Life, a Miscellany

These last two weeks, I’ve lacked inspiration and I’ve had little time to do much besides getting the new Starrynight website ready to go live. I still have a lot of content to move but I don’t anticipate the style and navigation to change drastically. Unless of course, some tells me that hate so-and-so and […]

In which I feel obliged to look back on the year 2009.


I Mean to imeem

I finally decided to give imeem a shot. It’s a social networking site, much like Facebook, for the extreme media lover. It allows you to upload, share and discover music, video, and photos, with the expected arsenal of social networking tools (friending, groups, embedding, etc.). A free imeem account allows you to upload your own […]

Stop and Smell the Flowers

If the announcement that I will be starting a new position didn’t tip you off, you might be able to deduce as much from my sudden rash of library-related posts. Over the last two weeks, my brain has been switched into overdrive. This is all well and good but I’m beginning to think that maybe […]

Professionals often hashtag conferences such as #ALAMW09 (American Library Association Midwinter Meeting 2009). I’ve seen a few professors encourage their students to get accounts […]

Human? Or…

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 […]


McGee Movie Night

Russell and I watched Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner this evening. In trying to decide what to watch, Russell read off cast lists and DVD captions to entice me. He didn’t have to go much further than “Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier and Katharine Hepburn” for me to say, “Oh, oh, that one!” I was NOT […]

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 […]


Down on the Farm

I found myself wondering about the Lassie TV series (1954-1973) today. It’s been ages since I’ve seen the re-runs but what I remember most was that Mrs. Martin dressed rather smartly for a farmer’s wife and that the telephone operator’s name was Jenny. Here are a few more disorganized thoughts on the show. I did […]
