All sound exiting my laptop exits slightly slower (and at a lower tone, like a Doppler shift) than it should. At first I thought it was the dublab stream on the blitz, but it sounds odd in any application or with any file type. So I shall be submitting my laptop to my own place of employment
tomorrow later for a replacement sound card, methinks. <edit>Or not. The problem has ceased…</edit>
I think I shall spend Saturday night (my only non-statically allocated time this weekend) blogging, reading blogs/sites, and writing e-mails to make up for my lack of real human contact and updates since last Sunday. This week was long and unfun. This weekend shall be longer and more unfun. The nice thing about winter, however, is that I’m just bummed enough to be able to work efficiently (read: I don’t crave social interaction), but I’m not so whacked out that I can’t work for extended amounts of time with extraordinary focus and I can avoid thinking it’s the end of the world that I need to put in a few long hours.
Okay, so it’s a lot of long hours, I am wearing down, and I’ll be happier when Alicia Keys’ “Harlem’s Nocturne” resumes playing at its beautifully racy pace, but as long as I’m capable of keeping my own counsel (read: not crying on anyone’s shoulder), it’s all gravy.
Now if I can do better than “passable” in class and at work for the next five weeks, I’ll be set…
elections nominations are next week. Yay.
