And then I go waste a morning droning on about nothing to the ceiling. I didn't even videotape myself. Gah!
Reason #2 for tech panic -- the place I applied for a job to is following up my references before interview (I didn't even think I'd been shortlisted) and I feel panicked because though I desperately want to leave my job I don't want to leave the 21" monitor, the Digital Video camera, the Mavica, the i-book, the graphics tablet and all the other unnecessary but lovely toys I haven't actually had time to play with yet because I've been too busy trying to do my job (or bitching about my office mate) ... yeah, I know. Sucks to be me, right?
So I spent half today making flash movies, half working through all the different video controls, and half watching everything Tivo had killed on the cable network and brought home for me. This is my fourth half of the day. I made a spinning penguin watching a crashing bubble car. Damian's comment; It looks a bit like a five-year-old's dream.
