Ipod and Ice

I finally bought an Ipod a couple of days ago. Granted, it was used (gotta love Craigslist), and it's a Shuffle. Small and cheap. Really, though, why would I need more than 250 songs at any one time? At three minutes per song on average, that's about twelve and a half hours of music. I really only want it while I'm taking walks, and I just don't see myself walking for much longer than that.

The guy I bought it from had purchased it, then his mom got him a Nano for his birthday a few days later. He had used it twice. I got a good deal on it -- paid $10 less than what I expected. Dave Ramsey would be proud.

The guy was very nice. All in all it was a great transaction. He had a really cool apartment, too -- with huge lime green circles on the wall, and some very feng-shui asian decor. As we left, we kinda figured he was batting for the other team, if you know what I mean. On the way home, I flipped through the music he had left on the Ipod... Debbie Gibson, Paula Abdul, lots of Mariah Carey, some really good jazz... Suspicions confirmed, I think.

Everything is iced over here. Seems like a great day to run some more laundry and import my CD collection to my ITunes library. Might even scrub a bathroom or two. Woo-hoo!

I already had today off for MLK, but Knight is home as well due to the weather. It's nice to be home together and relax, since we *can't* go run errands or anything. We're also watching Superman Returns. Again.

All in all, I think it will be a great day.

If there is one thing I love about Texas it is that if there is a "threat" of ice, everyone stocks up on twinkies and water and stays home.

I guess I never really understood why people never realize that it is Texas, and any bad weather will not last longer than 48 hours, and that most households, I am sure, have at least a 2 day supply of food already.

Its Armageddon every year. But I get to stay home with my Damsel.

The answer is that we take our holidays when we can get them, and icy weather is so rare here, it is really meant to be enjoyed. Helps to make up for the summertime heat with the ensuing drought, fire ants, scorpions, rattlesnakes, etc.

All of our elective cases cancelled for today, and I did not get called in to GTH last night on call, so I am having instant chat on my phone w/ Beezneez, hanging out w/ Nana, and consuming some gourmet coffee while watching very light sleet come down outside (but then, doesn't it always? You know, come down outside?).

The pics of "Man-cub on ice" are great.
