My Primary Task over the next two days is to drive to Omaha, NE, to help a relative/friend move up here - YAY! Little does the poor bastard know that as we return to Moosesota, watching the miles crawl by, he is being inexorably drawn into my web, my conspiracy, my deep dark plan - to help me remodel my basement, creating my seat of seating, from which I shall
get the Dish football package so I can see Badgers and Packer games! take over the world!!!11!!*
Given the fact that I am, in general, crabby, caffeinated, diabetic, and far too dignified to even be doing this, I have a few preparation-type things to do this morning. I am taking the essential step of continuing the Endless Project, wherein I:
1.) Rip all my CDs to laptop - I am down to 20 or so, 19 if you consider the White Album a Document(tm) as opposed to a two disk record.
- This is my current task, I want to finish Earth Wind and Fire, Bill Hicks, and President Of The United States Of America within the next 25 minutes or so, get them to iPod. I'll have Stephanie Miller on the radio for part of each way, but then will be stuck with Minnesota, Iowa, and Nebraska radio. Can you say "Garth Brooks should be beaten to death with a combine? Good, I knew you could!" -
2.) Burn all of my dad's (and mine) vinyl albums to CD. He has some Time-Life Folk Music Of America stuff that I can't wait to get to. Unfortunately, this process is a pain. To break the albums into individual digital tracks you have to sit there and stop the burn and then restart after every song - which is not, in and of itself, difficult, but seeing as you have to be in close proximity to this album-CD gadget I have it is time consuming.
3.) Burn all of our VCR tapes to DVD - god, I CANNOT FRAKKIN WAIT to see 'Local Hero' again!
Other preparations include reminding myself how creaky and dignified I am. The Two-Days-Worth-Of-Pills boxes, clocking in at way too much; thermos of coffee, of which we will see how much actually gets out of the driveway; change of clothes for dinner tonight, because Nebraska...
