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.
Warning: I am clearly overdue for an extremely angry rant. Arguments below are admittedly not well-thought out (hence angry). Tomorrow, I may rescind half of what is here. Blog. Personal rant space. Angry. RAWR! According some recent speculation out on the interwebs, every person in India (estimated population 1.17 billion people) is NOT entitled to […]
Posts that Might Have Been
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 […]
The Weekend, an Account
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. […]
Zombies Ate Darcy. The End.
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 […]
E-books, Where are You Taking Us?
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 […]
My day was uber-relaxed. After a morning walk with Tim, I got back to the apartment and, in spite of my best efforts to the contrary, I ended up taking a mid-morning nap on the couch. I actually felt better afterward though, unlike my usual experience of waking up feeling like a zombie. I finished […]
Don’t Let Friends Blog Tired
Ugh, put this off again. OK, focus Jen. Spouse Creature and I went out to partake of a carb-filled dinner this evening. We came back and I decided to take a forty minute walk in the last of the sunlight. By the time I got back from my walk, I was tired and the laundry […]
And Then There was Distraction
I’m going through my GoogleReader bookmarks again. Here are a few stuffs I found. Dirty Librarian Chains. There are quite a few unique-looking necklaces and bracelets (and rings and earings too). They are out of my price range but fun to look at. I like Archive, Due Date, Publication and Source Bracelet in particular but […]
No Zombies for Me
Both Barnes & Noble and Borders were out of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It is back ordered at the moment, the publisher can’t keep up with demand. Ah well. B&N will give me a call when it is in, if I don’t order it online first. Yep. That’s all. As you were.
