Walking

Have Nano, Will Travel

Yesterday I managed to locate both my iPod Nano and the ear buds (why they were not in the sam place to begin with is a mystery for the ages), and so I had musical accompaniment to the first segment of my walk to pick up The Princess at school.

For your amusement, the shuffled songs were:

“Mean Eyed Cat”–Johnny Cash, Unchained
“His Yoke is Easy”–Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Handel’s Messiah
“Oh No”–The Commodores, 20th Century Masters
“Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter of Zion”–Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Handel’s Messiah
“Inner City Blues (Makes Me Wanna Holler)”–Marvin Gaye, Sexual Healing

(Yes, the ‘bird has eclectic tastes.)

On the way home, instead of Madeleine Peyroux, I got a detailed description of how many “fortune tellers” The Princess made at school yesterday.

“Do you want your fortune told?” she asked.

“Sure.” I’m a good sport, after all. I listen to Fatboy Slim and Flogging Molly because the boys put them on my iTunes.

“Maybe not this one, though,” she said, referring to the “fortune teller” she was holding. “It’s all bad things that could happen to you, like today you’ll trip over something, or hurt someone, or hit your head. Maybe we could try one of the other ones in my backpack when we get home. I have about twenty.”

“Okay,” I answered, wondering if any learning occured at school this day.

Then, I tripped.

  1. Okay, I just started a comment on your blog with “Okay,” too. How weird is that?
    Believe me, I can help you with the yarn problem, if not the other. I’m sure there are many fine purveyors of yarnage in Hotlanta.

  2. So, which do I need more…iPod or laptop?.Both is not an acceptable answer, sadly.I do love the mix on yours,- suspect mine would be similarly eclectic.

  3. Songbird,
    thanks for the grin – and for the memory of those little paper folded fortune tellers we used to make….
    Kathryn,
    Definately a laptop. 🙂

  4. Kathryn a lap top! You can’t blog from an ipod as far as I know.
    cheesehead I am deficient in both too. I can knit and like it – but haven’t done any for years. A friend is having a baby in the autumn… mmm maybe I’ll knit in the summer. Right now I’ve got my nose in too many books and you cannot knit and read at the same time, no matter how good you are in multitasking.
    songbird – this brought back memories 🙂

  5. Hey, Rach, come hang out with me by the fence. We can wear our cool shirts and laugh at the kids tangling their yarn up in their earbud cords!
    Ha!

  6. Clever one, that Princess. I’m impressed with your eclectic tastes. However, I too am iPodless and yarnless. But, I’m not feeling odd about it all, now that all these fine folks have admitted to the same.
