Pretty much my response to Quarantine. "Oh I don't have to go out?" *eyes bookpile, browses online graphic novels collections, reviews streaming service lists...* "okay..."· MoTO Babycakes 11
Mine did, but most of the time punishment was about "get that kid outta my hair for a few hours" in my house.· LibSkrat 5
A scientist at work fosters kittens through a local group and she's got 3 ready to adopt. Trying to be strong but Cheddar, Colby Jack, and Avocado are pretty darn cute #critters4BeeDub
am very disappointed that Avocado is not green.· Catherine 6

JFC. Employer notified me that someone has claimed unemployment with my name and SSN. So what I didn't need to do today was mess with this. At least my hr is good about providing all the information to dispute. SIGH.
My whole week was building to this awesome lunch: grilled chicken breast (too much so in fridge already cut into strips), 6 pack of romaine - half a head already washed and cut up in the fridge, grated a ton of extra Parmesan yesterday for spaghetti, brand new bottle of Cesar dressing acquired ... at some point? YUM! and ever so fancy. Plus eating standing up in my kitchen (to take a break from sitting to work) I could just shovel and didn't have to worry about salad-eating niceties :)
EW ew ew. Overdrive to acquire Kanopy. Ew.
Boss, who is the same one who routinely gets me spun up about things like budget and staff, made ominous hints at a group meeting that *things are going to change* per THE DIRECTOR.... and *soon*...???? possibly requiring video to be on while in zoom meetings (ok, but we have talked about this for the past year, sigh, eye roll) or possibly requiring everyone to return to campus immediately full time or make a decision for the next 12 months to work from home and give up your office. or perhaps something entirely trivial or obvious.... no way of knowing. Why. Do. I. Let. Her. Do. This.To. Me. Every. Time.
I've peopled way too much today. hoo-boy! i can't wait until we hire somebody and get done with this interview stuff

"Burton’s biggest complaint has been physical. Her back began hurting every day she spent in the office. At first she wondered if she needed a more ergonomic chair. Then she realized the pain persisted as she drove home. “And it hit me: ‘Oh! It’s this bra. I’m not used to this.’ ” "· Christina Pikas 3
"Everett Sotelo’s moment of panic came just two weeks ago. The 26-year-old software engineer from Phoenix was packing for a wedding in Pennsylvania. He’d thought through all of his outfits and then, 30 hours before his plane was scheduled to take off, he actually tried them on."· Christina Pikas
" “Am so confused if I should wear sweatpants or a dress,” one tweeted. “I have no in-between clothes for this new in-between world.”"· Christina Pikas 1
Oof, yeah, this is real· I keep receipts. 1

I got to hear from Galadriel today - be very jealous! She is *amazing*
For lo in the garden I heard the rustling of wing-ed angels.... oh wait, no, that's just me being dive bombed by cicadas.
Anyone else join the COVID-19 Community Corps? I don't know how helpful I'll be since I try to surround myself with reasonable people who are pretty science-based. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ... dialed into a kick-off call now.
request to round up some history for MPOW. Finding amazing publications from the librarians from the 50s-60s.
When I was researching how NYPL responded to the pressures of McCarthyism, I was deep in the library's archives going through correspondence of librarians, internal reports, etc., from the 1940s and 1950s. So cool to see what it was like to be a librarian then. One of my favorite things was the correspondence from the head of the Jewish Division, who had some colleagues outside NYPL that were deemed subversive by the anti-communist bunch. The volume of letters he responded to was amazing, but the best part was the way a letter of his would be typed using a traditional typewriter but then had Hebrew characters inserted when needed; I envisioned a pair of typewriters in his office to help him with this shift back and forth.· Stephen Francoeur 2
Yay! US to share 13% of vaccines purchased - 80M by the end of June. Some are already en route to South Korea. These are Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J (no word on AZ yet as we will not share what doesn't have EUA for use here). Working with COVAX, African Union, Caribbean group, and other regional groups.
no quid pro quo, no agreements required, being given free and clear. South Korea a special condition due to concern over safety of troops stationed there. Some being targeted to India and West Bank due to their humanitarian conditions (no political strings)· Christina Pikas 2
I think you all might enjoy The Mitchells vs the Machines on Netflix - tech bro makes a digital personal assistant who then tries to take over and quirky family fights back. not really a spoiler but the dog breaks the machine vision : dog, pig, loaf of bread... pow!

I want to send my job announcement to STS-L (actually my main campus buddy dose) and we're told the list doesn't exist but my buddy is getting e-mails from the list? Does anyone have ideas how we can send to that list?
