Kyle and I exchanged prezzies last night and he did manage to moderately surprise me with one gift (go Kyle!).
First of all, he finished transferring two vinyl records onto cd for me. This is probably the gift I’m most appreciative of, because there is so much time and effort involved.
He has a turntable that USB plugs into a computer, and software that can rip the album. However you have to do each track individually. And the software kept fucking up which necessitated rebooting like every track. Uggh!!
But now I finally have all of Emerson’s Piano Concerto #1 (Emerson lake and palmer– yet oddly legit and not prog rock). And I have this 1950’s Fred Waring Xmas album!
The Xmas album was my grandmothers and is currently my moms and we listen to it EVERY Christmas day. And now she’ll have it on cd. Thanks Kyle!
Other stuff I got included a very expensive skin care regime that I was too proud to purchase myself and too vain not to use every day now! It even included an anal bleaching kit!! I sweat, you take ONE bad Kooning picture…
I also received the DVD of “Dr. Horribles sing along blog”! This was the surprise gift and I totally love it! I am also in love with NPH (call me!). Kyle and I watched it last night. I sang along.
Last but definitely not least, I got the coffee table book “Testosterone”! Damn damn DAMN!! Totally motherfucking hot!!!
I’m including pics of me at the end here– me with freshly toned skin holding Dr. Horrible DVD. And a few choice images from testosterone.
Xmas is off to a good start. It can only go down hill from here.
