Shuffle, Shuffle

Three minutes after I had hit the snooze button on my alarm clock, silencing Rob Thomas, the buzzer for my apartment blarred and I sat up in bed, instantly wide awake. It took about five seconds to register just "What the hell is that noise!?!"

Now, on a typical day, sleep outweighs EVERYTHING else before 2 (ah, the joys of a night shift). I had the thought, who could be stopping by today? Then I realized the truth, it was probably the FedEx guy delivering my new toy.

And it was! My iPod arrived a couple of days earlier than I thought it would. To add to the joy, it arrived charged up! So I spent the extra hour that I normally snooze loading all the music from iTunes to my iPod. The little, light weight iPod now has over 3,500 songs in it and I'm busy taking all the sound files from my old computer and preparing them for iTunes and the iPod.

I normally don't listen to iTunes on shuffle and I will probably start listening to albums or artists on the iPod, but to test the new toy out, I've been playing the shuffle tonight. Here is just a taste of the random playlist and my music collection:

*Note, I wrote this post last night, yet Blogger was being difficult. Does anyone else think that Blogger can act like a stubborn little child, kicking and screaming? Here's to hoping this post finally works.
**Also, the lack of posting is because I've been organizing a bunch of sound files on my computer for the iPod.
