Pod World

I have...FINALLY...discovered the wonderful world of Podcasts. I had heard people speak of this world on many occasions, but I had never truly experienced it myself. I recently discovered that NPR.org has an extensive list of fantastic podcasts available to be devoured by my ipod. You can search by title or by subject. I know, I know, I am so behind the times. I get it. Remember, I just finished an entire semester of "Modern English Grammar." I'm way up on the grammar times. Which leads me to one of my most favorite findings this afternoon: A six minute weekly program from Minnesota public radio boasting to discuss all things grammar and the English language. It's called "Grammar Grater," and I think we are going to be really good friends. I am also subscribed to "Crash Course in Islam" because I feel like being able to understand things that I don't quite yet understand.

I'm serious. This might be one of the best things I have ever discovered on my own through many other people mentioning it to me as if I knew exactly what they were talking about. I only recently discovered that I could manually update my ipod. No more lost or triplicated music!

This is a good Christmas gift to myself. Free, too!

I'm not going to tell you exactly why, but sometimes, if you let things go and stop worrying about them (aka...money), they take care of themselves. SOMETIMES.

I think the sun'll come out tomorrow. Seriously.

Re: Money problems solved - I don't want to blow the surprise for people who you might not want to know yet, but I'm guessing this means you nailed the interview at Hooters!

I'm hilarious.

Anyway, podcast are indeed awesome, the only thing that's bad about them is there are SO many out there. There is no way to have enough time to hear them all.

I know! However, I have successfully listened to all the ones I downloaded yesterday except for this one about holiday music that I didn't know was going to be about holiday music. I am SO over holiday music. Send me some damn holiday cookies.

I hear that if I work long enough at hooters, they'll pay for my boob job...that will, most assuredly, break my back.

I currently have 57 podcasts waiting to be listened to. Some are even video podcasts. Have you gotten any of those yet?

You + boob job = ridiculous...ly awesome
You could have that surgery Dolly Parton had to put a 2nd spine in to keep you upright.
