"I'm back," she said, looking at the dust and empty bottles.

Yes... long time, no post

Ah, I have not yet gotten into the swing of posting here.

I'm more FB oriented, and since I separate my identities pretty completely, LJ has suffered. I still lurk though, and read the posts of both friends and not-yet friends.

My Ravenclaw self is in exile - no library in sight, and limited access to really good coffee (although I rely on a tiny Bialetti stovetop brewer). I am far, far from home - both physically and spiritually. I have been sleeping on the floor on a rubber mat for two months. There are a lot of other things taking my time, and my writing is at a low ebb. Hopefully today I can make myself get one section of my bibliography in shape - tedious work, but it will be good to have it done.

Happy Sunday to all!

It's been a very busy and hectic few weeks of new librarian job, followed by a week of vacation with family. I got a little writing done there, but mostly tried to relax. Seven days without the internet AND I lived to tell about it.

However, my job has pushed my writing time to about one and a half days a week. What can a Ravenclaw do? Normally I have a lot of warming up rituals that take time before I get myself in the zone; now I just have to jump from work to writing and try to use the time that's there. Never mind. GO CLAWS... We will conquer.

Well, I see that my earlier dissertating days spoiled me - making my own schedule, time and energy for thought... Being a librarian and adjunct instructor is wearing me out. Today rather than church I am reclined on the Raven-blue couch, drinking coffee out of a mug similarly cobalt, and trying not to panic about the conference paper that should have been sent out days ago.

I must say, though, that of all my duties I like cataloging new books best. Such a feeling of power. The library is growing before my eyes.

back to work

The summer has been long and hot; lots of traveling and dissertation writing. But to twist Lewis: "always summer and never Holidays."

Now I'm back in Ivory Tower at my new job - librarian. Lots of shelving today. I'm taking Pratchett's orangutan librarian as my mascot as I begin reluctantly to rule the stacks. Hopefully I'll be able to hide out there enough to get the rough draft of the dissertation done and turned in soon.

It'll be OK. 'Cause not that I have anything against the other houses, but Ravenclaws Rule.

taking a stab at it

Having resisted for this long, I find myself at the moment with time on my hands and thus am beginning to post. Whether this will be a short-lived fling or a long, satisfying obsession remains to be seen.

I've been enjoying hearing about Infinitus 2010 and seeing pictures. Maybe someday I will fly down from my ivory tower and try out a con.
