Sweet vacation days

It doesn't get any better than backyard vacation blogging, does it?

Oh wait, yes it does: summer evening vacation blogging, when you are blaring your brand-spanking-new, six-days-early birthday present iPod Nano - and blogging.

Love the iPod Nano. Love it, LOVE IT!!!! Really, I'm hearing new things in songs I've listened to a hundred times or more. Changes by David Bowie and Closer to Fine by Indigo Girls and Ahead by a Century by the Tragically Hip and the Boomtown Rats I Don't Like Mondays- the music has never sounded so clear, so crisp, and all this through dollar-store headphones, no less. The only problem is I'm alone in the house and although I want to blare the music, I'm afraid I won't hear the boys and their endless bedtime requests for another story and a glass of water and biscuits for the dog.

Hey, wait a minute... who said that's a bad thing? Did I mention I totally heart my new iPod???
