About me

Gender Female
Industry Museums or Libraries
Occupation Market analyst
Location Dublin, Ohio, United States
Introduction I have a library degree from the University of British Columbia, worked as an academic librarian for 12 years before joining OCLC where I've been since 1997--sort of.
Interests gardening, mystery novels, cooking and eating (especially Italian), wine, cars and driving, my extended family including all the animals and thinking big 'what if' thoughts
Favorite Movies Wings of Desire, Stars Wars I, Shreck, any Jim Jarmusch film - but I actually don't like movies much. I never watch TV.
Favorite Music Bruce Springsteen, Diana Krall and many other female singers in that genre, almost anything Celtic (although definitely not James Galway), REM, Talking Heads (and David Byrne), Leonard Cohen, Craig Armstrong, opera ( Wagner), Blue Note recordings and instrumental stuff in the "new age" genre because I find it smooths the jangly moments.
Favorite Books The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Dandelion Wine, anything by Alice Munro and Carol Shields, gardening books with lots of pictures

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying "poop deck"?

I wouldn't. Laughter would be mandatory.
