My self-summary
I decided it is better to scream...Silence is the real crime against humanity.
-Nadezhda Mandelstam

How do you summarize a person?

Yes, I know my profile leaves something to be desired.
Want to know more... try asking me. I dare you
What I’m doing with my life
HUZZAH!!

I really didn't realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous group. They are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn't mess with them
-Michael Moore

At the moment I am a librarian at an elementary school in LAUSD. A position that has been cut and reinstated twice now.

"There is no evidence that more standards and tests will raise achievement. There is plenty of evidence that investing in libraries and librarians will raise achievement."
-Stephen Krashen, Prof Emeritus, USC

Every child has a right to an education. Help keep California schools from being privatized. The present school board has already handed over 3 high schools to charters.
I’m really good at
Drawing Blood. Yes that's what I said! I would have said phlebotomy but no one ever knows what that is...

Oh and I took apart my washing machine and put it back together. With not a piece left over. And it worked!!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read. And i'm addicted to books. Runs in the family. Couldn't possibly pick a favorite. I'll read in any genre, but i'm partial to historical fiction ( Uris, Jakes, Greogory, Michener). And of course non-fiction; Tipping Point, Blink, The Primate's Memoir and anything covering psychology/psychiatry, CA native plants and gardening, and green cleaning. And I love those books that tell you how to do almost anything.

Movies. Most any musical, older Disney Classics, 10th Kingdom, Dirty Dancing, Heathers

TV. Dead like Me, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Good Eats (yep that's a cooking show).

Radio. Listen to NPR, KPFK, and KPCC.
The six things I could never do without
Hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why is it that so few people on here respond to instant messages?

A person's attention changes ever 3 seconds or so. Thus, I think about millions of things every day.
One of these days, maybe I'll keep track of every thought.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Die Gedanken Sind Frei, my thoughts freely flower
Die Gedanken Sind Frei, my thoughts give me power
No scholar can map them, no hunter can trap them

No man can deny, Die Gedanken Sind Frei
No man can deny, Die Gedanken Sind Frei

I think as I please and this gives me pleasure
My conscience decrees this right I must treasure
My thoughts will not cater to duke or dictator

No man can deny, Die Gedanken Sind Frei
No man can deny, Die Gedanken Sind Frei

And should tyrants take me and throw me in prison
My thoughts will burst free like blossoms in season
Foundations will crumble and structures will tumble

And free men will cry, Die Gedanken Sind Frei
And free men will cry, Die Gedanken Sind Frei

- Pete Seeger
You should message me if
I don't have much,
You don't have much,
Why?
Why don't we both share a load?
-The Bobs
