Thursday Ten, Waiting for the Never-ending Download (Insert Expletive Here)

1. I am currently trying to download an FTP file to see whether or not the XML file that was supposed to be included with the download was or was not included. My laptop has been chugging away for about 15 minutes downloading this (I realize now that I should have run a test with only one asset versus twenty, but I’m an idiot, and making things complicated is the way I roll). If the XML file was NOT included, I’m gonna have to kind of recreate a file. I’m not happy about that. That option takes a long time.

2. My other work project that would not die is now 2/3 dead. Yay.

3. I learned three new chords at my guitar lesson today. I bombed “Twinkle Twinkle” but easily played the two chords I learned last week, so I basically cancelled my efforts out. I love that I’m learning stuff and it’s getting easier to wrap my head around it (and my fingers – holy crap do you really need to be able to stretch your fingers playing guitar. I had NO idea).

4. You can check my very longwinded Project Runway recap (if you are so inclined) here. If you don’t follow the show, you may be disgusted (as one of my friends has told me) that I can pay such close attention to a television show – a reality show, no less – and then write about it… But, hey, I love me some PR. And as much as I want to feel sad about our Michigander gettin’ auf’d, well… His garment was some serious ugly and it made his client’s boobs look really funny. Buh-bye.

5. Had to go to Back to School night at The Princess’s school the other night. That coulda been awkward – but nope… No ex-boyfriends in attendance. Whooo!

6. My only download this week was an “oldie” (like a couple years old): Kevin Lyttle’s “Turn Me On”. I love that song.

7. Facebook people – do you love or hate the new layout? I don’t mind it – but I’ve gotten a few messages from friends asking if I can tell them how to switch back to the old (save your breath, I have no freakin’ clue).

8. That file is STILL chugging away. (UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH).

9. Do you know how hard it is somedays to find something to take a picture of that is representative of my day? I’m still loving the 365 Project (I’m Sarah Two), but some days I think of how low key of a day I’ve had. Does anyone really want to see a picture of the laundry I’ve been folding or my vacuum cleaner? I have a feeling at some point there will be a picture of my vacuum. I really do love that thing (A Dyson, in case you were curious – totally worth it). Today’s picture was of the sky – at nearly 9 a.m. the moon was still visible high in the sky and Pumpkin was so excited that she pointed it out to me three times. I love a child’s wonder.

10. I won movie passes from a local paper this week (Twitter, gotta love it!). Not sure what I’m gonna go see, or when… but it will be free.

P.S. This file still isn’t done yet. This is not looking good.

    3. Great news on the guitar! You are inspiring me to take up an instrument!

    4. If you like it, it’s all good, I’ve never watched…

    5. Glad he wasn’t there, I was wondering if you would run into him often!

    6. LOVE THAT SONG! OMG I love all of that kind of music!

    7. I joined after the layout was implemented, so no thoughts

    8. HAHA!

    9. Might as well make a huge laundry stack and take a pic!

    10. Congrats!!! I haven’t been to the movies in over a year!

  2. Hey, thanks for stopping by! I was really nervous about being able to pick up an instrument and learn it, seeing as how I’m not a kid anymore… but it’s not as scary as I thought! You should give it a try!!
