After all this time

Stack has been moved from server to server, template to template, cared for lovingly and ultimately, somewhat ignored. I am very glad it is still here in some way, even though it ceases to serve the purpose it once did.

If anyone is interested, I am trying to blog my research proposal, which will hopefully turn into my PhD. It’s about libraries, books and design. Start at the bottom of the page.

It’s a meme

I haven’t done a meme in ages. I saw this at Ampersand Duck and Pavlov and thought I would take it and run:

What was I doing ten years ago?

Experiencing one of the most turbulent years of my life. Finishing Uni. Starting a new part time job that would eventually lead to an entire career, whether I liked it or not.

Five snacks I enjoy in a perfect, non weight-gaining world:

1. Anything pickled (esp onions and chillis)

2. Top Deck.

3. Blue Castello (aka ‘fat on fat’)

4. Salami of any description

5. Whatever is left over from last night’s tea

Five snacks I enjoy in the real world:

1. Anything pickled (esp onions and chillis)

2. Bananas

3. Crumpets

4. Salami of any description

5. Whatever is left over from last night’s tea

Five things I would do if I were a billionaire:

1. Give up the job and write

2. Go to Anfield

3. Buy a house

4. Pay off family debts

5. Give it away

Five jobs that I have had:

1. Information Architect

2. Web Editor

3. Admin assistant

4. Book shop assistant

5. Milk delivery girl

Three of my habits:

1. The internet

2. Chewing PK orange gum

3. Reading on the loo

Five places I have lived:

1. Sawtell, NSW

2. Alstonville, NSW

3. Newtown, NSW

4. Leichhardt, NSW

5. Coogee, NSW

As I am possibly the last blogger on earth to do this meme I can pass it on to no one. If you want it, it’s yours.

5 questions

John Baker has kept his blog going while on holidays by having other lit/book/writing bloggers answer five questions. There are 40 so far in the series. (And yes, mine went up yesterday).

My idea of heaven right now

Sitting outside Fisher Library, drinking coffee and making use of the wireless access to check my email while killing time before a meeting (and telling you lot about it).

This is Stack

This is Stack. It’s about books. Why? Because as someone called Morrissey once said: “there’s more to life than books you know, but not much more.” You got that right sunshine.
