Biblioblogosphere “Five Things” Round-Up (plus Cite Bite demo)

I thought it might be fun to use LibWorm to quickly find all the bibliobloggers who got tagged with the “five things you don’t know about me” meme and feature some of the most fun and interesting bits from a number of them. The links use Cite Bite, so they’ll not only take you to the blog post, but will highlight the relevant bit I’m referring to. Not clear what I mean? Try clicking on some of the links.

The Vancouver Law Librarian doesn’t actually live in Vancouver.

Mark Lindner has had encounters with nuclear warheads AND (unrelatedly) is banned from donating blood.

The Cool Librarian is a champion thrower of Cast Iron Skillets.

The Wash Tub Librarian has modelled in the nude (Sorry, no images available).

In a moment that should have been in a John Hughes film, Elizabeth Lane Lawley (then co-captain of her high school dance squad) hurled obscenities at her group, went home, and burned hundreds of paper flowers she’d made for their homecoming float.

Respected Law Librarian Connie Crosby calls herself a “gym bunny.”

Joyce Valenza is now at peace with her hair.

The Lipstick Librarian became a varsity shot putter in order to meet guys.

Phil Bradley is afflicted with a butter phobia.

Sophie Brookover can watch Chinese movies without the subtitles turned on!

George Needham won two days of Jeopardy! …but can’t “get past the second level of the telephone quiz to qualify for ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?'”

Libraryman (Michael Porter) is “…concerned about the collapse of western civilization,” but tries to live life like he doesn’t think it is going to happen. (Don’t know why exactly, but I love this line.)

  1. I think the fact that I met my husband at a Waffle House and my parents met at a Burger King should totally be on this list. 🙂

  2. Rachel, if I get enough fun suggestions from readers, I’ll put up another list. 🙂

  3. You know, I actually quite agree with Libraryman. I am a short-term optimist, but feel this planet is going down the tubes. I’ve felt that way since I was about 14. You see, that could be fact #6 for me!

  4. Well Connie, now I *know* you are brilliant. I thought you bright and all, but now that I know we see eye to eye on the issue of potential demise, you teeter on genius. 🙂 If only I were a gym bunny too. I wonder though, if I did start working out a lot, could I please be a tougher animal than a bunny? 🙂

  6. I was out on maternity leave when this post came around and I just now tripped upon it. Now I feel like I need to share 😉
