More to come – If I knew what I was about – I’d not have much to write…

And here it is…

I’m a research librarian, bike commuter, baker, music fiend, lover of reading & books, mother, wife, friend – and many more descriptive adjectives and nouns.

I live in Tucson, AZ and have been a letter and note writing junkie ever since I could put pen to paper.  I am grateful for word processors because I have horrid handwriting. My sentence starts out fine, but then it looks like I’ve had some sort of seizure in the middle of writing and it goes downhill from there.

    May have been following you, or your blog anyway, for a while. I am now viewing your posts on a weekly basis. The last few, combined with your “about,” confirm what I had already suspected: We may have been related in a previous life or have some other sort of weird and otherwise unexplained connection.

    Specifically, I too am weight, or even more specifically, the # on the scale, obsessed. I have my reasons which may show up in a post (“Thanks Mom”) sometime. I am also not very artistic, in the commonly accepted sense, but my daughter is and I’m very jealous. I also have atrocious handwriting, which in my case is more akin to printing but with letters that kind of run into/on to each other.

    Same daughter (elder of my two) was briefly employed by National Archives while she was in college in DC, I was envious of both of those conditions (working in a sort of library/bookstore and living in DC) as those are two of my favorite places to spend happy times digging through layers of historical trivia.

    You can go to my site to see where I originated and where I am now but (last coinky dink here) I have several friends that live in Tucson and love it, most of the time. I visited there last year in late spring and was able to appreciate for myself what they love about it.

    • I am convinced that if you talk to someone long enough and reach far enough, you will find a connection. I am totally jealous that your daughter went to college in DC and worked at the National Archives (I’d live there if I didn’t have to worry about money or driving!) –

      Ahh – the atrocious handwriting. Why are we plagued with that?? And we always have to sit next to the person that writes with that bubbly handwriting of perfectly formed letters. OH HOW I HATE THAT!

      I am going to start reading you since we are related via something :)

    The bit about your handwriting really made me laugh. That’s me too…I really cannot read my own writing. And yet I keep writing notes to myself.

  6. I once defined the requirements for the RCAF’s warfare centre’s library. Almost a small world. I think I used the Connecticut State Library Planning Guide, or some such thing.

    Have to love librarians, research or otherwise.

    I have been meaning to tell you this for some time. Perhaps I shouldn’t spill the beans here in a public forum (because everyone that reads it will then be able to kidnap me.) Do you remember when you were a kid, in the wake of the Adam Walsh kidnapping, when you had a secret password? Someone comes to pick you up form school and says “Your mom sent me to pick you up…” and you were to reply “What’s my secret password?” and if they didn’t know it? Kidnapper. My password was “rutabaga.” Please whisper it to yourself aloud a la the most excellent game show “Password” – “and the password is…. rutabaga.” I smile every single time I see you post anywhere for any reason…. Rutabaga. I am not a huge fan of the taste but it’s my favorite vegetable for the smile factor alone. :) Can’t believe I waited all this time to tell that fascinating little tale, huh?

    I’m a librarian by training, trying to get back into the field after four years out caring for my late mom. There has to be a way for an old-fart, old-school-trained librarian (who spent most of her career in library assistant positions ’cause I like having visible results at the end of my work day) to try to get back into this much more digital, techno world. I would welcome your thoughts.

    Oh, and I used to live in Phoenix. Being in Minnesota again, I miss the two harvests per year of fresh veg and fruit.

    • Hi Linnea,
      Despite being a librarian, I don’t actually work in a library – and haven’t for the last 13 years. However, I have friend that worked in stats and then transitioned to the library, feeling much like you – that she had not the current experience. She did volunteer at the public library so she could get some experience and just kept applying for positions. Getting to know librarian people during her volunteer time was valuable as well. Good luck with your quest.

      Wow – Phx to Minn? Could two places be more of a contrast?

    My niece graduated in library sciences. Librarians are the coolest.

  14. Your description of your handwriting matches MY handwriting to a T. My kids mock me endlessly because I write things on the calendar that they can’t decipher. Sometimes I can’t even read what I’ve written myself :)

    I had a post from you in my mailbox called “Beneath it All” but it’s gone. If you want to see what lies beneath, come read my Top Secret section. Just knock, and I’ll let you in.
