iPods Change Lives

iTunes doesn’t have any of the songs from Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation album!  NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!  How will I get my Escapade fix?  Or Love Will Never Do Without You?  Or Miss You Much?  Or Black Cat? Or for that matter, Rhythm Nation?  Arg!  My brother said there are some songs you can only get if you buy the whole album but I can’t find hide or hair of these songs or the album.  Any suggestions?  I may have to buy the CD off ebay and load it into my computer.  If it were just one song I was looking for, I wouldn’t bother but since it’s 4 or 5, I am OK with it.

Today I had my first experience with a real life paradox.  A woman got off the elevator in front of me.  From behind she was gorgeous!  Great hair.  Long, dark, and curled in loose waves down her back.  Great figure. She was thin but curvy. She had on a great tan tweed skirt, long boots, and a camel colored cashmere cowl-neck sweater.  I really admired her look.  In my mind I imagined her young and beautiful.  Only, when she turned around, she was about 50 to 55 years old with granny glasses and a slightly saggy, wrinkled face that was in no way what my mind imagined.  Yikes.  The paradox really was unnerving.

Bob’s Dad’s obit was in the paper today.  It was pretty basic and didn’t give me much information I didn’t know other than his name was the same as his father’s before him.  So there are 4 of them.  Bob’s Grandpa, Bob’s dad, Bob’s brother, and Bob’s nephew.  Tomorrow I am off work and going to get the cheese/meat trays from Sam’s Club and suit shopping with Bob.  Saturday is the memorial service.  I have absolutely no clue what to expect and am somewhat nervous about the whole thing.  Oh!  And I cannot forget to make a pan of brownies to bring.  It almost slipped my mind.

Counseling yesterday was good.  I may cut back to every other week here now and see how that goes.  My counselor is good at remembering my goals and if any have been reached/attained.  At our session yesterday, I discovered I have made quite a bit of progress and that is good news.  Yay me.

I started with an iPod issue and am going to finish with one.  Here is a meme that’s been floating around for a while. Consider yourself tapped to do it if you have an mp3 player. Instructions: Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud, and press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question. No cheating now.

3.) What do my friends really think of me?

Do what my son does - check the CDs out from the library and load them into your computer. Only, that's illegal so you didn't hear it from me. You know, in case you see any copyright police in the next few days.

Or if you want, I could burn a copy of mine and send it out to you. Just let me know!
