As I was
I think I might breakdown and finally get an iPod. I don't own an mp3 player of any kind. I got an iPod shuffle a few years ago. Magnum got it for free - I forget how - and smartly gave it to me. So I have an iTunes account and have playlists on the computer, but that's it. Nothing portable.
The shuffle was a bust. Ever have one? All of the controls were incorporated into the earbuds. If one sweats while wearing them, and the sweat gets into the controls, the controls go out the window. I only used mine while sweating. I enjoyed the songs until they were played at max volume and max volume only, with me being unable to do anything about it. WHAT?
I wasn't the only one that happened to. The shuffle and I parted ways. I could make do without, I told myself. I'd be the bhikkhuni of mp3's. ("bhikkhuni" is a word I learned today. They're like female monks). Apparently, I've grown tired of the nunnery. I want an iPod. One with controls that work.
In fact, the more I sit here thinking about it, the more I want one, like, now. If I blog it, it will come.
Also, by now, most everyone's heard of the Crossing Guard Cat, right?
I'd like one of those too.
But I think I'll start with the iPod.
