Clip Show

25 Aug

Remember when I  insulted Diego for running an episode that was at least half flashbacks? To wit,

To which my twitter wife Kristin replied:

True that, lady. Unfortunately I must be a recent convert, because today’s post is the internet version of a clip show. Praise Xenu! Some time ago I was tagged by Little Big reader Shelby Stidham to participate by listing seven of my most notable posts according to their corresponding category.

Here we go!

Most Beautiful Post: This is why we had kids. Try not to cry when you see the photos.

Most Popular Post: My most popular post was about Library Apps, which was featured on Freshly Pressed. It also lead to my first snarky comment—the high price of fame!

Most Controversial: I don’t think I have any posts that qualify, but one time my husband compared me to Dr. Dre. Just thought I’d share.

My Most Helpful: Some may point to 100 Games to Play with Baby or one of  the tutorial posts, but who are we kidding? This post teaches your baby to read ancient hieroglyphics.

Surprise Success: Remember that time I insulted Pinboard and said bad things about their moms? And then they emailed me back and were all nice and then offered librarians free accounts? Yeah. That.

Not Enough Attention: I really feel like this post didn’t get the attention from the gangster community that it deserved.

Most Proud: The time I met Anthony Bourdain was pretty awesome. Spoiler Alert! I think I found my Christmas card photo.

Typically this is the part of the meme where you tag other people to participate, but I’m really bad at these things, plus I don’t know any Scientologists, so I’d like to invite anyone reading this to join in the fun. If you want to participate, I’d love to read it!

Still Sick

5 May

So I’m still pretty sick, and I’ve run out of prepared posts so I’m taking a cue from Gen with a G and sharing an awesome video with you instead. I was totally going to blame this sickness on Gen, too, but she had the stomach flu and whatever’s wrong with me is more on the Strep throat spectrum of Hell. I’m going to the doctor today so at the very least I can get a doctor’s note and assuage my massive guilt about missing work when I should be conducting inventory.

Anyway, Gen’s video is about what happens when Oscar Wilde meets Jersey Shore. I don’t even watch Jersey Shore but I have a basic, rudimentary knowledge of pop culture so it was fucking hilarious. I highly recommend you go check it out after your done over here. Also, I love Gen’s writing. Probably more than is appropriate.

This video is called “Roll a D6” which is a parody of 1. a popular song I’ve never heard of and 2. Dungeons and Dragons. If you (or someone you love) has been seduced by the roll of the dice, this video is for you.

Last but not least, whenever I’m anywhere near the computer Isobel asks to watch “bunny videos.” So this one’s technically from her.
