Oh I see. lol Well you know, it's probably just because I think everything is about me. Anyway, it should be even if it isn't!

I have short-timers syndrome. I have a week and a half left and my motivation level went from 5 to -3 (on a scale of ten.)

And I STILL have to do all these happy dappy events and will have no time to get caught up even if I tried. Story of my time here; I'm so glad I'm moving on.

Tonight is what I consider my swan song: I emcee the scholarship banquet and praise all the donors and recipients, and introduce speakers etc. I won't have to do anything like that ever again, in all probability. I'm good at it, I hate doing it.

I have a headache and a muscle spasm in my shoulder.

Can I get a rub?

Sigh...

Job change blues I guess.

Not irritating, per-say...but...I ended up getting sick last night...dizzy, fever, felt sick to my stomache...bad enough that I left work after only an hour being there (ugh!) I came home and slept until about 9:30...at which point my dad had me take nyquil so I could get less restless sleep. It worked out ok, but unfortunatley I can still feel the nyquil buzzing through my system...and I haven't stopped shaking yet...so I've got to decide whether or not I can drive to class. grr.

Mildly irritating me today is: computer speakers.

I bought some on Thursday.
The shop clerk picked up a box off the wrong pile - I wanted the sub-woofer + five woofer/tweeter set - he gave me sub-woofer + two speaker set.

Today I went back and changed them over, paid a few dollars extra. All good.

I got home and read the instructions. Despite the clerk's assurances that it would "plug straight in" to my computer, there is a catch. My machine has a two channel sound card. I can connect the system, but the back two speakers (for surround sound) will not function at all. No sound.

Turns out that first set I had would have been more suitable.

I am considering whether to go back to the store again and change them back. I don't think so - I'll just leave the other two in the cupboard and maybe someday I will upgrade to a better computer which will be able to use all the speakers.

Any suggestions from all the techie types here?

Update:

The speakers have one subwoofer and two woofer/tweeter units operational. Music library accessible.

The cable for the TV tuner card for the computer does not fit in the TV socket on the wall. The TV is not operational.

The Audio input for the speakers does not fit in my phone (i.e. FM radio, music player). The radio is not operational.

The mobile internet has some connectivity, but is sometimes really slow (especially for the cellar ) Audio streaming over the net is successful. Video streaming has variable success.

Why is it that so many things don't plug into other things. C'mon, planet Earth, what is it with you monkeylings? Get it together.

are you sure? My mom used the "plug in the socket" metaphor when I got The Talk.

Pretty sure some people are doing the whole "plug-and-play" thing right now.

Unfortunately, not me.

-snorts- Me either, Cloud. As for "mildly" irritating today... apparently my mother lacks the brain-mouth filter thing and has been giving the future ex husband ALL the information I've been giving her (in confidence, I thought) about me and the baby and the job that I got in Hawaii. DAMMIT! >.<
