Combo home office guest room ideas?
Houzz. Oh. - Laura Norvig
^ wow, I had never seen Houzz before. I usually get stuck dreaming at Joss & Main. - Marie
Joss & Main seems cool for awhile but then it is so limiting and such a hard sell. I think between Houzz and Pinterest I will get a lot of ideas! - Laura Norvig

learn from my mistakes, people. pantries are great until they are out of control. don't let your pantry get out of control.
my mind is tired because i did not read that as pantry at first - Sir Shuping is just sir
When you have cable, you spend a lot of time in the kitchen...when you sp... - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
What Sir said. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
x____x - Alix May
haha i suppose the advice would still apply. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
back on topic: i'm mostly annoyed with myself because ugh. wasteful. - holly #ravingfangirl
holly thinks panties are wasteful. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
Panties are unproductive and a waste of time? - Brent Schaus from iPhone
errybody knows i am anti-pants. - holly #ravingfangirl
I've been avoiding mine. I'm scared. - Katy S
totally understand that. hence why it was so out of control. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
Is your pantry equipped to outlast the apocalypse? - Andrew C (✔)
not anymore! - holly #ravingfangirl
I love this thread. - bentley
My spices are currently out of alphabetical order, which should give you some idea of how out of control my life is right now. #pantryhorrors - Marie
Oh, and Brent made me LOL. - bentley
This reminds me of a song my band wrote called Pantywaist. - Laura Norvig
on a more relevant note, just pretend you are moving. I instructed my husband to throw out EVERYTHING that was past due or remotely looked dusty/old/ - Laura Norvig
I recently went through the pantry. And was baffled at how much stuff was out of date WHEN I MOVED IT TO NV FROM IL! I felt really chastised at that point, and have been super careful about buying anything I might not need right now. (and I totally read it as panties, the first three times I read the post...) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
one of my big problems is seeing something and picking it up because i think i need it... only to get home and discover I already bought it. I am really trying to break myself of this and not go off-list too much. - holly #ravingfangirl
weird. the one in Chattanooga was out this past weekend. maybe it's a national pickle shortage? - ~Courtney F
That's not funny. - Miriella from Android
I don't like pickles, so... - ~Courtney F
Wut. And we're friends? - Miriella from Android
It's fine. It'll be fine. I'm mostly over it with Holly who doesn't like cilantro. It's fine. ;-) - Miriella from Android
this coming from the person who doesn't like cheese... - holly #ravingfangirl
I've got some homemade pickles in the fridge if anyone wants? - Marie
What holly said ;) - ~Courtney F
cost savings effort? - imabonehead
Cheese is terrible. You people are misguided. - Miriella
Wow. They just tweeted me back and said that an employee found glass in their pickles during prep, so they removed all pickles from all stores. Crazy. - Miriella from Android
huh. I suppose that would be an acceptable solution. - ellbeecee
our Five Guys was out when we went a couple of weeks ago, too, but they didn't tell us why. seems like an extreme response though. just get some new pickles. - Christa
A couple of weeks ago? Dayum. Seriously. Go down the street and get some alternate pickles in the meantime. - Miriella from Android
Qualtrics wranglers: how do I add a notes field to a yes/no question if someone would like to add comments? Do I need to make it a separate question?
Click on the answer choice (yes/no) then toggle the blue triangle to "Allow Text Entry" - Meg VMeg
^ like that. - Marie
Thank you!!!!! - Hedgehog
That's a seriously weird place to have it... I kept looking in the right hand column. - Hedgehog
Sometimes it's too fancy for its own good :) - Meg VMeg

The SSP has a call for participation out for it's conference in Arlington next May: The theme is The New Big Picture: Connecting Diverse Perspectives.
Am I crazy or is there scope here for an LSW submission/series of submissions. - John Dupuis
i'm in. (almost spoke at it last year but had to bail due to $$) - jambina
Although I'm raising this as a possibility, I'm not actually in. I'll be in Paris all next May.... - John Dupuis
you suck ; ) - jambina
Yes, I suck. Fortunately, I'll be in Paris so the sucking will be less, ah, painful. - John Dupuis
You suck this much... - Joe
Did not like ssp. Will not ever speak there again. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
<tiny threadjack> John, I expect to be in Paris in late May. Perhaps a meetup? - Marie
Wednesday is a combined day with NASIG, so plan to stay the whole week! Proposal deadline for NASIG is November 15th. - Holly's favorite Anna
<tiny threadjack> Marie, absolutely! My wife and I will be in Paris for all of May and then we're spending a week each in Amsterdam and Berlin before returning to Toronto. Note that children are being left behind.... - John Dupuis

Is there anything you've banned from your home?
(an ultimatum you're clearly given your SO &/or kids) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
All Disney TV/toy stuff and pumpkin anything. - Anika
Humans - Mo Kargas
Anything plaid. (Clothing and home décor items) - Janet
So kilts are right out. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Lilies - Marie
No, but it's a good idea, I'm in a banning mood. - Todd Hoff
9BEDBUGS ARE BANNED (i.e., furniture from the street) - Meg VMeg
I live alone, but firearms (unless you're an on-duty member of the police or armed forces,) which has cost me at least one friend who couldn't understand why I didn't want him carrying his unlicensed firearm (without a concealed carry permit) in my house. - Jennifer Dittrich
Skittles. - Jenny H. from Android
Chewing gum. - Maitani
Sex - yuvarlakkafa from Android
(Was not aware of the skittle ban. Was also not aware of skittles.) - Eivind
Also the words "stupid" and "idiot". - Melly - #TeamMarina
squidgy, sticky toys... - Marina's Godmother :-)
As the child of a hoarder, I've long banned newspapers from my house. Except now that I'm packing to move, I'm breaking my own ban & collecting newspaper for packing material :-P - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
For kids, I've banned the words gay and fat as insults. I've banned Grand Theft Auto and almost all first-person shooter games. I've banned pro wrestling from the TV. I've banned music by R Kelly & Chris Brown. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Durian and stinky tofu. - Jessie
Starmama: out of curiosity, which FPSes aren't banned? - Mark Trapp from iPhone
Whining. - Rodfather from Android
firearms, Durian (my wife laughs at me when i say this, no one can stop her), illicit drugs (i personally have no problem with pot or hash, but i'll be damned if i'll let any of my family get busted for possession cos someone came into our house with it), tracts, GOP/Tea Party ANYTHING, hate speech (wait, i think i just said that), physical violence for anything other than defensive purposes, modern "country" music, pan pipes, boy bands, auto-erotic asphyxiation, nuclear weapons, stinky cheese... - Big Joe Silence
Blurred Lines. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!
Nope. - Steele Lawman
Mark: Men in Black & Spawn & a dinosaur hunting one I forgot the name of. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Runs off to create a discussion list so people can figure out what lists to subscribe to. - Joe
*whimper* - RepoRat
You can now subscribe to ! - Joe
"apologies for any cross-posting" - Catherine Pellegrino
Now I have found the lists to subscribe to, how do I unsubscribe from this one? - Pete from FFHound(roid)!
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave [insert guitar solo / obligatory and yet gratuitous Gerry McK joke] - Steele Lawman
How do we feel about JoVE? As I dimly recall, they had some kind of super aggressive marketing tactics. Does anyone have it? Like it? Hate it?
bump - maʀtha
I've been telling a coworker about them, since he has been getting the sales pitch. They keep on saying that the U of Whatever up the street has it, why don't yous guys have it too? I don't think we should buy something just because someone else bought something. - Joe
Most of the conversation in the LSW has concerned the marketing tactics, not the actual merits of the resource itself. E.g., or or - Catherine Pellegrino
thank you, Catherine :) - maʀtha
They are aggressive in their marketing, but the product is very well received at my small, private liberal arts University. YMMV - Holly's favorite Anna
JoVE doesn't have materials relevant to most of the faculty I support, but I've shown it to folks who run labs and they loved it. - kaijsa
Yeah, the content is fabulous and science folks seem to love it. It's too bad the marketing tactics make them look bad. - Regular Amanda
Funny that marketing seems to hound them. That's all I heard about when I was at the Charleston Conf last week. - Marie
In the past couple of years the marketing has gotten better, but it bothers me greatly that faculty always have to pay for publication (more for OA, less for clos d) and then the library pays for access. I've been trying to negotiate no publication fees for MPOW's faculty of we subscribed w/o luck. - Galadriel C. from Android
Either I'm missing out on some of the marketing or I've become so immune I don't notice it as much. Until I saw it mentioned here, I really never noticed it, and certainly not enough to comment. My former CQ Press sales rep was more persistently annoying than anything else I've encountered. - Holly's favorite Anna
Galadriel, my consorita gets a refund for OA content that was paid by institutional authors from one of the publishers we work with. It's not much, though. - Holly's favorite Anna
I hadn't looked at the publishing fees. To be fair, good video production and editing costs something, but this looks kinda high. And why not just charge for production and not make OA way more expensive, just embargo for a while? - kaijsa

“I apologize for coming to your house and killing everyone. I’m an INTJ!”

Sarah G.
Just realized that I got my MLS in 2005 which is almost ten years ago which means I guess I'm not a newbie #librarian anymore. #libraries
I also got mine in 2005. *cheers* - Marie
I got mine in 06! - Sir Shuping is just sir
1995. Old ---> - LB snowed in. from Android
Oh, we're degree twins! And I still feel like a newbie. - lris from Android
*clutches her 2004 pearls at the shocking naïveté of these newcomers* - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
2004 here, and I hit that conclusion recently too. - ellbeecee
2016 here... ;) - WebGoddess
Class of 2005 fistbump! *g* - RepoRat
*shakes cane at the whippersnappers* - LB snowed in. from Android
2002! - Christina Pikas from iPhone
December 2000. *Just barely* last century. - bentley
*sobs into an afghan* - LB snowed in. from Android
but I did that whole internal auditor thing before library school, LB - ellbeecee
2000, but 37 when I got it, so old. - John Dupuis
January of 2005. Yup. - Hedgehog
December 2003. Close to 10 yrs at current job, which is weird. - ~Courtney F
August 2005. *fistbump* - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Oh, 1998. I'm with you, LB. Lemme just get mah ear-horn. - Julie Kane
Courtney, I'm coming up on 5 at GSU next summer, which astounds me. This is the longest I've ever worked anywhere. Or lived anywhere since undergrad. Every day is a new personal best. ;) - ellbeecee
2005, at the age of 35. - Pete
This would be a good article - class of 2005 ten years on. We all came into it right at the point where Web 2.0 started to get big and the idea of user generate content on the web (and the web itself and thus information) became much more prevalent and accessible. iPods existed, but not smart phones, really. No kindles. If someone said App I'd think they were trying to be cool in saying Apple. - Sarah G.
December 1999. I'm a 20th century librarian! - Stephen Francoeur
Obviously, I am not a librarian. "Masters of Library Sciences" (or whatever MLS stands for in this case) was the 3rd thing that came to mind when I saw the acronym. Major League Soccer was the first (which made absolutely no sense), and then the usage of MLS within real estate was the second (no idea what it stands for in that usage, though). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
(Multiple Listing Service - but our MLS' are the cool ones. ;) ) - ellbeecee
2002 at the age of 32! - Sarah from iPhone

"I mean, if they're going to take our words and put French accents to them, why are we so vulgar when we Anglicize their words that we adopt? Why shouldn't we say 'souffel' instead of 'su-flay?' ...
... I'll bet that little chicken on the scouring powder that's pronounced 'bonn ammy' drives em crazy." - Ferrol Sams, _The Whisper of the River_ - LB snowed in. from Android
(We say souffel at home.) - bentley
(We also say souffel at home.) - Marie
(We must be family!) - bentley
Nothing like some S-car-gots with the soufflé. - Janet

It has a little certain gee knee says coy. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
When I worked for engineers in Michigan, someone phoned in wanting to know about a project is Salt Stee Marie. :-) - bentley
^Hee! - LB snowed in. from Android
Somewhat related 30 second commercial: - Brian Johns
I'm still trying to figure out how to Americanize the pronunciation of hors d'oeuvre. I usually pronounce it "whores devours", but I'm sure there's a better way, sill view plates. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
At home, it's horse doovers (rhymes with hoovers). (Yes, I went to a French school. It just makes it funnier.) - bentley
I say "whore's doo-vrey" - Brian Johns
Dear international travelers: Is it important that I get a passport protector, to ensure that my identity info on the RFID chip is not stolen? This seems extreme to me.
You could also put foil in your normal passport carrier, if you use one. I wrapped my passport card because it doesnt close like a passport. - ~Courtney F from Android
Hey, that's a good idea. Thanks! - Marie
My dad is delivering the sermon at his church today in San Antonio. Nervous, excited for him. He should be starting the service soon. *sits on hands*
Did I know you're a PK, too? - Holly's favorite Anna
He's not a P. He's delivering a special sermon, in honor of Veteran's Day. He's telling the story about a guy he assisted in the burn unit when he returned from the front (Vietnam) with severe burns, lost limbs. This guy has gone on to do amazing things with his life and recently reconnected with my dad, his occupational therapist in the burn unit. The guy will be in attendance. I wish I could be there to see it. - Marie
Oh wow. I wish I could, too. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
He and Bobby ("the guy") got a standing ovation. He's so pleased and very tired. :D - Marie

my dream last night was a weird mix of shopping for new cars, and trying to decide between brisket and pork shoulder. #what
Brisketmobile. - Jennifer Dittrich
i would buy that car. - holly #ravingfangirl
that new-brisket smell. - Marie
holly #ravingfangirl
p.s. the answer is brisket. of course. brisket is always the answer. * *except when it's pork
thanks to you, i have just added pork shoulder roast to my grocery list. - Marie

Having dry skin sucks. You'd think with how dry conditions are that the blood wouldn't even well
my eye dr. just recommended coconut oil for skin - cooking grade stuff. Just slather it on - I've done it now for 2 days, and it's pretty good. But yes, dry skin sux. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
^^^ ooh, I bet you smell good. :) - Marie
no! no smell at all! and the oil absorbs about as well as most skin cream, so not greasy or anything either. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Do you have heartburn, acid reflux, sore throat, or hoarseness? That can be a hidden cause of dry skin. If that's a match then look up gerd, silent gerd, lpr. - Todd Hoff
also, my eye dr. said to drink more water. lots more. so I am trying. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Pit Bull ban. Yea! We need to get rid of that awful singer.
Aw, poor Mr. Worldwide. - Marie
Galadriel C.
Anyone here heading to Charleston this year?
Mememe! - Marie
doesn't look like it. someday, though! - RepoRat
Me! First time - excited! - Lisa Hinchliffe
Oh hooray! I'm going too and am also a first-timer. - Galadriel C.
Marie, Anna - any advice to first-timers? - Galadriel C.
Book your hotel room now if you haven't already. Actually, do that in May. Be selective about the concurrent sessions -- they don't filter much, and I found that too often the content was...lacking. Be prepared to get hit up often by vendors for meals. This seems to be quite the wine and dine conference. - Holly's favorite Anna
Thanks Anna! *off to look into hotels* - Galadriel C.
meetup? thursday eve, perchance? - Marie
Please be welcoming to our Ph.D student Mei Zhang, if you see her. She's the TA for my undergrad class and has been doing great work. - RepoRat
*Monday bump to ask about a meetup?* - Marie
A meet up would be awesome! I can't do dinner, but perhaps a Thursday 5ish pm happy hour? - Galadriel C.
Somewhere on the web there is a site that provides ideal(ized) library e-content (e-journal, specifically) licenses. I can't remember where the hell it is. Does anybody else?
Oooh, I think LibLicense might be it! SERU also useful! Thank you, Marie! - RepoRat
You're welcome. - Marie
I think that Marie is awesome. - Joe
I concur! - RepoRat
Ahahahaha I was actually remembering but hey, it's all good. - RepoRat
This is why we can't have nice things: Guy in front of me at self checkout bought full cart, $253 worth, of groceries. #firstworldproblems
That's just rude. - Marie
Good grief. Who has that kind of time and patience to run so many groceries through self checkout? - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Me. :D - Big Joe Silence from Android
I don't mind that... as long as it's not their first attempt at it. - Johnny from iPhone
I'm more bothered by novice self-checkers attempting to pay in cash with coins...or by cheque! - Big Joe Silence from Android
Just about everyone in self checkout was ringing up whole carts full of groceries; even the folks in the self checkout lanes that were explicitly marked "12 Items or Fewer." All I was trying to do was buy a single bottle of soda so I'd have something to drink during the kidlet's soccer game. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
We use self checkout a lot differently out here in my area. It's reserved almost entirely for people with only a handful of items. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Yeah, if you can't get in and out of the self-checkout in <5 minutes, you probably shouldn't be there. - NOT THE CRICKET
In the stores around here, we have self-checkout lanes with a conveyor belt for full carts and then ones with no conveyor belt and just a small countertop for hand baskets and hand-held stuffs. I personally prefer to take my full cart through the full cart self-checkout lane because I like bagging my own shit. And I'm fast. :) - Hookuh Tinypants

Thank you. - bentley
That's quite the battle, Mike. - Stephan from iPhone

Thanks everyone. I had been forgetting to use Twitter, so I thought I would leave the link as my last tweet for a while. Forgot it would filter here. Been busy managing the hotel/ restaurant/ zoo that is our home. Her condition is changing slowly, vitals are good. I'm good. - Mike Nencetti
Still thinking of you both. Hope your weekend is going well ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
We celebrated thanksgiving today, in case she is unable to later this month. Have a full house of family. We had a successful first week with her bedridden, keeping her clean and comphy.

Funny how writing something down is enough to make me feel better about it, even if no one is ever going to read it, and even if it doesn't really solve anything.

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

I can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures of the sunset tonight in LA. It’s amazing out there right now!

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.
