I can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures of the sunset tonight in LA. It’s amazing out there right now!
I know. I wish I'd been able to get to a good promontory to take one. - Spidra Webster
Victor came through for us over on Instagram. - Marie
I bet the #mydayinla hashtag will turn some good ones up, too. - Spidra Webster
RT @TrolleyParker I'm still in the bunker. Did @instagram survive the #LA sunset? #filters #clouds #sky #smog - Spidra Webster

So it's been a productive day and I feel like I'm just done. It's only 3:00 though. Maybe I'll clean my desk...
That's about how all my days have been lately. Desk-cleaning, plant-watering, little administrative duties, scanning licenses, and the like are all good brainless-but-productive things for end of day. Oh, and rewriting the to-do list for tomorrow! - Kirsten
Don't wanna threadjack, but what do you do with the licenses once scanned? - Marie
We've long kept electronic copies on our shared drive just as back-up in case something happens to the paper copies. But now that we've got Alma we're also putting copies there and coding them for things like ILL permissions, which will make anything we code viewable to staff amd patrons. - Kirsten from Android
Marie
heads-up that T&F bought the entire Landes BioScience collection: http://www.landesbioscience.com/
and all the M.E. Sharpe journals. yowza. - Marie
Huh. - Joe
I don't think the me sharpe website has been updated in about 8-10 years. - Joe
Laura Norvig
How many of you lovely peeps are at Internet Librarian? (I'm not, but I'm right up the road in Santa Cruz if anyone wants to visit)
Huh, just noticed their CoC: http://www.infotoday.com/CodeOfC.... Seems weakly worded, no? - Marie
Do CoCs usually include wording like this? (note: I don't think it's a bad idea, just... relevant... given the personnel/situations associated with this conference) "Conference attendees are also prohibited from verbally abusing or physically accosting the conference staff, speakers, or other delegates." - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Oooh, Santa Cruz. :-) - YvonneM
RepoRat
Seems like we haven't done a random poll in a while, so. Author, artist, musician, or other creator that you like but someone important in your life can't stand?
Kate Rusby. Don't ask me why, but the huz just cannot with her. Whereas he is forbidden from playing Led Zep in my presence because NOPE. - RepoRat
is it because led zeppelin sings about hobbits and shit? - kendrak
I just can't stand 'em, no matter what they're screaming about. - RepoRat
Although I don't listen to his ditties much anymore either, I'm afraid it's Johann Sebastian Bach; my wife finds him far too repetitive. - Walt Crawford
my husband hates jazz. all jazz. even jazz influences in other genres. except the occasional band that he doesn't believe is jazz no matter how many times i insist on it. meanwhile half my cd collection is jazz. good thing we mostly overlap-or-are-indifferent otherwise. - Marianne
I am kinda the jazz hater in my relationships. To be fair, I don't hate ALL jazz, just the experimental/freeform/super noodle-y stuff. So basically the stuff people who love jazz often love the most. - kaijsa
My mother hates Tori Amos. In better news, though, I seem to be converting Peter into a Dylan fan. - laura x
Uck, Tori Amos. Maybe I'm just a hater in general. A long-term bf of mine from my 20s was into Primus. I was like, NOPE. - kaijsa
i don't think there's anything musically, though i hate books and he's an avid reader. he also hates soccer. - kendrak
I get a lot of ribbing at home about my enjoyment of "middle aged/older women solving murders" television (Murder She Wrote, Agatha Christie, Rosemary and Thyme, etc) but he'll sit through them. - Hedgehog
heeeeeeeeey Rosemary and Thyme is awesome. - RepoRat
I love a lady sleuth myself. - kaijsa
My guy digs Tom Waits like whoa but all I hear is screeching and moaning. - Marie
I can't think of anything of mine that C truly can't stand, but he can listen to his Jethro Tull SOMEPLACE ELSE DEAR GOD. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
You all can have the lady sleuth party and I will have the Jethro Tull/Tom Waits/Led Zeppelin party. On vinyl. - laura x from iPhone
My hubs is not a fan of Adele or Beyoncé and I'm a big fan of both. But he's into all kinds of terrible contemporary country that makes me gag, so... - Laura Krier
I like ABBA - particularly loud when I'm cleaning. M can't stand any disco - Christina Pikas from iPhone
I really can't think of anything that falls into this category, unless Sarah tried to make me look at cadaver anatomy pics or something. I've fallen in love with lots of artists because of Sarah, though: Richard Thompson (!!!), Virginia Woolf, E. M. Forster, Oysterband, Maddy Prior... Okay, sometimes I get sick of Elvis Costello, but I don't hate him, I just can't listen to him for days upon days like some people. - maʀtha
I tease the mister all the time about his second tier prog rock collection (Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Yes, etc.) and Rush. Although Rush is redeemed in my eyes because they did a song with Aimee Mann. - Elizabeth Brown
Spouse is not a big fiction reader (!!), reads a lot but almost exclusively non-fiction. This boggles my mind. Over time, I've pushed spouse towards fiction and he's pushed me towards non-fiction. So, weirdly, almost any fiction I read is something where I tell him about it and he's like "meh, when I have time", which often means never. - Regular Amanda
My wife can't stand Aimee Bender but I love her writing. Also, she really despises most 1970s music (there are artists she likes but not many) while I am a big fan of 1970s music. ABBA is a perfect example. :) - John: Thread Killer
My ex-husband didn't like ANYTHING I liked, books, music, or otherwise. My current husband and I are pretty well meshed, and he complains very little about my choices. <---- LIFE LESSON. - Jenica
Woody Allen's Annie Hall. I'm Yay and she is Nope. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
My cats put up with my choices, on the whole. They do prefer I read e-books to paper, because I don't have to lift my cat-petting hand to turn pages as often. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
Oh Woody Allen. I just have an irrational Nope to it all. I'm sure some stuff is really good, but just Nope. - Regular Amanda
Woody Allen reminded me that with one exception, all my closest friends hate Roman Polanski and by extension, his work. He may be an odious person, but Rosemary's Baby is my all-time fave film, and I really like his other work (esp. Repulsion, Chinatown, The Pianist). - kaijsa
holly #ravingfangirl
you guys, when i go in to work tomorrow my desk should no longer be in the Vortex of Cold. I am giddy and hope this actually works.
THIS IS POTENTIALLY A HUGE DEAL - holly #ravingfangirl
Did they move your desk out of the library? Zing! - Marie
they claim i will still be in the building. WE SHALL SEE. - holly #ravingfangirl
We might need photographic proof of the location of said desk. - Kirsten
Our A/C was ripped out a month ago. It's been stifling in here For A Month. I would like the Vortex of Cold, plz. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn

Touching actual print journals today to make decisions about what to keep/discard. Ew.
so...how dusty are they? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Did you attend our Coll Dev meeting today? Same wavelength. - Joe
They came to me dusted and with a spreadsheet of titles included in the pile. I work with some pretty fab folks. - Marie
they came predusted?? that ain't right! - Sir Shuping is just sir
We used to use layers of dust as one of the deselection criteria, so I hear...you're missing valuable information ;). - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Haha, I'm okay with missing that particular type of information, in this case. - Marie
Zamms
I HAVE NEWS.
DO YOU? - RepoRat
I DO! - Zamms
is it the news i think it is? - kendrak
are you becoming president?? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Kendra: It's not the news you think it is. Andrew: No, no, no, they're not THAT crazy! - Zamms
GOOD LORD LEAVE US HANGING MAN - kendrak
No? Why not?? It would be awesome! You could appoint Kendra and Jennifer as the first co-cabinets of Soccer Ministry! - Sir Shuping is just sir
I am building this up way too much... - Zamms
At this point you'd better have invented a flying car or something - lris from Android
wait wait Zamms invented a flying car?! WELL DANG, THAT SURE IS NEWS. - RepoRat
BREAKING NEWS: Flying car invented by FF regular. Film at 11! - Catherine Pellegrino
*runs over to Wikipedia to edit Zamms's page* - RepoRat
*posts it to Twitter* - Catherine Pellegrino
*starts a rumor that the car will have limited release, with ff receiving first purchase option* - Marie

You know what I like? Oreo-flavored Oreos. Big fan. - Hookuh Tinypants
i will admit the more i have of the lemon ones, the more i like them, but i mostly prefer the originals. or sometimes the golden ones. but all these other crazy ones? nah. - holly #ravingfangirl
Also in existence: watermelon. - Julian
Watermelon? That sounds no bueno. How are they? - Marie
I've tried the root beer float, actually have some in the kitchen right now. They're actually good! I don't know how they pulled it off with the cookie in the mix, but they smell and taste just like the real thing. - Christa
I love the lemon Oreos. I had Chips Ahoy with root beer float chips and they were pretty good. I'll try the root beer Oreos if they show up in Grocery Outlet! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The !emon ones were good I also had limeade and have pumpkin spice that I have not opened yet - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA

#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.

What's for supper tonight?
I want a nap for supper. I will not get one, though. - Julian
Frittata, if D gets off the couch to get the ingredients. - Marie
Not sure yet...have lots of veggies ..maybe a big salad - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
My sister has a seafood CSA share, so we are having clams linguine and maybe oysters if we can get them open. - Meg VMeg from Android
Clams linguine—oh, that sound good. - Micah
Hobo dinner over the bonfire: beef, potatoes, carrots, onions, lotsa' garlic, brussel sprouts, olive oil, and Penzey's Mural of Flavor and 33rd & Galena! Seriously. So much garlic. Can't wait to eat it! - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Based on th fridge contents maybe a grilled cheese ... Haven't checked the bread situation yet though. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Dunno. Something with rice probably - Rodfather from Android
Hopefully tacos. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
OYSTERS WERE ACHIEVED - Meg VMeg from Android
Take-out BBQ and tater salad. Beans and green salad. - Kirsten from Android

Holly's favorite Anna
I'm looking for someone based in the US who could do a workshop like this one: http://www.uksg.org/event...
Marie? Galadriel? - Holly's favorite Anna
That sounds fun (esp if G and I did it together). At what venue did you have in mind? - Marie
Ooh. Can I get in on this? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Maybe a panel? If so, I would be interested, too. - Joe
we have the best community ever, just sayin'. - Marie
Not a panel. Workshop. No more than two leaders for the sake of logistics and fitting everything into 4 hours with a break, and it would be a post-conference for NASIG in late May. And... I totally understand if G doesn't want to do it, given that. - Holly's favorite Anna
A great community indeed! I love the concept of this workshop, it's really needed and fantastic - I can't commit right now, but will think about it for sure! - Galadriel C.
Ah if only 2 then Marie & G should go for it. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Oh rats, I'll be out of the country at the end of May (hopefully). - Marie
Anna - what's you time frame? - Galadriel C.
I'd like to get a commitment nailed down in the next few weeks, as I'm planning to use our workshops as additional promotion for the call for concurrent session proposals ("come speak at our conference! see, we have awesome content you can add to!). But, that doesn't mean I need a fully fleshed out workshop program by then. Just a commitment to doing it. - Holly's favorite Anna
Jennifer Leffler on Twitter has also expressed an interest. - Holly's favorite Anna
I want to watch!! also: LSW meetup opportunity!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
If you're stuck, please allow me to recommend Taryn Resnick, head of e-resources at MfPOW. She's sharp! - RepoRat
If any of you who have expressed interested can get me a proposal in the next few weeks, do it. :) - Holly's favorite Anna
May I pass this on to Taryn? - RepoRat
Please do! - Holly's favorite Anna
BTW, anybody who is interested in proposing something, contact me at anna dot creech at the gmails. I really want to make this workshop happen! - Holly's favorite Anna

OHAI low pressure system. i feel you.
Oh, boo. - Marie

Lost power :( - Mark Trapp
bah! we did early this afternoon for about half an hour or so, but it's back already. hope yours isn't out too long! - holly #ravingfangirl
They're saying by 7:30 here, but they usually overestimate, so here's hoping. Always find it weird it's possible to lose power via moderate winds in a city: would think all the power would be buried or there'd be enough redundancy. Though at least here they try to fix it immediately; remember back when I lived in upstate NY they'd just wait until the storm was over to even attempt it. - Mark Trapp

If you were going to introduce someone to David Foster Wallace's writing, with which book/essay would you begin?
I would start with the cruise essay and/or the state fair essay ("A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" and "Getting Away from Already Being Pretty Much Away from It All") If they don't think those are funny/engaging, they probably won't like most of his work. - Steele Lawman
Seconding the cruise essay. - Meg VMeg
I really like the tennis essays, but I don't know that those would be a good intro for people who don't know the sport. Also, good list here: http://tetw.org/David_F... - Kirsten
Cruise essay, for sure. - laura x from iPhone
Just got the "Supposedly Fun..." book at our Library Book Sale, and any really any of the essays are good introductions. - Elizabeth Brown
The first thing I read by him was "The Depressed Person", and it totally slayed me, but that's probably a risky first read. - JffKrlsn from Android
I second the recommendation of either the cruise essay or state fair essays. I got into his writing in a completely different way but I think those would be good choices for those who never read him. - MariWeaver
If you go to the Harper's site, they want you to be a subscriber to get access to the first-published forms of those stories.

Academic Librarians - Are you following YikYak?

Nope. - LB: Water Witch from Android
Who in the what now? - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
I checked it out earlier this year and then uninstalled it after a few days. Creepy place full of douchey bros. Not a cool place. Lots of k-12 schools are banning it because of the heartache it can cause. For example: http://nymag.com/thecut... When I tried it in Manhattan, I found tons of awful posts from NYU and Columbia students. - Stephen Francoeur
good lord. based on that article, wouldn't touch it with the proverbial ten-foot pole. - RepoRat
oh crap...i did hear about yikyak and blocked it out of my mind because the early press on it was so poor, much of the same reasons for what occurred in the article stephen linked to - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yep. What I see when I'm at home (local high schools, other colleges) is different than what I see at work. It's interesting/useful to see what's going on when they're having real dialogue there, but the high school age stuff is abhorrent. - Julie Kane
Tl;dr me about this, please? - Marie
YikYak is an app that uses your device location to show you anonymous posts by people in your vicinity (not sure of the range, maybe a few miles or so). You can post your own anonymous comments. - Stephen Francoeur
Merci - Marie from iPhone
I am now. Second post is a vulgar joke that mentions the library. - Steele Lawman
I can't even handle monitoring mentions on Twitter, I'm pretty sure this will kill me. - Meg VMeg
I downloaded to check it out. It's somewhat amusing. - Andy
I just checked it out. Two posts I could intervene in, but a whole lot of tedium, annoyance, and way too much blowjob advice. Still trying to figure out if it's worth spending time there in the building.... I'm also wondering if my commenting (Hey, just sent a building monitor to shush that noise!) will be seen as helpful or creepy. Because being seen as the creepy one on YiKYak would be pretty awful? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
But you're being creepy anonymously, so nobody knows it's you specifically. ;) - kaijsa
If you want to know when people are having sex in the library, there's an app for that - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Took a look. Not going back. - John Jackson from iPhone
I look at it occasionally. I'd check it more if it had a search function so I could search for library mentions...unless it does, and I just don't realize it. - YvonneM
I am not an academic librarian, but I do read it here occasionally. Iowa kids are actually remarkably sweet probably 80% of the time. Once in awhile they're very funny. The rest of the time they are racist sexist assholes, but I was expecting that to be most of the posts, so I was pleasantly surprised. - laura x
Today they are tired, have advice about how you should make sure you have lots of time to sleep if you take Tylenol PM, lest you miss class and Michelle Obama, are unsure of how to tell people they like them, and have discovered, by means of pH strip, that a pumpkin spice latte is basic. Also one said "whoa, I should go to the library more often! I actually studied." - laura x
"Basic" is relatively recent slang for me. So I looked it up on Urban Dictionary (because I am old and librarian) and found that the definition there is 8 years old. I'm so basic. - Steele Lawman
Well, you know, I'm so basic I am down with any joke made at the expense of a pumpkin spice latte. - laura x
Tried it. Not big here. Picked up only stuff from international schools. - aaron from Flucso
