Happy Friday!

Happy birthday to blairwitchgreen and silverkun!

Happy early birthday to robyn_ma and underwatercolor, who both advance a year over the weekend!

iPod Lust
For months, yendi said that once he found his external CD player, I'd be able to burn mix CDs from iTunes.

He found it. It's broken.

For months he said that when he found his Rio mp3 player, I could listen to songs from iTunes on my walks and in the car.

He found it. It needed a USB cable.

But his Rio's an older model and can't connect with a USB cable.

It's been a year now since I was promised the ability to listen to music from my iTunes when I'm more than a few feet away from my computer *and I am going crazy*.

I. Need. An iPod. My kingdom for an iPod. I swear, man. I'm going nuts over here. You have no idea. I live in music. The 20-gig is on my wishlist, but I could totally deal with the 15.

(Speaking of which, the iPod Mini? Stupid idea. Stupid stupid. A 4-gig for $249 when you can get a 15-gig for $299? No sense is being made there.)

I will beg my family for one for Chanukah, but that's so far away... *sigh* Suck. Suck suck suck.

Dinner Party
sibylla and kaliwohi made us dinner! They packed us off home with a tub of homemade spaghetti sauce and tummies full of spaghetti and homemade garlic bread and very good dark chocolate and coffee. And that's where last night's song lyrics came from, because I was half-dozing all content in the backseat on the way home. It was a good night... good food and, far more important, good company. Thank for getting us out of the house, guys. :)

Now for my Friday Three...
Hair in a ponytail, about to be braided. Simple off-white slinky shirt and jeans.

Eats, Shoots & Leaves at home, still Comics Prose at lunches. Why so slow? I'm only reading one story per day, and I'm using the rest of my time to write! Speaking of which, the Alanna thing I was writing yesterday got really freakin' disturbing, let me tell you.

Tonight: Skinny Puppy concert - if they have a place for me to stand out of the way at that club. Because Seizure Lass on packed dance floor? Doubleplusungood.

Tomorrow: Writing Marathon!

Sunday: Haircuts from lupaloo - we still on for that, Lupa? Otherwise, more unpacking. Hear that, yendi? More unpacking. :P

Thank you, drive through.
