My iPod is hungry

October 29, 2008

It’s become a voracious little gadget, and I’m trying to keep it fed. My iTunes library pales in comparison to Jenn’s, but I’m working on it. Jenn’s hooking me up with some stuff Friday, and a guy at work is looking to see if he has some songs that I want. What he doesn’t have my parents do, so yay! Also, a CD that I’ve very much been looking forward to is on its way here, and I’m very excited! A DVD too, but that’s not for the iPod.

Anyway, the CD is “Hoggin’ all the Covers” by Band From TV. Never heard of them? How sad for you; they’re very good. Basically, they’re a group of actors who do covers of various songs and raise money for different charities. Go check out their Web site, then order the CD. You’ll like it.

My copy is “in transition” according to Amazon, having left the Cincinnati shipping facility early this morning. Estimated time of arrival is Monday, but I’m really hoping it doesn’t take that long. I mean geez, Cinci is only a few hours away!

All quiet now, except for that music

Kim & Charles’ wedding day

Hmm, it’s been over a month. So many things to tell.

As you can see, my sister got married on March 9; they didn’t tell anyone they were doing this, so I had a brother-in-law for two days and didn’t know it. Do you think she’ll still let me drag her to a bridal shop to try on gowns?

My grandpa had knee surgery on March 6, which should have been a simple thing, but then some bad things were going on with his stomach, so he was in the hospital for a week. Bad times for everyone, especially him, obviously, but he’s home now.

I have two bridesmaids dresses hanging up downstairs, and guess what? Neither fits right. But it was planned that way, kind of, because I’m dieting to make them fit. No, it’s not stupid to do that – I’ve lost 11.5 pounds so shut up! They’ll have to be altered anyway because I’m too short and, well, when you diet the boobs are the first place you lose, so the tops are too big. But I foresee things working out splendidly. And I bought my shoes for both yesterday (1 pair for both, thank you ladies!) and they’re pretty cute. So, hooray!

On the grouchier side, work’s been a serious pain in my ass and there are certain people that I’d really like to punch, but they frown on that, you know. Especially the ones who float along and don’t have a clue what they’re doing and then get praise piled on them for something I helped create. Nice.

But you know what? I’ll get over it. I bust my ass regardless of whether it gets noticed, and I know it, and that’s what matters.

Last night we went to the DAV with Joy and Rodney and caught up. We were going to play pool, but never got around to it, we were so busy babbling. Which reminds me, Dave is in their wedding too, which is in Vegas! Yay Vegas!

The other wedding is my sister-in-law’s wedding, have I mentioned that before? I can’t remember. So we’ll head to Philly in May and Vegas in August. Much traveling for us.

And now, after spending hours uploading (downloading? which way would that go?) songs, I’m listening to Gary Allan on my new iPod nano. Before that it was Dean Martin. I wasn’t sure about this little thing yesterday, but now I’m seeing how great it will be.

Garth in my ear while I’m doing dishes!

Frank in my ear while I’m doing laundry!

Jon in my ear while I’m working!

That’s Brooks, Sinatra and Bon Jovi for the confused among us.

OH! Long Day – Matchbox Twenty – makes me think of BGSU. I’m a weenie, so I’m outta here.
