There's a regional library conference in Cincinnati for technical services librarians (librarians who work in the back room of a library as I do). Well, they extended their search for presenters for the conference because not enough people have sent proposals. Today, they sent a e-mail saying that there was 20 slots open, then 17...I said to my boss that it's the closest I've ever seen to a conference begging for presenters. So I figured that I had a good shot, but what to present? Then I thought of our "weeding" project (choosing books to withdraw from the collection). Our system was based on a system that we used at the previous library that I had worked at, and I knew that a librarian there had given a webinar about the weeding project. I fired off an e-mail to her, and she's very interested in presenting with me. I'm working on a proposal (assuming that we have travel money in our budget, which my boss is going to check tomorrow). Wish us luck!

I also thought of a poster presentation for the big annual library conference, which is in Chicago this year. I couldn't attend both conferences for the entire time, but I could dash up to Chicago, do the presentation, and come right back down to Lincoln. It can be hard to get accepted though. We'll see.

All this thinking has tired me out :) The apartment management sprayed for bugs this morning, so I had to get up early, although I did go back to sleep for a while. I want to go to sleep soon.

I had chills last night, even though the heat was on 68 degrees F. So I left the heat on 68, and went to sleep with all my blankets piled on me. This morning I woke up with a really upset stomach, still chilled, and a headache. I told work that I wasn't coming in, and went back to sleep. I woke up at 3:30 PM and fed the hungry cats. I decided to try eating something, so I made some Ramen. I'm going back to sleep when I'm done with it.

I've been having weird experiences where my body falls asleep, or at least feels really heavy, but I'm still awake. I started dreaming while awake once.

It took me multiple tries to type this, so that says something.

I keep having nightmare after nightmare. I'm trying to convince myself that none of it happened. I need to stay up for a while.

Maybe I'll work on my librarian blog. I found a WordPress theme that I like.
