I dropped my Handspring Visor while walking around, and the LCD screen cracked. Everything else seems to be intact though. So much for having all my journal entries... I don't have them anymore. I'll have to get them when I get ahold of another Visor. I'm glad I have the MemoryAccess backup module.
So let's see, what do I remember. Beth and Andrea cut my hair. They both have never cut hair before. Turned out pretty good, considering that.
Oh yes! Zeta instruments had a demo! I got to play a Strados Modern violin! It was so cool, it had MIDI and all that! It was solid body, and heavy. Very heavy. My neck felt weird for a while afterwards. But that thing, with an effects box, is sooo tight!

Ok, I forgot what happened today, but since Andrea kept such nice notes, she jogged my memory:
We went to the Science Center, and I was pretty unimpressed. It's very dumbed down, like all science centres are these days. Owell, we quickly scooted out of that place. We had dinner at Fitz's today, and we got a really cool waiter. He gave us all free drinks, it was great.

I went to Target right before the trip to pick up some batteries. I ended up spending like $80, cause I realized I needed a razor (I left mine at home), and then I saw TDK CD-R for really cheap. Then I stopped to see if they restocked on my CD cube organizer, and they had. So that was cool. Bought myself new toys for when I get back.

It's the first day classes start up again, but also the day I prepare to leave town. I'm leaving tomorrow for Kansas City with the Ladue Strolling Strings to the regional conference there at the Crown Convention centre. I'm taking the digital camera, so I went to Best Buy to get a case for it and all that. I'll also keep my usual journal on my Handspring, so you'll be all up to date when I get back on Sunday.

Well, I spent my last day of winter break at Strolling Strings rehearsal and a violin lesson, and then I designed myself a business card. It's a pretty high priority item on my To-Do list, so many people have been asking me for one lately.

So it's the new year, and what did I decide to do? I finished my website! I should have made that a New Year's Resolution or something. I wrote some stuff in my Cars page! And I made sure my dream car list was updated with the new models of the new year too. It's a shame, they canceled my old dream car, the Volvo V70 R Wagon AWD, but I let go of that really quickly. The Audi allroad Quattro is so awesome! I won't bore you with it here, read it on my cars page.
Wow! So it's all finished. Now I just need to update some stuff...
The TI Microlaser started acting up today. It started griding gears. Turns out, the new drum that I just got is the problem. It seems stuck. Argh. I'll have to gripe about it to them and have them send me a replacement.
