And in an effort to be as fair as possible to Urban Dad, I've given him plenty of warning to save up because I plan to lose. my. mind. What can I say? I know who I am, and I own it.
Oh, and June Cleaver ASP... I looooooooved my birthday gift . You do know how to make a girl feel special. Yeah, that's the word for it.... "special." (hand fluttering at flushed face as i try to catch my breath)
Now, all that said about birthdays, I did score this from Best Namma Ever!, because she knew that I would never go out and just get myself one (I know...I want to inject botulism around my newly-lasered eyes, but won't treat myself to this):Because with this blog, Facebook & Netflix, I don't have enough to spend way too much time on when on the computer, right? (hee hee) Urban Dad asked what he should get me for my birthday -- I told him to just plan to see a few charges on the Discover from iTunes! It's the smallest iPod -- 1GB, about 250 songs. Honestly, I accepted my un-cool-ness a loooong time ago. I'm good with this humble iPod.
So far, I've loaded a whopping seven songs. (time is an issue you see, in addition to my un-cool-ness) I'm looking just for songs that will keep me going in a workout. And people are SO nice when it comes to sharing the iPod love.... the iLove? The Pink Power Ranger has something like 1500 songs on her (much bigger because she's much cooler) iPod. She's offered to burn a disc for me of things that she thinks that I might like. And a Facebook friend saw my statement that I had "loaded a whopping seven songs" and offered to share a disc that a friend had made for her last year. "You can't just have seven songs on your iPod! That's pitiful!" is what she said.
Well, duh! I'm figuring out iTunes and synching. (can anyone tip me off on how to synch podcasts? anyone? Bueller?) I don't plan to limit myself to seven songs. I just wanted to see it work before I blew out the Discover card $0.99 at a time.
Here's where I started:
Here's where I started:
Two songs from this group (Clocks & Viva la Vida):
And five songs from this:
I knew while sitting entranced with this movie that I wanted this music. I defy you to listen to Jai Ho and not feel like you can do a four-minute-mile.
What? You haven't seen the movie yet? Get a move on! I loved this movie, everything about it.
And may every girl find her very own Jamal!!(because we know how I feel about Edward)
Feel free to leave any workout-worthy tune suggestions!
