Blog Action Day 2007

Today is Blog Action Day where bloggers everywhere blog about one topic. This year’s topic: the environment. I kind of addressed this in a previous post in August, but heck, it’s something I’m rather passionate about.

Environment factoid: did you know that Starbucks gives their customers a 10 cent discount if you bring your own cup? And that their cups are not recyclable (they have a “plastic” liner) even though they are made from some recycled fiber? So next time you go for coffee, bring your own cup. It’s better for the environment, and that 10 cents may not sound like much, but it does add up. Many coffee shops give discounts when you bring your own cup. Just ask.

And you all can stop making fun of me for bringing a cloth napkin in my lunch now. Seriously. You don’t make fun of my (admittedly somewhat extensive) use of tupperware-type containers or for bringing my own non-plastic spoon to eat my yogurt with, so lay off on the napkin grief. Geez.

I’m learning to laugh at myself on a daily basis. I’m a librarian (cataloger) and I love it. My job involves all things metadata related in any and all formats. I have been known to cause a ruckus when necessary (aka troublesome cataloger) and make no apologies for it. I have a passion for continuing education and teaching. I’m a newbie coder (still learning). I like to cook. I’m a fan of rugby (go Australian Wallabies!) and ice hockey (go Detroit Red Wings!). I’m car-free and bike/walk a lot. I’m learning to love running one stride at a time. I own (and love) a very mouthy cat with a punk attitude and a slightly neurotic rescue mutt.
