Chillin with my labbits. And books. And The Quiet Beatle.
Sam Elliott is clearly a queen at heart.
Making Tgiving with Labbit! Potatoes are roasting, turkey is coming out, veggies are going in!
Happy Turkey day!
The libraries and archives that feature historic mustache images — from NYPL to the Smithsonian to our own Special Collections — are kicking into high gear in honor of Movember
Was tornado watch this weekend. Labbits got scared and hid in the basement inside an old suitcase. Offered to take them to work with me, but library has no basement. Important in tornado country. (I swear, we will move somewhere a bit less scary someday!)
"Notoriously vain about his mustache." Sounds like someone I know!
Reading S. by Doug Dorst and J J Abrams - I’m the first at my library to read it, and I volunteered to figure out how to catalog it! Exciting medium and intriguing mystery so far. Digging the art-book vibe and narrative in the margins and on bits of paper material tucked in between certain pages - people are calling this a love letter to the written word, and I’m excited that a prominent figure in the entertainment world is supporting and exploring what physical books can still mean to people; you could put this in ebook form, but it wouldn’t be nearly as fun!
I have to say, the librarians who canceled their orders and whined about how impossible this is to catalog are total spoilsports! I’m excited to add something like this, even if it takes a little work, to get other people excited about books being special art objects in and of themselves!
More later, when we finish the book and cataloge it!
Labbie, sitting on top of Harry, my styrofoam head, to look out the window at the creeping whiteness.
Urgh … need to organize my desk. Santino is swimming around with a flower pot and two skull candles right now.
OMFG it’s snowing!!! First time this year it’s stuck around. Brrrrr! … Okay I’m kinda ready for holiday season now!
Gilbert Grape has been hanging around with me when I go to school. He was there to witness the initial downpour in downtown I.C.
By the time I got home it had built up quite a bit! Labbie’s hanging out on top of Harry, my styrofoam head guy, to get a better look.
Book-pressing: another use for labbits …
What is unbored?
