Is that a welcome to you or to me? Anyway, welcome to Archival Trash, your bloggedly low-tech, often low-brow place for random musings on archives, sports, and other things that come into my view from time to time.

First, a little about me. I am a professionally trained and employed archivist ("Ich bin ein Arkiver..."), working in a small archives in Maine. I recently moved here with my wife, Mrs. Archivalist, and my cat, [She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named], so expect a few upcoming posts about our adventures as we explore our new home. Don't expect any posts about the details of my job, tho, because I value my employment too much. However, feel free to post comments about your job at any time, as we'd love to share and savor your discontent.

Again, welcome aboard. If at any time you feel a little sick, please sit down and breathe into the bag provided.

1) How many archivists are there in Maine? Won't the other archivist figure you out when they rememeber they didn't start a blog?

2) I object to being classified as a "Distraction" as opposed to "Good Folks."

3) As I just started a new job today, I have nothing job-related to gripe about.

4) Thank God college football has started.

5) I like making lists.

Hey Archivalist! Did you get buried in the snow up there in Maine? Stanley Cup pics will be up on my blog soon. There are lots of them.
