My iPod Has Issues – Better Than Going Postless

17 Aug

There is an idea rattling around inside my head, but I am way too busy to write it. I just finished my Annual Activity Report, which my colleagues and I thought we had avoided, and I am due to work in the Rotary concession stand in a few hours. Our county is home to the largest fair in Tennessee, and my contribution is spending one night selling hamburgers. If this rain holds up, then there may not be much to do.Fair

On top of that, there is a Planning Commission meeting in the morning and a meeting with my Dean in the afternoon. Oh yeah, I also have to prepare for the start of the semester. That includes a short presentation about Simon Wiesenthal for a small group of faculty.

Obviously, there is not much time to write an in-depth post about my grand idea. Instead, I am going go back into the mind of my iPod. Lately, we have done that a lot, and I hope we do not turn its mind into mush. An iPod lobotomy would be a terrible result. The music could get all jumbled up.

It is a scary proposition, but we have to plow ahead. Going postless would be the only alternative.

    Do ya think Chubby shoulda been sued for all the injuries sustained from Twisting?

      I wonder how he turned out. Here’s some trivia. His stage name was a play off of Fats Domino.

        Never knew that. Cool! I do know that he made a decent living for many years off his few 60’s hits. Always liked Tzena Tzena. I was lousy at the Twist though.

      Thank you. Various forms of music tend to make their way onto my iPod. It makes most people wonder what is going on.
