Yay! Boring and Unemotional!

Hmmm, I wa trolling Unapplied tonight since earlier I dedicated a song to Skillzy on Facebook. I found this and decided since I have such a vast diversity of things in iTunes (though I keep my iPod nice and tight, can’t stand to be alone in the car and hit shuffle only for the Dora theme song to come on). Given last night’s sobfest–that and I just got back from my bimonthly squealfest and finished the assembly line method of bathing children–it seems like more fun. Totally self-indulgent, but hey, i got a pedicure today and am in a good mood despite my evening’s adventures.

    WOw. Intersting info. I didnt know you could do that on ipod. But I dont have one, Big Daddy, Bama, and Sledge have one. Not I. A bit odd, since I LOVE tunes. I guess I am old fashioned, still lstening to Cd’s…
    Never heard if DreamTheater? Is it like mood music? Sleep stuff? Glad to see Loretta on there. Dang proud of you.

    Bossy P. – neat idea, very surprised to see a Dream Theater reference ! is it just in there or do you listen, those guy have amazing talent.(leigh it’s only mood music if you’re in the mood to rock :o)
    When I get to my main iTunes library I may see how mine shakes out. Just curious as to what kind of files you have these saved as 764 Gb is huge for 4158 songs ? just curious

    Dullbert: we are total Dream Theater nerds. Well, I’m a fan but my husband is the nerd. He went to Radio City Music Hall for their April 1, 2006 concert (20th anniversary tour) and still talks about it in his sleep!

    I have a lot of podcasts in iTunes. In my quest to appear as smart as the women I hang out with, I listen to a lot of the iTunes U stuff LOL

    thats cool, is that when they had the full orchestra with them ? think i saw part of the DVD. I’ve got my own nerd moment coming up in a few weeks that involves traveling and a band.

  7. MissBossyPants said,

    Dullbert: my husband wore a *hot pink shirt* to the concert so he could find himself on the DVD. This is what happens when you marry a math geek.
