Because eff Presidents' Day. 

So my birthday is Sunday, and though my cataloging day is Monday, I imagine I'll spend at least a few birthday hours cataloging zines, cuz that's what I do.

This portrait of my cats was my birthday present from my dearest zine friend, commissioned from another zine friend

It's been a while, but I'm back in the zine cataloging saddle and dedicate this week's additions to my sister Danna, whose 30th birthday it is today. 

This photo of Danna is fitting for a blog post about zines. 

Zine-like publications (authored by a nun) I saw at the SAKALA library in Cite Soleil, Port-au-Prince, Haiti

This is what I look like when I'm cataloging zines from home, as I was on December 30.

While I was cataloging zines, two of my awesome colleagues were talking about our summer BambooDiRT project. #allaboutthestring
