I was going to make this exact post, but pinksheya has said it best:

"For those who might be interested, Lush (my other job) is having a sale. Seriously! I would have told my lovelys about this earlier but I didn't even really know about it. However since some of you love the stuff I thought I would let you know. All bath products are buy 1 get 2 Free (of equal or lesser value of course) - which includes bath bombs, bath melts, bubble bars, and all sliced soaps. You can mix and match too. EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE ENTIRE STORE is buy 1 get 1 free! This includes the gift sets, shampoo stuff, face care, all of it. Again, you can mix in match, so long as you spend $20 you get $20 free. There are only a couple exceptions, this sale is called Clean Slate '08 - so we are getting rid of stuff that was made before December 2007. Which means everything made in December is not part of the sale. So, the sooner you get to the store (macy's mall of america first floor) the more stuff is on sale."

I add that the worst discount is equivalent to the normal employee discount and the "buy one, get two free" is much better. If you've ever loved Lush stuff or were curious and wanted to try them out, now's the time.

09:40 pm - Hey all--missing person alert--read please

The 15 year-old daughter of a friend of my sister has gone missing. Evidently, Julianne Baggett's 19 year-old boyfriend convinced her to run away with him after she was grounded for poor grades and drinking. She's from the Tacoma, WA area, but they've been gone for about 7 days and could be in Seattle or Portland or California or pretty much anywhere at this point. The info on her and her photo is here

The reason i ask you to keep your ears and eyes open is that there's a good chance they're hanging out in a goth or spooky-kid scene somewhere. If you have any PacNW communities you could pass this along to, i'd be grateful. Julianne used to be a very close friend of my niece when they lived in the same town.

07:11 pm - Query--library stuff

Today, one of my cohort and i discovered that our wonderful Centre for Medieval Studies library contains a) books that the U's library owns but live on our bank of the river--a full 15 minutes closer walk than the proper library for those of us farthest away and b) books that the U library system doesn't contain at all. Sadly, CMSL's collection is poorly organised and not at all catalogued.

I hatched a plan.

With volunteer help, i reckon we can shelf-mark and database all of the books in the library so that medievalists can make much better use of them. We'd like CMS to be the bustling hub of activity it once was, and it would be dead helpful.

Now, i can probably roll my own database, but it would be hacked together, unprofessional, and likely full of the craptastic. Have any of you come across a free (preferably Free) database system that would allow us to input full bibliographic details for books, including LC call numbers, in a format searchable by author, title, call number, and perhaps keyword? We'd want the database to be locally hosted but able to be set loose on the Internet. It's a strangely specialised request, but i'm guessing if anyone knows of such a thing, you lot would be the first defence.

So, we have a chain of sandwich shops here called Jimmy John's who pride themselves on the quickness of their delivery service.

Today, a bus that pulled up to my stop was plastered with a JJ's ad that said "Our special sauce is speed!"

Erm, really? Do they not test market these things? And are their advertising execs mad, or is this meant to be deliberate?

Well, their other adverts do seem to be funny, but i'm still not sure that this is exactly as deliberate as the Mr. Happy Crack campaign.
