With heartfelt thanks and a thousand blessings to Reg, who kindly bestowed on me a surprise early birthday present. No, not the kid in the Gunners tshirt - look closer. Yep, an Ipod Shuffle!
And me, the IT ignoramus, programmed the thing with 120 songs all by myself. Pure genius.
So now I can bop along to my favourite tunes and not have to speak to anyone on public transportation.
I get the feeling that pretty soon, I'll be wearing an expression of serene Buddha-ness like this little guy. But I draw the line at also wearing the one-piece Guns & Roses romper suit. The world just ain't ready for that one.
