Overkill

I've got a fairly nice television sitting on my desk. It's been there for months, lying dormant. Why? Because it only has a coaxial connection for input, and everything I wanted to hook up to it is strictly RCA output. I used to have a number of broken VCRs lying around, and any of those would have filled the gap nicely, but I couldn't remember why they were useful when folks were cleaning house around here and demanding justification for every last item.
(senseless loss of usable technology. *sigh*)

Anyway... I was at Radio Shack last night, buying the four adapters necessary to hook up a single pair of earphones to my new soundcard, when it occurred to me they might have something more convenient than a broken VCR for making that conversion. Sure enough, there was a quick and easy solution available. $29 RF Adapter. I brought it home without a moment's hesitation.

So, now I'm looking around, and I can't remember for the life of me what I'd wanted to hook up to the television, or more importantly: why.

Ah well. I need some music in here anyway. Hooking up the Playstation so I can play audio CDs...

Someone needs to sleep more...
Not that my memory is the greatest in the world, but then, I could probably use more sleep as well. But, probably if we each slept more often, and in a more predictable pattern, we'd probably get some semblance of a memory back...

Hey, speaking of things forgotten...
Ever going to finish the money saga?

Really? Who?
I remembered the need. Just not it's purpose. I'm sure it'll come to me.

In all seriousness, that wasn't the thrust of my post. I'm more interested in the fact that I had to spend thirty dollars on an adapter because Phillips didn't want to spend thirty cents to include that connection. Between that, the use of a playstation and TV to play audio CDs ('cause my computer's speakers aren't working), and the daisychain of four seperate adapters required to hook up earphones to my sound card, I kind of figured I had a strong theme going. Guess not.

Sleep's overrated. Auditions start on Wednesday, I've got projects of my own, and a ton of responsibilities to keep up with. Who has time to rest?
