Khan, Kahn, Caan, Khaaaaaaaan!!! A Homophone Trick for Email

by Naomi House, MLIS previously published 5/23/14 Khan, Kahn, Caan, Khaaaaaaaan!!! A Homophone Trick for Email Back in 2007 when I was helping my husband set up his moving labor business Khan Moving, LLC, we realized early on that approximately half of his customers misspelled his name; his name is Sana Khan but they spelled…

Sana Khan …Success Story

My non-librarian husband on his birthday! There is a famous quote that, to paraphrase, says that one should never date anyone who doesn’t own books or read a lot.  I find it to be a foolish quote.  Think of all that you can learn from someone raised in an oral tradition, or someone who simply…

The Day I Was a Mover (not a Shaker)

by Naomi House, MLIS The Day I Was a Mover (not a Shaker) I have done many odd and not-so-odd jobs over the years. I sold vacuum cleaners by phone and door to door for all of 3 days in the mid-1990s. I worked food service twice and have no stomach for the smell of…

Gone to look for America

We just got back from a whirlwind four day trip from suburban DC (MD) to Chattanooga, Nashville, Memphis, Little Rock, back to Memphis, St Louis, Charleston and back home again. 3,000 miles later we are madly addicted to the open road. Perhaps there is some way we can combine trucking and librarianship? We spent this…

I’m back from Istanbul!

I am definitely healthier and more rested than when I left and so thankful for the short break. For my birthday and our anniversary my husband Sana and I went to the beautiful and historic city of Istanbul, Turkey. Unfortunately (for him) I brought my cold with me and now he has it but we…

Ask Naomi: What do you do in your spare time?

Glad you asked! First of all what exactly is spare time? LOL- I don’t think I have found any in the last few years. In addition to my work as a reference librarian for a DC area government contractor and my work on INALJ (I Need a Library Job) I work on my husband’s moving…
