Hmm, An Unexpected Result

August 31, 2007

Ok, I can’t resist these quizzes. Honestly, I wasn’t suprised by the Oscar the Grouch part – but was about the Elmo reference. I’m pretty sure that no one has ever described me as childish or naive about the world. I think I tend to be more jaded and world weary. I’m now picturing myself as a part green and part read muppet. Anyway, this is the first time that I got a tie in one of these quizzes.

Which Sesame Street Character Are You?

You are part Oscar the Grouch. You can be gruff and often have a chip on your shoulder. Despite your intelligence, manners (and cleanliness) are of little importance to you. At the same time, you have a few very close friends who you allow to see a softer, kinder side of you.
You are part Elmo. You are lovable and ticklish, and always inquisitive. Sometimes, though, your excitement about the world can make you seem childish, naive, and occasionally irritating to others.

Happy Blog Day 2007

August 31, 2007

It is Blog Day again. Here is a list of five blogs that are new to me over the past year – and that I now read assiduously.

  • Gather No Dust -Jeff Scott is a library manager who blogs. He blogs quite a bit about technology and its impact on library staff – a topic which I think needs more attention.
  • – Karin Dalziel is a fellow LIS student. I thoroughly enjoy reading her blog – she always reminds me that I’m not alone in my struggles in graduate school.
  • The Vital Library – Martha Hardy is another LIS student. I often get many web quizzes from her – and that makes me happy. 🙂
  • Midnight Run – Joe Fox is also an LIS student in an online program at San Jose State University. He posts quite a bit about his experience in school.
  • Circ and Serve – Mary Carmen Chimato is the head of access and delivery services at a large academic library. She add a unique voice to the world of library blogs – one that I always enjoy reading.
