Da nah, da nah, da nah, da nah nunna nah...

Sickness did not strike Abe & I down for good. Although we were both almost out for the count for a while. Abe was in bed for about 4-5 days straight. I just had one rough night and then a slow and steady recovery (and snotty nose - except I can't mention that here because of the no fluids rule). (However, I think it's a another rule that anything goes within parentheses. So let's here it for punctuated fluid frenzies!)

Continuing the blog time travel, remember the time I got an ipod? It arrived in November. I got it out of its package in December. And in February I finally loaded my music and some podcasts onto it. And I have to say I really enjoy walking to the bus stop with my own soundtrack. When I see other people I often smile because I think it's funny that I have these voices and melodies playing in my head and they have no idea.

Sure, I may be a conservative brown-haired girl in dress pants and a long black coat, but inside I'm rocking out to Cake's Going the Distance.

I was just thinking it had been awhile since you posted. Good thing you got the sickness out of your system before the big trip. Both my kids have colds. They ALWAYS get sick before vacation or during.

Yeah for the IPod! Key is such a rewarding bank, right?

I remember seeing so many students on campus with ear buds and who knows what going on inside their heads. I wondered if we have turned into a society that can't be by ourselves with ourselves. But I know that's not you, so I guess you're explaining the phenomenon to me. And yes I know I spelled that wrong! :) I think.

Good point, Dawn. I used to (and often still) think the same thing. It's very different to have music as ambient sound and music pumped directly into your ears. In fact, the other day I was walking with my ipod on and thought I heard geese honking and was so confused - is that coming from my music? did I step on something? where are these geese? I'm sure there are so many things I miss out on when I choose to limit my sound to little white ear buds.

I hope I still often make the decision to turn them off.
