Elmo’s Song


I got tagged for a meme on Facebook and as my preference I’d rather post it here where I can find it again in a few months.  I think I’ve done this one before to be honest.  Most of the responses are nonsensical, but hey, there are some good songs here. These are the “rules”:…

30 Day Football (Soccer) Challenge


I participated in a meme on Tumblr called the 30 Day Football (Soccer) Challenge.  I took more than thirty days, but I completed the project.  Here are the links to my responses. Day 1 – Which team/s do you support? Explain why. Day 2 – Who is your current favourite player (you can only choose…

30 Days of Music


If you follow me on my Tumblog “Portals of Discovery” you’ll  know that I’m participating in a meme about music by answering a question about a song every day in October.  If you don’t this post will help you keep up with this fun project.  My first song went up today.  I’m going to consolidate…

12 Books in 12 Months Challenge


I discovered a book reading challenge via Gypsy Librarian about reading 12 books from one’s own collection within the next twelve months.  Since I almost always read books from the library and procrastinate reading the books I own (no deadline, I suppose), I figured this would be worth trying. Here are the rules: Pick 12…

Meme: 15 Albums


Tagged for another music related-meme on Facebook by a different friend. The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you’ve heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Should be easy, no?  I promise not to look at my…

Meme: If your life was a movie…


A friend of mine tagged me for this meme on Facebook but I thought it would be more fun to make a blog post out of it.  I don’t what it really “says” about me but some of the answers are funny and at the very least you get to see a slice of my…

Fifteen things about me and books


“15 Things About Me and Books”  is a meme moving slowly across the biblioblogosphere started by John Scalzi in 2005.  I’ve seen it done by Steve Lawson, Michael Sauers, Jenica Rogers, Iris Jastram, and Angel Rivera.  Now it’s my turn. 1.  The first book I read on my own as a child was about cats. …

Return of A Day In a Life of a Librarian


Back in July, I participated in a web-wide librarian event entitled Library Day in the Life.  This event was created by the terrific librarian-blogger Bobbi Newman to allow people who work in libraries to share the great variety of work we do with students, patrons, and fellow librarians.  For more on what I do, check…

A Day in the Life of a Librarian


Librarians everywhere are signing up for the Library Day in the Life project as a way of showing what we do to fellow librarians, library school students, and anyone curious.  I missed out on this the last time it occurred so I definitely wanted to participate this year, especially since I’ve been looking for ways…
