A few of us at work have started “DECEMMER,” (where we draw mermaids for the month of December)…so recently I’ve started doing a series of sketchbook comics about different kinds of merpeople. Here is the first one, about the Mermit-Crab.
This morning, a man called the library with a reference question and special request.
Man: “Can you please look up the lyrics to the theme song for Scooby-Doo?”
Me: “Sure! Would you like me to read them to you, or email them, or—”
Man: “Could you please sing them to me?”
Okay, but I would probably do that.
No one wants me to do that, but depending on the patron (and how busy the library was), I might try.
It is amazing, as a woman, to learn to TAKE UP SPACE
Ha. Ha. Ha.
Let’s do some Last Christmas cover links, shall we? ‘Tis the season and all.
"Last Christmas" covered by Dead Cat Orchastra
Giant crab estimated to be between 15-20 years old, ‘miraculously’ survives five days in refrigerator, finds new home at UK aquarium. ”I couldn’t believe it was still alive,” expert says; family did not have the heart to cook the hardy crustacean, now named ‘Santa Claws’. (Just a note not really a miracle he survived but I wanted to post because santa claws…) (source)
KARKAT, YOUR DAD’S IN ENGLAND, GO AND GET HIM
My job made me prepare a list of all our Mandela books back in May.
That’s depressing, but those of us in libraries understand. My professor told me to make a list of comfort reads to keep on hand for the next major disaster (at that time, he predicted an attack from Syria).
That’s horribly depressing, but also, I think we should come up with a list of comfort reads. I know it’d make me feel better.
I haven’t done a song in a while, so here’s a song. A non-Christmas song.
"Sweeter than Sweet" by Lulu Rouge
I chose to watch terrible Hallmark movies, read books, and spend time with friends/family rather than pick away at my NaNoWriMo this Thanksgiving. It’s not surprising, really.
It was a fun experience never the less, and if I keep picking away at things, I’ll be in a better position for next November.
Words Written Today: 983
Since hitting 10000 words, however many days ago that was (6?), I’ve been on a bit of a NaNo vacation. Which is a little dumb for something that’s only a month long. Point is, I’ve never written this many words/pages for one project before. Unless you count everything I wrote for all my classes for my MLS as one project, then, yeah, okay, I’ve written way more than this before.
Anyway, it was my last NaNo event at work, and it was great. I’m not hitting 50000, but I’m going to keep picking away at this.
The Fight, and Fate
Hey frequentlydefiant! I think this quote fits our not at all normal ship of two actual people!
