i must first get this out of my system: it's killing me that i can't use my iPod!! i thought it was a cd-rom dysfunction causing the problem (logical, right? my computer doesn't recognize any disks that i put in the slot), so i trekked to the computer-help-desk (sadly, a blatant misnomer), cd-rom drive in hand, and i asked for a replacement. they gave me one to borrow. i got home. i put it in.

it still didn't work.

so now i have to go back there. making it even worse is the fact that josh warned me not to just bring just the drive, because he felt there was a larger problem going on (user stupidity, maybe?), but i didn't listen.

i realize that i survived the last 24 years and 5.5 months of my life without an iPod, so it really shouldn't bother me that i'm going to have to wait just a little longer, but it does. back to the help-desk i will go, this time carrying the whole shebang. it will be iPod or bust.

i'm deep into physiology now. so interesting! so much sense to be made. i'm not sure if i would be so rapturous if i wasn't coming off of trying to memorize the layers of tissue which surround the testicles, but hey, whatever works.

    see, this is why you should stop watching tv. i have no idea what an ipod is and i won't ever care. ignorace = bliss!

    lug that thing up to boston, and i'll take a look at it for ya, free, of course :) besides, the weather here is SOOO fantastic. 2 thumbs up for gangrene, baby.

  2. well: an iPod is an mp3 player that holds anywhere from 20 - 60 (!) GB of music (4 GB for the mini, iPod's little brother (or sister, depending on the color you choose)). it is about the size of a deck of cards. i wanted one mostly because i like to run to music and i am really looking forward to having all my music in one tiny package. also, it's super cute.

    and i don't watch that much tv. at least in durham, these things are ubiquitous. thanks for the computer-service offer, but it works now. yeah!
