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

I'm baking brioche from a starter! It's my first time making brioche. And my first time using natural leavening. Everything has taken longer than I expected/read, but it seems to be turning into bread? It smells SO GOOD in here, you guys. Wish I could share smells!

Canvas Truckette Bag - 'Twins' | Queen Bee by Rebecca Pearcy
Oh, man. Their stuff is so cute. I think the "sprout" or "chirp" ones are my favorites. - Jennifer Dittrich
Cute! - Laura
what's funny is that just earlier today I had been thinking of switching to the Truckette I have because the purse I am using is just not big enough. but now... I have one small bag that is a Chirp and my glasses case (and i think something else?) are Sprouts. plus all the others i have... I, um, may have a Queen Bee problem. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl

Weezer released a new album today?!?! How did I not know about this? Oh wait I know the answer. It comes in the form of a 14 month old named Lincoln.
Can't afford to drop the cash to buy it right now. Spotify will have to do for the time being. I really like what I'm hearing. Sounds like they went back to their original sound a bit. I feel like I'm a Sophomore in college again. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Spotify is my go-to for new music. So much easier and I feel so hip and trendy. - Corinne L

Official #teamharpy Statement on the case of Joseph Hawley Murphy vs. nina de jesus and Lisa Rabey - http://teamharpy.wordpress.com/
Suing for 1.25 million dollars. What a fucking douchebag. Hope he gets hit by a truck. - Steele Lawman
I just saw this on Twitter and wondered when it would get posted here. What Steve said. - Catherine Pellegrino
He claims that the statements by the two women "have caused him to be regarded with feelings of hatred, contempt, ridicule, fear, dislike, approbrium or disesteem." Joke's on him, as most people I know have ALWAYS felt that way about him. - Steele Lawman
This is utterly outrageous. Any guy who has a whole internet joke to himself ("nice shirt!") can't really say that he's innocent of causing contempt, ridicule, dislike, and disesteem. - lris
Dude. I hold him in contempt, ridicule, dislike, and disesteem JUST for calling himself a "library futurist." The rest is, I don't know, icing on the cake? - Catherine Pellegrino
does anybody know the ultimate origin of the "nice shirt" meme? can we date it? I think that might help the defendants. http://teamharpy.wordpress.com/call-fo... - RepoRat
I do not know. However, I know that it was a meme in 2008 when I hung out with library friends in Chicago for ALA Annual. He even looked me over and said "Nice shirt" in some hotel lobby or other that year.I remember almost nothing else about that encounter except that I fought the urge to laugh because of his reputation for saying just that. - lris
I remember it from IL in 2008 and CiL in 2009. - laura x from iPhone
I was just about to post a link to this (comment: Really?) but I'm late to the party. Still, damn. Nice suit. - Walt Crawford
Hee hee. Nice one, Walt. - laura x from iPhone
They are looking for witnesses. I hope they find some - maʀtha
I hope so too. I wish I could be more help to them in that way, except that I'm actually really grateful that I don't have anything useful to offer them, you know? - Catherine Pellegrino
Well, any of us who can honestly say that we learned about Joey Digits's conference behavior from FriendFeed (where AFAIK neither defendant has participated) may have a role as a character witness. - RepoRat
lisa just posted to code4lib with links to their page and saying that soon they'll have a link up for donations, as well as requests to continue to spread the message - Sir Shuping is just sir
Lisa's posted to FF --but only in the past 6 months. - Hedgehog
I believe I was first nice-shirted at SLA in 2008 (twice at that conference). - Meg VMeg
Unfortunately, isn't "nice shirt" rather innocuous? I mean, I know it could still be creepy, but it's just the kind of thing a smart creep would say, because it doesn't say anything about the person's body or anything. - Steele Lawman
Yes, it is very savvy, Steele - maʀtha
Sure, but at the same time, if he's pretty much the only person to have told all of us we have nice shirts (excluding people we actually knew at the conferences) that's kinda weird, and we all found the encounters weird and noteworthy, which is also important. I don't think it would win any of us a settlement if we sued him for harassment, of course, but it also does nothing to defend his thought that he's totally wronged by people who mention that he harasses women. - lris
He must be being counseled to remain silent. This is the quietest I've ever seen him. I'm still wondering about his quick stint and departure from III. - Mary Carmen
MC I kinda wondered as well. And I'm wondering if that was III silently acknowledging that there were things outside of work going on that they didn't wanna touch anymore - Sir Shuping is just sir
I met Joe once at CIL in...08? 09? and I know that there were several different people then that told me that....well he was basically someone to steer clear of because of how he treated people. - Sir Shuping is just sir
I met him several times when he was science librarian at Yale. Only thought was that he was an energetic new librarian who hadn't been ground down yet. Didn't see the behavior mentioned but hat means nothing. The shirt thing is odd. Did he ever say that to a man? - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Never heard him say it, but I imagine that as an innocuous opening line he had used just to talk to someone. I first met him around 2007 or so at SLA, and he seemed ambitious and fresh outa libschool in HI. - Joe
It may have been intended as innocuous, but it was pretty tone deaf. It's weird because the phrase itself is utterly innocuous, but the vibe of the interaction wasn't. Whatever his intentions, his reputation wasn't helped by that particular conversational tick. - lris
I would argue it was intended to /appear/ innocuous. - Joe
That is my suspicion as well. - lris
It is a line with possible/plausible deniability of a sexual advance. - Joe
Yes, and it accomplishes a wonderful end, which is that I feel stupid saying "that made me uncomfortable." - lris
I am still disappointed that I was on an elevator with him and did not get nice-shirted. (CiL 2009) - laura x from iPhone
I remember you noting that at the time. :) - lris
Someone said "nice shirt' to me today O-O (He actually liked my shirt. I think.) - barbara fister
I have submitted my entirey hearsay witness - to whit, "I hear he's creepy.I hear this often." Not sure it will help, but worth a try. - barbara fister
I submitted my "he said I had a nice shirt" statement yesterday, with the caveat that it was a decidedly weird vibe at the time, and at the time it was already a bit of a joke in our crowd and our crowd didn't include either of the defendants at the time. - lris
Nice Shirt goes way back, but I will say while it was odd, it was not aimed only at women, and always struck me as an ice breaker form a socially awkward person who had been taught to always compliment folks, and that was his go to compliment. If it had only been women, that might be one thing, but I do remember men getting 'nice shirted' as well - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
on a related note, I hope there is a way to use older profile info on social media sites as information for this case. I seem to recall different info on a certain flickr profile. Glad there's an opportunity to provide character witness information. - Elizabeth Brown
Hm. Does the Internet Archive pick up old profiles? - RepoRat
I think I shall be sending Agent Fister's latest LBF to the few colleagues who don't understand the whole #teamharpy issue. Perfect framing and summary. https://www.insidehighered.com/blogs... - kaijsa
I was just coming here to link to that post too. Fantastic piece, Barbara. - lris
I regret saying that I hope he gets hit by a truck. Not because it wasn't what I was feeling, nor because I'm worried that Joey Digits might sue me, but because I like to say that Mr. Rogers is my hero, and it isn't very Mr. Rogers to wish that someone would get run over. What I really wish is that Joey had read the posts in question and thought not, "how do I sue for defamation?" but "how do I stop hurting people?" That's the more Mr. Rogers wish. - Steele Lawman

awwwww! hi sweetie! - RepoRat
He's about nine weeks old and early signs indicate that he and Calvin may get on famously. - Jason P
Marley couldn't give a shit. He strode in and stole part of her dinner and she didn't even look up at him. She's seen 'em come and go. - Jason P
He's adorable - such unique coloring! - Laura
What a cutie! - Galadriel C. from Android
Cute, but he looks like he may be an advance scout for the Alien Cat Invasion. Something about the eyes ... - MoTO: Team Marina
Odds are good he'll darken up a bit as he grows, which will make his coloring even more striking. - RepoRat
EARS. omg the ears! - Catherine Pellegrino
I love the super black nose - Hedgehog
and toe beans! - RepoRat
I LOVE HIM. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
We're gonna need this many pictures every day. You know that, right? - RepoRat
He and Calvin are becoming buddies. It's amazing to watch. - Jason P
Is he a Maine Coon? Cause he has a big M on his little forehead. And he will be a substantial cat. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
He could have some MC blood, Maurice. (He's a shelter mutt, so who knows.) We're going on the theory that he might be a Siamese/tabby mix, given his points and the stripes on his face, and the blue in his eyes, but he definitely doesn't have the Siamese voice. I think he may be a big guy too. He eats like a horse. - Jason P
Siamese tabby all the way. He looks just like my friend Sarah's cat did, as a kitten, and we know she was a S/T mix. He also has that slight cross-eyed look that siamese cats get. Miles has it, too. ;) - Jenica
oh em gee the cute! cannot stand! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
He's very outgoing but still often shy about being petted or picked up. Yesterday I caught him napping, picked him up to cuddle him, and he went "eeeeeeEEEEeeee hey this is okay PURRRRRRRRRRR", so I have high hopes that he's going to end up being very sociable. He follows Calvin around the house wanting to play now, and Cal seems to like it. - Jason P
It takes a few days before they get over OMG UNFAMILIAR PLACE. He's gonna be just fine. - RepoRat
Oh, totally. He was in "high-speed exploring mode" almost immediately. No fear. - Jason P
ADORABLE - Mary Carmen

So I realize I may play down how much my foot actually hurts when trying to make an appointment with my podiatrist, but I'll be damned if I'll let my husband convince me I'm as bad off as someone with a broken foot.
:-( is he just wanting you to treat the injury more seriously or is he putting you down? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
He thinks I should play up my injury so I'll get an appt sooner. I said I didn't like lying and he doesn't think it's lying. He says I don't stick up for myself. I think he's a hypochondriac. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
It's really about getting the appt. The person making the appt has to assess whether you need an appt right away or can wait (up to a month or more). Didn't matter this time though. I got an appt for Monday!! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
An FYI - I'm getting sharp shooting pains on the bottom of my right foot/heel. Loving the new pains... not. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Heel spur? I have one in each foot. - Jenny
