Sad part is – it’s not that far from the truth these days…

Now, this is what I’m talking about! Way to go out in Medford.


Patrons at Milford’s Wadleigh Memorial Library can challenge a library student working in circulation to a rollicking round of DDR to pay off fines! Go here for all the details in The Cabinet.

Maybe if I stockpile articles on other libraries doing this my library will let me do it too! (I’m more of a Guitar Hero type though.)

Although, on another note, I’ve been considering hosting a Guitar Hero tournament at my library. I haven’t brought up the idea to my boss yet because I have yet to figure out the specifics, and I’d like to do that before I make a proposal.

Has anyone out there ever hosted a Guitar Hero tournament? If you have, how did you organize it – like the rules and stuff? That’s where I’m stuck trying to figure out how best to manage it.

Please email me or leave a comment if you have any ideas or experience that might help.

I hope everyone had a great holiday. All of my wishes came true! I got Guitar Hero III and a dance game called Pump it Up! Although, I didn’t get Rock Band, but I’m working on it.

I did get a video camera, which I plan to use to get some footage up here of something interesting – don’t know just what that is yet… Maybe Skippy the cat going for a walk in the snow?

Probly my favorite thing is my new guitar! That’s right a real guitar so I can be a real guitar hero. While I was back in Texas for the holidays I got my Dad to teach me a few chords on his guitar, and even made up a song about not going in the barn at night – hmmm that’d be good fodder for the video camera… Anyway, I was having so much fun with it he got me one for my birthday, which is coming up this Friday!!

So, I get to learn how to play the guitar for real now. That’ll be a handy skill for story times. At least I’ll have something to keep me occupied this winter since I won’t be in classes cause I’m graduating!! Woo hoo!!

She’s a beautiful guitar named Matilda. I’ll put a pic up when she gets here next week. I couldn’t take her with me on the flight home with ATA cause they’re meanies! And after I spent 4 hours waiting for my flight to Texas… I do not recommend ATA. As a matter of fact I heartily discourage any flying with them. I’ve used them twice and both times have been horrible disasters. Maybe some time I’ll elaborate on those experiences a little more.

Happy New Year world! (Did you eat your black-eyed peas??)
