It is you know–all about me. At least I like to think so, which is why I blog. My name is Olivia and I am a thirtysomething librarian in Minnesota. This is my record of all the things that I do as I deal with my job, my unruly family, my adorable niece and nephews, and more friends than any girl should be lucky enough to have.
I started blogging in December of 2007 because my friend and fellow librarian, Meg, was chastising me for not being an integral member of the digital world. She may have even accused me of being a luddite. So, I began blogging at a little site I stumbled across, called Mindsay. If you want to read my first 500 (give or take) posts, you can follow this link.That will give you a fairly accurate representation of who I am.
It didn’t take me long to figure out that I really enjoy blogging, much to my everlasting surprise. I finally outgrew Mindsay and, while I’ll miss the “small town” community feel I enjoyed there, I’m quite happy to be venturing out into the big, bad blogging world.
I hope you enjoy my stories and photos (lots of photos!). This is an exciting time in my life, full of change. I recently bought my first house, I am wading through the politics of my swanky new job(s), I lost my beloved car after several years of faithful service and replaced her with an old, high mileage car and I just switched blog sites. All that fodder should make for some worthwhile reading.
You’ll find that I like to share stories about the ordinary things that happen, skewed with my humor and perspective. I’ll also talk a lot about the books I read and televisions shows I watch, along with my never-ending obsession with Christian Kane. My family makes for some good reading and anything that gives me a chance to take a picture or two for the blog is right up my alley. I’m pretty much all about
seriousness and gravity humor and sarcasm. Leave me a comment and I’ll swing by your place to meet you.
Thanks for stopping by, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy yourself while you’re here. Whatever you do, don’t take me seriously, life is for living and as Charlie Chaplin once said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted”. If I’m not having fun, it isn’t worth it for me. So, have fun while you’re here and laugh a lot. I probably meant it to be funny anyway.
