How to celebrate a Chartership

Be gifted a large pink unicorn pinata by your boss.
Arrange a lunch with your Mentor and boss, explaining to Mentor that a pink friend will be joining the table, and causing much trepidation.
Walk down street with large pink unicorn pinata.
Join Mentor for lunch, and settle Uni at table.
Boss arrives and is happy her suggestion of lunch companion was able to join us.
Enjoy lunch.
Be amused throughout lunch by waiter studiously ignoring the pink unicorn at the table.
Leave and return to office.
Deflect attempts by workmen to beat poor Uni on the way, by telling them that he's too young.

Done!

Go Jennie! I want a big pink unicorn. Did you smash him? Congrats again on the Chartership!

Uni is alive and well, and living in the library here. I wanted him to watch the staff from on top of the shelving units, but he's too tall, and I refuse to break his legs or horn in order to fit him up there...for now, he loiters in a space between me and the partner. I'm not altogether sure how impressed the partner is with him, but he hasn't objected yet!

Any suggestions on where he should live / what he should do? Me and my boss did think that hanging a sign on him saying "Will work for (horn) tips" or similar might encourage peeps to use him as a change jar. Imagine how rich you'd be if he got filled!!

What's in a name?

In the case of this blog, it's a name that had no particular thought or planning behind it - I had no idea whether I would actually want to keep it going, what I would blog about, or that anyone would ever read it. Well, it's almost 4 years later (17th June 2007 is blog birthday, if we're counting), and the blog's still here, so I think we can now safely assume that it's probably going to be sticking around. And the name's been getting on my nerves a bit...you have no idea the amount of people who have found this blog looking for ladies called Jennie Law or Jenny Law. Personally, I'm not actually called Jennie Law, so I'm no help to these poor searchers, although for the right fee I could maybe consider pretending to be... I also don't blog a huge amount about law: I'm not a lawyer, I just have the job of finding stuff for lawyers. Sometimes that process amuses me, sometimes it annoys me, and I blog about it. Sometimes I write about library is

Losing the professionalism

So, recently, CILIP apparently sent out an email regarding a consultation on a change of brand image, and name. I say apparently, as despite being a member, I never got this email. When I went to the website to log in and check why it wasn't sent to me, it didn't let me log in. I tried a password reset, and that email came through, so it *can* send emails to me...but the password it sent won't let me log in. I’m losing the will to keep trying. Overall, this is kind of symptomatic of how I feel about CILIP, and how useless its IT systems are.... Anyway, the consultation is on changing CILIP’s currently, clunky and meaningless name (picked as the best of a previous bad lot, as David McMenemy showed with this link to the 2000 consultation results ) to something more meaningful and relevant is open. If you want to take part, it’s here . I was a good girl, and pootled over yesterday to take part, and after filling in all the bumph, I got to view the glorious options. Oh. My.

cpd23 Week One - Blogging

So, week one of cpd23 begins, and participants are asked to set up a blog, if they don't already have one. Well, I've had this blog (in it's previous incarnation as "Jennie Law" for four years, so I think I'm good for the "setting up and getting used to blogging" part of Thing One :) I set this blog up originally as just somewhere to share the interesting things I found around the internet, with no real expectation of many others finding or reading it (and hence very little thought about a good name). At the time, there were only one or two other law librarians that I knew of blogging, so it didn't seem like it would be something long term, but for that moment, it felt good to be able to share some random thoughts with other law librarians, and to be able to learn from their blogs. I've stuck with it, despite a few periods of thinking "I've got nothing to say!" (and then finding a month or so later that I suddenly had a flood
