Introducing one of my boys

I talk about them a lot, but I don't actually have any pictures of them in my office - all I've got are pictures of my girls (plus the girls' father, who one coworker mistook for a guinea pig). Although I've taken several pictures of my boys, most of them aren't that good. Plus, I'm lazy about putting them on my computer. This picture is one of the few that I've gotten around to taking off my camera. It shows Yuki, licking the last molecules of an egg sandwich off a plate. Unfortunately for poor Yuki, Bear is much faster and greedier and got all the good bits.

First post

I finally decided to start a blog connected to my work Blogger username (I've got a book/movie/TV blog under another username). This is going to be a pretty random blog - at this point, I'm thinking there's going to be posts about the many different kinds of muffins I've been making lately, cataloger stuff, my pet rats, and the many books I catalog at Tarleton's Dick Smith Library that I'd love to read but don't have the time for. Very exciting, huh?

So, since I've mentioned those books, here's a few I've done today that look good (unless otherwise stated, these books are in the General Stacks):
  • Naked conversations: how blogs are changing the way businesses talk with customers by Robert Scoble and Shel Israel [TK5105.8884 .S26 2006]
  • Challenger revealed : an insider's account of how the Reagan administration caused the greatest tragedy of the space age by Richard C. Cook [TL867 .C653 2006]

This isn't necessarily the only interesting stuff I cataloged today - it's just the stuff that I found interesting. If you've stumbled upon this blog and happen to be someone from Stephenville, you should take a look at the list of newly cataloged materials on the library website.
