Sweet vacation days

It doesn’t get any better than backyard vacation blogging, does it?

Oh wait, yes it does: summer evening vacation blogging, when you are blaring your brand-spanking-new, six-days-early birthday present iPod Nano – and blogging.

Love the iPod Nano. Love it, LOVE IT!!!! Really, I’m hearing new things in songs I’ve listened to a hundred times or more. Changes by David Bowie and Closer to Fine by Indigo Girls and Ahead by a Century by the Tragically Hip and the Boomtown Rats I Don’t Like Mondays– the music has never sounded so clear, so crisp, and all this through dollar-store headphones, no less. The only problem is I’m alone in the house and although I want to blare the music, I’m afraid I won’t hear the boys and their endless bedtime requests for another story and a glass of water and biscuits for the dog.

Hey, wait a minute… who said that’s a bad thing? Did I mention I totally heart my new iPod???

Of course, you must name your new iPod. All much-beloved electronics require names. My iPod’s name is Surely.
I’m glad you’re having such a great vacation week!

Marla, any time you feel motivated to use more convential means of transportation, consider yourself welcome. I’ll save a chair on the back porch for you!
Sue, I didn’t know there was a ‘thing’ about naming the iPod. Oh, the pressure! I simply called mine ‘Dani’s iPod’… embarrassingly pedestrian. I’ll have to work on that.
Phantom, same offer to Marla holds for you!! And, I’m all over the iPod games – half the reason I got one was so I could play along with the iPod memes.

Glad you love your Nano!
We got one for big sis as a graduation gift/reward for awesome report card and she loves it (and so do I when i can pry it away from her) Makes folding laundry and doing dishes so much cooler!
Have no clue how she puts music on it though, guess its pretty simple.
Enjoy!
