One more full circle moment

A really big thing is happening in my library life right now. To preface: Do you all remember the library tour? That audio tour of the HBLL that we regularly checked out to freshmen (and the occasional awkward RM) in those royal blue portable CD players? Well, recently the library has decided that that particular version is outdated and so they've been creating a new, ultra high-tech tour. Come Fall, freshmen will be able to tour the library using an iPad that features an interactive video tour. At each stop they will scan a QR code to load the appropriate video, which features shots of librarians doing their librarian thing, and a narrator, with an against-her-will-Farrah-Fawcett-hairdo introducing the library's more "useful services." Any guesses as to who that narrator might be? Yep. It's me. And so everybody, in what might be (or at least should be) my last post on the LRC blog, please take comfort in the fact that our legacy will live on indefinitely. Everybody who attends BYU for the foreseeable future (or at least until the iPad is obsolete) will watch this memorable tour, and Amber, the last of the LRC In It's Glory-Days employees, will be doing her best to represent you all well. Much love and hope this finds you all happy! P.S. Let's all take a moment to send good thoughts to Andrew, the man with the last name that can change its pronunciation at any given moment. May your bride feel secure in the way she chooses to pronounce her new surname!

A forlorn little reminsicing.

After taking a year hiatus from the library I ended up back here as an employee. I'm now working in Course Reserve, which is about as slow as the LRC ever was. I work with Michael Eddington, who (now that Jeff is gone and Lisa Reynolds has left on a mission)is one of the most senior student employees here.

We had nothing to do and so we got to talking about the good 'ol days when Access Services was still alive and well.

I told Michael about the time Cheryl and I tried to hug Won and he freaked out. I also reminded him about Mark, the LRC kid, and his Spongebob addiction. We talked about the LRC summer karaoke party and Lindsey's genius LRC song.

Which by the way Lindsey you should really post on the blog. I tried to remember it but just couldn't do it. I do know, however, that it had something to do with wizardry and Terry Goodkind.

Michael told me about working with Blair Hendershot and I gushed a little about Graham's luscious hair.

We remembered Camille's beautiful curls and how much she hated people commenting on it when it was straight.

And then we thought about Stephanie Nordblad Stutznegger- the kindest, most pure library employee there ever was.

After which we talked about Lindsey- for her incredible baking skills and ever changing hair.

And Sammy Dickens, the girl in Forest World who would be the person I would run into in Europe.

Cheryl Johnson, Ms. Mongolia with the green hooded sweater that was lined in some kind of green furry stuff.

And Lanee Aho Jensen the tiny tiny lady who should own everything tiny.

Oh man. So many memories.

I hope you all are doing well and that life is happy.

And remember the wizard's fourth rule: Passion rules reason, for better or for worse.

Good News:

Mark (the LRC kid) is being home-schooled this semester. This means he will be in the Media Center almost every day. Get excited, because this kid knows how to dance!

the latest game that anna and i love to play.

1. take a remote for the honeycomb carrel TVs.
2. hide in the carrel right behind mark, the LRC kid.
3. repeatedly turn the TV on and off, or change the channels so he has no idea what is going on.
4. try not to laugh as he freaks out.

LRC Dreams

We've all had work dreams, but I think mine wins. The other night I had a dream that Mark moved into my home ward and I had to babysit him.
