music and more music

We're getting an iPod. No, really. We are. At last, we too shall be like those happy folks on tv just dancing wildly to the coolest of cool music. Watching videos. Podcasts. True bliss as interpreted by the advertising agencies that run our every waking moment!

No one warned me about the interminable downloading of cd's. We have hundreds of cd's and after two weeks straight of daily downloading, now have 13 days worth of music. We aren't even half way through our collection. Not only has this been a test of my computer's tolerance, but proof of the Pavlovian training involved with hearing the "end of the download" jingle combined with a semi-aerobic work out.

Turn on tv/pack boxes for moving.
Absorb drivel/curse packing boxes for moving.
Hear jingle.
Jump up.
Trip over cats.
Run 3 feet to computer.
Eject cd.
Insert new cd.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
Periodically get new stack of cd's from shelves.

My life in a nutshell. But, for 13 days, I won't hear the same song repeated. Every James Taylor, Ben Harper, Grateful Dead, Chucklehead, Babaloo, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Bonnie Raitt song recorded in one place. All of the 80's music I loved. In one place.

Now how do I plug it in?
