I bought a new iPod

So, after 5 years of hard use my venerable old 40-gig 4th-gen iPod finally went teats up (in the Canadian rockies, on vacation… great timing). It was the best music player I ever owned, and there have been many (anyone wanna buy a gently used minidisc player?). Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the iPod let me haul around a sizeable chunk of my music collection and it looked good doing it. With an iTrip it also became a portable radio station – which came in pretty handy on several vacations. But it started stuttering and hanging up on me (kinda like an old girlfriend), requiring a sharp rap to bring it back to its senses (also much like, oh, never mind…) But I digress. The 4-G has been retired in favor of a new 160-gig iPod Classic – which will haul around my entire music collection and then some. Now THAT’S cool.

With kitchen-applied gravy the crispy breading gets all soggy before you’re half done. I prefer to be in control of the gravy delivery process and thus enjoy my crispy breading right to the end.
