Was great to be at the office again...

Thing was I had a meeting with my team manager and I hadn't brought my laptop, and I had forgotten my phone.
Another team manager sat right across me and she allowed me to use her work phone...
until at 14:00, that team manager packed her stuff and went. Our manager had made a surprise visit to the office and there is a maximum number of people allowed, so somebody had to leave and she chose to go.
So I ended up borrowing a third team manager's laptop. Office adventures...

Two days off in which I did precious little due to weather conditions. It was supposed to rain here yesterday and there has been real bad rain in my province but unfortunately none out here. Am trying to cool the house, it's still suffocatingly hot.

It's rained a lot lately and the temperature has decreased a good amount, but I hope it's gonna get sunny again for my last week of vacation. I'm gonna stay a few days at my ex's appartment in Le Touquet, so it would be cool to be able to go to the beach, have long walks, etc, etc.

Well, my home cinema system seems to be fried. Actually, it's only the wireless system that seems to have broken down. I'll try to get it repaired when I come back from vacation. Since it's my main way of listening to music in my flat, I really hope it can get fixed, I don't want 1to have to buy a whole new system when only a part of it doesn't work. It sucks.:(

Decided to move outside with a laptop. Within five minutes a harvestman dropped down - into my hair. Eek.

When you say wireless, what exactly do you mean? We previously had a Sony TV that had all the connectivity in a separate box, which then communicated with the TV via wireless. This meant you could have the box inside the display unit and bring all the cables in through the back. After about ten years, the wireless started intermittently dropping out and eventually got so bad, we ended up having to get a new TV. That extra tidiness factor, probably wasn't worth the extra cost, so this time we didn't get a wireless one.

Today I got to finish feeling really good about myself - we're, for the first time in months, not behind on or proofs of payment! :D

well, it's this system here:
https://www.sony.co.th/en/electronics/all-in-one-home-cinema-systems...

The wireless part concerns the satellite speakers, there's a little box that serves as a receiver for the signal emitted by the dvd player, the satellite speakers are connected to this box so that you have no wires running through the room. I opened that box and cleaned it up before going on holiday, perhaps that's the reason why it started working again.

Glad to hear your audio system is still working!

I'm starting to work out again - Corona got me hard. :(

Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback.

I find it interesting that I do get positive feedback and have never had a negative comment except from Cleon at zappa.com who said that my guitar in my Zoot Allures cover sounded like shit. I'm aware that it's just a practice amp recorded through a single microphone and far from a professional production, but that wasn't the point, I just had the camera going while I was practising. My recent Echidna's Arf and Uncle Meat videos are examples of when I put a bit more effort into the production.

So, Cleon aside, if there are people out there who think my music is okay, my problem is how to get more people to listen to it. I haven't put a lot of effort into that so far, because I wasn't particularly bothered, but now I'm doing this full time and I'm working towards my first fully produced album, I'm starting to give it some thought.

So thanks again to you, and Bonny, for her positive feedback so far, you've helped inspire me to take it further. Watch out when the world is looking for someone to blame later on.

Very nice, great to hear about your album! Hope it works out!

Been doing too much talking today. I wish governments wouldn't decide on Friday evening to appoint new orange zones so that we're stuck doing customer service on Saturday while we'll have to wait until Monday for the corporate decision.
