If you could have any superpower, what would you have? Why?
I’d love to have the power of suggestion of the Jedi mind trick, though I’d abuse the hell out of it. Hey, I think you want to shelve all my library books right now, don’t you? Get on it! You can start with Reference.
Who is your style icon?
I actually don’t have one. I am on the hunt for one, though, so if anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them. I’m fond of the librarian look but my day-to-day icon needs to be something more casual. I’m not inspired by the 80s which are reincarnated unironically all over the middle school campus I where I work, so fashion these days makes me feel old. So I guess my style icon is Betty White? But I’m still shopping around.
What is your favorite quote?
Pretty much everything from my Follow Friday posts. I don’t have to look beyond my friends to find quotes to live by.
What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
Nic Piper once described me as a plucky, indispensible librarian with floaty hair. I don’t think anything tops that, really. Although there have been lots of times when people who just met me thought I was from somewhere other than my hometown. I said, “Bless you, random stranger!” and hugged them with tears in my eyes.
What playlist/cd is in your CD player/iPod right now?
I’m embarrassed to admit that I accidentally broke my iphone… again… so I just got a new one thanks to the Apple Care warranty (which I highly recommend). For those of you keeping track, this is my fourth iphone. I KNOW. Thank god I haven’t broken my BABY. I don’t have a warranty plan for her. Since I’m still trying to get this phone established I have zero songs on it at the moment. I need to get that.
Are you a night owl or a morning person?
I used to stay up late on a regular basis but then I had a baby. I’m now up at 6:00 am no matter what time I go to bed, so I’m falling asleep earlier and earlier. My emphasis is less on “when are you awake?” and focus most importantly on “when can I have some sleep?” Sleep is the Precious. We loves it.
Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Cats, duh. Did you know they can poop in a box, all on their own? And they don’t bark! My Mom is The Cat Whisperer so I grew up with her uncanny understanding them and don’t easily get offended. Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs, I just don’t think I could ever have one. Cats look after themselves, and I like that.
What is the meaning behind your blog name?
My philosophy is to emphasize the importance of the little things in life—to make the little things BIG, as in, important.
