Professional what, now?

My body only went to discussion section today (instead of getting much-needed sleep) because we were doing course evaluations at the end. My brain, however, stayed in its hibernative state and tried in vain to follow the discussion while being distracted by the completely unrelated and unprovoked idea that SI Computing doesn't like the name of our computer lab, the DIAD (Digital Information Access and Dissemination lab). So while others discussed information professionalism, srah's little brain chugged away and produced these lovely replacements:

  • Information Professionals' And Nerds' Electronic Manipulation Area (short and pale and young and lovely...)
  • No Eating or Drinking - Fellowship, Learning AND Especially Recreational Space
  • Workplace and Home of Information Professionals: Librarians, Archivists, SIMPLEtons and HCIers
  • SHared Electronic Exploration Place for Developing Information Professionals

Good use of time and mental energy, that.

Sheep Dip? Is that related to Ranch dressing?

I think it's what you douse sheep in to kill parasites like ticks. At least... that's what I remember from my shepherd days in the '80s.

So.... Luke dowsed Threepio in a droid dip? Do I have it correct?

Are you guys kidding? I hope you are 'cause where I come from the sheep dip is closely related to the cowpie - and I wouldn't want to step in either.

REALLY? I thought it was for killing ticks, too. But that makes it so much better!

Here's some sheep dip... and more sheep dip... and even more sheep dip.

SHEEPDIP is my favorite of all. Let's work on sneaking it into the SI vocabulary!

From The Muppet Show:

"Look at Animal, he's having fun"

"Whose that he's dancing with?"

"It looks like a sheep"

Animal: "One, Two, Three, Dip"
"Sheep Dip, Ahhhhh"

I'm totally behind WHIPLASH. Though NED-FLANDERS wins for "Best creative acronym use of a conjunction", no question.

And incidentally, I suddenly feel strangely let down that all of these aren't on the new SI t-shirts.

Next year, my friend. Next year.
