On the phone with Doreen a while ago:
Me: I think I'm the only person in the entire world who doesn't have an MP3 player.
Doreen: No, I'm sure lots of people don't have MP3 players.
Me: Sigh. I doubt it.
Later, Doreen called me back.
Doreen: Hey, it's me, you remember how you said you were the last person in the world without an MP3 player?
Doreen: You were right. Even the Duggar kids have iPods!!
Oh yeah? OH YEAH, DOREEN? Well I got NEWS FOR YOU, SISTER! I am the PROUD owner of a NEW 4 Gig MP3 player. In YOUR face. Yeah, I said it. In YOUR face.
How do I use the stupid thing anyway?
I bought special headphones-- or pardon me, "ear buds" - and a "sport band" so I could wear my new MP3 player on my arm and go jogging, and have music: handsfree!
I downloaded LimeWire and then downloaded some music (in Canada P2P is still legal, so in YOUR face, FBI). I downloaded such gems as: Pump Up The Jam (oh yes I did, and you know you love it), Bad Romance (don't act like it's not on your MP3 player too), Milkshake (my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard. I could teach you but I'd have to charge. Cash only, no credit. Sorry), and Everyday People (both the Arrested Development and Sly & The Family Stone versions, because they are both so funkalicious). I also downloaded a bunch of other stuff that I didn't think anybody would have heard of. If you have any suggestions for good-to-work-out-to (or just plain good) music, I would love to hear them.
I figured out how to transfer the music onto the MP3 player.
My MP3 player got locked and loaded in the Sport Band.
Yesterday I strapped on my locked and loaded MP3 player in it's Sport Band, put my shoes on, stretched out, and:
unloaded the dishwasher and made granola bars.
