You Say It’s Your Birthday?

It’s my birthday, too, yeah!

Suffice it to say that I’m still in my 30’s. 

One of my birthday presents arrived last night, one of them new-fangled iPod Nanos.  I’m so hip and happening, I can hardly stand it.  We actually went to the PX on Wednesday to buy one, but they were still all cleaned out from the holidays.  We looked at other MP3 players.  Actually, I looked at them while dh went on and on about gigabytes and storage and what I did and did not need.  I just smiled and looked pretty.  When he stopped talking, I asked him if these very nice, tiny little things were iPods.  Then he decided that I was pretty clueless and therefore, did not need an iPod.  We sent in search of socks while he very patiently explained to me that iPod is a brand name, like Kleenex and Walkman.  And that these iPods play music (which I knew). 

Back at home, I did some research, figured out exactly what my dh was talking about, discovered that indeed, an iPod (the brand) was what I wanted, found a good price and bought it.  Even got one-day shipping for $1.99.  Then I bought a shiny pink iPod case on eBay.

Yesterday, while waiting for the UPS to arrive with my present, I uploaded all my favorite songs from my best of the 80’s CDs on to my computer.   The iPod arrived right before we all left for our Cub Scout Pack meeting, but I had time to plug it into the computer and get it all charged up and ready for use.  I’m actually looking forward to my workout this afternoon.  It’ll be nice to listen to Songs From My Youth instead of watching myself in the mirror.

So anyway, it’s my birthday.  My grandpa will be happy to tell you about the night I was born and that my mom went on and on about how beautiful I was and how he thought I looked like a drowned rat. LOL!  Grandpa’s – gotta love them!

More Mac and Cheese, please!

    I love my MP3 player! I’ve gotten totally addicted to podcasts – KNITTING podcasts! If you want me to tell you about some good ones let me know! :)

  • Happy Birthday to my favorite cousin! I hope you have a wonderful day!
    And what is really funny, is that I can picture my mom singing and dancing to the birthday song. Enjoy your day Lorri

  • Happy Birthday!

    If you’re going to use the Nano for workouts, check out the Nike – iPod kit. I just got mine, it’snot set up yet, but it keeps track of your progress and will help mark milestones. (I’m going to have mine tell me how happy it is I bothered to get off my butt and exercise…)
