It Feels Great to Check Things Off of The List

I had a list of things I’d like to get from before I moved to San Francisco (2002), I just found the 3″x5″ card, and here’s what was on it…

1. Technics 1200’s and mixer amp and speakers (found the speakers on the street, amp was gift, and I bought a Numark tt1650)
2. Midi Controller / synth (Oxygen2 controller)
3. Midi interface / sound card (imic works great)
4. Ink Jet Printer capable of large paper (Tektronix can print 11×17 wax prints)
5. Max Ram 3x512mb (1.25gb ram in desktop)
6. Titanium apple computer 677 mhz 40gbhd (12″ Aluminum  Powerbook May 2004)
7. Subaru WRX or 2.5 RS coupe (Zipcar member since 2004)
8. Snowboard (got snowskate in 2003)
9. Digital Camera (Rebel XT Summer 2006)
10. Action Sampler + panoramic camera (gift from Fiid and Susan 2005)

I have succeeded in every one of these categories except I have no need for a car anymore because of my bike and car sharing…
