pod people


I am late bloomer. Just this Christmas did I finally join the rest of the world and purchase an ipod. I was a tad intimidated with the whole thing. All that music, the circle button, and looking hip with the white earphones in the ears. Could I handle that?!?!
Answer: Yes.
I primarily use it for working out. Before I would just bring along my earphones and plug it in to the elliptical machine and watch TV. I had a walkman but figured that I would look old fashioned if I lugged that thing around. Post cardio was done to the over head music and the occasional grunt from a few of the other gym participants.
Now, after cardio I blair my hearts desires. It is fabulous! What I want to know is, is how everyone else keeps from breaking out in song?! It is a huge challenge for me. I want every one to know that "I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding." To not start singing along is rough.
I feel a little sneaky. My fellow gym goers could be thinking I am listening to some intense rocker song, and little do they know that Billy Joel's "For the Longest Time" is helping me pump up.
This gets me thinking, what are the "suit case arm" gym rats listening to? Is Mr. Biceps jammin to Celine Dion? What ever it is, I would LOVE to see him sing out a few notes. Spice my morning up a bit.
I love my ipod.

Anna You are hilarious! I am even worse. I still don't own an ipod. Shawn bought me one, but I ended up taking it back, because of the $. I know I am a dummy, because now I really do want one.
Oh and I dig your tunes!

Confession: sometimes, when I work out...

Rockapella.

Ha! I love it! Mostly because I think the same thing. I only have great songs on my workout playlist so it's like every 3 minutes or so I have to fight the urge to start singing along. :) It was so good to see you the other night. I'm so glad we're blogger friends so we can keep in touch and hang out more often. :)

Anna! You are so pretty! I am so glad that you blog. I don't do it that often but it is so fun to see how everyone is doing! I still don't have an ipod so you are one step ahead of me:) You made me want to jump on the wagon of ipod users though:)

I've been wanting an ipod for a while now, so you're way ahead of me! I love reading your posts, they make me laugh. I was wondering if I could have your email address to discuss some important matters. If you'll email me at bksnell@yahoo.com and just give me a shout out, then I'll have yours. If that's okay!

Hey Anna :) I love my IPOD too. It is wonderful. I love Leona Lewis by the way. Good luck with school.
