Presidential Sighting?

Did anyone notice a handyman wearing a blue cap and a red bandana today? Neither did I, but while reviewing the photos I took of Bill, Delores, Sherry and Kay, I noticed this mysterious worker in one of the pictures.

Is that Former President Jimmy Carter or
a look alike? You decide.

a random quote

i saw this quote on another blog (referring to the library at Siam University), but i thought it sounded like something our own library clients will be saying when we complete the renovation!

"i like to go to library everyday because i feel
quite comfortable with the good facilities"

CD-R Pizza for Carry-Out ONLY!



This "CD-R Pizza" was discovered beneath an old CD player while we were emptying the study carrels prior to demolition. Check out the generous toppings of dust, hair and dried mystery fluid. The golf pencil (embedded in the brown, cheese-like substance) makes this one a Supreme CD-R Pizza--an unusual find.

how do you like our new service desk?


Brenda test drives our new "service desk." our real one is being dismantled and moved so the new flooring can go down.

monday clearing






an army of movers, haulers, and shakers came in today and cleared the floor in preparation for the painters and floorers (is that a word?). painters begin tomorrow and the existing flooring (what's left of it!) should come out this week.
