Where did May go?

Mulch May went by way to fast. I suppose two weeks of vacation helped move things along.

I spent my first week of vacation back at the beginning of May working on outside projects. I scraped paint. I mulched. I also did a day trip to the 'burgh to visit some friends and see the old houses.

Second house in PittsburghI hadn't been to Pittsburgh proper since we moved to Ohio. It was kind of sad visiting the old neighborhood.  It also doesn't help that Trader Joe's is now in East Liberty.  Wal-Mart just doesn't cut it. Oh great and benevolent Target site selectors, please build a store in Zanesville! Oh, and thank you Chipotle site selectors! We love your burrito goodness.

I spent a lot of time at work in the middle of the month extracting holdings data for specific publishers from our shared catalog. I wrote a proposal identifying a couple of ways to allocate cost shares for e-book collections. My preference is to follow the OhioLINK formula since that is how OPAL's share was derived, but the directors need to make the final call on how we are going to split our share of the costs.

FarmI'm enjoying the remaining hours of my second week of vacation. I spent most of this last week at the farm. I went up on May 26 and came back late this past week to attend an OhioLINK meeting on Friday. Yeah, I know, lame to do a meeting during vacation. I still have a couple more days to use before the end of June. We're under the "use em or lose em" policy at "Fish with Teeth Grrr" College. 

I wonder how fast June will go? ECSTI students tend to keep us busy. My trip to DC for ALA Annual will also make time fly.

  1. Yeah, lame to do a meeting during vacation. Especially given that you were sick on top of it.

    Also, I love the new name of our college – “Fish with Teeth Grrr” College.

    A Target store in Zanesville? That would be so wonderful.

  2. I know some people are very cautious and never name their place of employment on their blogs. It’s not that hard to figure out where I work, since I link to it on the right and it comes up pretty easily in the search engine results. I’m also not a big fan of the use of MPOW in posts.
