Back in my mom’s house, with my new laptop, PS2, and unemployed Stever as my sidekick, life has become one long, dragged out day. Or, maybe more accurately, the same day over and over again. Since I want to conserve as much real estate as possible and make my move easy, I’ve convinced myself I should load everything onto my laptop before I head out to New York. Unfortunately, scope creep gets more and more out of control: first I was just going to shift all the files on my old computer over, now I’m scanning in all my old, physical photos. Who knows what’s next!

Basically, I do realize it’s important to be prepared for when I head out. My laptop is going to be my creative headquarters – I want to be able to have everything I could possibly need at my fingertips since I will be 3 hours away from it if I forget something. But I’m starting to get the feeling it’s just another subconcious excuse to stay for a while. At least I have come to realize that … it’s been a nice, week-long vacation, but I start the wheels up again tomorrow!

Anyway, my mom still has dial up AOL (can you believe it?) and my brother’s computer is constantly hooked up to it (the joke is, if he ever signs off, the internet will cease to function). This means I don’t get to do a lot of online stuff … and I’m starting to go crazy. Call me addicted, but so many of my projects are online related, and it drives me nuts not to be able to work on them. I promise to get to finishing the euroblog. It is only half-done and terribly designed (I only had a couple of minutes each time I found wifi access in Paris to get stuff done), and contains many spelling/grammatical errors and just plain blank spots where I didn’t remember the name of something.

Also coming down the pipe (or “coming down the pike” if you’re Howard Stern) is the musicDB and photoDB! The musicDB is completely coded and 99% of my songs have been entered into the database. I just need to enter in my latest crop in the past 9 months and it’ll be up! The photoDB is only 50% done coding, but I’ll devote a lot more time to that when the musicDB is complete. I know I’ve been mentioning these for a while, but they haven’t escaped my thoughts. Like any great work of art or entertainment, they have just gloriously missed their original deadlines (and when I miss a deadline I miss it!).

There hasn’t been too much excitement in my life lately. I visited King’s Dominion with Cassie Monday and it was awesome. I think we hit every single ride and the place just feels like home since I’ve gone to it so many times (though nowhere near as many as she has). Besides that I’ve just been slowly getting through loading my comp up with shit and treading water in my projects. Boring blog update, I know, but something had to be said!

    Scanning in old physical! You must be missing big city-ness big time over there. If not then you love SteveroftheDVDver and his crossed legs for life.

    Yeah, I’m way out of control. Next weekend is the cutoff to hit up NYC!
