Yet Another Librarian's Blog

    This article is from the US and talks about libraries in Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco but I know firsthand that librarians and library workers across Canada and right here in Regina regularly deal with people who are drunk, on drugs, or occasionally even actively using on library premises in washrooms or elsewhere. It presents […]

    Every single weekend when we get back from our seasonal site on Sunday night, I feel like my legs are on fire from all the walking, biking, hiking, swimming and assorted heavy lifting I’ve done over the weekend (and no, I’m not just counting all the beer cans I’ve lifted to my mouth as “heavy […]

    Last night, I looked back through all 10+ years of July 18 posts on this blog and I realised that I rarely post on my birthday. That’s probably a good thing – it shows I’m likely doing stuff in the real world instead of staring at a screen. 😉 For example, today I was out […]

  • 08/08/17--20:34: Camping Injury Report
  • Camping is a strange thing – you pay a lot of money to basically live in the wilderness with all the attendant dangers and risks. This summer, we’ve had a few… Pace hit himself in the face with a metal scooter while attempting a trick, cutting his face, giving himself a fat lip and loosening […]

  • 10/11/17--20:39: Swedish Death Cleaning
  • This article says people should start slowing getting rid of unnecessary household objects in their 50’s so as to not burden others when they eventually pass away. But given the amount of junk Shea and I have in our house, I think we should probably start now in our late 30’s (her), early 40’s (me) […]

    I don’t pay a lot of attention to UFC for the most part unless it’s a big name or a big fight or when my love of pro wrestling intersects with the world of “real” fighting via someone like Brock Lesnar or CM Punk participating. And I rarely to never watch the live PPVs, usually […]

    MetaFilter’s Election Night Thread (uhm, trigger warning?) and a Second Thread That Opened After The First One Became Too Unwieldy As The Reality of What Was Happening Started To Hit People A Year Later, We’re Still Trying To Figure Out How Trump Won (Biggest Mistake Was Thinking He Couldn’t) What It’s Like To Watch The […]

    [Edit: This post started as a way for me to share what I thought was an interesting Reddit post.  But then I had the idea to use it to talk about whether I found it interesting was because I identified – and was slightly embarrassed by – many of the points it raised. Re-reading this […]

    The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix had an editorial today that I couldn’t agree with more. Their point is that with two exciting, concurrent leadership races happening in each of the province’s main political parties, there’s no excuse for people to not spend $10 to buy a membership and have a lot more direct impact on either the […]

      There are concurrent leadership races happening in each of Saskatchewan’s two major political parties but it often feels like the party’s leadership candidates are running in completely different worlds. And maybe they are – the Sask Party race has been focused heavily on rural issues, small businesses, and the ever-looming shadow of controversial social issues. […]

    In the current Sask NDP leadership race, you’ll see lots of endorsements from many of the high profile people you’d expect to hear from – current and former MPs and MLA’s, grassroots and labour activists, young leaders and lifetime members. I’d like to talk to you from a different perspective – as a working librarian […]

    If you’re new to the NDP and/or legitimately trying to decide who’s the best choice for Leader out of Ryan Meili and Trent Wotherspoon, the TED Talk that Ryan gave at the University of Regina in 2012 is probably the quickest and easiest way to get a sense of who Ryan is, what he stands […]

    There’s half a dozen reasons I support Ryan in a single photo: 1) he’s now an MLA, 2) he spends a lot of time in the Legislative Library researching and reading, 3) he’s (probably) the only current MLA who has a book in that same library, 4) so many people I knew in that room […]

    As the big air competition begins in the Olympics tonight, this is a pretty amazing documentary. Fun friend-of-a-friend name-dropping trivia: The filmmaker is Mark McMorris’ manager who is married to a girl that I used to babysit.  My parents even attended their wedding but my invitation got lost in the mail. 😉

    This is a video I made in the lead-up to the 2013 Sask NDP Leadership Vote. And honestly, do I detect an echo? So many of the things that Ryan led in during in the last leadership race are areas where he’s once again leading in – fundraising, “fun”raising, engaging members, online engagement, etc. etc. etc. […]

    During my time at library school, we did as much traveling around Ontario and other destinations in the area including one memorable train trip to Montreal.

    I put this on Facebook before the Humboldt Broncos Vigil tonight (and after some time has passed, I may share some other thoughts on that) but wanted to capture it here too since Facebook sucks. 😉  I’m not unusual in Canada for how much hockey has meant to me my whole life. I was never […]
