Been napping for about an hour... just couldn't stay awake any longer after being awake since 8am anymore. Now I'm up and noticing that I've been a *lot* more bitter tonight talking to people or replying to posts on mailing lists.
New realization, "Wow, when I'm tired, I'm grumpy!"
Since I'm sure I'm still lingeringly sick, I decided to spend today more or less resting. So I got myself to the bank to deposit my paycheck, then brought the new speakers up from the car when I returned.
You see, I have had these old speakers my mom gave me which are actually pretty good for mid to high range frequencies, but not very good for low on the entertainment system. Which is good, since it seems all modern inexpensive speakers think you want BOOM BOOM BOOM all the time, so are GREAT for low range, good for mid range, and awful for high range. While at Best Buy the other day, I listened to a few of these systems, and found the ones that seemed to be the most robust (KLH); fortunately, they even had a sale on center/2 back speakers for $100.
I plugged them in with whatever speaker wire I had on hand, which meant that the back speakers aren't actually in the back of the room just yet, they're sitting atop the old speakers... but after I got that running, I sat down and enjoyed the Oingo Boingo Farewell concert DVD mari's lending me. Oh. My. Gawd. It's a fabulous wall of sound.
And Oingo Boingo just rocks. Danny Elfman's clearly insanely brilliant too. I need to get a copy of this DVD for myself now. Wow.
Ok, that's pretty much the sum total of my day. Now werky.
