New York Maker Faire....

This past Saturday the library sent myself and Lenni to the New York Hall of Science for the 2013 Maker Faire. We were basically sent to get ideas and see if it was feasible to create a Makerspace within our own library -- Which it isn't, but we knew that before driving into Queens and checking everything out.
Despite knowing that in terms of the library going to the Maker Faire was a waste of time (Due to a of a lack of space within the library and proper funding), we enjoyed ourselves or at least I did.
 
It was neat seeing all of the gizmos and gadgets and all of the wonderful thing one can make with a little imagination and know-how (And the money to buy the prefab kits to do so, which our library doesn't have).

You Need A Degree For That?!...

As a person who constantly gets odd looks when I tell people I have a Masters Degree in Library and Information Science (Because they didn't know librarians needed them), I very much so had to share this infographic with all of you from Best Masters Degrees...
I Need a Degree for That?!
Honestly, I didn't realize that you needed degrees to do some of these other jobs. Did any of you?

Friday's Letters...

Dear Universe/Gods: Not only did you find the need to let me wake up with a wicked nausea inducing headache, but you had to make sure there was the biggest nastiest spider between my shower curtain and liner. Thanks for that.

Dear Weird 3D Movie Wanting Patron: Um, lemme get this straight... You have a pair of old school blue and red 3D glasses and you want to try them out because you want to know what this whole 3D movie thing is all about. Um... Really? Are you really going to make me search our catalog and DVD collection for a 3D movie because you have a pair of 3D glasses at home? Do you realize that it's not the same kind of 3D? Do you know that you are wasting my time? Thanks for the lost thirty minutes of my life. I hope you enjoy your crappy 3D movie, if your glasses even work with it that is.

Dear Almond Breeze: I absolutely love your new iced coffee almond milk coffeehouse drink thing. It's wonderful. Thank you for my new morning drink!

Dear Day, Erin & Chas: We're going to Cancun in exactly one week!! I can't wait!!

Dear Cancun: I hope you're ready for us!

Dear GEICO: I cannot believe that your stupid 'Hump Day' commercial has caught on to the point where even my mother is like "HUMP DAAYYY!" Thanks for that.


Dear Weather Gods: It seems to be raining the next week in Cancun. Can you please make that stop from say next Friday to the following Tuesday? Thanks.

Dear iOS7: I don't know how I feel about you yet, but I'm thinking we could possibly be friends soon.

Dear Readers: I hope you all have a great weekend!

Do More Of What Makes You Happy...

Texts From Wrong Numbers...

I was just skimming through Facebook and I saw that my friend had shared this BuzzFeed article '27 Perfect Ways To Respond To A Wrong Number Text' and as a person who is constantly getting wrong phone calls and text messages (People think my number is a doctors office) I just had to read this. And as I was doing so I was cracking up, thus I am sharing it with all of you.

So, how do you react when you get wrong number text messages?

I'm not gonna lie, I can be kinda mean snarky when I get wrong texts/phone calls because I've gotten such terrible attitudes from people in the past while trying to be nice that I'm kinda like screw it.

Once I got a wrong number text and it was a picture of a bunch of old ladies in a pool with an additional message saying something along the line of "Look at Grandma in the pool!"

I just responded "My Grandmother is dead. You have the wrong number..."

I got an "Oh, sorry..." back.
 
I dunno, was that terribly mean snarky of me? I mean, it definitely isn't the worst thing I've said (Someone texted me "What up   insert n-wor?!" That exchange was not pretty). Lemme know.

Stuck In My Head: Wrecking Ball...
