My older grandmother
called the house again at night. She just turned 89, and is in quite good health
for her age. But unfortunately she has now become something of a hypochondriac
. When ever she is left alone for a while (her husband
passed on years ago), she starts imagining
, causing him to call every relative
that hasn't yet started to pulling off the phone cord
at night. If granny can't reach anybody, he'll order an ambulance
to the hospital
, where they find out she really isn't physically sick
and send her back. Next night, the whole episode
might occur again.
The whole ordeal
is quite sad, actually.
But speaking of last night, the music
project I am working on for a friend
nicely. But after playing around with a software synth
for a while I noticed my 450MHz home PC
is too damn slow. Handling 8 oscillators
and 4 filters
each modulated by an LFO
slows things down quite a bit! :)
Softsynths have progressed incredibly in the last few years though, I use them as much as my real synthesizers
Hmm. I just noticed I have been sitting here for 2 hours with my headphones
on but nothing playing. The noding
just took me away.
. I forgot my minidisc folder
at home. One of those days, I guess.
Being an impulsive
person is strange
sometimes. Last night I started feeling an urge to buy some dry white wine
for the weekend
. Not for getting drunk
, just for the flavor
. I've never been a that much of a wine
person, but then again life
is short and one should try as much new things and possible, right? I know I will never become one of those snobbish
, but I sure as hell wouldn't want that either.
. I arrived at E2
just in time to witness
an another democrats vs republicans vs KKK vs DMan vs everybody vs XP vs EDB
Why can't we all just get a bong
I just searched for an old writeup
of mine, and found out it's no longer there. Nuked? Why?
For what I remember, its reputation
was positive and it wasn't offensive
nor otherwise awful
. The writeup wasn't that funny and it surely didn't contain much factual information
.. but that description fits to about 97% of my work! So why was that particular
? An explanation
would be nice.
Now I'm wondering if many other poor defenseless
writings of mine have suffered the same fate
, without me knowing it.
Should I start to backup
all my writeups from now on, in case somebody decides E2
is not everything
, but everything *they* like
Maybe I'll just re-submit
the thing right now? And again
after it gets removed for the second time? What would you do then? *manical laughter*
Ok.. calm down
There, I'm all normal again. Never mind that last bit.
Just had a kickass lunch
, consisting of a panini
filled with ham
, with some Pepsi Max
to wash it down with. I gotta tell you, the paninis are to die for
. Too bad it took me this long to discover
them, but better late than never. Now I'd better to do some real work
before my bosses notice I'm not doing anything besides noding
here. Will I get fired because of Everything2?
Well, since experience
has shown that following those little impulses usually pays off, I visited Alko
and got a bottle of Le Lys
. And it's good. Dry
, but not vinegar

Thanks to jessicapierce
for trying to investigate
what happened to my removed writeup. I guess it's backup time for now on. Thanks a lot
to the dumbass
responsible for destroying the piece. I hope you enjoyed it.

The best tune on the only minidisc I've got with me. It rocks.
