Twilight Takes A Rain Check
Yeah I know - I'm gonna break records and all that jazz. Two entries on one day.
However, I'm having a mini-celebration, as I've officially passed the audition and will be part of this fall's Payson Choral Society. :D I was relatively confident, because I've sung for years. Still, you never know. Your voice can crack. You can have a brain fart and not remember the words to America the Beautiful. You can lose all sense of rhythm. You can become Michael Jackson.
Oh, never mind. I could never be Michael Jackson. While I like boys, they have to be over 21. Preferably CONSIDERABLY over 21. Not to mention the fact that I'm female, was born that way, my birth certificate reads that way. Oh, and I'm human, too. Not sure MJ can say the same any more. I think he's more bionic or maybe a bio-engineered android, like Data only with less class and more makeup.
I really, REALLY have to get our system up and working. I need to get things online and set to go. If I can even just get the scheduler working, it'll talk nice with our existing playback mechanism, I think, so that alone will help. Getting the final installation done, though - that'll be seriously nice. However, before I transfer everything over, I have GOT to get all of our current ads burned to a CD so we're covered on all fronts. Then reload Windows and slap in the new software and we're good to go.
Let's hope this sucker cooperates.
The move is still (I think) a few weeks off, though not long. The plan is to have this system up and working prior to the transition, then move one machine. That way we're off the air no more than maybe - MAYBE - half an hour while we transport things over to the new location. Main thing is the transmitter. I can make a smooth transition on the computers but nothing will substitute for the transmitter when we move it.
As to the wonderful world of men, I'm not ready to go to The Twilight Zone: Part II just yet. I had a glass of wine with my dinner and I'm pretty well blitzed. I am NOT a drinker. One glass of anything remotely alcoholic is my limit. Anything more and I may be feeling fine, but I'll probably end up feeling fine from beneath the table, thank you very much.
I have zero ambition tonight - can you tell? I'm stalling because I most definitely don't want to do actual work... Furthermore, the way I'm feeling at the moment I don't think I'm actually safe to do actual work...
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
