Soothing Migration Anxiety

I got up way too early with a case of migration anxiety about the roll-out for MPOW’s new site. (For those of you new to this blog, MPOW is an acronym for “My Place Of Work.” I should do a glossary for this site.)

Here’s my short list of quicky stress-busters:

Turn on NPR and get some perspective. (Sorry to hear about Liane Hansen’s mom. NPR folks are my office-mates.)

Finish big mug of Peet’s French Roast. (I’m so fussy I even bring Peet’s in my suitcase when I travel, with a small Melitta cone, filters, and a travel mug.)

Read Tame the Web. (Someone, I forget who, noted how calm Michael Stephens is. He should do a weekly podcast called “Centering: Zen Librarianship.”)

Peek at LITA’s two test blogs. Laugh at silly “Hello World” posts. Enjoy the idea of folks doing something new.

Think about straightening up mess on desk. Change mind. As compromise, split mess into several smaller messes.

Give cats extra treats. (They then whored up to me for a good 60 seconds.)

Continue playing with searches for books etc. related to military food for my essay on chow. Dream that some of the older materials I’m looking for are digitized and findable–such as the 1896 guide for Army cooks–and I read them out of order, bwah hah hah!

O.k., now I am One with the Biblio-universe. Back to the task of reviewing the content management system.

    We share the love of Peet’s French Roast. It’s not all that I’ll drink but it is my strongly held preference. Mmm.

    Apropos of nothing, i recall that the technology of canning food was invented to support Napoleon’s armies, who marched on their stomachs through some places where there wasn’t always fresh grub to be had.

  3. I believe the story Tom Dowling refers to is in James Burke’s Connections (and probably many other places).
