My cousin's 18 year old son died suddenly last week. I am not close to her at all, but this is hitting me very hard.

It still counts as one glass, right? - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

If I were in charge of Rectify I would have fired that script supervisor multiple times. Good grief.

Roughly left to right: queso, beans, salsa, chips AND totopos, enchiladas suizas (but they do it with mole poblano), an almond mole dish called PUNTAS DE FILETE A LA NORTEÑA, shrimp quesadilla, nachos - Meg VMeg
It's seriously amazing. You had to wait 40 minutes for a table, so we got everything to-go in 15. - Meg VMeg
So wise. I ate lunch there once. Good stuff. - laura x from iPhone

oh my god we are out of martini olives.
its the end of the world!!! panic!!!! - Sir Shuping is just sir
i had to have my martini with these lame lemon-scented olives on the side WHICH IS NOT THE SAME THING, NOT AT ALL. - Marie
lemon scented? they weren't soaking in pledge were they? - Sir Shuping is just sir
For those curious, I kept the pizza from sticking to the stone by liberally flouring dough, & covering the stone with crunched up Triscuits
Corn meal, Triscuits, whatever works! - Sucker DJ LB
Yup. It must have worked. The pizza slid right off when I took it out if the oven. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Genius. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I had read somewhere that breadcrumbs can be used instead of cornmeal in a pinch. Didn't want to put Corn Flakes on my pizza (which is what I use as breadcrumbs in meatloaf), so I chose crackers instead. Triscuits happened to be the kind of crackers I had (Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper Triscuits, no less) - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
I really like those new Triscuit flavors. The dill is reaaaaallly tasty. </threadjack> - Marie
The Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper were a little to peppery for my taste, but they were still pretty good. Haven't tried the dill. I do like Triscuits a lot, though. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Katy S
So, which one of y'all will enter this giveaway and review the book for us?
"Imagine a library — a very special one run by a librarian whose only concern is pleasing her patrons. In fact, this librarian will stop at nothing to service her readers. To that end, she has carefully collected a fantastic and fantasy-filled set of stories guaranteed to satisfy literary lusts in The Sexy Librarian's Big Book of Erotica. This voracious volume is simply bursting at the binding with amorous archives and bibliophilic bliss; it is a veritable dictionary of desires, with stories by top eroticists Rachel Kramer Bussel, Tamsin Flowers, and Salome Wilde, as well as Rose Caraway, the sexy librarian herself." - Katy S
...I nominate anyone other than myself to read this one. I'm not sure I could make it through the book with out dying from embarrassment - Sir Shuping is just sir
It would have to be an ebook and anonymous review :) - Christina Pikas from iPhone
nope. regardless of the quality of the erotica, I'd just get pissed off at all the total cluelessness on display about librarianship. - RepoRat
A porn book full of typos, would that be erratica? - Betsy
(Betsy wins.) - Sucker DJ LB
Yay! - Betsy
Betsy! - Marie
IN A HELMET!!!!!!! - Zamms from iPhone
Dippin Dots is weird. - Marie
Policy question: Do any of you have wording in a policy or two about indemnification? Basically, if the staff member follows the policy, they won't be punished for the outcome? If so, could you shoot me that wording either here or at ijastram at gmail?
More information: we're developing an emergency plan that asks staff at all levels to make decisions during stressful situations, and we'd like something in there about how they won't get in trouble for acting according to the plan just for everyone's peace of mind. Are there policies that require decision making at your institutions that build in protections for the people making the decisions? Or do you have other policies that say "you can only question the outcome of the process if you think the process wasn't followed?" - lris
I think I see what you're getting at, and I think it would be a laudable thing to include in a policy of this sort; I just don't have any examples to hand. - Catherine Pellegrino
Yeah, the key here is that we're trying to encourage staff at all levels to make stressful decisions based on a framework for action. No two emergencies are alike, so we can't spell out what to do in every situation, so as part of helping people feel empowered to act rather than hesitate, we want those who aren't used to making this kind of decision feel extra super safe in doing so. - lris
We don't have such language but if I were constructing such a thing I might call our campus Public Safety office or Office of Risk Mgmt to ask what phrasing they would suggest. - Marie
Seconding the advice to talk to Risk Management or Legal. I think what you want is something like the Good Samaritan laws that cover emergency responders, for example. - Rachel Walden
If I send you a thoughtfully worded email and you reply back to me, "Thanks Kathy!" just know that I'm going to sit here, fuming, for quite a while.
That's good to know, June. - ellbeecee
>_> - Marie
Hope to hear from you soon, Mary. *ducks* - Julian
Why so touchie, Marge? - Joe
I got called Mary in a meeting last night - maʀtha
Galadriel C.
Some colleagues and I are working on a Massive Analysis Project (MAP) of Scopus and Web of Science. While the report will be used for internal decision-making, we think it may be of interest to others and we would like to rework it into an article. What OA journal might make a good home for such a topic?
what's a MAP? I haven't run into the term before. - RepoRat
What kind of analysis? Would make sense? Or, JASIST allows people to post green OA. (Author's Pre-print: green tick author can archive pre-print (ie pre-refereeing) Author's Post-print: green tick author can archive post-print (ie final draft post-refereeing)) - Joe
Practical Academic Librarianship might be interested in it for how it was used for decision-making. and JLSC too, depending on the decisions being made. Portal? - jambina
CRL is also now OA and might be a great choice. - Sarah
MAP is just the acronym we came of with for "Massive Analysis Project" so that we could cleverly say things like "MAPing for the future. It really just means a whole bunch of data - as many different kinds as we could get to show/demonstrate use and types of use. Our report is 17 pages so far w/o appendices and includes quantitative user data (COUNTER, ILL, A-Z list clickthroughs, vendor-provided analytics, select use by department and population, etc.) as well as user-reported qualitative data. - Galadriel C.
Thank you very much for the ideas! I'll know more about how the analysis will be used for decision making in a couple of weeks. - Galadriel C.
I'll second CRL -- I think they'd eat this up. - RepoRat
And we finished our report! 23 pages of report + appendices = 50+ pages. I'm very happy it's Friday. - Galadriel C.
I look forward to reading about this project. - Marie
i want to see it, too. - Christina Pikas
the main bibliometrics journals are elsevier, springer, and wiley... sad to say. so can archive pre-print but not green oa final :( - Christina Pikas
Protip: Do NOT get gravel embedded in your knee.
Too late, have had some black specks of cinders stuck in there since I was 12. :( Pro-tip: Do a better job than I did at getting said gravel out of your knee. - SAM
Wow, that's sort of neat actually. I'll check later tonight. I think I cleaned up decently though. It started gushing blood so I didn't want to check any further for the time being. - Miriella
Ouch. I had to take a stiff bristled nail brush to mine and still no luck. How did you acquire this gravel? - SAM
OW what! Really! It burns so much right now I don't even want to take any alcohol to it yet. I was walking to work and stepped on a stupid fat stick. Lost my balance and took a knee. Or really, smashed my knee into the ground. - Miriella
noooooooooooooooooo' - MAMA VAL#GOSCARLETTGO
Hydrogen Peroxide will help just as much as alcohol and won't burn as much in my experience. - SAM
Like SAM, I also have a gravel chunk in the knee from a fall as a kid. Sorry this happened. Stupid fat stick, getting in your way! Do your best to clean it when the sting wears off a bit. - Marie
I peeled off the gauze and it's still bleeding. Also, I can't tell if that's gravel or clumps of skin. LOL. *covers it back up* - Miriella
My hydrogen peroxide has been expired for seven years but it still fizzed! No gravel, just some random chunks of skin. Yum. - Miriella from Android
Speakers - Charleston Conference | Charleston Conference -
Help me not be mad but instead positive and constructive. Certainly we know women who have opinions about issues in book and serial acquisitions to suggest to the conference directors. Please list them here and I will send the email with names for them to consider. - Marie from Bookmarklet
well, my first thought was Jenica, but I don't think that would work :) Amy Buckland? Barbara Fister? - ~Courtney F
Who is Gah? - Joe
Great interview today with Frances Pinter of Knowledge Unlatched: Liza Daly of Safari Books Online. Melanie Schlosser. Maura Smale. Allison Brown (Library Publishing Toolkit, SUNY Geneseo). Patricia Uttaro, also of Library Publishing Toolkit. - RepoRat
Barbara, Pat, or Pamela from the Lever Initiative: - RepoRat
Kate Pitcher, interim director at SUNY Geneseo, who could speak to the SUNY Open Textbooks, Library Publishing Toolkit, and their decade-long institutional shift from collection building to resource sharing. - Jenica
Sue Polanka of No Shelf Required? (Haven't heard her, though). - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Kathleen Fitzpatrick of MLA, though I don't know, has she spoken there before? - RepoRat
Maria Bonn. Meredith Kahn because - RepoRat
Wonderful ideas, thank you. Any other suggestions? I will send the email before I leave for the day. - Marie
Well, I would be mad *and* constructive about this :) I would add Shana Kimball who works for the New York Public Library and Unknowledge Unlatched and was previously at U of Mich: - copystar
email sent. - Marie
Thanks for this! - copystar
yes, thank you. - RepoRat
Thank you Marie! - Galadriel C.
Wow, two of the committee already wrote back, thanking me (us) for the suggestions. They'd like me to now put together topics/formats for these speakers. Uh, CAN DO. I'm thinking broad strokes here: Alternative publishing mechanisms (panel or single presenter); Publication length considerations (given Maize and SAGE's new 100 Questions series, it seems that shorter monographs are on the rise) (panel). What else would you suggest? - Marie
The elephant in the room is usually reward mechanisms, whether credit or tenure/promotion. Fitzpatrick could certainly speak to that; so could anybody working on OA monographs. - RepoRat
Lettie Conrad at SAGE is fantastic on discoverability and related issues. - Roger Schonfeld
Palgrave has been pushing their Pivot monographs, in the vein of shorter publications. I think Springer might be considering something similar. - Holly's favorite Anna
Morgan and Claypool has had short monographs for some time. Also from Oxford, - Joe
More great ideas. Thanks, LSW! I'm headed back to email to share with them. - Marie
Late brainstorm: Caroline Edwards, OLH is pretty dang ambitious. - RepoRat
i second Caroline Edwards! - jambina
Just a quick note of thanks for all your help. They're moving our ideas forward to figure out where to insert them into the schedule. - Marie
Well done, Marie! - Jenica
Marie wins the internet today! - RepoRat
Most excellent! - Galadriel C. from Android

Scrolled through my feeds, saw TexMex photos. Now want TexMex. I blame @hollysue .
If I don't get a taco soon I'm going to be 100% Bitchy on that quiz. - Marie
i haven't been able to fulfill my craving yet either, marie, if that helps at all. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
My body played nasty tricks on me yesterday. Glad to be able to sit up and keep my eyes open today.
Bodies are stupid. I'm glad you are upright today. - Marie
ooh, and here comes the optical migraine. Fun times. - lris
I love our new grill. Today: Bacon wrapped taters, turkey burgers, and on the side a huge helping of cauliflower. #nomnomnom
*gets in the car and starts driving* - Big Joe Silence
Did you grill the cauli? If so, tips on how to do that? I'd give it a try but have no idea what to do. - Marie
Nope, Marie, that was the only thing that was not grilled. Simply steamed and served with a bit of ranch dressing, in my case, plain in her case. - Uli
We might have to try grilling it sometime, though. Maybe keep it in fairly large chunks, nuke it a little bit to start, then finish off on the grill? I dunno. - Kirsten
You had me at bacon. - Melly
roasted cauliflower in the oven is tasty. i don't see why you couldn't do the same thing on the grill? big chunks, coated in olive oil with some salt and pepper. on one of those vegetable grill pans - Christina Pikas
Maybe our Brussels sprouts will work, too. Might have some field testing to do. - Uli
I volunteer as tribute (taste tester). - Marie
Bacon wrapped taters? Intrigued! - Heleninstitches
Marie: I'll let you know time and date for the festivities. Helen: Very easy. Poke them taters and soak them for a while, wrap a slice of bacon around, grill in aluminium foil (not aluminum). 20 min or so, depending on size. Done. Heavenly. - Uli

You know, that Ingram Coutts Innovation Award thingy... - Joe
A wonderful recent graduate died in a tragic swimming accident yesterday. You think this kind of thing can't happen to a smart, talented athlete, but I guess it can.
