Reading For Pepperoni

I miss reading for pizza.  I do.  I really, really do.

When I was in elementary school, they offered the Pizza Hut Book It! program.  I don't remember exactly what the book goal was but it was something along the lines of "read 10 books, get a free personal pan pizza and a sticker for your cool hologram button".  Being as I grew up in a little Minnesota town who's closest restaurant pizza option was driving miles into town to pick up a Hot Stuff from the grocery store before driving back home (and probably popping it in the oven to heat back up), going to Pizza Hut was like a mini fantastical vacation.  Go to Fargo or Detroit Lakes, sit down at fancy pizza place, show them your proof of book reading, get magic personal pan pizza.  Cue angels singing.

Turns out, Pizza Hut still offers this program! Granted, for kids...but whatever! For the love of pizza gods, can they offer an adult version of this???

Happy Late Pride Day!

Love love love to all those, gay and straight, who have proven time and again that there is NEVER anything wrong with LOVE! 

If love is offered accept it!

Mad? Or Happy?

Because when I work a Saturday, I just need a laugh...

Because today the haters won't get you down:

I love an awesome cover.  Prince's cover of Crimson and Clover might be one of my all time favorites.

I'm also a relatively new fan of The Civil Wars.  My dad sent me the video for their awesome version of Billie Jean.

Turns out, they've got a bunch of other covers as well.  And if you've never heard The Civil Wars before, I highly recommend their album Barton Hollow.

Bartending As A Backup?

There was a point before I started graduate school where every report said librarians were going to be the new hot commodity.  Oh, there's going to be so many librarians retiring and we'll have so many jobs! Fast forward to the bursting of the economic bubble and it's basically the opposite.

No one is retiring, no one is filling empty spots with full-time positions...

And reports like this come out:

Forbes: The Best and Worst Master's Degree for Jobs

Who ranks as the lowest of the low on this list?

Break A Leg...No, Really..

You know what you shouldn't wear for a FitDance class?  A class where you're dancing with lots of arms and legs moving? Often resembling a hip hop dancing gorilla?


The normal, responsible foot owning public never expected to need to explain this.  (and yes, I meant "foot owning" feet cried for hours thinking about you last night, lady.  My ankles were equally disturbed)

I'm talking to you, lady-wearing-normal-clothes-and-too-much-makeup at FitDance last night.

p.s. No, they are also not appropriate for the preceding Abdominals class either.  Shocking, but true.

Super Sexy Serial Killer

One might think I was referring to Michael C. Hall and his portrayal of Dexter....While I'm a pretty giant Dexter fan, I'm also a HUGE Chelsea Cain fan.  

Who is Chelsea Cain?  She just happens to be the author of a number of books including the Gretchen Lowell series.  Gretchen Lowell is the twisted, violent serial killer that torments the troubled detective, Archie Sheridan.  It doesn't matter if Gretchen is in jail or not, she can still pull off some gruesome deeds.  Probably because she's not only a mental genius, she's also drop dead gorgeous.  The girl can seduce, yo.  This series is one of my all time favorites and I recommend it all the time.  Archie isn't the most likable of characters in the first book but he has substantial emotional growth throughout the series.  Stick with the guy and you can't help but be engaged in his personality.  
Not for the weak stomached....

Anyway, I bring this up because the 4th book in the series is being released on August 7th and I just had a giddy, bounce in my chair clapping session...

I'm above and beyond excited...

Heartsick, Sweetheart, Evil at Heart, and Night Season

p.s. Cain is from Iowa City which makes her even cooler...

Happy Mental Break

Do you need a mental break?  Desperately searching for happiness?

Look at this:

Live Puppy Cam

(turns out, embedding the video stream didn't work)

Shiba Inu puppies...sleeping, playing, being stupid cute....

Seriously, it's so cute your teeth may fall out

There Goes An Hour

Sorry I've been missing for the past couple weeks! The library is moving to a temporary location and because of that, I haven't spent much time in front of a computer...which meant I haven't wandered across much awesome stuff lately...Until now!

I just lost more than an hour of my life at All Women Stalk.

(Pretend there's an cute image here..for some reason, I can't get anything to come up correctly)
It's a website with tons of lists in different topics.  Hair, diets, wedding, fashion, travel...I will admit, I'm not a huge fan of the format of their lists as each item is listed on the "next" page...I'd prefer to not have to click "next" to see every single thing...just put it all on one page....BUT it still has some great lists and it's seriously addictive....
