Shifts update notice

Chapter 27 of Shifts--Interlude (5), where Francis Apcarne is born--is up. Added a para about where Remus was hiding himself and made Andromeda's mood a bit less over-the-top. Other than that, just took out some of the many, many typos (including "You pout yourself in this position").

I feel a need to rant, but have no subject in mind. I guess I'll think about it and do it later, or maybe write some kind of fic later. Sigh.

It's been a bad couple of days, mood-wise. Must kick my brain into gear and make work for a living.

EDIT IN: Because I'm going to do a whole post some other time, and this isn't worth its own.

I realized something while watching the commercials in AI last night. I'm going to watch at least the first episode of Stacked, with Pamela Anderson as a librarian. Either it will be horribly done (which is probable; comedy writers seem not to know what's actually funny in libraries, as opposed to what's a cliched library stereotype), or it will surprise me and be funny. PA seems to know exactly what her niche in the entertainment world is and not take herself too seriously, which is helpful in a comedy. So, huh. I guess I'll watch and see what they do. But she'd better have some student loans hanging over her head. Masters-level. Serious student loans. If they hire her because she's cute and needs a job, despite having neither education nor experience, I'll have to weep.

Speaking of odd things about libraries, the Massachusetts Library Association's conference is called "Defying Classification." Guys? We're librarians. I don't care how uncool classifying things is or how radical-chic you think it sounds, classifying things is a huge part of our job, and it would be darned hard to do the rest of it if things weren't classified. Why treat it as something that should be fought against? Try defying the status quo: Say it loud, I'm classified and proud.
