Today a horrible thing happened. My iPod was slightly destroyed. I think that I will be able to fix it but I am slightly nervous. Lakeiya’s (you can see all posts that include Lakeiya here and the most important one that indroduces her here) last day at the office is today, “sob, cry, wail,” and I made her three CDs to send her off on her way. One is full of soul, one is bubbly happy and fun, and the other isfull of really good songs. They are great CDs. I hope she enjoys them half as much as I do. I wanted to make sure the playlists were on my iPod so that I could enjoy them. I wasn’t sure if they were getting added properly so I synced them to the iPod. MISTAKE!!! It erased everything but those playlists. I should certainly know better but I was half asleep and it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Of course my iTunes library is still intact. However, there are some songs on there that I can’t play in iTunes for reasons unknown. It can’t find the source file or something. Anyway, I think I can still put them on the iPod but I’m not sure. I know I can’t put them on CDs. I am so worried. All my Wesly Willis might be lost. Much of me Belle and Sebastian is also in that same boat. I’ll have to wait until I get home to be sure but keep your fingers crossed for me and for my shuffle game. One good thing to come out of it is that I can now clean up my iPod and get rid of all the crap that ended up on it.

Tomorrow my Blog will be one year old. It also happens to be Lakeiya's birthday. I don’t typically post on Saturdays and tomorrow will probably not be an exception to that rule. Because of that, I wanted to give this page a happy birthday a little bit early. Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting and making this a happy page. It has become more than something to do to keep me from being bored. It has become something I enjoy and has grown and has allowed me to be introduced to some interesting people. Happy Birthday to you, my Almost Interesting friend and to you my Certainly Interesting but Soon Departing friend.

The one unguessed song from this week:
These are the games that we employ/ I am a girl and you’re a boy/ No matter what you said to me/ I didn’t have the energy. happens to be “The Chair That Squeaks,” by The Rapture. I wouldn’t have known it either.

Losing music is a horrible thing indeed. I hope you can get your favorites back.

Happy Birthday to the Blog.

Since you'll be "around" tomorrow I'm doing the Blogathon 48 posts in 24 hours.

I would love for you to come by.

Have a great weekend, sweets.

Happy Bloggiversary!

I had an Ipod crash that forced me to get a new one. We still don't know what happened to it. But I'm happy with my 80gig now.

Good luck! Hopefully you're music isn't lost forever.

Happy birthday to your blog. I hitthat last moth - it's a funny thing to ralize you've been posting all that time, isn't it? Oh, and sorry about the iPod - that sucks.

Hipy Papy to Lakeiya, and bon voyage to her too! I hope you two stay in touch.

Sorry about the iPod though. Sounds like you're going to have a "fun" weekend, reconstructing your indispensable music dispenser.

And Hipy Papy to your blog, too! What does one get a 1-year-old blog for a present? A virtual cake?

Yayness! Happy birthday blog! And I'm terribly sorry about your iPod. I, for one, would seriously throw a fit if I either lost or broke my iPod. It's the only thing that keeps me sane during my commute to work everyday.

Sorry 'bout the Ipod. Hope it all turns out in the end.

Happy 1 year anniversary to you and your blog.

Thanks Everyone! My blog is feeling frisky, fine, and much loved.

My iPod is ok. I didn't erase the music from the computer, just the device, so I had to put it back on. There were a few things that I couldn't transfer due to losing files over time but with some hard work I should have those back eventually.

Happy birthday, Blog.

My music player uses regular MP3's, and unlike with Apple's, there aren't restrictions placed on how you move or back up the files (it is just like a hard drive)

Sorry to hear about your iPod, but happy bloggy anniversary! I find it interesting that many blogs start up in the summer months; I'd think that blogs would be pop up during winter when it would be too cold to do anything.
