  * question:  QV:  2008 TGl, or 2009 TGq (meaning J, J really need copies)
    2008 has the long tail, which is unlikely ever to be repeated, but rougher
    	 and Jordan and Joyce were there, and not Naomi.  
    2009 is more polished than 2008; has me and Callie alternating verses
    -> 2009/02/01-Conflikt - Callie on bass flute.  Absolutely clean.
       there's a version of Landscapes, too, but Cosonance is better
  * burned (25 so far), ripped, submitted to freedb.
    the first 3 have the TGq version of QV, so ought to be redone.
    It takes about 2:30 each to burn, and a little less to print.
    Think I'll stop at 25 for now.

Monday was a holiday, which I mostly spent puttering (interrupted at noon for a dentist appointment) while Colleen went to Britex (her favorite fabric store in SF) with Liz.

I spent the afternoon and evening designing a label for the Valentine's Day CD (which of course is over a week late now), and running off 25 of the total run of 50. Before you ask, no, it's not for sale. There will be a few copies in Interfilk auctions, though, starting with Consonance.

It takes about two and a half minutes to burn a CD, and a little less than that to print it. So throughput is somewhere on the order of 20/hour, taking advantage of pipelining but allowing for the inevitable lapses of attention.

An interesting bit of self-observation Monday evening: most people found Damn You Auto Correct! - 15 Most Popular Autocorrects From January 2011 to be rolling-on-the-ground funny. I found it mildly amusing, but not enough so to chuckle at. Is that because it involved people making embarrassing mistakes? Likely.

A 3-mile walk on Tuesday, and I seem to remember one on Monday but don't seem to have noted it.

A huge collection of links, including dish towel diaries: Recipes for gluten-free baking and cooking courtesy of roaringmouse. And [ profile] vixyish points out that this is the year of the White Rabbit. Let's hope for wonders!
