My iPod Has Issues – Brain Block

7 Oct

There are several ideas rattling around in my brain, but they are all being blocked by my thoughts on long pants and socks. The problem is that I am not ready to write that post because it has not properly formulated itself in my mind. It will contain important information, and I want it to come out right.

Here I sit. Laptop in my lap. Television on some documentary that is not interesting. An almost empty glass of orange juice on the table. What to do? What to do?

I know. I will turn on the iPod and see what it going on inside its brain. Hopefully, there are no long pants or socks blocking it from thinking.Block Brick

My iPod Has Issues – Part 8

10 Sep

My iPod is on the couch and ready to bare its soul. It wants to know why it drives people crazy. It wants to know why people think it’s weird. It wants to know if it truly has a split personality. The only way to do that is to let the psychiatrist delve into the deep recesses of its mind.Psychiatrist
