So He Hid It in the One Place He Knew He Could Hide Something....

According to The Eclectic Spaghetti Calendar today is More Cowbell Day, in honor of Christopher Walken's Birthday. You go, CW! I think he's a cool guy. He's seems smart and funny...and I don't know...just kinda cool. He's been in a bazillion things, because he says he doesn't like to turn down work. He's definitely not an acting snob. Among my favorite movies that he's been in are: Dead Zone, Wayne's World 2, Pulp Fiction (recognize the quote?), Scotland, PA, Joe Dirt, Pool Hall Junkies, Wedding Crashers, and Hairspray. There are many others I'm sure I've enjoyed too, but these are the ones that come to mind (it's weird up there, trust me.) I also love that he is a dancer. Yeah, that is smokin', right? I alway get a huge kick out of watching the video to Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice".Work it Mr. Walken! Raise your cups and toast this fine, versatile actor. "More Cowbell!"

My Big Movie Weekend

Subtitle: Oh, You Lazy Slut. I did virtually nothing this weekend, but sit around watching movies. I won't do reviews, because I plainly suck at that. I like lots. It good. Me happy. But I will list and link them for you, in case you are looking for something non-action based to watch some time. Also, I don't think you are going to be blown away by anything here. It is probably stuff you already saw if you were at all interested. Still, witness for me, or maybe I didn't even HAVE a weekend!


Brokeback Mountain. I had seen this, of course. My daughter hadn't, but had been wanting to. So we Netflixed it and finally got around to it. Watching gay cowboy sex with my 16 year old daughter was not even close to being the most awkward moment of my life. Probably doesn't even make the top ten. This is such a sad movie though, that is what stuck with us.

Garage. I just happened across this one while flipping around. It was just starting and I was initially watching because there were subtitles even though the actors were speaking English. They had strong Irish accents though, uh duh, so it was pretty helpful after all. Wow, this movie was so beautifully done. You could feel this man's pervasive loneliness...so painful. I would say I enjoyed it, but that wouldn't be quite right. I was very moved by it.


Rachel Getting Married. Found this one at the Redbox. This was an unusually structured movie. I liked it very much. Anne Hathaway was so good as the self-centered, struggling addict who is out of rehab for the weekend to attend her sister's wedding. I love that the groom was played by the singer for TV on the Radio. There was lots of good music throughout the movie too.

You Kill Me. This was another one of my flipping around finds and I had actually seen it before at the theater. I liked it and it was good to see again. Ben Kingsley is oddly hot. Sorry. He just is.

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. This was another one of my Redbox finds. You never know what is going to be in there. Anyway, I'd been wanting to see this, but have never gotten around to it. It was a cute little teen movie...just right for my state of arrested development ;-)

And THAT was my entire weekend. It was so worth it.

Congratulations AlienCG

I know you, Alien, and also Tara already posted about this, but I had to add my official congratulations. Since it is now just over a year you are now, officially, a non-smoker Alien! I couldn't be happier for you! Well, I could...but I am real, real, happy for you. And proud as can be. You go, Alien life form, you go.

Your Sins Are Outdone

Let me begin by pronouncing this week's word: SCIOLISM. It comes to us from the labyrinth-y mind of K_Sra who wants us to Learn Something New (almost) Everyday. I'm not gonna front. I had to look up SCIOLISM in order to participate this week. I think if I acted as though I were intimately familiar with the term when I am not that would be an example of SCIOLISM, sort of...right? Like a superficial show of knowledge...right? Hey, I am all about that! I sit at a Reference desk acting like I KNOW STUFF! I get up in front of groups of people and act like I should be there. SCIOLISM is my job!

I wasn't sure what photos would truly represent SCIOLISM. Please. Admit it was hard for you too. Or if it wasn't maybe pretend so I won't feel the burning shame of failure. Oh man. Okay, take a look:

Here are a couple fellows who have a genuine skill set and are experts in a specific field. If something needs to be maintained, they are there! And when you ask them a question about sticky locks or flickering lights, they can give you a complete and competent answer. No SCIOLISM here. They're the real deal, as I see it

Here we have, well, me. Working my magic. Totally talking out mah butt for a few laughs or smiles...or no angry cries. Like I said, a superficial show of knowledge, SCIOLISM, is what I get paid for. Does that not totally kick ass?

And yes, I agree, there is way too much butt and ass in this post. So sue me. But before you do, check out everyone's SCIOLISM post...did I reach the most, honestly? Nevermind. Just go find out from K_Sra who is up next and have SCIOL-tastic day!

Week in Review

Well, not really the whole week. Just little things that are on my mind.

- Spring has sprung. I mean it is all going on...the beautiful weather, the optimism, the rising of the sap. I have to say, my mood is definitely elevated lately.

- I started up my storytimes again this week and it is sooo much fun. I love doing them and well, the positive feedback that I get feels pretty darn good. Everyone likes to feel that they are doing a good job, right?

- I hope you are all taking the time to read my Dancing with the Star column to your right. Oh, you don't watch? Fancy, watching your....intelligent programming! Um, sorry.

- While I'm on the topic of television, as usual Grey's Anatomy made me cry last night. It touches the hell out of me, what can I say. More unusually, My Name is Earl made me cry a little also. Aw, it was sweet.

- This week has gone really quickly. Every morning at 5:45, I think I am not going to make it through this day. Then I stagger into the shower and things start to look up. And another day begins...and doesn't end until 12 or so. Right now, this is the right rhythmn for me. And the way things are moving summer will be here in a flash.

- I'm looking forward to a weekend with nothing in particular on my plate. As you know, I am quite the lazy bastahd, so I like it like that. I hope you have the kind of weekend that you love!

You Deserve Something Sweet

I decided to go all in on AlienCG's idea to celebrate this as "Act Like a Kid" Week. So on this Choose and Defend Wednesday, I am giving you a couple of sweet choices. Kids love 'em and you can too. When it is time for your afterschool snack, what are you going to Choose?



Choose and Defend, you little scamps! Oh, and if you want cake too, look down at the next post :-)

Happy Birthday Tara!!!

Happy Birthday to one of my very most favorite bloggers in the whole world :-) I wanted to get you a cake that was just as pretty and whimsical as you. I hope this year is your best one yet.

Now, everyone, please go visit Tara over at Eclectic Spaghetti and wish her many happy returns of the day.

Things to Do If You Don't Have a Life

Today, I present a useful list of things to enjoy if you don't have a life. They work if you have a life too, as I know the vast majority of you do. But if you don't have a life, this stuff may save you.

1. Blog - Everyone should be blogging. 'Nough said.

2. Social Networking - Personally, FaceBook is my network of choice. MySpace got ridiculous and Friendster kinda died on the vine, didn't it? I also like TeeBeeDee, because it is a relief to get messages from people who aren't in their teens :-)

3. Read - This one makes you feel kind of vituous, even if you read sleazy romance novels. Hey, at least you're reading. If you read something with a little more substance, you get to feel extra good and it really chases all those boring daily nagging issues right out of your mind. There is only so much room in there after all. Um, speaking for myself.

4. Work - People without lives make good workers. Let's face it, if you have much of a life of your own, it is going to interfer at least a little with the job. No life = Worker Bee.

5. Watch Television - An obvious one, but very important. Play it right and you can become really invested in characters from your favorite shows! You might get a little too excited when, say, Grey's Anatomy comes on. Don't be ashamed, there isn't anything wrong with that. It's good to have feelings!

I guess we better leave it there. Five is a good number and these are things that anyone and everyone can participate in! This has been a Public Service Announcement brought to you by laura b. (who, of course, has a life, but likes to play the fool now and again)

I Think I'm About to Cross the Line

Hey, a big shout out to Tara of Electic Spaghetti for choosing a crazy hard, but also crazy fun word for this week's Saturday Scavenger Shots. Woot! I dug around on my computer a bit to find something that could show you the way to my SHENANIGANS. As you all know, I have many, many photos of my little people and their SHENANIGANS. However, I was in the mood to get more personal with you. Nowadays, most of my SHENANIGANS are mental. How does one show such a thing? The closest I could come was to take a couple of photos of the stuff I have posted at my desk. I am assuming the things I choose to look at day after day must mean something :-) I do have a rich inner life and all this stuff sort of speaks to it. So, that was how I got here:

What do you think it all means? Could mean everything or nothing...but it does call to mind some sort of SHENANIGANS. Check with the terrific Tara to see who will be tagged for the next wacky, wonderful word.

Friday 5 - Quarterly Progress Check

Here is an interesting Friday 5. I think the first day of Spring is a great time to take stock of things, so here we go....

1. Would you say 2009 so far is meeting expectation, exceeding expectations, or failing to meet expectations? I would say that so far, 2009 is meeting, and sometimes even exceeding, my expectations. It is all it should be and more.

2. What letter grade would you give yourself for your performance at work or school? I'm going to give myself an A-. I'm a good worker, and I am definitely hitting all my marks...but occasionally I could make better use of my time :-)

3. On a scale from 1 to 10, how happy have you been with the weather so far in 2009? I guess I'd have to go with a strong 8. It has been a mild winter here, moving towards a beautiful mild spring. Today, for example, is just perfect weather-wise. Couldn't be much nicer.

4. Which of the Motion Picture Association of America’s film ratings would you give your social life so far in 2009? Oh, hm. Well, all things considered probably a PG-13. There has been an R moment or two, but if we're working the odds it's much more PG...so a compromise. PG-13.

5. 2009’s parents are on the phone and want to know how 2009 can improve its performance. What have been 2009’s areas of strength and what are its areas for growth in the second quarter? 2009's parents should be proud. Areas of strength include the growth of self-reliance and inner peace. Balance is being achieved, slowly but surely. There is room for growth in the motivational areas. I'd like to see more socializing. Stay positive, 2009! The world can be a wonderful place and your spot in it could be memorable...in a good way!

I hope 2009 gets a good report from you too. Let me know.

In the Spirit of Optimism

I wasn't sure what to post today, so I took a look at the always fun, useful Eclectic Spaghetti Calendar and found that today is the day to list things you like about your job! That seems a natural for me, because I really do like lots of things about my job. I'm a lucky girl.

1. I have the best access to new books as they come out and to classics that I need to read to feel complete :-)

2. Working with the public allows me to meet kind and interesting people everyday.

3. I get to use creativity in making the calendars and event flyers for my department.

4. I get to steer kids towards books that they might enjoy. I get to help them find that perfect book for a report that they've been stressing over.

5. I get to do three storytimes per week for children ages 19 months through 3 years. No lie, kids this age are the most wonderful audience in the world. And their parents are so happy to have their children entertained. It is a very feel-good part of the job.

6. No micro managing. I have my desk schedule and other tasks, but it is my job to use my time off the desk as I see fit.

7. I work in a community that, for the most part, values the library.

8. My superiors and coworkers are all pretty great people. Easy to get along with, plus very empathetic when there are family issues, or any other issues for that matter.

9. I am encouraged to try new things and to provide imput on purchases and other departmental decisions.

10. Sometimes, the fire fighters come to visit us, even when we're not on fire :-) Do you love your job too? Hate it? Tell me about it!

Small and Kinda Creepy?

Today, I still have the wee folk on my mind. So I thought to myself, I can use that! I have Choose and Defend Wednesday to post and I can use that thought. Here are today's choices...one of which you will Choose. One. Pick one! You can do it! Then, when you have gotten that far...Defend. Get behind your choice and defend the heck out of it!

Ah, okay, again, I begin...here are todays Choices. Which small, kinda creepy, but possibly generous creature do you prefer?



Please don't say you can't pick because they both creep you out. They creep everyone out! Pick the least creepy and then practice your mad defense skillz. Or, hey, maybe I'm wrong, way off base and you love the bejeebers out of these little fellers. Tell me so! Both so tiny and cute and they give you stuff! Um, right? So, you still have to choose which one possesses just a hair more of your cute, adorable heart :-) I have faith that you people can do this. Choose and Defend.

Feeling Green

Dexy's Midnight Runners. Kiss them, they're Irish!

A Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of you. I am wearing green, because I work around children and have no wish to be pinched. Well, that isn't quite true in the strictest sense. Pinching is fine...under the right circumstances...but not at work, okay?

Anyway, I decided to take today to celebrate everything I know about Ireland and/or being Irish. I warn you, my knowlege is scarce. Here is my list:

* Faith and Begorrah
* Erin go Braugh
* Celticism
* Claddagh rings/tattoos
* Shillelaghs
* The Troubles
* Potato Famine
* U2
* Sinead O'Connor
* James Joyce
* W.B. Yeats
* Riverdance
* Lephrechauns
* Pots of gold
* Rainbows
* Shamrocks/Four leaf clovers
* Irish harps
* Corned beef and cabbage
* Warm beer
* You get kissed a lot, at least once a year

Um, that's all I can think of in my assigned time :-) And yes, I realize some of them are quite the stretch...or are maybe, I don't know, racist or something. But I have some Irish in me, so that's okay then, right? Ah well...Happy St. Patrick's Day all y'all.

What You Can Expect

Right now, I can laugh about nobody loving me...I'm in the right kind of mood. In fact, let me share with you. I swear, people KILL me! Here is the most recent message that I got from this one personals site guy. Keep in mind, we have just written back and forth a few times. Mostly just short messages showing off how incredibly clever we are. Today, I get this:

You have proved to me, once again, that the brain is the greatest aphrodisiac. It's been quite a while since I've felt challenged, intrigued and stimulated...and that's just in text. I have given my day over to sporadic smiles and hopes for more mail...from you. What will she say next, how will she bend her words to allude but not commit? Surely she must be this dangerous in person. Imagine sitting across with that cuppa coffee.

That being said, as much as I enjoy chatting with you, I find another instinct growing within me. And that is know to more about you in the flesh, and as a lover. That look on your face I thought told me much, as we've shared some witty innuendo and word play. I wonder if she can really take the gloves off and spar with me? Tell me about her needs, what she's always wanted in a partner, does she wish for the adventures I long for as well. Is she the confidante I seek? My agent provocateur, to borrow a phrase?

Curious to see what you'll say next

Jeebus Aitch. I don't even know what to say to this. WTF is it with some guys? I've never met you, I've seen one picture of you, we've traded some wittisisms and now we are talking of being lovahs? Yeah, I don't think so, but thank you for playing. I am dumb, I guess, because I don't get it. I seem to either come across these men who clearly just want to get witchoo...or if I am luckier very nice, but odd types who you want to befriend, but not date.

The more I think about it though, the more I reckon it is something about me. Like, if something weird happens once, it is random...but if the same weird thing keeps happening to YOU, you better check yourself. Like, I am drawing this stuff too me...but why? Or how? Help.

You've Done All the Takin', It's Your Turn to Give

I am expecting lots of good stuff today, thanks to Churlita's fine choice for this Saturday Scavenger Hunt. TREAT anyone? Of course, you want a TREAT! We all do. Here are some of mine, and they are quite modest really.

Of course I like the occasional sweet TREAT. And the messier the better, am I right?

I love dancing. I try not to think about how very Elaine-like I may look doing it. It is just a feel good TREAT.

There is nothing like the pleasure of a good laugh. Sometimes you aren't even sure what is so funny, but it is such a TREAT to feel so good!

Um. Yeah, I don't find myself in many compromising positions these days...but from what I recall...well, quite the TREAT. *sigh*

I hope you found this post a right TREAT. It was fun for me, and that's all that matters! Well, not all that matters, but still, right up there! I look forward to seeing all of your TREATs and also to seeing who Churlita tags for next week. Thanks for playing!

Friday 5 - It's Cold

I thought I'd do another Friday 5 because they are such good clean fun, doncha think? This one is inspired by how cold it has been. Okay, not so much around these here parts, but you know...

1. What’s your favorite frozen heat-and-eat food? My very favorite is probably California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizzas...either Four Cheese or Margherita. Yum.

2. How sensitive are you to cool temperatures? Way too sensitive. I seem to really feel the cold and I have to say I don't care for it all that much. I am a hottie. Um, nottie, but whatevs.

3. How many ice-cube trays are there in your freezer? Two, single row, plastic trays with lids. You've seen the pictures.

4. What aspect of your life seems to be frozen in place? I guess I'd delicately call it the "grown up" aspects of my life. I think I need a nice spring thaw or something....

5. What’s your favorite blanket like? It is a big maroon comforter. It is really, really warm, but lightweight. I love it, but it is beginning to show some wear and tear. It will probably have to be replaced soon, unfortunately.

I hope you'll tell me about your cold proclivities too. I hear Spring is coming and it will be a whole new world...something to look forward to, right? Right! Hope you all have a good weekend. Mine is going to be very movie-watchy, if I have my way. Cheers!

A 3/11 Celebration, Dudes.

Although today is Wednesday, I have decided to stray slightly from my usual Choose and Defend format. Instead, I've decided to celebrate 3/11 with my son Social Animal and his favorite band, 311.
He's loved them for years and as a kind of homage to his loyalty, I decided today was worth acknowledging. And guess, what else? We're gonna do it with an ol' fashioned list making activity. Some fellow blogger used to do this regularly. While he is no longer with us, apparently, we can still make lists! So, instead of Choose and Defend Wednesday, today is just for Choosing! Please add to my little list of "Bands with Numbers in Their Titles" in honor of 311 on 3/11. Here are ten easy ones to start us off:

- 311
- U2
- 10cc
- Maroon 5
- Finger Eleven
- matchbox twenty
- Louis XIV
- Nine Black Alps
- Nine Inch Nails
- Tahiti 80

Now, what have you got for me? Make a list! Make a list! Make a list! Are you making your list? Okay, go on then...

Here's MY Word. What's Yours?

Your Word is "Think"

You see life as an amazing mix of possibilities, ideas, and fascinations.

And sometimes you feel like you don't have enough time to take it all in.

You love learning. Whether you're in school or not, you're probably immersed in several subjects right now.

When you're not learning, you're busy reflecting. You think a lot about the people you know and the things you've experienced.

Oh, Blogthings, you've done it again. Kudos.

Please Don't Let Me Start Coughing Like Walter White

I wish I had something exciting to share with you. But let's face it, how often does that happen? Approximately never. However, you are fairly warned by the blog title, correct? So...

Friday was a day off for me. I caught up on my laundry. I went grocery shopping. Fresh & Easy grocers are springing up everywhere like mushrooms. I like them pretty well. Their selection is somewhat limited, but what they do have is quite nice. I was so grumpy that day and I couldn't figure out why. I mean, I was near tears when Girlie Girl called to tell me she'd locked her keys in her car. Not exactly a huge disaster, but I felt nearly unable to cope. By that evening though, I realized I was simply run down and had a cold coming on gangbusters. So...I went to bed pretty early in an attempt to scare it off. Because....

Saturday was a work day. And it is always super busy...and there is usually only one other person scheduled in the department. So, of course you can call in if you are sick, but it is going to be a real, real long day for the person there alone. So, I wanted to be fit enough to work and I was. It was, as advertised, a very busy day and it flew by in a daze of public service. How uplifting. Um, yeah.

Sunday was mostly a quiet day. I watched The Royal Tenebaums (again). I finished a book I was reading called The Glass Castle, a biography by Jeannette Walls. I can recommend both of these pleasures to others. In the evening, Girlie Girl and I had dinner with the Kick Back Dude Family and they came over to watch the season premiere of Breaking Bad and boy, oh, boy...I definitely recommend this show! Does anyone else watch it? If you don't, you should. I'm just saying.Don't mess with the man who has nothing to lose. Mm-hm.

So, that was my weekend. I made it through the time change without much weirdness. I always adjust all of my clocks whenever I go to bed Saturday night or Sunday morning, so that I wake to the correct time. Then I try really hard not to add or subtract that hour all day long...and before I know it I am in the new time groove. And I do love Daylight Savings Time.

I hope you all had a good weekend and in the spirit of optimism, let us look forward to a wonderful week ahead! Rah!

It Seemed the Taste Was Not So Sweet

It is time to post our Saturday Scavenger Shots. Thanks to MrManuel for declaring this a time of CHANGE.

I decided to go a couple of different ways with CHANGE. First, as you may know, my life has CHANGEd quite a bit during this past year.

I went from living there...

To living here...

This turned out to be a very positive CHANGE for me. Of course there are ways to second guess every CHANGE, but for the most part I try to look at CHANGE as a good thing. Which brings me to my second take on CHANGE.

Here is the CHANGE that is in my wallet today. Looks like I could get me sumpin' offen the dollar menu with that there. Good CHANGE :-)

Now, I will close with a joke.
Q: How many therapists does it take to CHANGE a lightbulb?
A: Only one, but the lightbulb has to really want to CHANGE.

Thank you ladies and gentlemen! Now, go CHANGE, because I just know you've peed yourself laughing....

Friday 5 - On This Date

One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies...

Please enjoy learning more about the wonder that is me. haha! Forgot until I saw it on Tara's blog that I need to link back to Friday 5...there now, done!

1. On March 6, 1869, Dmitri Mendeleev presented the first Periodic Table of the Elements to the Russian Chemical Society. What memories do you have of your high-school chemistry course? In all honesty, what I remember most about high school chemistry is chatting with my tablemates about music. We totally knew all the words to Planet Claire.

2. On March 6, 1899, the Bayer company registered aspirin as a trademark. When did you last take medication for pain? Maybe three weeks ago? I almost always get a very special time of the month monster headache. Good times.

3. On March 6, 1853, Giuseppe Verdi’s opera La Traviata premiered in Venice. How do you feel about opera? It's kind of funny that this question has come up again :-) I appreciate opera more in theory than in actual fact. My mom used to play Madame Butterfly sometimes when I was little.

4. On March 6, 1947, American film director Rob Reiner (Meathead!) was born. Which of these Reiner-directed films have you seen, and what do you think of them?
* The Bucket List (2007)
I haven't seen it. Couldn't get enthused.
* Rumor Has It… (2005) I've seen parts of it...meh.
* Alex & Emma (2003) Oops, another one I haven't seen.
* The Story of Us (1999) I did see this one and kind of found it interesting...the idea of dissecting a marriage.
* Ghosts of Mississippi (1996) Oh, I thought this one was really good.
* The American President (1995) I think I saw this...it was your basic sort of romance thing, right?
* North (1994) This was kind of cute.
* A Few Good Men (1992) I liked this one. It was pretty strongly acted and compelling.
* Misery (1990) I thought this was great. Both Kathy Bates and James Caan were amazing.
* When Harry Met Sally… (1989) I know it has sort of been copied to death, but at the time I really liked it. Actually, I still do.
* The Princess Bride (1987) One of my all time favorite movies.
* Stand by Me (1986) I've seen this movie so many times and I always like it lots.
* The Sure Thing (1985) I haven't seen this one in a long time, but it is good! It has John Cusack, so there.
* This Is Spinal Tap (1984) Oh, another one of my all time favorites.
From the looks of this list, I was all about his earlier movies and then somehow one of us changed...hm.

5. On March 6, 1972, American basketball-player Shaquille O’Neal was born. How do you feel about basketball? I am not too sports fan-ish, but I do prefer basketball to football or baseball. It moves more quickly and seems to hold my attention more.

Okay, this was a longish one with all the movies to consider, but I hope you liked it anyway. I did :-)

Oh, Noble Professions!

I come to you this Wednesday with an extremely random Choose and Defend. It is just because I have a one track mind, so don't let it concern you. It will jump the track soon, I feel certain.

So, on this fine Choose and Defend Wednesday, please tell us which is the profession you....let's see....admire...most! Yes, your choices are limited and arbitrary. Still, I feel confident you can Choose and Defend here. So, who gets your medal of commendation?

The Fire Fighters

The Doctors

Look here...I will even put up some pretty pictures for the straight men and/or the lesbians out there...

The Fire Fighers

The Doctors

No excuses, now...Choose and Defend! Gracias.

March Around

Today's Taraday calls for Marching Around. Normally on a Tuesday, I would get the chance to do that at my storytime. We are between sessions right now, so if I want to March Around I will have to do it on my own. Privately. Private Marching Around. A new film from Paramax Studios. Now, I'll be shutting up.

Oh! I did want to mention, though, that tomorrow is our Read Across America event here at the Library. Do you know what that means? I'll tell you...it means the Firefighters are coming! If things go as planned, photos will be taken. Yessssss.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled activities.

I Took Your Advice

As my photo illustration implies, I spent the weekend relaxing, as many of you urged me to do after my sad post-date experience. Thanks! I did have a very mellow weekend and I do feel good :-)

I would fill you in on all that I did, but it's not much...I watched tv, I read, on Sunday we had a family picnic in the park. The weather was beautiful all weekend, with the drizzles holding off politely until today.

Recommendations by laura b.
Watch - Murderball
Read - Howards End
Eat - Tomato basil pasta

Ah, good times. Who needs a man, eh? heh heh...well, we'll see...
