...I DIDN'T have enough going on right now.

My first-generation iPod Shuffle stopped working tonight. I originally got the dreaded 1418 error when I tried to sync, but after downloading and installing the restore utility they offer, iTunes was no longer recognizing it at all. It's assuredly neither the adaptor nor the latest revision of the iTunes software (which I had just installed prior to this, so I wondered for a minute), because [livejournal.com profile] gridlore's Shuffle (the same model) still appears right away.

So now I get to haul my ass out of bed first thing in the morning, schlep over to the mall, and have the lovely folks at the Genius Bar tell me "yep, it's broken." And probably try to sell me the new model (actually $10 less than what [livejournal.com profile] jarlsberg71 paid when he wintergifted me with this in '05, for twice the storage space), which, of course, I can't afford this weekend for damn sure, and probably not for a while yet.

Okay...

...my Shuffle appears to be an even bigger Depeche Mode fan than I am.

Of the 130 songs currently in the beast, 10 are DM tracks. Not all that big a surprise, as I told it to pick higher-rated songs more often, and they're all 4 or 5 stars.

In the hour and change I spent listening to it on the way home, I heard five of them.

Twice, I got songs back-to-back.

Methinks the randomizer needs a little work. ;-)

Just got a call from OfficeTeam; I start a new assignment at 1pm. (They wanted me at 11, but it was going to take me 90+ minutes to get there, so my rep called to get me a little breathing room.) Running off to the bus stop now so I can get something to eat on the way.

And yes, [livejournal.com profile] jarlsberg71, I'm Shuffling. ;-)
