From Know You’re Meme:
I Kiss You! is a popular internet meme based on the personal homepage of Mahir Cagri from Izmir, Turkey, who unknowingly pioneered the prototype of online dating profiles in 1999.
The site first appeared on the now defunct free site host xoom.com and was one of the first widely circulated Internet memes, up there with Hamster Dance and Dancing Baby.
Now archived @ http://mahir.faithweb.com/original.htm

This is one of the few children’s programs that made me wish I worked in a public library. Children bring their stuffed animals to the library, do a story time in their pajamas, and then leave their animals behind for a library sleepover. In the morning typically there are wonderful photos of what the animals did overnight. However, Lawrence Public Library in Lawrence, KS recently did one better and created a video during the event. I present it to you here in all its Internet meme glory.
The more Internet memes you know, the funnier this is.
If you’re reading this blog and you don’t know who I am by now, I have just one question for you: why are you reading this blog?
I’m back from CIL2009 and I’m declaring myself a Shover & Maker!
Ok, for the record, I’m the Technology Innovation Librarian for the Nebraska Library Commission. Yes, I’m one of those “state workers” (say it like it’s gum stuck on the bottom of your shoe if you want to say it right.) Great title right? But what does it mean? Well to me it means that I get to play and investigate then pass on what I’ve learned to other librarians.
Does this get me in trouble sometimes? Of course it does but if I’m not frustrating someone, I’m not doing my job right. Change breeds frustration. Some cope well, others… not so much.
As for a project I’m proud of that would be the WiFI Connectivity Grants I ran last year. IN the end more than 50 libraries now offer free public WiFi that didn’t before. I’ve been training for almost 15 years now but I’d finally run a project from beginning to end that has a direct effect on libraries and their patrons. This year is getting Nebraska Libraries on Plinkit. (What have I gotten myself into?)
I make. I shove. Sometimes in that order. Sometimes not.
This one is a little bit of a homework assignment. Look through your office and your home and find all the books that have a bookmark in them indicating you’re intending to finish that book one day. (If it’s just marking a spot you want to reference, that doesn’t count.)
My results: Home = 36, Work = 7
(I’ve been reorganizing my collection and decided to collect all the books I’m in the middle of onto a single shelf. Turns out I needed more than one.)
