Your Thursday & Friday SBBT Schedule, and an entirely pointless meme forced upon me by an evil person.

Ok, that last part isn't entirely true. But first, your schedule:

Elisha Cooper at Chasing Ray
Dar Williams at Fuse Number 8
Jennifer Bradbury at Bildungsroman
E. Lockhart at The YA YA YAs
Mary Hooper at Miss Erin
Charles R. Smith at Writing and Ruminating
Mary Pearson at A Chair, A Fireplace and a Tea Cozy

Varian Johnson at Finding Wonderland
Jincy Willett at Shaken & Stirred
John Grandits at Writing & Ruminating
Meg Burden at Bookshelves of Doom
Gary D. Schmidt at Miss Erin
Javaka Steptoe at Seven Impossible Things
Mary Hooper at Interactive Reader

Right, and now on to the meme. Sarah Miller. I really need to stop linking to her so much. Sarah: stop being funny. There. That should help. But really, can I help it if she tags me with these things?

Everyone seems to have done this whilst (don't you love that word?) I lived under that rock. It was a cozy rock. Softer than you think. Surprisingly clean. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Okaaay. Now that the crazy has past...on to the official blah-de-blahs before we get to the meme part.

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read the player's blog. (this, will probably not be met by Jackie. Because she's lazy.)
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answer (Sarah? Are you paying attention? 'Cause I might forget this step.).

What were you doing five years ago?
Er. May 2003. Waiting for my acceptance into Library School. Working 2 jobs and an internship. Not sleeping much.

What are five things on your to-do list for today (not in any particular order)?
1. Be on time for work.
2. Get the post in to ForeWord.
3. Worry incesently that the ForeWord post will be no good.
4. Call kids who've filled out the volunteer apps and convince them they should be on my Teen Advisory Board.
5. Not kill the patrons.

What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?
1. Start a foundation specifically for teen services in libraries; especially the creation of teen spaces in them and collection expansion.
2. Travel the world.
3. Pay for friends and family to travel with me. It's more fun that way.
4. Take a good long sabbatical from a paycheck-driven life just to see what would happen.
5. Save for retirement, 'cause we SO can't count on social security.

What are five of your bad habits?
1. procrastination

Good luck with that whole not killing the patrons thing. Seriously. And I agree that billionaire or not, we had all better be saving for our own retirements...

Jackie Parker said...

The patrons were actually quite lovely today!

Jen Robinson said...

Excellent! I would hate it if you had to go to jail for killing one, and I wasn't able to meet you at the Portland conference.

Meme done! But I refuse to continue the trend, so I guess I will risk the 10 years of bad luck or whatever...

Sarah Miller said...

Hee. I'm clearly NOT paying attention, 'cause I somehow managed to miss this post entirely until today. Bad, bad Sarah!

Egad, Jackie, did you go to GVSU?

Jackie said...

Um. Yes...

Are you going to steal my identity now?

Bibliovore said...

What would I do with your identity? My own's enough to juggle. I was at GVSU from 99-02. How funny.
