"i bought new hiking boots so you'd think i was cool"
So, apparently the reason my computer won't read the hard drive I just bought (or the digital camera I bought from Greg) is that I'm running ME rather than XP. I can upgrade for $100 or I could just buy another computer -- though there's no easy/efficient way to transfer the data from this computer to a new one. When I bought my computer(summer of 2001) I didn't see I'd ever need CD-burning capabilities, so I didn't spring for that extra feature -- though I did eventually buy an external CD burner. Of course it doesn't burn DVDs. My brother says CDs hold 700mb, so that's 10gb on 15 CDs. I have, no lie, 12.5GB of music -- which is ridiculous. (Who have I become?)
I'm also considering getting an iPod shuffle or something so I can listen to music while working out. I am becoming so assimilated to the dominant culture it's almost sickening.
[Going through my music to see if I really want to keep everything, I'm reminded of stuff I'd forgotten about. Which is shameful, 'cause some of it's stuff like Bif Naked. This is such a nostalgia trip.
Work was so busy
today! Loads of scheduling (with Prof.B. working from home and actually responding to his e-mail), then a list of articles to print out from Prof.D. and then some other tasks. I got most stuff done by the time I left at 5, but wow. I don't like that feeling of trying to do four different things at once -- especially when there's this constant back-and-forth.
I got a text msg from Mike (Eric's): "A couple of friends are going to lime light saturday night. You three are invited. Maryalice,elizabeth, and michelle." Googling
, this is apparently karaoke (etc.). And kind of freaks me out.
I did the elliptical today, and I didn't feel like I was pushing super-hard, but I made really good time.1mi @ 10:25min
2mi @ 20:48min
2.84mi @ 30min
I saw upsidown
on my way home, though I didn't say anything to her; it's not like we were ever close or anything.
