After my workout Tuesday afternoon, I went home to shower, and decided that I desired to have music in the bathroom during said shower. Hooking my iPod up to headphones and cranking the volume to the max sufficed, but I knew that I'd need to seek a better solution. An hour later and eighty dollars lighter in the bank account, I walked out of Best Buy with an Altec Lansing iPod dock. Not only will it satisfy my craving for in-shower music, it also functions well in the kitchen, and in the office (the small size makes it easily portable).
Up in my office, we've been having a lot of fun with VGMusic, a site that has MIDI arrangements of music and sound effects from a myriad of games. That's all well and good, but sometimes you absolutely need the real thing. Fortunately for me, producing said real thing is quite easy for me. I joined the forces of sound recording program Total Recorder with those of NES emulator FCE Ultra, and the result was a real, authentic MP3 of the overworld theme from The Legend of Zelda. Yeah, it might be cheesy and dorky, but I think it's cool, and so does most of my division.
My friend Dave has departed the Submersible Death Trap; he's leaving the Seagoing Military Force, moving on to bigger and better things. He gave his parting shot in classic style last night, walking into my apartment - through the back door - and totally surprising my roommate. Serving with Dave was great. Just great...FOR US TO POOP ON!!
Currently I'm reading How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie; it's an interesting read so far. For reasons unknown to me, Josh laughed hysterically when he saw the book yesterday. I guess maybe winning ten grand in the lottery puts you above the need for such information - you can simply buy friends, vice winning them.
Tonight might see some Durham ops; it will definitely see some stationary bike ops. Whatever happens, I'm confident that everything will work out in the end regarding my leave...
