About Who?

I have found that I'm pretty awful when it comes to describing myself. Some people just have a talent for it, and I am not one of those people. For instance, anytime I sign up for a new service and have to fill in an "About Me" section, I usually just groan and put it off. However, there are a few times when I think I've really nailed it.

My last.fm one is my favorite - I was up late and in a weird mood, so I just started listing things. This is what I came up with:

Things I love:

Music (obviously)
B movies
Daisies
Driving with the window down
Bodies of water
Chinese buffets
Road trips
Occasional blogging
Being crafty
Librarian-ing
Rollercoasters
French fries with salt and vinegar
Dancing (badly)
Singing (even worse)
Stickers
My Garfield pillow


I like that. A nice list of my interests, and nothing too deep or personal. I also hate when people ramble, so I kept it to one topic. Another one I like is my facebook one:

I am an uber-geek, a librarian, a procrastinator, and a wanna-be crafter. I love books and libraries and science and computers - and any combination of those things.

Short and to the point - you don't get much better than that. I don't like the one I wrote for Blogger, but since I refuse to write the same thing twice, I won't be changing it anytime soon.

With any luck, you've learned a great deal about me from this post.

You may already read this webcomic, but in case not, it was library-related and I felt compelled to share:

(and if it's not on there anymore, it's probably the most recent in the archives!)

Hmmm, lists, I've done that, yup, oh the memories. But hey, does this tell us about who you are (like I care, lol) or is it just things you like? Hmmmm..?, here's a tip from a pro: Next time your "up late and are in a weird mood", how about listing a bunch of a things you don't like. Not obvious things like "I hate sand in my eyes", you know, things that are rare, unique, all you, like "I don't like happy couples" or "I'm afraid of bunny rabbits"................ ........... And who am I? Just some washed up has been in California. I'm a writer dude studying Public Libraries and lending rights at the momment. Your blog bubbled up through my Googlings. Well enough said, good luck in life and all that jazz, maybe I'll drop by again for some more muse. hasta

Since you're a librarian, you may get a kick out of the librarian-related merchandise at www.mcphee.com. My personal favorites are the librarian temporary tattoos, like "Read or Die," or a skull with the inscription, "Alas, Poor Yorick."

The librarian action figure is pretty cool, too.
