Jeez, where did the week go?
One of the worst things in the world about my job is the holiday season. I'd swear, instead of putting people in a good mood- it does the exact opposite! Grouches abound here, and they all seem to need medication ( well, they do! But not the kind they're picking up it seems)
Any-who- some things that I have going on.
First, I've found a website ( that I'm sure some of you have heard of) that has some really great bootlegs on it- guitars101. I've been scouring that site for good boots for the last week, although I had a little problem with the downloads once I got them. But I figure them out- now I just have to burn the darn things! Which brings me to chore #2....
You all know that this computer "crashed" last summer. Well it seems that I have totally LOST my Roxio CD! Which means I'm having a bit of a "burning hiatus" when it comes to DVD's and CD's. But I will be out and about tomorrow, and I'll just have to get a new program. My question of the week to you all- Which one should I get? I've used Roxio and Nero in the past, and while burning CD's is easy with both, I've had problems when it comes to formatting video on both. I just don't understand the process I guess, and I need one that's "idiot-friendly"- or for the Tech-challenged. Especially since I've got quite a few shorter video clips I'd like to put all on one DVD. Ah well, I'll figure it out eventually- I usually do.
Speaking of Videos- I've notices on a few blogs people asking about the "manager's video". Well, I happen to have a copy of that- amongst others. When I get the aforementioned program, I'd be happy to share! Some others I have:
Behind the Music
Milan, Italy 1993
3 continents in one day ( kind-of hard to hear/see, but pretty cool!)
rare and recent interview footage
Unplugged and Unshaved
Beacon theater on the X tour- all three nights!
I'd be happy to share some of these with you all if you like- just e-mail me and we'll "Work it Out.......
Tomorrow Mom, Becky and I are finally going X-Mas shopping. Becky really wants to get involved this year, and quite frankly I could really use her help. She knows more about what her brother & sister want/need/have than I do at this point. ( IE- what video games/DVD's/CD's/etc they already have) I always manage to buy something for each of them that they already have, or that they don't want/need! So she should be good on that count! And it's my way of rewarding her for not pulling another one of those "I don't feel like going to school today- so I'll just skip" days. Bribery at its finest! hey- it worked!
So that's it so far. Thanks for all the birthday e-mails, text messages and wishes. I had a good one, although not much can be done on a Monday- it still was nice. Oh, and the funny part was that my Mom TOTALLY FORGOT IT! She even called Monday night- but she was so tired she totally forgot to mention it ( she was calling to get my schedule for the shopping trip!) She did call Tuesday morning and apologized, but I just thought it was funny! Maybe she'll give me a check or something tomorrow? Things that make you go HUM........ ;-)
I'm going to leave you today with a little pic I took on Thanksgiving. It's Kimmie and a little friend she made at the get-together. I just thought it was a cool picture;
Ok everyone: " AAWWWWWWWW"
Have a great hump day all!
Peace and Love, KC!
