Finally went through all the papers that have been piling up in my office for a couple years and did a few loads of shredding while I was at it. A clean office and living room have been accomplished this weekend. As well as watching Endgame, and having a nice long walk and some good exercise.

At work, we are heading into finals, so there’s a therapy dog visiting this week and next. I have a conference down town for half the week on Best Practices for digital preservation/repositories. Really looking forward to that. I am also working on putting together a webpage to hold the English 1100’s Open Textbook project. (And arguing with onClick tooltips that they requested.)

Heading into a busy May. Mother’s Day, MarCon, and Barfleet Summer Games. And I have the puppy and kitty for four days. Yay puppy and kitty, boo long drive in to work. 😉

In audiobooks, I have taken a break from Wishes and Wellingtons (Julie Berry), and am attempting First Grave on the Right (Darynda Jones), but I am not sure I’ll make it through. I also have Provenance (Leckie) waiting in the wings, as well as Dragonlance’s Vinas Solamnus (J. Robert King) because Liam O’Brien narrates it. In comics, I finished this run of DIE and got halfway through Alias v. 3. I’m a bit overwhelmed with all the comics on my list, so not sure what will be next. Endgame was spectacular, though.

Happy Easter! April 21, 2019

I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter weekend. I had a nice time with friends on Friday. Now, I am spending time relaxing at home, cooking tasty dinner.

My work week went well. My presentation on Thursday was smooth, and decently attended for the small room we had. The rest of In Service was informative and even fun. I ended the day with an escape room type game that we succeeded at with three minutes to spare. On Friday, we started making more archival plans and I poked through some more photos and even found some pre-VCR tapes.

In reading, I got a bit further in the Alias comic series. In listening, I’ve been waiting on the library, so have gone through couple Audible exclusives. One on Marie Curie, and another strange genie fantasy that I’m not quite done with.

Any rate, hope everyone is well and enjoying Spring, if it has found you yet.

Spring Days April 13, 2019

I don’t know what to say this week. I attended the celebration of life of one of my oldest best friend’s father this week. He was much loved by all who knew him, but his body had grown too weary. He passed, as we all might wish, surrounded by family and friends. And on Thursday we gathered to remember him and tell stories of what he meant to us. It is a reminder to live every day to its fullest, and to live with love and joy.

Spending this evening doing just that, at a toga party with friends, testing out non-alcoholic drinks for our convention next month. (MarCon)

This first week of April has slipped past. Happy Birthday to Mom, albeit belated by the time of this post. Hope you had a lovely week!

It’s been dreary and rainy down here, but getting warmer bit by bit. Might actually be spring soon.

My excitement about the newly hired Systems Librarian has borne out. She is friendly and motivated and we already have Big Plans for the archives.

I am finished with my big study and the fruits are beginning to ripen. I just need a bit more feedback from my team, and permission from Legal, then I can do all the things! This also will include writing a proper professional research paper to be published somewhere, giving a presentation with a partner at In Service, and giving a solo presentation at a statewide conference this summer.

In fun things, I have done more drawings with PubDraw and Babs Tarr:

And the Kickstarter reached the final goal! A full season of animated CR will be released late next year!

In reading/listening, I finally finished The Night Circus. I also finished Friday Black and The Prisoner of Limnos. The first issue of Dungeons and Dragons: A Darkened Wish comic was good, eager for more. And I finished the Captain Marvel volume I was reading for movie background. Next up, finishing the final issue of DIE, another gaming-based comic, and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.
