Ah the joy of working in a traditionally female profession around Halloween! Take your pick, ladies and gentlemen, do you prefer your objectification in the form of Sexy Librarian, or Old Lady Librarian? Here are the search results from yet another hunt for Librarian costumes. The first two you may familiar with, the last provides [...]
Ok, what happened? Whose fault is this? I came home to this message from my web host: I’m honored of course, thanks ever so much…but CUT IT OUT!
I got sent in as a pinch-hitter for this small local web conference for Higher Education. I’m listening to a keynote-speaker-who-shall-remain nameless reading Google’s mission statement. Which is interesting. At eight in the morning. Ok, this is interesting. He gets 36 work-related emails per hour at Google. The Google Book Search got a passing mention… [...]
What have I always said? Over and over? Do the research, people. Look it up! Well, the reason I always say this so I won’t keep making dumb mistakes. Like buying a USB cupwarmer that uses the wrong voltage. I knew you folks in the UK have funky electricity, but I didn’t know you have [...]
I love ebay. Look what I got for my desk at work. You are jealous, I can tell. All this for .01 BGP. Plus shipping. Lots of shipping. I might be able to melt small travel-sized candles on it, too. An office full of web developers starts to smell funny after awhile.

I haven’t worked at a reference desk for almost ten years, but I still get reference questions. I’m convinced that Librarians and Library Workers have some sort of radiant askability that compels people to ask us stuff. Like this confused gentleman here: I’m looking for photos of ‘The Avengers’… Alas, my friend, it’s Librarian Avengers, [...]
This is the second sexy librarian costume I’ve found. One more and it’s officially a trend. This one is especially flattering. They call it a “Sexy Secretary” SLASH “Sexy Librarian” costume. Because as you know, the two jobs are interchangeable. Or at least the outfits seem to be. I love love LOVE that librarians are [...]
I called in sick to work today, with a sore throat and general upper-respiratory grossness. I spent the day lying on the couch with cats floating on pillows around me. Our two cats are huge wooly monsters. Rescued from cat-jail, they resemble bobcats more than housecats. Fortunately, they donâ€™t seem to know how huge and [...]
