My iPod Has Issues – It Has Been a Busy Day

11 Oct

It has been a busy day. It all started with a Historic Lebanon meeting at 7:30. Then, I went to work and prepared for my 9:30 class. After a quick lunch, it was time for my 12:30 class. At that point, I spent time at the copy machine making tests. That involves pushing more buttons than they push in a NASA control room.

I left campus and went to the bank. There were deposits to make. Then, it was to a meeting about city council issues. When that meeting was over, I drove to a meeting of the James E. Ward Agriculture and Community Center Management Committee. Yep, that is a along name. A lot of government committees have long names.

At that point, I went back to campus to finish making copies of tests. Of course, that involved pushing a bunch of buttons. On a mission to find copy paper, I ran into a couple of the other history professors and talked to them for a bit.

After all of that, I made it home to have a dinner of cold pizza. To wind down, I decided to have a little bourbon and see what is going on inside the mind of my iPod.

My iPod Has Issues – Bonfire of the Tweens

25 May

Last night, we joined our neighbors in hosting a “School’s Out for Summer” party for a bunch of 6th graders. They played games in our yard before going to the other house to eat burgers and S’mores. We grilled the burgers, and the neighbors provided the fire pit.image-26

It was fun, but I am worn out.

Two girls spent the night with my stepdaughter. They are still asleep, and my wife is cooking breakfast. The smells of bacon and pancakes are snaking their way through the house.

Since it is Memorial Day weekend, I put on my 7th Cavalry t-shirt and sat down to write a post-party, pre-Memorial Day post. However, my mind is as tired as my body. With that in mind, I am going back to the old faithful. Yep, it is time to dig into my iPod and see what it happening. I hope the iPod is not as tired as I am.

Shuffle it up.

My iPod Has Issues – Part 10

7 Nov

“So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.” I am as flustered as Willy Wonka after a long day touring the chocolate factory.  By the way, I am talking about the real Willy Wonka instead of that crazy Johnny Depp one.

Tests to grade. Meetings to attend. On and on and on it goes. What was it that Sonny and Cher sang? “The Beat Goes On” (Yeah, I was going to link that, but WordPress is all fouled up for some reason.)

With all of this stuff going on, I can’t spend much time in the Land of SBI. Everyone knows what that means. It’s time for a quick post, and the quickest post I know of delves into the dark regions of my iPod. Let’s shuffle it up and see what craziness comes out.
