About My Library
Some day I'll add all my books. For now at least I'll try to track my reading. Friends half-joked that I got a library degree just to supply my book habit. They may be right.
About Me
I'm a programmer/librarian hybrid, working for the U of I.

I love games of all types, although lately I've been focusing on "gamers" board games and card games.

On the culinary front, lately I've been getting into sausage making and hoping to get more into beer making. The sausage making stems mostly from the fact I really like a wide variety of sausage and just can't find many good ones locally.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, by far. If I ever got more money and time than I knew what to do with I suspect I'd be one of those people who end up creating elaborate boobytraps and the like to terrify trick-or-treaters.

I having been reading more comic books, sci-fi, and fantasy the past few years instead of "serious literature." Not that I don't like serious literature, I just tend to notice the other stuff more.
