Oh my goodness we have conquered our fear of electronics and got all my cds converted and loaded onto the new Ipod! It is pretty darn awesome and I wish I'd bought one much sooner. I bought a dock with speakers, too, so I can take it outside this summer..or spring and share all my tunes with my neighbors. HA! It is very cool to have such a range of music playing on shuffle right now. It is way down the road for this, but I love it and may never carry it around with me, but there is an adapter that will let me play it in the car.
We also got new cell phones and got the sims transfered with only minor hassles. However, mine is in my purse right now. I haven't figured out the ring tones, if there are any and don't want to dl some crummy tune that is not cool. I think the coolest ringtone evah would be "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash, but we haven't been able to find it.
We went to the high school group meeting tonight and we are all getting so old and stuff that we have decided we all need to wear name tags. That would be ok for me, because I didn't graduate with them...just married one of 'em. There will be a big reunion later in the year to celebrate the year of their graduation! Aggh, I must lose weight and all that, but hey... they are much older than I. They were all gone from our high school by the time I got there. But it is good fun getting together and trying to figure out who is who each month. LOL I think we all have a touch of Alzheimer's...at least tonight we did a bit. I found a long lost cousin in that mix of people and also one of the guys is married to a woman I used to work with.
Man, I have some really good tunes and a wide variety, too. I'm loving this Ipod thing and have no idea who some of the artists are, since I haven't listened to them like this before. One or more of the cds were from concerts from around here, so you know there is some good ole Austin sounds going on along with Iz and some classical and some Willie Nelson just came on singing with someone I do not recognize.
I've not got the Itunes thing figured out yet, but there are a couple albums I want to buy. Los Lobos' "El Corazon y La Pistola" is very good. I bought the cassette right after coming back from studying in Cuernavaca. Also, Linda Ronstadt's "Canciones de mis Padres" needs to be updated from a cassette via Itunes. I don't know if there is technology to take the music from a cassette to cd or not. I listened a bit to the music from "Slumdog Millionaire" tonight and we must get to the theater to see it. I think it is going to be a good movie and I think I'll like the music. It might be on the list of to buy ones. We'll see. Aha...Harry Connick, Jr. is on now.
We cleaned the house today, so I can kick back some tomorrow and play with the new toys. I took some pics of the goings on in the greenhouse the other day and will try to get them posted soon. I'd hoped to get some posted for Ruby Tuesday, but well, you know.
Take care and like my friend Kate in Scotland signs off saying something like OOXX from the land of the tartan....well, night night from the land of the bluebonnets.
