Cunning Tales from a Systems Librarian
þ So now you’ve got that in-person interview!

Fanciful Delights

þ If you came of age in the ’90s, you may remember Sassy magazine. Someone put together a list the complete list Sassy’s Cute Band Alert! Oh. Youth.
þ Depending on the time of day, and who you ask, I’m either 5’10 or 6′. They say you’re taller in the morning than you are in the afternoon (though finding a legit site to support this seems to be a tad difficult), which tends to explain the difference (and don’t get me started on people lying about their height either). Having good posture, according to The Art of Manliness, is essential for confidence and looking trim. HRM.
þ While I, too, sometimes gravitate to the obscure, this fellow takes it to a whole ‘nother level.
þ I met my first online -> in person boyfriend in 1995. Who knew I was such a trend setter?
þ I’m really into social history, the more obscure (sense a theme here) the better — can you imagine being this coroner in the 1900s?
þ I tried to bring hugger-mugger back into circulation, but alas, it has not been successful.
þ Now that I know how to take a torc on and off, I obviously need one.
þ Ever wanted to give your books leather covers? Here you go.
þ If I had £10,000, I would buy this
þ This needs no further introduction: Americans bought more legal pot than Girl Scout cookies in 2015
þ In Celebration of Old-School LiveJournal (Just a FYI, my LiveJournal account is still active.)
þ I’m a big proponent of self-care, so anything in that realm is totally helpful
þ Also add in: cable split jacks, Bob Dole, slider boxes, analog cell phones
