G.
I just read a book in which witches, vampires, and daemons each had two extra chromosomes when compared to vanilla humans. And illnesses and drugs worked on them differently. Have you ever felt... witchy? - lris
... ... ... EARWORM, I haz it. - RepoRat
Sarah G.
In related news, got to spit in cup and am getting my genome sequenced, so that's exciting.
Did you happen to mention that while you were in utero, our water source was rain water, in an agricultural area at the peak of the better living through chemistry era? - sglassme

The local free weekly paper has published a column about the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center's gift of their library collection to Colorado College. I'm quoted in the article, which is sorta neat.

Taking a research day and opening a book to find Steve's article on his History and Future of the Book class, as you do.
Neat! - Steele Lawman
I have to confess that I've checked out _Past Or Portal?_ at least three times but haven't actually opened it until today. - The Lunatic Ur Lookin 4 from Android
If you are interested in using special collections in concert with a history of the book class, feel free to ask me questions. I can pass them along to Jessy, my co-author and co-teacher. - Steele Lawman
Thanks, Steve. My class is more of an intro to archives, but I'll keep that in mind! :) - The Lunatic Ur Lookin 4 from Android

Have terrible cold still. Looking for book on kindle to read on plane. Pick "The Stand." Sarah Glassmeyer, Girl Genius.
Now I'm really freaked out about the CDC finding out their avian flu samples were all screwy. - Victor Ganata
Whatever was bopping around San Antonio last week is tough - Sarah G.
Speaking of the con crud, you heard one of our mutual friends got a positive test for whooping cough right? Freaked me the hell out, but my doc confirmed that I *just* have bronchitis. - Elizabeth
OH SHIT. - Sarah G. from iPhone
Eeeek, I thought you had heard, sorry! Steph posted it on FB this weekend. - Elizabeth
oy! - lris
I knew I shouldn't have let any one hug me!!! ;) - Sarah G. from iPhone

I, sworn officer of the court who has never downloaded anything illegally, just convinced myself that libraries have duty to start pirating.

"Hi Laura, I randomly check download statistics for Provenance, and I just ran a report. I wanted to let you know that your article, in the month that it's been available online, has 1,318 downloads. The next highest is 171. Apparently, the digital natives are restless. You rock!" - The Lunatic Ur Lookin 4 from Android
Update: "Your article has now been downloaded 2,446 times! The next highest is the full advocacy issue at 595. Considering there's been a total of 8,813 downloads, your article is over 1/4 of all Provenance downloads." This is nuts! - The Lunatic Ur Lookin 4 from Android
This conference has never ending bowls of popcorn. All other conference planners, take note.
They also gave us a cheese board as swag. - kendrak
Wisconsin, they're doing it right. - RepoRat
Yeah, but now my bag is ridiculously packed with stuff AND a cheeseboard. - kendrak
Are they trying to get you to buy more beer? - laura x
aaaaaaaaaa you have revealed the seekrit plot! - RepoRat
I am a sXe vegan, but I love Madison so far. - kendrak
I am totally bringing my air popper to SLA. - Zamms
I'll bring the margarator. - Meg VMeg
Seriously, I ATE ALL THE POPCORN. and by all, i mean 4 boxes. - kendrak
Flavored? - Meg VMeg
just salt. it was definitely popped in a pot/kettle with oil - kendrak
maybe I should send you home with a bag of locally-grown popcorn ;) - RepoRat
Coconut oil? Peanut oil? Inquiring minds... - Meg VMeg
the boxes (which we had to fold and fill ourselves) said "edible vegetable oil". - kendrak
friday will be spent doing laundry and eating pop corn. also, this is the same conference that gave us a branded cheese board. they know what people like. - kendrak

Harvard is fancy as fuck. They use magnets on their name tags.
*scoff* I've had magnets on my name tags the last two places I've worked. And neither of them were Harvard. ;) - ellbeecee
Yeah, same here. Whatevs, Harvard. - Steele Lawman
colleague had a go at 'em last weekend: we, of course, have (see first pic) 'cos WE FANCY. - RepoRat
I'll tell JZ you're not impressed, then. Harrumph. - Sarah G.
Hmmm "Picture the smell of sizzling brats fill the air as you and your friends enjoy the sweet summer breeze and dancing under the stars." has a somewhat different meaning in British english... - Cameron Neylon
yes, yes it does. *g* it's short for "bratwurst" in the Upper Midwest. (There's a pronunciation difference as well. "Brat" meaning "annoying child" has the a of "fat," whereas "brat" meaning "sausage" has the a of "father.") - RepoRat
...I mean, I know I don't like children but that seems a little excessive all things considered... - Cameron Neylon
soylent wurst! - RepoRat
We don't have name should know who we are.we are that fancy. - Pete from FFHound(roid)!
Wisconsin is fancy as fuck. They can picture smells. - Steele Lawman
And mix metaphors! FANCILY. - RepoRat
Btw they made up return our name badges at the end of the day. :( - Sarah G.
well, that ain't fancy. - RepoRat

It was a dark and stormy Saturday, and LB refused to get out of bed.
Also, LB's house had no power. - The Lunatic Ur Lookin 4 from Android
You're probably not talking about the drink, the dark and stormy. ;) - Tamara J. B.
I made myself get up and go to the laundrymat this morning. But now I'm home again and considering the first nap of this grey and gloomy day - ellbeecee
Tamara, nope, although I thought about it as I was typing. :) - The Lunatic Ur Lookin 4 from Android
if you need power LB I got some y'all can use - Sir Shuping is just sir
Some days it would be nice to start out with an adult beverage. - CAJ hates pants

holly #ravingfangirl
HAHAHAHA. someone adopted a pair of kitties and renamed them Van and Halen. x______x
i was confused at first because i only saw the info on one named Halen and thought "that's an odd name." until the rest of the info came up. :D - holly #ravingfangirl
(Old picture, but you get the idea.) - Zamms
BABY!!! - Meg VMeg
What can it do? - Meg VMeg
Right now, not much, cos of the meds. But it jumps and runs and likes to roll around in volcanic due. (WHICH YOU CAN BUY!) - Zamms
Noises? - Meg VMeg
Not many. He has a squeaky toy noise when he's happy and a hiss and a grunt when he wants to attack you. Otherwise, he's pretty quiet. Nocturnal, by the way. - Zamms
Someone needs a live webcam... - Meg VMeg
Is he doing better yet? - Meg VMeg
He's okay. He hates me cos I keep forcing meds down his gullet. But he has surgery tomorrow, so hopefully, he'll get through that okay. - Zamms
Gah! What? - Meg VMeg
Yeah. Here's what happened: he mangled his tail by gnawing on it, so they have to amputate it. O_o - Zamms
:( - Meg VMeg
How's he doing? - Meg VMeg
Good! Surgery successful, tail healing well. He hates me giving him meds, but we only have a few more days before he goes back for a check-up. Happy chinnie. - Zamms
Whew. - Meg VMeg

Animals I did not hit at 2am, after driving 4 hours, after being awake since 3:30am: 3 deer with antlers, 2 deer without antlers, 2 jackrabbits, 1 cottontail rabbit, 1 freaked out raccoon frozen in the middle of the road.
The next day I did not hit a family of 5 Merriam's turkeys (3 babies) and 2 Kaibab squirrels. - Meg VMeg

In summary, #AALL14 was very good for my self esteem. :)

I cleaned my gutters for the first time in three years. Is there a merit badge for that?
*bestows* - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
I think it should come with a snazzy vest to put the merit badge on as well. - Steve C
The vest is just one of those red vests that they wear in all of the Ace Hardware commercials, I think. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
