They got me!


Pink Donut, originally uploaded by snidegrrl.

Clearly, this was the highlight of my weekend!

Although I had just designated this weekend as a time to get my whole life together. I did not succeed but I did build up some momentum.

Things I did manage:
- More Grey's Anatomy. I'm sad people universally say this show got worse, because it was damn good. Once again I am left begging for more.
- Filed a bunch of shit, making the office more approachable.
- Made level 61 with Pippye.
- Had a really fun, loose band practice. Mention was made of doing a tiny bar tour of North Carolina sometime.
- Posted a whatsinmybag to flickr. Ended up contributing to a bunch of kitty cat photo pools while I was at it.
- Made great strides in my project of adding all the album art to iTunes. A good 40% of my songs don't even have albums so that will be a whole new level for the project when I get to that. I am a lot like my dad, just not about stamps!
- Ordered some 8ml atomizers and perfumer's alcohol to turn some of my BPAL oils into sprays. I can't wait!

Where did you order from? Perhaps we can work on our projects together :)

The one thing I couldn't get on the site I ordered from were those little plastic pipette things for transferring oils. Did you get some of those? I wonder if there's somewhere I can just buy them.

Oooh! I did not get little pippettes but I ordered funnels. They didn't have them at the Sunburst website.
Someone selling them through an ebay store.

Let me know when you get your supplies! I just got some of those pipettes too while I was at it.

Oh and what were you planning to use for the alcohol? Everclear? That's my backup plan if I don't like the stuff I got from snowdrift farms.

How much did you pay for shipping?

It was 6 or 9 bucks, I can't remember. I ordered from Snowdrift Farm, but only because they had the perfumer's alcohol. There were cheaper atomizer bottles out there. I got the first ones on this page. All the shops links I gleaned from the BPAL forums are here.

Tiny modifies both bar & tour. Hah!

I have been enjoying this season of GA just as much as the others. I think people just like to find fault.

I for one am thrilled to hear a dissenting opinion!

srsly.
i LOVE that picture. SO MUCH. i think it should be in a museum somewhere, or at least in harpers magazine. get that one blown up and put it on your wall.

also, thanks for voting in the shoe poll! i myself have red chacos. they are the best shoes ever.

Re: srsly.
I have blue chacos, and I think I got them too small. If I walk around in them all day, my feet HURT!! Also the little crosshatchy things build up food sludge and I cannot get them clean to save my life! This is why I recommended another brand. I love polls! And thanks about the pic! It looks like I was just walking by eating a donut, but really, it was staged.

Re: srsly.
that's funny, because generally they run small, so if you got your regular size, they should have been too big. i have size 7 chacos, and i usually wear 8's. and i just throw them in the wash, which seems to work. that being said, the keens look pretty nifty.

Was this the Maryland Kwik-e-mart?
Monster Man has visited 3 times (twice with me in tow). We're going back in two days to try to catch the Radio Active Man comics that they had to re-order.

Made great strides in my project of adding all the album art to iTunes.

I'm not sure if this will be good or bad news.. but there's an option under 'Advanced' (I think) with iTunes that's "Get Album Artwork" or maybe download.. Anyway, it'll connect to the iTunes music store and get all the missing artwork it can match, even for tracks you didn't buy through the store.

I guess it's kind of bad news? The only thing is that I noticed it had automatically found art for some things I ripped and it found the wrong art, so I guess I don't trust it. I finished adding art for known album titles last night, and now I start trying to figure out unknown albums and adding art for those... phew.

I know your pain.. Before there was an option to automatically get album art, I spent way, way too many hours standardizing ID3 tags and getting album art from amazon.com.. I mean, literally whole weekends were taken up by it.

I believe it. And get a sick satisfaction out of spending time on it, so that's fine.

I was just investigating my options last night. I think I'll try the iTunes method to see how well it works for artwork. I have other Mac projects that are in line before album artwork collection, though I really really want to do that. =)

LOVE the photo. My LJ and/or internetz have been wonky for days so I kept getting just as far as SEEING the photo but could not comment. But it made me smile every time!
