looscan library

AS I WORK ON MY GRAD SCHOOL APP FOR LIBRARIANSHIP, UNLEASHING AN OLD BUT APPROPRIATE DRAFT POST FROM 2015:

i had to come over to looscan library to work today because mom had people in her apartment, and it is a strange blast from the past. i used to walk here almost every day in high school, it was a very tiny library then, and i really sucked the juice marrow out of it, or whatever that expression is. i would do my homework but also read rolling stone, buy used christmas LPs from old library stock, read plays (‘night, mother) (!) and hundreds of harlequin romances (covertly). there’s a brainy article by zadie smith about libraries that does capture what is so great about libraries. common ground.

found in an email from 2008 — proof that it’s possible for me to actually LIKE the city where i live (the local marfa kool-aid dream glow  makes me feel like i’m essentially a cranky hater):

portland kind of rules. i really like it and i have no good reason for why that is. just feel content. though my tv doesn’t get NBC so i never get to watch law & order anymore, wtf (by the way, my friend greg had a recent guest appearance as a dirty lawyer). work is weird but i’m starting to think that maybe work is ALWAYS weird? cause really what i really like doing is reading fiction and drawing and watching undercover cop movies and drinking wine and eating salad and sometimes stretching and riding my bike and listening to rock and holding babies.


another letter of recommendation: this little mixing paddle

kettle and brine mixing paddle by jonathan's spoon

perfect size for a hand
(from kettle & brine; by jonathan’s spoons) (solid name, honest trade)


DO NOT FALL FOR IT!

we bought this as part of our wedding home purchases, and i was pumped — pasta keeper, no more open pasta bags, portion control, straight civilized. BUT DO NOT FALL FOR IT, IT IS MERELY A GIANT NICE TUPPERWARE FOR PASTA WITH A CLUMSY PORTION CONTROL FEATURE.

NOT A SEAT

this was at a welcome center desk at an ohio rest stop. truthfully, it was a very tempting height for bottoms — almost begged to be sat upon. i loved the tiny warning, plus their second-tier strategy of stacking so many magazines to prevent seating.
