Fall always starts out with such a loud roar and then becomes this pitiful mewling by this time of year.

The last question I got was fetching a journal article from the (locked) Math library. Before that I was looking for moons of Saturn.

I’m going to get to use my blogs (and the kitchen sink) presentation with an English class next quarter. That should be loads of fun.

Looks like I’m going to start developing a discussion section to accompany Chemistry 111 next year! I’m so thrilled.

I got the wackiest questions online last night

– “i need some info. about the gods and what would happen if they were pleased and what would happen if they were displeased with the city-state”

– Phillipino christmas decorations and recipes for traditional foods that weren’t too “fancy”

– High and low temperatures recorded on Earth

– Biographical information on Jean-Paul Marat. [My mother would be so pleased!]

And then in person we had a book that was supposed to be here, but wasn’t on the shelf (we found it!), a patron apologizing for referring to me as intelligent, carpet being installed and no public computers.
