"Where the Hell'd the Zenformation Professional Go?"
Checking In

Wow...what a week...two weeks...

I've been sort of in and out of it for a while now, trying to find new and creative ways to help my countrymen.

I know there's a lot of folks who stop by and read the Jasoba Fett Tales of Unrepentant Madness. For those who may have lived under a rock or haven't heard a thing about this bad motorscooter called Katrina that's caused states of emergencies in 15 states now, shut down twoof them, obliterated at least 10 libraries, and left hundreds of thousands homeless, well, killed at least 10,000, destroyed billions in property, and has turned the Big Easy into a toxic waste dump filled with bodies...

Why do you continue to read? Can you even read? Why are you wasting my bandwidth?

I also know there's a whole hell of a lot of truely awesome folks out there reading this, all of whom I want to thank from the bottom of my heart. First, my main man G over at Library Bitch. Smurf from over at Discovering the Truth, and Kara over at Enigmatic Simplicity. I appreciate the comments and best wishes. (And G., your message today made my day, dude!) You guys all rock, as do my family, friends, and colleagues.

Also need to give mad props to the good folks who've given so much time and effort, blood, sweat, and cybertears getting Geaux Library Recovery up and running as a legitimate information clearinghouse...special thanks to fellow know who you are. And to all the librarians, archivists, conservators, preservation specialists, and volunteers who've joined in, you all have a special place in my heart. We've been able to help a lot of folks in Louisiana get the things they need.

A lot of folks may remember my friend Jen (who used to post regularly, but, because of her little unsanctioned visit to Oxfor, was asked to not post anymore by her management). To echo what she told me last night on the phone : no, bless your slutty little heart girl! Jen didn't want me to tout her donations to various charities, but she gave the equivelent of nearly half my salary to Katrina-relief in canned goods, water, money, and clothes over the last few days (Ah ha, who'd a thunk it...feature dancers make more money than librarians.) And yes, I finally got your scrunchie unstuck from the window... selling the panties you left on eBay (just joking, went out with the mail today.)

And to my peeps down in the Gulf will not be forgotten.
