telophase: (Near - que?) it's a sleep-deprived Friday and I am desperately trying to stay awake, I need entertainment.

Tell me your first memory.

...and in need of entertainment, people!*

And I offer to you a link I've been holding on to for a while: the most excellent Shorpy: The 100-Year-Old Photo Blog. Shorpy posts vintage photograhs from whenever through the 1950s, with a bit of commentary on each one when anything is known about it, and has high-res versions of each photo. Fascinating! (ETA: And don't miss the comments people leave - they often spot neat elements in the photo or add information not present. ETA2: Or you get gems like this entry, where three generations of descendants of the people in the photo showed up to comment. :D)

* Nothing NSFW, as I'm in the middle of the computer lab and study area and my screen is visible to everyone, and nothing with Flash or any other plugin, as the Ref computer is (a) slow and (b) locked down tight against installing anything.

Lomography. Totally awesome. May have to do it.

In other words, at work today from 11 AM to 8 PM, taking turns at the ref desk with one of the other ref librarians. Entertain me! (If you post a nonworksafe link, mark it so I can look at it when I'm sequestered in my office, rather than when I'm on the desk. :D)

Will attempt to start answering my pile o'email. Hah bloody hah.

...and totally not happy about it. I'm at work today only because the apartment complex notified the apartments around me that they were shutting the water off today to do plumbing repairs, and I decided I'd rather be miserable in a place with running water. Sum total useful work today: I turned in a form. Which involved me walking over to one office in the library to get a signature and then upstairs (on the elevator, actually, otherwise I'd start coughing and not stop) to turn it in, which made me tired.

Anyway, I'm sitting here trying to stay awake, so to help me: tell me your convention stories. Funny, sad, noncomittal, whatever.

Here's a short one that isn't even mine, it's [ profile] mothoc's, but I stole it from him: at A-Kon a couple of years ago, one of the escalators from one convention floor to another stopped, with many people standing on it. Who remained standing on it, until someone near the bottom yelled for them to WALK UP THE STAIRS.

Entertain me!

In a work-appropriate manner!

I'm at the Ref desk today and it's sloooow - Sunday afternoon and evening is always the heavy weekend time - and I'm here 'til 6. I'm going to lunch at 1, and when I get bakc, I expect you to have all filled the comments on this post with ENTERTAINMENT.

and in other news, Toby's coming over tonight and I think I'm going to give him an Ultimate Male Fantasy ... I'm going to hand him my game controller and say "Level me up" and then I'm going to do housework while he goes to town on the PS2, because currently I live in squalor.

Note to self: not having any caffeine after 3PM and drinking 2 glasses of wine = waking up with migraine. ARG.

And I had a little bit of something-or-other in my mouth so I dreamed I was walking through clouds of midges and they kept getting into my mouth. And there was something about my mother in an SUV on the back porch making the house tilt to the side, and BPAL making specialized cereals, and small vicious pink lizards that would attack and eat larger red lizards and then in turn get attacked and killed by wasps. Yeah, I dunno either.

Have to work today from noon til 5. ENTERTAIN ME.
