Reading and recording at 11PM

I'm recording some audio in the background, using our Mac and a Sony hand-held cassette recorder. I did a fake interview (funny to us in the Ozarks) and did some serious speaking about my grandmother. I'm about to lose her and it hurts already.

That forces me to confront a topic I'm not sure how to deal with: edit the recordings and post, post with no edits, don't post.

Express yourself in comments. If you want to hear the funny one, let me know…

Pre-trip notes

Pre-trip notes

I'm writing this from the waiting room of Mitchum Tire here in
Springfield, waiting for a tire to get fixed. I've been doing a lot of
pre-trip prep work: finding a house-sitter, cleaning the house and car,
writing a packing checklist and more. I noticed that I haven't done one
fundamental thing–make a BloggerCon checklist. Let's take a moment and
write one now.

–Write interview questions.

–Install aggregator software for Andrew's Day 2 session
–Send email to family and friends about the trip, asking them to follow
–Verify my Radio install one more time and then *don't touch it*.

With the list written online, expect it to be edited as I go. Later,
I'll add stuff for the car, compatible iTrip stations, music take take
on the iPod (who thought 10GB would not be enough?) and food to take for
snaks along the way.

Called my insurance agent and got roadside assistance for the car. $5.00 every six months is *cheap*.
