In honour of the new year, I have just converted my music to itunes. Again. I tried once before, a year or so ago, but it didn't take. This time I will stay away from any buttons which look suspect. Nineteen hours it took to convert all my music over from WMA to MP3.
The first song I chose for the inaugural listen was Radiohead's Gagging Order, and then itunes randomly chose a Thom Yorke song for the next one. I think we are going to get along just fine.
Although yesterday was my first official day of being a lazy unemployed bastard, today it actually feels real, with the Spousal Unit heading back to work and the Resident Offspring to school. It feels pretty great, to be honest. I got a big grocery shop done and those idiots mislabeled the big slabs of salmon as pork shoulder, so I scooped up a beautiful salmon half for six bucks. No I don't feel guilty; I spend enough damn money in that place.
I am devoting this morning to finalizing the Lazy Unemployed Bastard List, that document that divulges all that I intend to accomplish during this period of having no real purpose in life. Some of the jobs are mundane and involve much sorting through of cupboards and closets and turfing crap found mouldering therein, while others are long overdue and involve finally doing something about that pile of crap in the basement that I started sorting through last winter.
Some of the chores are scary and may unearth larger issues (ie determining why the bathtub is leaking), while others should be really fun (ie replacing the ceiling lamp in the dining room). Between cleaning out my email inbox, revamping the home filing system, teaching myself guitar, and breaking into the freelance writing market, not to mention upping my daily exercise, I am going to be so fit, fabulous, organized, and famous, you won't be able to stand me.
Lazy Unemployed Bastard files trivia item - the soundtrack in Taxi Driver is offputting and detracts from the film. Yes or no?
