 Hello, and happy Giving Tuesday! We're going to be erratic again for the next week or so, but we'll be back for the holidays and into 2022.  Thanks for reading and bearing with our random 2021 postings!

Happy Friday! Next week, posts will be scattered. If we don't post again before the holiday, happy Thanksgiving / harvest time to all!

From Zazoo: RuPaul may hate it, but this tree ornament is hilarious.

I got up early this morning and saw the partial lunar eclipse. If you didn't, fear not, there are many photos!

Have a safe and spiffy weekend/week, everyone. See you soon.

 Seen in a New York Times article today: The Manhattan District Attorney's office has an Antiquities Trafficking department, and they're busy!

Is that a bird, a plane, a drone, or a UFO in the sky? There’s a handy mapping tool out now which enables you to look up the incidents! Evidently there were a lot of laser lights seen near where I live recently. I suspect cats chasing laser pointers.

The “open office” concept ran into some spectacularly bad timing last year. Here are some new ideas on how to work.  Will they be better? (Who knows?)

Hello there!

Today we have a video in lieu of links. One of the bands in regular rotation at SpookyLibrarians HQ is the Innocence Mission, and Bunny just discovered an old video of one of their best songs. Enjoy!

 Happy Monday, everyone!

Music: The 1980s were awesome, and here's the proof.

History: A new book describes some of the leading female criminals of ye olden days.

Culture: Do you know your international cuisine? Apparently I don't, because I failed a bunch of these questions in a row! (Click "start" and don't worry about the error message; the site works fine.)

 Happy Friday, all!

Mateusz Skutnik, who you may remember from my posts about Submachine, is back with a new game, Slice of Sea!

From Zazoo: Wet Leg is an incredibly hot band right now. You may also remember them from an earlier post!

We're still playing games online with friends, and we recently discovered Gartic Phone, which is hilarious. Try it!

Have a safe and spiffy weekend, everyone. See you next week.

 I have quite a few issues with the Vatican in general, but their new art space, opening to the public, looks pretty great so far.

Meanwhile, across America, street lights are turning purple. An homage to Prince? A plea for political unity? Nope, just defective LED lights. I was hoping these would become the new normal, actually.

 Hello! Believe it or not, we're still here! And we're getting back into the swing of things with this link, sent earlier by Cassandra, about The Spiritualist. Settle in and read all about the spooky happenings!
