Busy day


I'll finish going through the first draft of Waking up Jack Thunder today.  I know you're supposed to just read it like a regular novel (making one word notes in the margins where necessary), but by the time I got to page ten, I was crossing things out, rewording dialogue, crossing more things out, circling paragraphs that needed moving etc. 

I have a couple of things to sort out for the multi-author signing I've arranged at Monmouth County Library for March 14th, and I need to update the website www.njauthorsnetwork.com (and my personal one too for that matter).

On a personal note, I need to take Senior Management's i-pod in for repair, which probably means they'll replace it.  This sounds good, but she got some music put on there when she last went back to England, and since you can't transfer music from i-pod to pc, she'll lose those albums.  I offered to record karaoke versions for her, but she didn't seem keen (can't say I blame her). 

Psych's on tonight (USA,10/9C).  Last week's episode was good, but not great.  On dvd, we've been watching 3rd Rock  From The Sun (mostly hilarious), Burn Notice (an entertaining blend of Magyver and The A-team), and for about the twentieth time Joss Whedon's Firefly  
                                                                                                                  
 (because it's the best show ever made in the history of television, ever, ever, ever).

Actually, you can transfer music from iPod to PC, but it's a messy process. What you do is ask your system to read the iPod as if it were a pen drive. Once that's done, the music folders will appear as regular files. Sadly, the song names won't be visible, but you can then transfer the whole mess to iTunes which can read the file names...

Interesting. I'll have to give that a try, thanks. For the moment, BestBuy took it in (they send it off to Apple for repair), I should get it back 'good as new' in a few weeks.

Hi Jon
Good luck with your written works and thanks for stopping by my LJ as well.

If your remotely curious, I watch Psych once in awhile but thats because it follows Monk which I follow alot.

The few times I HAVE followed Psych it was pretty well written. I do like the flashback scenes between him and his dad. I see it's in it's third (?) season already so their doing well- that first season is a cruncher to get through these days.
Someday I plan to sit down and catch some of Firefly to see what all the fuss is about. But not yet. I'll save that for a really rainy day and savor it.

I know you like well-written characters, so I guarantee you'll love Firefly. I used to watch Monk a lot, I think Tony Shaloub does a fantastic job. My favorite episode is the one with his brother, Ambrose.
