Movie Review: Sugar

Miguel "Sugar" Santos is a young Dominican baseball player who gets his big break in the US minor leagues. His story of struggle, culture clash and baseball is optimistic without being "Hollywood" and realistic without being super-gritty.

I highly recommend that anyone who has the chance to see this movie, go see it. Hopefully it will get a wider release soon.

Intriguing Billboard

For the last week or so I have been passing a mysterious billboard on the southwest corner of Figueroa and Rosecrans. It has a white background with a photograph of a kitten. Next to the kitten in letters almost as tall as the kitten is SEX in all caps. There is a line of text above and below the word SEX but they are too small to read from the car.

Has anyone else seen this billboard? Does anyone know what it means?

Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009!

2008 had a lot going for it:

1. Beatty committee appointment
2. 1st of many anniversaries with my wonderful boyfriend
3. A new reference librarian at work
4. Another year on the Summer Reading Program committee at work
5. My first California Library Association conference

but then I wrecked my car. Fortunately there were no serious injuries besides the cars. It was pretty low speed.

2009 is starting off with a beautiful, new, silver Corolla and a wonderful boyfriend, friends, family and colleagues.

My resolutions this year are simple:

1. Don't check any more books out of the Library until I have read all the books I've purchased and received as gifts over the last couple of years: (still needs more additions)


2. Get rid of old magazines. Go through them, cut out pertinent articles and recycle.

Happy New Year everyone!
