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 […]

Cataloging Life

Shiny News

I am very happy to report that I have just accepted the position of Metadata Specialist & Cataloger in the Indiana University Libraries Technical Services Department. This is a brand new position in the department and a promotion for me. Yes, Jen, you say, but what does the fancy title MEAN? Fam and friends, this […]

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 […]

Culture Libraries

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 […]


Note to Self

I’ve been feeling off lately. There are times when it is more intense than others. Changing my diet, regulating sleep and keeping a more positive attitude have helped but I still have… moments. And then I realized what my problem was. It’s the same problem I had last year but didn’t realize it and hence, […]


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.

Books Holidays Life

On Sunday

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 […]


Upcoming Reads

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). […]

Libraries on the Go (and We’re Losing the Mule)

I need to get this post out early so I’ll have time to prep and relax when I get home for tomorrow afternoon’s interview (wish me luck). This post probably won’t be very well crafted (as if yesterday’s post was well-crafted and meaningful!). There are, however, a few things going on in Library Land that […]


My Friend Pinky

My mind is a complete wasteland right now. I’m not whining- just stating facts. OK, that said, onto the post. … So, if you had a flying pink monkey, where would you keep it? Personally, I’d keep it in my non-running car. It would be able to come and go as it pleased of course, […]
