I woke up this morning hearing people outside my window. One of them asking the following:
"Where's the nearest liquor store? I mean, one that's open
DUDE! It's Sunday morning
Then again, today the city is having Bay to Breakers
, our annual
reason to get drunk on a Sunday morning reason to run the length of the city completely naked (no lie, people do!)
footrace from one end of the city to the other. And as I'm sure head58
can attest, any foot race gets its share of people who decide it's a good a time as any to get pasted. ;)
Actually, according to the newscasts, they're saying the drinkers and the streakers are kind of sparse this year. I'm thinking either it's the police presence or it's just too damn hot out there. It's already in the mid-60s at just shy of 9am, and it's going to hit the mid-80s by midday--which is abmormally hot in this place.
I'm pretty much caught up with uploading/downloading everything back into my PC! The only things I'm missing are the eMusic downloader (easily snagged at the site) and the software for my Dana. Everything else is set up and running fine. I have to say I'm really
happy to have switched to Norton 360, as it seems to run a lot smoother (and is a lot less obtrusive) than McAfee. I'm beginning to think that my PC's a bit low on RAM, though...it does seem to be a bit slow when it comes to some issues. I'm not going to worry about that at the moment, though...
Also, downloaded my favorite mp3-creating tool from NCH
the other day, which is free and really easy to use. So this means I can start up my ongoing project of transferring some of my compilation tapes of stuff from the radio into mp3s. This is the same program I used to transfer and edit the bulk of the Flying Bohemian stuff...highly suggested if you're an audiophile that wants an easy program to toy with. ;)
Still no writing
Actually, I did
get some work done yesterday! I'm throwing together a timeline/rundown of the Eden Cycle
universe as sort of backstory, as well as a short explanation of what happens during the trilogy. chaoticmoth
pointed out (quite rightly) that I'd forgotten to post a "back page blurb" to explain what the story's about, so once that's done, all of it will be posted at edencycle
and x-posted here (to lure anyone else who's interested). Will be posting it, as well as the next chapter (or so) sometime later today!
I do apologize for those reading this...I seem to have used quite a lot of pairs of parentheses in this post. Bad habit of mine.
Hope everyone has a good day...stay cool if it's too hot out there! :)
