I was just enthusing with a coworker about the spam email I got from Gov. Hickenlooper thanking me for my support of Colorado Civil Unions (I sent them some money last year), and letting me (us all) know he just signed the bill. I was telling my coworker that I am pretty sure this is the first time I have ever influenced public policy in Colorado...
I just found a mistake^H^H^H thought I found a mistake in the LoC authority file. I squeaked aloud in excitement that I would be able to talk about it in my ungraded assignment for org of info this week. #walkingonthedarkside#dorkitude Please feel free to share your own example of disproportionate enthusiasm in the comments.
Thing that makes me go hmmm: when I make multiple consortial requests for a relatively obscure book from 10 years ago, and Every Time, it ends up getting checked out at the owning library, and canceled on me, instead. Yes, consortial friends, I agree, it DOES look really good.
I don't remember the rest of the dream, but just before I woke up this morning, I was emphatically trying to explain to the okapi's keeper, as I petted said okapi, that just because the okapi lurrrrrved me enough to act like a domesticated goat, did NOT mean that I was in any way equipped to look after it for the next week.
I was too quick to respond to the twitter hackage, so twitter thought my password change was worrisome evidence of possible hacking, and forced me to change my password AGAIN (no, I didn't click on any email links). There's gotta be an xkcd about recursions somewhere that applies to this.
I spend a lot of time grumping about scholarly societies who suck (ESPECIALLY THAT ONE), so I wanted to take a second to give the American Society for Cell Biology some props. They are distributing a CRAPLOAD of free lectures and short educational clips (including a monthly magazine). http://ibioseminars.org/ Nifty.
FF ate my very old ani difranco lyrics thread and I am Resting Up, which as always involves a lot of ani difranco. So I am putting this here for the next time I want it. Feel free to chime in with whatever ani lyrics you want, before that. (You can chime in with other things, but I will ignore them. Unless they are too awesome to ignore.)
So I have two final projects to do by Friday and Sunday respectively, and an exam to take by the Friday after that. It wouldn't be accurate to say I haven't started them yet, but it would be hard to prove I had. Add in visiting people and holiday events and early morning meeetings and some family things I'd rather not talk about here, and well.
