For the lulz

I'm a disk and a half from finishing MacGyver. My Pre-post-show blues are already starting to kick in; finishing a show that has such a long run is both exciting ("yay I are done!") and sad ("onoz I are out of MacGyvers!").

Fortunately, someone geekier than myself has been hard at work for a while, creating MacGyver (and Stargate) macros. I present to you: LOLMac.

And now I suppose I should get back to packing and school stuff. *sigh*

Fun With Scanners

I'm using the new scanner to clear out a ton of paper clutter. It's been great as far as organizing and uncluttering, but a painful exercise in not being a pack rat. For example, it was hard to toss the folder full of magazine clippings, even though they're now stored on my hard drive. Go figure.

Also? I'm holding on to my old TIP scrapbooks with tooth and nail. It'll be a while before I get them scanned in completely (man, those things are long); at that point, the test will be to see if I can get rid of the old copies. For some reason they've been living in my desk since I moved into the new apartment, and I never found a home for them.

Recycling them will be hard, but I'm loving going through the old photos. I found myself on this page tonight:

You can click it bigger. See me? Here, let me help:

Yep, I was rockin' the giant glasses look. I may go back to the huge round frames next time I update my prescription.

Ah, TIP. I no longer recognize many of the faces from the photos, but some of them bring back completely random memories. I do believe that the ham standing in front of me in that picture was named Eric, and that he had an unhealthy fascination with Koosh balls. In fact, I seem to remember something about a Koosh ball poem....

Things That Happen

I got offered an interview for a summer position with AISD! I have plenty of experience for the position, there's paid training (my CPR and First Aid expired not too long ago), and the pay seems good. I will update more once I've had the interview.

There are new things up over at my etsy shop! There are now matryoshka doll cards up in sets of 6 cards and sets of 4 cards. And while you're over there, the happy blue flower necklace and jump for joy pink necklace could use a little love, too.

We're well into season 5 of MacGyver. They're getting much more into the social/environmental issues this season (student protests in China, rhino poaching in Africa, etc.), which is alternately really interesting and horribly cheesy. Also, it's really weird to see things like super-young Cuba Gooding Jr. playing the part of a young bounty hunter ... and then showing up as a farm hand in the "old west dream sequence" two episodes later. I do love seeing Murdoc back again, though :-D.

Yanni Voices Update

Hey, guys!

Just a quick post to remind you that the Yanni Voices PBS Special --which I wrote about previously --is premiering tonight around 8:30pm. Or if, like me, you're going to be standing in line to try and see the Watchmen premier tonight, you can catch the special again next week on the 8th, at 10pm. The full schedule is up on the web.

If you missed my last post, you can see a clip introducing the Yanni Voices PBS Event on the main website. There's also a good PBS Special Teaser Video available, to give you a better idea of what the music sounds like.

This heads-up about a great music special brought to you by the lovely people over at the One2One Network.
