2. christmas party for work is a week from today. we drew names on saturday and lucky me got the boss's name. i work at a small music store, everybody participates in a drunken jam session at parties. (they're really not all that fun, but this one guy and i are going to try to put a couple songs together to sound decent.) ANYWAY. what the hell do i get my boss for christmas? $10-15 and 'anything goes.'
3. i have to back up my external hard drive onto dvd because my mac died and now i can't get to my files. i'm going to take my hard drive to the mac lab at school and transfer everything to dvd. i bought a spindle of blank dvd-r's (not +r or -rw or +rw or whatever else is out there). i read somewhere online there's a dvd format war of sorts going on, so will my shiny new dell laptop be able to read the dvd-r's i burn on an imac?
