My darling Joy, I can't express how much I love her, already. Haven't even had her for twelve months, yet we couldn't be bonded more; I mean, i suppose it will get stronger, and that already amazes me, as we're well on the way already.
She does have an ear infection though so is on ear drops. For the first few days, the vet nurses offered to help me put it in, so until I am confident with doing it myself, I will gladly and gratefully take them up on it.
This afo, I plan to walk down to Gormae Girl and have an early dinner of spinich and Recotta triangles to keep up my vegetarian diet. Speaking of which, here's an Audio post I recorded for twitterland explaining how my diet is going. :)
I updated to Qwitter 4.5 and they have an audio feature where one can record and listen to audio files on a server which is specifically there for the purpose, so that's a lot of fun and where the above "fake phone post" is located.
There were a few things I'd thought of that I should have mentioned in last nights entry, but they've slipped my mind, so will have to be written later.

This is now being directly recorded via line-in. Stupid me hadn't actually selected it in volume control; go me!
This is with about fifteen layers.
I'm just getting the hang of how this looping works, and then I can actually be more creative, though it is somewhat limitting with only a touch pad.

Produced this on my second attempt on my Korg Kaossilator.
Unfortunately, I had to record this on to my puter using headphones and microphone as I couldn't get it to work when I plugged a line-in cable into the unit; not sure if I need a different one or not, thus, unfortunately, it's just monno.
But there's about eight layers. :)

I reflect on the following track of late. I've heard Nicky Webbster a few times recently. -- "Ready Steady Cook" last year and on the "7 PM project" last week; Boy she sounds very mature now; I guess people can change a lot in ten years. I never did end up hearing her sing at the Sydney 2000 Olympics ten years ago but at the time, it seemed like it was a pretty big thing for her.
"Strawberry Kisses" was when I was first introduced to her and a lot of ppl use to think it was quite daggy, well that's how it seemed at the time. I still like it; think she did a great job.

My old favourites are back; what I thought I invented back in approx 87 now bigger and better. Tape recorders are replaced with soundforge and winamp.

It's really weird for me to post this now considering it's not christmas, but I just found it on YouTube. I looooved this last year when i heard it on the repeat of Carrols By Candle-light on christmas day while with the family; it made me smile. :)

So yesterday was totally awesome right up until last night where i got frustrated with not being able to find barcodes on a few products.
Yesterday's woodwork class was the best yet; I felt so confident and at ease with all the equipment I was using. -- Dad had asked me a few weeks ago if I had told them it must be in the gene-pool since he'd built our house and will fix anything else that needs fixing etc. I'd laughed at him, but there may be an ounce of truth to it. -- Anyway, I'm so impressed that I'm going to bring him into have a look at the setup of the workshop; I think he'll be very impressed, and maybe even, God forbid, set up something like it in his own workshop so i can like help him sometimes. I didn't think I'd be so serious about that, but I am; I'm loving it! :)
First up, we had a review of the thicknesser; I had no trouble remembering how it all worked though. -- Then Brett cut up all our timber for the chopping board at different thicknesses and lengths. We then had to measure the thinnest bit of wood from our pile and put all of them through the thicknesser both sides to dress it. -- It takes a good while to do both sides of each bit of timber. I was lucky as Richard (another class mate) got all mine from the back and handed them back to me, so it saved a bit of time.
Then, I used the drop-saw to cut the wood at all the same lengths. after remeasuring to make sure I'd set it up correctly for my particular cuts, Brett made sure I had good control of the saw and was perfectly safe using it, then he went to help others while I cut the rest on my own. -- i never thought I'd be into this!
As Richard can only use one arm due to recent surgery, he had to use a hand-saw and as I hadn't seen one before, I had a go chopping one of his bits of wood; It was awesome, but very slow; I'd rather the "big scarey drop-saw" thanks. :)
After that, brett showed us how to use the wide Belt Sander as next week, we'll be putting our wood through that, gluing them together and being introduced to a few more machines to finish it all off - so looking forward to that.
After this, I hit record on my Olympus DS30 and it recorded my walking back to reception, Jim coming and giving me my item, a bit in the cab, (the weather was severe yesterday and i feared Blackburn station would be flooded as usual on these days, so I shared a cab home with Ed. -- Then I started a new recording where i opened the boxes and gave my first impressions.
I did have trouble later on though; couldn't find the barcodes on certain items, but Jim offered to help me figure it out more when I take some items in Tuesday as well as good old [livejournal.com profile] khoath.

There's some crackling on this file which is the microphone; i don't edit these things. (goes for about 30 to 40 minutes)

This was recorded on khoath's olympus on the evening of Tuesday the 6th of April. We were being incredibly silly!

My learning how to set the roll up, and my first attempt at the pianola on the Friday night.
(unfortunately I haven't got much of the rest of the trip as this is Nicki's recording for her American sweetie, and I sadly didn't bring my olympus).
