My iPod, she’s a die

Posted on: Thursday, May 14, 2009

Mood: Feh and meh
Music: Wu Tang Clan-Tearz

I’ve had one of these for a few years now.

What a gyp! Mine didn't come with those orange lines or dimensions.

My ex bought it for me for my birthday in 2005.  Since then, we’ve had a lot of laughs, sang songs, shed some tears, survived a few drops on the floor, and endured four trips back to to Apple store “genius bar” for replacements.  Well, my replacement program ran out a while ago and I have been patching mine up since then.

Yesterday, it stopped holding a charge.  I know there are batteries for sale and I could easily replace them, but…I don’t want to really.  The hard drive had been sketchy for a long time (seems like a design issue) and I kind of want something new.  I don’t really have the money, but I use my iPod every single day for hours and hours.  Without it, my life is meaningless.  MEANINGLESS!!!!  K, not really, but it’s important to my well-being.  Also, my stupid, nice Shure headphones that cost the hundred dollars are messed up…like only one ear is working.  So, in conclusion, my sweet personal urban sound system is broken and needs to be upgraded.  Would you like to buy me a new one?

Don’t have one of my own yet, but just replaced my nephew’s for his graduation…

Hopefully it’s not the headphones it’s the jack in the iPod?

Bought my sons each a set of nice Sony Sapphire’s “back in the day”…both lost of course…not sure my old ears were up to their response but it would be nice to find out some century!



You should get one! I love mine but I have a lot of time to listen to music on the bus or driving to work. Yes, it’s for sure the headphones. Stranded electrical wire gets brittle after a lot use. I used mine all the time and that’s what happened. I could repair them, but I’m not really sure it would be worth it.

an introduction

Hi, I'm Anna and I love cheese!

This blog is a chronicle of my life and a catalog of happy ephemera. The About page has a little bit more information, but, remember, none of this is really's just a supplement, a thumbnail sketch, a mostly anonymous Intarwebs placeholder. I'm way better/less wordy in person. :-)

Oh, and if I wrote something about you and you thought it was mean or hurtful, I'm sorry. It's how I felt at the time, but probably isn't how I feel now. Chances are, I love you and I think you're awesome.
