iPod WIN!

In a burst of pure awesome, lovely Arwen’s lovely mother Beth, who sometimes comments here, gave me her extra iPod. But first, Mr Arwen’s Husband, the high supreme Mr Bloggle, loaded it with almost every Led Zeppelin tune ever, as well as Good Omens, which is the best Apocalypse novel of all time, including the future, I bet.

Even though I have only owned this little machine for 27 hours, it has already changed my life. Check this:

1) It makes me about 25 percent more efficient. Last night when I looked at the car jockey lineup for today, I was like, “Pfft, Boss, I’m not telepathic twins!” and then I got almost everything done, including a car that wasn’t even on the lineup. The Co-Op can thank the Zep for that, because I just kept hurrying everything along so I could get to listen to more songs. The Boss was like, “What, you did that already? Woah!” Also, I hauled myself out of bed earlier than I would have, since I woke up and remembered I’d cued the iPod to ‘In The Evening’, for maximum rock-out.

2) It makes radio music more fun. It’s like a drug or something. I mean, I love driving cars and listening to rock and roll, which is why I have the job in the first place. But now, I’m LOVING the radio. I don’t even know why. It’s like I’m hearing everything again for the first time.

3) People give me a wider berth. I know part of it is that I am walking faster, but I think it also has something to do with the crazy-ass grin on my face and the occasional air-drum fills I am doing. Seriously. That showing-everything-on-my-face problem I have has stopped being a problem and means people see me as potentially scary. Cool!

4) I invented bus dancing today. You know how the bus makes you sway as you ride? Just hang onto something and let the rhythm sway you: Voila! You’re bus-dancing! Oh, don’t accidentally hit anyone with your not-holding-on hand. That’s a faux-pas.

Thank you to Beth, Arwen, and John, for the little green creature that is changing my life!
