"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

Heidi's favorite quotes

"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

Me--in a Comic!

More Tech fun tonight. One of the tasks I've given the teens is to create a comic strip using http://www.bitstrips.com/.

My first impression (when I only had a few minutes to browse the sight) was not very favorable. It seemed so restrictive.

But I had more time to play with it this evening.

And had a lot more fun.

Especially as I thought of something to work around the fact that they have absolutely no props for books. (I know!!!!!!)

So, here is my first comic strip. Enjoy!

Okay, now I see it. Maybe my computer was on the fritz again. Hilarious!
