Keep Calm and Swag On

Look at what my favorite Dragon Soup is wearing:

And look at what I got:

I know, I know. You look at it and for a split second you’re like, “Ugh, how obnoxious.” But after that split second you’re probably thinking, “Wow this is awesome, it’s the best thing ever.” Don’t be jealous.

Anyway. Last week, I went to the Apple store to see if they could get my iPod nano fixed, because the home button on it wasn’t working. I’ve been putting my entire library on shuffle for a while now, because I’ve been sick of all the music I listen to and putting 2000 songs on shuffle lessens the pain a little. I discovered that you can set the home button to skip songs when you double click on it and have been abusing the poor button, so last Wednesday it just got stuck and refused to pop back up.

Writing 2010 still feels weird

It is cold lately. Snowing for the third time this winter, it’s a total record. I found a mug that’s big enough to be a soup bowl and I’ve been drinking gallons and gallons of tea.

Another thing of awesome I found is my old (old, old) iPod. This is my favorite generation if iPods and I’m sad Apple progressively made the iPod uglier and uglier, with an interface more and more cumbersome to use. (I would love for the split-screenness of the main menu to disappear forever, thanks.)

And lol, here’s a playlist I made from about four years ago:

  • Frou Frou – Breathe In

  • Kate Havnevik – Unlike Me (acappella)
  • Kelly Clarkson – Since You’ve Been Gone (acapella)
  • Gwen Stefani – Wind it Up (feat. Pharrell)
  • Fort Minor – Where’d You Go?
  • Jose Gonzalez – Heartbeats
  • Imogen Heap – Clear the Area
  • Imogen Heap – The Walk
  • Imogen Heap – Just For Now (acapella live) <- one of the best songs/renditions of a song ever
  • Oh, pre-Asian pop me.

    Speaking of old iPods, 2009 was definitely the year I bought a shit ton of Apple :\ I never planned to be a huge Mac person and I still don’t have the extreme fervor for Apple that most Mac people seem to have, but I just have a lot of that damn macintosh.

    In my defense, that old iPod doesn’t really work that well anymore, neither does the video iPod. My phone is just a phone that happens to be not-a-Blackberry and now that I’ve had it for four months, I think I can safely say that I don’t really need an iPhone or love it as much as most iPhone users seem to do. I do love my iMac though :D And that wireless keyboard!
