My Sansa is getting a workout. As I’m typing I’m downloading HP and the Half Blood Prince onto it. After it’s done I’ll open up Rhapsody and plunk down some music tracks. Despite the fact that I’m not supposed to be able to use this particular Sansa with Rhapsody, I’ve had no problems listening to the music I’ve put on it. The only trouble I’ve had is when I try to delete the music to put more on. For some reason WMP still reads the files even though they aren’t there, and I end up having to reformat the drive. Not a biggie, since I love to completely replace my playlist eqch week. Plus the regular formatting may have something to do with the absense of licensing problems Ben and Jarret have had with their’s. :)

In other news, I’m having fun on pointing out that Wicca requires the “worship” of BOTH a God AND a Goddess. Two of the ecclectics are calling me on this. One I haven’t bothered responding to as I’ve been confronted by her before and discovered she hasn’t a clue. The other is providing proof of why she’s right and I’m wrong in the form of “experience” and name dropping. She’s even gone as far as to say you don’t need Deity at all to be Wiccan. *rolls eyes*

Of course, if there are any on my flist who are truly experienced and feel I need a clue by four upside the head, I’d graciously accept it. While I hate being wrong, I hate being wrong and looking like an ass even more. :)

Randomness
Aug 22nd, 2007 by Babs

I’m writing this while waiting for my Sansa to finish charging. I’m almost halfway through the Harry Potter CDs. Hopefully this charge will be enough to get through the second half. :)

The boys are currently in my room. Jarret is deliberately sneezing (raspberries included) all over his brother, and jumping on my bed. Ribbon is looking for a place to hide. Alas Amber already has the primo spot.

I finished moving my writing journal to Blogger, not that there was much to move. I did have to spend time working with the format, however. My LJ posts didn’t automaticaly format to Blogger’s settings, so I had to remove all formatting and manually go in and add the italics and bold. I created links to to both it and my cookbook, on IJ. While doing so I discovered IJ has given me more link slots to work with. Had I had them when I first started moving they would’ve been great, but now that the blogs that would’ve used them are already at home on Blogger, I don’t really need them. Later, I might update my links on LJ, as well as on GJ.

While working on the formatting various members of the Harem were whispering suggestions for stories. James wants me to continue “Indigo”, probably because it’s the one and only story where he doesn’t appear as a doofus. The G-Boys want me to get on the ball and work on the rewrite for “Links”. None of them care about my super hero story.

*sniffs* Ah, the smell of whole wheat bread baking. Yum! Jarret is already boycotting this loaf. He hates whole wheat! He’s going to be in for a shock when school starts back up. *evil grin*

Well, the Sansa is charged. Back to Harry and Co.

Harry Potter and the Cookbook
Aug 18th, 2007 by Babs

I’m busy ripping Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix so that I can listen to it on my Sansa.Yeah, I’m still going to “read” it even though the end was ruined for me.

While I’m ripping, I’m adding more recipes to my recipe blog. It’s still available for viewing by invitation. Though now that it’s on Blogger, I need email addresses to approve folks for viewage. I still have to move the recipes I had on Crunchy Granola ove, but I’ve got 11 newish recipes in the cookbook thus far.

In other news, GJ members are having a cow because they have to cut back on their icons in order to accomodate the influx of new members. Sheesh! I’ve been here for almost three years and it’s been rather dead. It takes the axing of icons for everyone to come out of the woodwork? *rolls eyes*

I nearly had a heart attack when IJ was turning up “502” errors. I wasn’t quite sure if it was down due to the continued addition of members or if something worse happened. Turns out it was because of the former. “Squeaky” was upgrading the site for improved performance. Wow! When was the last time LJ did that?

I’ve been friended on LJ by a Jesus Freak. *waves* We’ll see how that goes. Considering we’re all a bunch of frickin’ paedophiles… *snuggles up to Quatre*
