I caved. I caved into the hype. I caved into blatant consumerism. Today I purchased a 2GB iPod Nano. I also purchased an armband to wear it while walking. The cool thing about the armband is the iPod holder detaches from the band. It has a clip on the back so I can clip the iPod to my waistband while at the gym.

Then of course I had to get an FM transmitter/cradle thingy for the car. It plugs into the cigarette lighter or the extra power tap in the car. It supposed to transmit your tunes to the radio. I have heard mix reviews. We shall see.

It was a gift to myself for all the suffering I endure here in the vortex. ;)

Le Revenant

My Uncle from the realms of Death
Returned to draw an early breath
And as he walked upon the heath
The wild wind whistled through his teeth.

He came unto a habitation
That was the centre of a nation
He knocked upon each house and said:
It is much better to be dead.

And when they stoned him from the door
He vowed he would come back no more.

Happily Shrinking

This morning I decided to stand upon the scale. I have lost another two pounds. So far I have lost 7 pounds! I am very happy about this. Currently I am at 191 lbs (86.64kg or about 13.6 stone) I wish to lose 10 lbs more. Then I'll decide if I need to lose more.

According to the Body Mass Index thingy I am at 26.6%, which is overweight. So, I guess this means 2.5% points less I'll be "normal". The BMI thingy also states my ideal body weight is 166 lbs (75kg or about 12 stone). I'm not sure. To me this seems a little too skinny.

Oh hell, I'm craving chocolate!

Sandman Character?

Dream of the Endless

You are Dream! Many people see you as living in
your own little world. Though you would never
try to harm someone needlessly, you are not
always aware of the consequences of your
(I am not sure about this, but at least I have a full head of hair!)

Late Night

It's one of those nights when I know I should go to bed, but I just can't. Instead, it's plenty of red wine, Stevie Nicks and cats gone wild. My children are tearing up the house! They have fully recovered from their operations and are expressing it. I am very grateful for their recovery. The picture above is of Nora-Grace and myself. Yes she has a hyphenated first name just like me. It's difficult to get a picture of her with her eyes open. She doesn't like the flash.

I have been making notations on a pad of paper of all the books that I need to catalogue in Library Thing. I have plenty more to do, but ran out of steam. Currently all the books that don't have ISBNS need to be manually entered so I have had them lying on the shelves on their backs. Isn't this interesting? Anyway I have been recording all the information needed on a pad of paper so I can enter them at a later date and get my shelves back in order.

Of course this requires much wine.
