Today’s WrAnyMo offering is a review of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” by Jane Austen and Set Grahame-Smith (2009). Very few, mild spoilers.
I didn’t leave enough time to blog today. I was busy dancing among TEI elements and figuring out how the XML editor, <oXygen />, works. Also: eating strawberries, cataloging one or two books, learning about dinosaurs (via cataloging) and doing more research on bird watching iPhone apps. Things you may have been lucky enough to […]
A negative side effect of Blog Every Day in April: I’m constantly reminded of how dull I am. And now the rest of the world knows it too. Fail. Well, for those still following along at home, here are some highlights from my weekend. The style sheets for the Starrynight Productions website were magically fixed. […]
I have it. It is in my hands. For good reason, gentle reader, I will not be posting at length today. There are useful skills to be learned from the zombie-repelling Bennett girls. I must study. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in posession of brains must be in want of more […]
At the last Technical Services Department meeting, I heard an administrator talk about (among other things) the future of libraries and cataloging. She mentioned e-books and how this format may change the publishing industry. Since then, I’ve seen a thread on the AUTOCAT listserv on how to catalog a Kindle- the actual device- so that […]

I had a good day today. I talked to family back home and then had a very nice dinner with Ann and David. Russell and I met their new mut Lexi for the first time. Initially, she was very territorial and hard to approach but a few treats and a walk around the property later […]
After work yesterday, I walked to the library and grabbed some books and CDs. I picked up Melissa Marr’s books Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange, to read before the release of Fragile Eternity. I read Wicked Lovely awhile back and really enjoyed it. The heroine is intelligent and strong (although she doesn’t always know it). […]
