New MP3 player

A couple weeks ago some punk relieved me of my iPod after noticing that my car was unlocked on my driveway. This sucked, especially because it happened during NPR's Pledge Week. But it did mean that it was finally time for me to get an MP3 player that doesn't suck. So my wonderful husband got me a new MP3 players for Mothers Day. Yay! I'd been doing some research and thought about a few different ones, but we went to Best Buy tonight and the Sony Walkman seemed to have the nicest UI. I'm sure it will take me some time to get it up and running, but I will surely be reporting on my experience. Stay tuned...

Top 5 Fridays, late because I'm a slacker

Top 5 Rules for the bike ride Adam and I did on Saturday:

5) It's OK if we don't finish. (we did)

4) No rushing -- especially on hills.

3) It's OK if we don't finish.
