More organization. After careful study and consideration, it has come to my attention that I need an iPod or other MP3 player. This announcement brought to you by a dining room table covered in cassette tapes and CDs. Gareth has most, if not all, of the music on these objects in digital form. I am the only one in the house who has no way to play digital tunes. This needs to change. The only problem is that I really don't want to ditch some of my taped stuff. Thankfully, yet again, Think Geek has got my back: USB tape player converts cassettes to MP3s

Also spent time with friends. Hooray for hanging out with friends! Had a lovely time with [livejournal.com profile] berkie, [livejournal.com profile] cartoon_goblin, [livejournal.com profile] matt_the_brit, [livejournal.com profile] sherwood21 and the LJ-less Kemme clan over the weekend. The only downside was trying to attend the "Taste of Lawrence" festival before fireworks on the actual 4th. The food was good, the company was great, the temperature was decent, but the humidity was devastating. Ended the evening with a few drinks and returning home to collapse from heat.

I did discover that the new digs are close enough to our downtown area that I can watch the city fireworks from home, so that was nice. If we're in town for it next year, I may suggest an evening cook out and viewing from our roof.

An old acquaintance passed away unexpectedly last week. I had the pleasure of working with Joyce Steiner for only a couple of years in the '90s. She was an awesome lady, and I'll miss checking in with her on my visits to the public library.

[livejournal.com profile] gmskarka and I had a lovely dinner with my LJ-less friend Ruth and her Aussie husband (whose name I can't remember how to spell) at Wheat State Pizza last night. They do some really awesome pizza there, even if it does remind me more of focaccia. Try it if you get a chance. I mean, pizza with portobello mushrooms and pesto sauce on a whole wheat crust? Yum!!!

And it was great to catch up with Ruth after about five years of not getting to hang out together. Now I'm really looking forward to visiting her at the Arizona Ren Fest. Yay for reconnecting with old friends!
