"She really needs to sort out her priorities..."

Please tell me someone out there gets that reference.

Anyway. Last week in Russian Choir, I asked if I could record us this week, and then we could have recordings of our songs, which is cool, and makes it easier to remember them, etc. This has been implemented, and as of Monday, we had 11 tracks.

The unfortunate part of this process, is that in order to create space for large Audacity (the program I'm using, as this is being recorded via the built-in microphone on my laptop) files, I've been having to delete files off my computer. I can get them back later, since I've got them on my external hard drive, but I've been deleting mostly music files, since all I lose is the play count.

But today, in an attempt to clear a gig of space quickly, I picked some larger artists, so I could delete several albums at once. So, I feel a little sad:

I just deleted a whole bunch of R.E.M. albums.

My computer can't play 'Losing My Religion'. It can't play 'Exhuming McCarthy'.

This means, that one of these days, I'm going to have to sort some things out, so that the things that are on my computer are actually the things I want, and not just lots of little small files that are a pain to move around.

But that's not happening in St. Petersburg. I'm almost all packed, and will soon commence a day and a half of complete FREE TIME. Basically, I shall wander around, and (attempt to) refrain from buying more books.

Also, I've barely knit this week. But I did read all of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Douglas Adams) in two and a half days. I really need to find time to read more.

Okay, here's what I have so far:

Before we head to the airport Sunday night, we need to pick you up a veggie burrito at Chipotle AND toss _Out of Time_ and _Document_ in the car.

Also, thanks for a free TWDQ! ("Would that scene in 'High Fidelity' still work if, when Dick walks in, Rob were on a laptop sorting mp3s with iTunes instead of surrounded by stacks of vinyl, reorganizing his record collection autobiographically?")

See you Sunday!

Do you recommend the book?

'High Fidelity' or the book version of the reference in the title?

Either way, both are absolutely brilliant. Also, High Fidelity outlines who I sometimes sort of dream of turning into.
