I could tell you about how I got halfway to work yesterday and decided I didn’t feel well and I was going home to spend a lazy day resting. But I won’t. Instead I will present you with a hypothesis:
That listening to the iPod makes doing the dishes go faster.
I also spent a little (just a little) time yesterday sorting out my CD collection. No, not some kind of High Fidelity-type sorting out session. I was pondering the CDs I’ve been putting onto my iPod, pondering those that I never listen to, pondering the lack of shelf space in the CD part of the bookshelf, and pondering if I might find some CDs that I can ditch, sell, dump, donate, lose, or otherwise get rid of.
While there are quite a few I haven’t listened to in some time, there were less that I felt comfortable in getting rid of. I did find about a dozen, however, which is a good start. The question then becomes how I get rid of them. I’m not sure I’m willing to suffer the humiliation of a secondhand record shop rejecting them.
If I can’t summon up the courage for that, maybe I’ll look through the selection and send a couple of carefully targetted emails to possible grateful recipients.
