i'm part of the librarian mafia. also, my desk is clean.
I just meant to close my eyes for a second, I swear.
Prepping for meeting later with the National Seminar on Jesuit Higher Education. Yikes. *nibbles fingertips*
Oh, you will do just fine. Don't pull out the almond fangs, though. - Joe

This was my year to be less of a hand talker when speaking to large groups. I am not doing well so far.
Aw, what's wrong with being a hand talker? Embrace the hand! [half-Sicilian, rendered mute if her hands are tied behind her back ------> ] - Catherine Pellegrino
What Catherine said. As long as you avoid heavy amounts of Kermit flailing, I see no problem here. - Corinne L
Hey, I actually Kermit-flailed at my boss JUST TODAY. - Catherine Pellegrino
Hee! Did it help get your point across, Catherine? Then it is a WIN. :-) - Corinne L
I am a massive flailer while speaking. It's honestly never seemed like a problem! - RepoRat
Well, she pretty much Kermit-flailed back at me, so I guess that counts as a win. :D - Catherine Pellegrino
Indeed it does! - Corinne L
We discovered it when my husband took pictures of me during a conference presentation so that I could put an action shot on my blog. Except every picture was like I was doing magic or conducting an orchestra. Ugh. - Marie

Glad for Mr. Gunn's comment on this post. - Marie from Bookmarklet <--that's the inspiration for Sia's SNL performance. <--that's the inspiration for Sia's SNL performance.
When reviewing a contract first note what’s there (publisher’s needs) and then identify what’s missing (your needs). Then negotiate.

Hey, t-ra, thanks for the standing ovation. - Mike Lee

I thought the kid who didn't seem to shower at all last semester might take a nice soaky bath over the break, but no.
Ewww - Tamara J. B.
Oh dear. That'd warrant a reporting to the office of student conduct, here. - Kirsten
It reminds me of the time in the early 1970's when two or three vanloads of college students went upstairs to the apartment my grandmother rented out, and took showers. My great-aunt Alice was just so relieved that they were getting showers. :-) - bentley
in my highschool they took a boy who was like that into the shower (fully clothed) and emptied like 10 cans of aerosol deodorant on to him. i think he got the hint. - Christina Pikas

Do any of you have the Carcassonne app? If you do, do you also have the traditional board?
Yes. Yes. - lris from Android
Iris, which do you use more? Trying to figure out where a newbie would spend her $ best for this game. - Marie
I'd take the physical board game over the app-ified Carcassonne any day (but that's how I feel about almost all table vs app games). Although my cousin plays the app version a lot, so I trust it's a good one. - Micah from FFHound!
I think I'm leaning toward the board. Thanks, Micah. - Marie
I just have the physical game and liked so much I never looked into the app. - Galadriel C. from Android
physical, hands down. - holly #ravingfangirl
(not that the app is bad.) - holly #ravingfangirl
The app is great, but I'd go with the board. - lris
lris would know. - RepoRat
The experts have spoken. Thank you all! - Marie

The plate with the fork (and spoon?) has been sitting on top of the book return bin since before the winter holiday. I wonder when someone will take it away? I can see it from my office so will report back.
you need to set up a video camera so that people can watch it! maybe people will come by and preform with it or something :D - Sir Shuping is just sir
I'm sure some tidy soul will kindly place them inside the bin. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
you could put a placemat under it. Then if no movement add a glass, etc. - Elizabeth Brown
I keep expecting it to get covered by snow. And then I remember where you are. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
put a little art-installation label thinger on it - RepoRat

Old 97s - Marie
How old is too old to begin a PhD program?
never. as long as your brain still works fucking go for it! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Second Andy's comment. - Pete from FFHound(roid)!
When you are old enough to know better. - Steele Lawman
When you can no longer spell PhD. - Todd Hoff
When you are dead. - Shannon - GlassMistress
All of the above. - Catherine Pellegrino
Depends if it's fulltime? Like, for a fulltime PhD program, I'd consider how much salary/savings/interest I'd lose from living off a stipend that long, compared to whatever salary increase I'd get with a PhD (sorry if this was supposed to be a rhetorical question, I'm boring like that). - Meg VMeg
you people are way too supportive. :) - Marie
Put it this way...I'm working towards that (it's still a few years away) and I'm 49. - Spidra Webster
In my first attempt at grad school I lived down the hall from a woman who was in her mid-60's, who was working on a PhD in education after an entire career in computer programing. - Kirsten
When you're dead. I hope to have mine done before I'm 43. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
One of my favorite people is in England doing hers in her 60s. - Alix May
Did you see that Girl Scouts have a new cookie flavor: Rah Rah Raisins. You freaks should love them.
gross. - ellbeecee
Well, this freak still loves thin mints, and maybe those lemon ones. - Joe
Because of new town and new job, I have a new dealer, and my new dealer must be in a different district because her order form didn't include any lemon cookies at all. :-( - bentley
love the lemon ones - but your troop has to be in the Little Brownie Bakers part of the country/supply chain to get them. - ellbeecee
Wait. I'm looking at the website for cookies and the only lemon cookies they show are the Lemonades. Didn't they have lemon creme sandwiches or something like that? Or did I imagine them? - bentley
the lemon ones I was thinking of are the Savannah Smiles - the Lemonades aren't in my area, which is a LBB region. - ellbeecee
those were the Lemon Chalets, bentley. they were the best, but they don't make them anymore. - holly #ravingfangirl
It's weird that I'm in a different area, since my dealers are in the same state and only 40 miles apart. Holly: yes, Lemon Chalets. Those were wonderful. - bentley
Freak who still misses Sunshine Bakeries raisin cookies and Mother's Iced Raisin Cookies ---> - Spidra Webster
Hemmed and ironed some curtains. Oiled the cutting boards. Unwrapped bobbins of thread I'll never use again.

t-ra, i was trying to distract myself from awful home repairs. maybe you need to trick yourself into doing the tasks by thinking of something worse than the tasks. - Marie
Distracting myself from the holes the plumbers are putting in the wall by doing small, good things around the house.
