I cannot forget the way I feel right now

So it got to that point on my iPod Shuffle, where I was really sick of the songs on there. It was time to wipe it out and start over so that I would be pushed during my upcoming workouts. That was only one of the small things I had planned to do yesterday. But it inexplicably took all day to get this done.

Our Vista Media Center PC in the living room was totally acting up. Maybe it felt ignored since we hadn't watched any movies on it, or maybe it was cranky because it was missing some critical updates. But this is the machine that holds all of our MP3s from our ripped CDs so it needs to be running properly and working on the network.

Unfortunately, iTunes doesn't yet work with Vista, so in order to get my iPod set up, I need to do it on our office computer, which is all the way upstairs. Anyone who's been to my house knows that there are about 5 mini-flights of stairs between these two computers. So troubleshooting home network issues is not quick, though it does burn calories.

I finally figured out that the stupid Norton firewall, plus some settings in Vista were preventing our XP computer from connecting to the Vista one. At 11pm. Mind you, I started this whole process around noon. Just to be clear, I didn't work on this all day. Which was good, otherwise we'd probably have a very sad Media Center PC with a hammer in it and all of its plastic parts scattered in the living room.

Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, I downloaded about 10 new songs from iTunes in the past couple of weeks. I've been writing down what songs I'd like to download when I hear them so that I remember what I want when I'm on iTunes at home. Here are some of my new favorites:
  • "Little Wonders" - Rob Thomas
  • "Too Little, Too Late" - JoJo
  • "In da Club" - OutKast
  • "Not Ready to Make Nice" - Dixie Chicks
  • "Would You Go With Me" - random country guy

So when I got to the gym today, I fired up the ol' iPod, and had one of the best workouts I've had in ages. I went back to week 3 of the Couch to 5K program, since I haven't run consistently since March. And it was a breeze. I was actually having fun, which is something I rarely experience during exercise. So I'm hoping that by next weekend, I'll be able to start Week 4 again and pick up where I left off.

That was a great way to start the weekend. And tonight, I'm going to see Vienna Teng at the Triple Door. Twice. Woo hoo!

Ooh, and thanks Leslie for pointing out the Grey's Anatomy character quiz! It tells me I am most like Addison: "strong and independent but occasionally need a shoulder to cry on." Interesting. Hopefully that doesn't mean I would also want to be part of a crappy spinoff show. Wow, that show was bad. So if you watch GA, take the quiz and let me know who you are!


  1. I'm Callie. Life's too short not to be lived to the fullest and if it scares some people, then who needs them? I am also being shafted in a really annoying way by my loser ass husband and his girlfriend. K$

  2. So I guess you agree with me too about the George-Izzy annoying storyline. Ugh. Callie is such an interesting character, I hope they keep her. McSteamy needs a woman. Or maybe the Chief. That would be cool. Though I guess you're not supposed to sleep with your boss. Of course, it is GA. Nothing would happen if people didn't sleep with their bosses.

  3. Seeing as how I am Callie, I think I would rather sleep with McSteamy. I'd even date him for a while. They better keep me!

  4. Yeah, that spinoff was pretty awful. And what's with the 15-yo receptionist? Couldn't they at least have made him older? That just confused me.

    I saw Notes on a Scandal the other day, and that was another "How is this woman attracted to a kid? Yeech!" moment.

  5. Oh, that last post was was LL :P


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
