About Me

Welcome to my blog!

I’m serious about that.

My name is Diana and I’m a 29-year-old from New York. I got my Masters in Library Science in December 2007, which makes me a librarian (I know, I’m awesome). I have yet to find a position, so instead I put off The Real World and went back to school in Ireland for a second M.Phil in Medieval Language, Literature, and Culture. I’m filled with random and rather useless knowledge, but I think that may come with the job description. You can see my resume here.

My main interests are food, librarianship, and books. I used to post on a Sunday-Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule, but this has fallen to the wayside with schooling. Alas! I have every intention of getting back into a regular blogging schedule once I have a regular life schedule, but that’s anathema when one is in school. Here was the plan:

  • Sunday – Book review day! I’ll post reviews of books that I’m reading and books I’ve loved in the past.
  • Monday – This is the day I get to post delicious recipes and wax poetic about food in general.
  • Wednesday – I’m a budding librarian, so Wednesday is the day I get down to business: article reviews, thoughts on trends and problems, and general library issues.
  • Friday – Ah, my day for random ramblings! This is where I’ll put all other miscellaneous information that I’ve been wanting to blog about, funny stories, and generally write whatever I want without thought to applicable content. This is the day I let my inner hamster run free (perhaps dressed in a tutu).

If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to email me at

And now, some fun facts!

  • It’d be nice to be a professional student;
  • I love accents, but can’t figure out why people can’t understand me when I say something like “coffee” or “laundry”;
  • Books are the way to my heart, followed closely by food;
  • I think life is sad without at least a little whimsy;
  • I aim to never mature above 5-years-old, at least in some way;
  • Mayonnaise is my mortal enemy, the Dr. Horrible to my Captain Hammer (because Nathan Fillion rules);
  • I’m constantly convinced someone or something is watching me like I’m on TV;
  • I can stare at a wall and entertain myself, it’s one of the glories of being a daydreamer;
  • I love old B-horror movies;

More to come…

      Lol, yup! It’s in the repertoire. As Ursula over at Red Wombat Studio (click to pic to get the link) says in the description of this picture:

      “Every librarian I have known has had this look in their repertoire though–‘I am going to be pleasant and helpful and professional no matter what. Nevertheless, I stand in awe of how far you have pushed the boundaries of human stupidity.’

    I did it, I looked in the dictionary and yup, there you were, the photo right next to the definition of “quirky”. I know I’ll be stopping back for updates from time to time.

      Ah, yes. I assume this was in the “Dictionary of Awesome”. Interesting fact, if you look under “heart-breakingly sexy” you’ll get a bunch of definitions and at the end, “see also: Librarian”.

      I totally approve of your email name, by the way 😉

        Well I already knew the “heart-breakingly sexy” part. Melvil knows all (at least he’s working on it). 😀
