busy, busy, busy

It's been crazy busy here, mostly with work but also with rehearsals and things like New Employee Orientation (NEO). Clever, eh? heh. anyway, I still have some articles to finish and I am way behind on them so I'll leave you with this. I keep seeing ads for online dating sites all over tribe and gmail, etc. Let me just say that the people in those ads DO NOT use these services. They don't need to. And if they do need to, well think about what else must be wrong with their personalities or mental health if they aren't finding dates in the real world. You are not going to find an Angelina or a Brad look-a-like on Match or eHarmony.

'nuff said.

I, Coriander book review

I just finished reading a Young Adult book called I, Coriander by Sally Gardner. If you like fantasy and historical fiction, this is an excellent combination of the two.

Coriander is writing a memoir of her life and the discoveries she makes along the way about her mother and her mother's people. Set in the time of Cromwell and the upswing of Puritanism in England, there is conflict between the Good Folk, people who are accused of sorcery, and the Puritanical force taking control of the country. There is a great blend of fantasy, and the mystical parts mix well with the "real world" parts so well that disbelief in other worlds is easily suspended. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

Now I am on to reading Terry Pratchett's take on the Pied Piper tales and continuing to read about Amelia Peabody Emerson's exploits and mystery solving in Egypt.

Happy Valentine's Day

It's been real busy around here between work and trying to fix up the house a bit. I am also still writing for the magazine and am working on getting into graduate school soon. STRESS! I haven't even gotten to read much lately, which is a crime in and of itself. :)

On the library track, I am looking into the possibility of specializing in sequential art cataloging and preservation. For the layman, it's a fancy way to say I'll collect comics. :) There are two universities with sequential art (comics) libraries, so there is precedent. Of course I probably won't get to exercise the specialty that much, but it's worth a shot. :)
