Happy Halloween! October 31, 2018

I hope everyone is having a nice October. The weather here has gone cold and rainy, though slightly better for Trick or Treating tonight. I spent last weekend volunteering for Halloween parties. Then went to closing day of the Ohio Renaissance Festival. Despite the weather, it was a very good time. I even attended the final Pub Sing, which was a first for me.

At work, I have begun the Usability Testing with a small handful of students, and am still trying to recruit more. This week I have two conferences, as well. Fall Ohio IR Day (Institutional Repository) and the 2018 ALAO (Academic Library Association of Ohio) annual conference.

Oh, I forgot to post about the MLK Library grand opening. It was really lovely, and I enjoyed listening to Martin Luther King III speak. The building is really well done, too. I am likely to spend some NaNoWriMo time there.

I actually listened to a book this week: Feed the Dragon by Sharon Washington. And read two volumes of Jessica Jones Alias comics and started The Wicked & The Divine volume 1.

Until next time. 🙂

Birthdays and Wedding, oh my! July 24, 2018

So many Birthdays this week down here and around the world. Looking at you in Scotland, Marianne. One party and two dinners in the last couple of days. Plus my brother’s wedding this weekend. So much going on! Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday and going to Cedar Point on Sunday.

Work is awesome. I gave another presentation today, and got compliments for it. I am spending a lot of time scanning archival materials. Cscctest.omeka.net is one of the options I am trying out.

I’m up to Skin Game in the Dresden Files, but I have also listened to M.A.S.H. ( and the Hamilton soundtrack) and am now listening to Penric’s Demon by Bujold.

Happy Birthday, Aunt Terri! January 27, 2018

Long week, full of things. Most of them were not my things, but most were crazy and/or draining. I love my friends and family, and I’m happy that I can be there for them. And I appreciate all they do for me. One of the major me things that did happen, was a friend helped me build a new gaming desktop, to put on the desk another friend had given me. So, Yay!

WordPress says this is the second time I’ve used that Post Title… I’m really surprised it hasn’t been more often. Work went alright, mostly quietly.

Finished Dune, and started Knife of Dreams on audio. If I’m not going to finish Reading it, I might as well listen to it. 🙂

Barfleet party this weekend, with More Gaming. So, I’m looking forward to that.

It’s Beginning to Look… December 15, 2016

… a lot like Christmas. The librarian brought in garland to decorate the office today. The snow is sticking quite firmly to the ground. Parties have begun for the holidays. I’m halfway through present shopping/making and am still trying to sort out the family visit. Looking forward to seeing my nieces and nephew, and brother and sis-in-law.

My jobs are hot and cold. The library’s heat is running quite well, though I hear the A/C turned on yesterday when it got warm enough. Sprawl, however, is a bit on the chilly side. I have a space heater for my work area, and the office folk turned on the big blower in the back when they realized I was there yesterday (they didn’t have anybody on their side of the warehouse). I finished the collection I was working on, and Tomorrow I start the new collection that just arrived.

Instead of TV/Netflix at home, I’ve been binging on Dresden Files audio books again. At Sprawl, I’ve gotten through Harm None, and now I’m onto Captain’s Fury. Though, today I did watch the new Ghostbusters and the newest James Bond – Spectre. Hoping to see Rogue One this weekend.

Hope everyone has a great, and safe, holiday season.

Happy Independence Day! July 4, 2016

With the hope that it won’t take an alien invasion to bring the world together some day soon…

Quiet week for me, fighting a cold. No word from my applications, nothing much to apply for. Another round of checking when this is done. Not a bad week, just a quiet one.

Christmas cards/presents have started to arrive – kitchen gear and money for cons. Thank You! So, I’m now officially registered for DeCon, ConCoction, and MarCon in 2016. 🙂  I think some more might be spent on movie tickets – still need to decide when I’m seeing Star Wars.

Too Much October 15, 2015

Had a great visit with Mom this past weekend. We met a lot of children’s authors and a couple adult authors at the Ohioana Book Festival. We got books for the kids, and two new novels for me by S. Andrew Swan. Liking the Dragon Princess so far. Unreliable thief author, so my kind of book. 🙂  We had a nice visit to the Ashville Viking Festival, as well. And I have a new piece of pewter – Nils Holgerssons on the back of a goose. We also did All the Shopping, for all the little things I’ve been putting off, and some more adulting clothes for getting and keeping a new job. And shoes, always in need of new work shoes, hoping these last a little while.

This week is finals. One is done and turned in, the other I’m working on today, and hope to have done by early Sunday evening. The former being a group project, the latter being a case study. So close to done! And then a month off for all things Fleet. MarCon next week, and Summer Games a couple weeks later. Going to be a busy month. 🙂
