Happy birthday to me!

Today is my birthday! It was a great day. I woke up early and set up my new recording equipment. Slid the USB audio interface under my iMac, and set up the mic-stand on the left side of my desk at about mouth level. Tried another sample recording and I think I’ll be getting good results one I figure out what eq settings to use. I think I’m nearly there, actually.

Henry came home around lunchtime and gave me presents, too — a handmade little medallion/bookmark and Super Princess Peach for the DS! I’ve been wishing for that game because reviews were good and it looked not too difficult. I get frustrated with impossibly hard games. One very nice thing is that it saves after you complete each short level. I get stuck in New Super Mario Bros. because you can’t save very often, and I don’t always have the time or energy to make it through a tower or castle, or save up enough coins. Anyway, I love Princess Peach so far.

The guys went out and brought pizza home for lunch, and we watched a couple of Star Trek episodes (Devil in the Dark and I, Mudd). Henry invited me to a game of scrabble, and after that we watched Austin Powers — Henry hadn’t see it before and he laughed and laughed, heheh.

Also I tinkered with my blog a lot. I didn’t want a huge string of archive links in the sidebar, so I set up a special archive index, as you can see. And Kri pointed me to a useful plugin that lets me show only blog posts on the front page, so I won’t clutter up the blog with audiobook episodes and knitting and whatnot.

    Looks great so far to me :) You know I get frustrated with hard games too. I find myself really enjoying simple RPGs, as I’m not too fond of strategy or things that take too long. Too little patience!

    Again, Happy birthday!
