Enter: New library assistant Violeta

Hi all!

My name is Violeta (pronounced "vee-oh-LETT-a," more or less). I just started working at CLP Teen a little over a week ago and I *definitely* want to get to know you guys.

To introduce myself, here's some random Violeta trivia.
  • Even though Spanish is my first language, I can't roll my "R"s to save my life.
  • I lived in Japan for three years. Just about the coolest thing I did there was play several koto (Japanese harp) concerts at a zazen temple on a hill. I don't know, I might never top that one.
  • I'm happiest when eating sushi or breakfast tacos with a creamy cilantro salsa. Yumminess! See this? I had just about everything edible on this table-- and more-- during one of my soba outings.
  • My favorite anime is Azumanga Daioh. We have it at the library so check it out if you haven't already! I can't wait for the new season of Code Geass. And can someone explain FLCL to me? I enjoyed it and I loved the music, but I was at a complete loss...

I'm a bit of a camera fiend so it was tough finding one picture that truly captured my essence. I think this one is at least interesting. It was taken in Osaka, Japan, with a friend and a trio of Japanese fashionistas rocking the yamanba style. I'm the one making the really weird peace sign. I don't know what I was thinking.

Anyway, if you ever want to practice your mad Spanish, French, or Japanese skills-- or if you just want to talk about your favorite book or manga-- come on over and let's chat.
