I just posted about LibWorm not too long ago, and then today I read about LISZEN on the ALA TechSource blog. If aiming for a Google-like look, LISZEN's your search engine. Perhaps that's because the creator used the Google Co-op to build it.

I'm really not sure which one is better though - they both pull from library blogs. LibWorm has 1500 feeds, and LISZEN has 600. Perhaps LISZEN has superior search capabilities because it uses the Google platform. I'm really not sure.

Once again though, I have to sign up for something to get my blog added. I am supposed to add my blog to the wiki first, and in order to edit the wiki, I have to create an account. Sigh. I have way too many accounts to keep track of.

Pimp a Nutcracker!

In the spirit of the holidays - enjoy.

Pimp My Nutcracker. hehehehe!

And for your listening pleasure, I highly recommend David Sedaris' "Six to Eight Black Men." It's definitely my favorite of his stories and had me laughing so hard I cried!

Hmm, not sure what I think about this since my blog isn't included and all (hehe), but LibWorm is interesting... and it looks pretty. The little worm guy is cute. :)

I suppose I could create an account and get myself added, but frankly, I can't keep up with my current list of blogs - why would I want the opportunity to find so many more wonderful things to read? :)

"Raunchy books"

A coworker forwarded me a post linking to this particular article: Raunchy books pulled from NYC school. I'm glad to see book banning is alive and well. I love that detailed instructions on French kissing are so taboo!

And I don't know if it's an unfortunate wording in the article, but I wasn't aware that one really needed instructions on homosexuality.

Blogger has finally deemed me cool enough to allow me to upgrade to blogger beta. Too bad I have to go Xmas shopping or I'd monkey around with it all afternoon. :)

I got tags! Woo hoo! Of course, I have no idea what tags to assign to this post. Hmmmm.

Where, oh where, has Kat been?

I haven't been so good with this blogging thing as of late. Things have been busy. Then again, when are they not?

Most recently I have found myself with four less teeth. That was a wondeful experience.... The drugs weren't nearly as fun as my friends promised they'd be. It actually went pretty well, as it is only the 5th day and the swelling is already nearly gone. I return to work tomorrow and it is nice to know that I won't look too terribly much like a chipmunk. :) I could very easily get used to the whole 5 day weekend thing though. Too bad it has to end so soon.

Now the Christmas holiday is drawing close and I have yet to do much Christmas shopping. Ooops. I always put it off though, so this is nothing new. Hopefully I'll get a decent amount accomplished today.

Perhaps I'll return to blogging with a slight bit more regularity at some point in the future...

[And if anyone needs a good oral surgeon in Zanesville, I highly recommend Larry Towning. :o) He rocks!]
