Sometimes I enjoy technology

Sorry to be offline for such a long time. The beginning of the new term — for both me and Zak — has been amazingly animated. Lots to do, in other words. But here I am, happy like an iguana in the sun, because I have a new toy.

Today we got an iTrip, a wireless FM transmitter for the iPod. What this means is now I have personal radio in my car. Perfect for Morning (One Fine, Broken or otherwise), Afternoon Delight, Late in the Evening, After Midnight, on Rainy Days and Mondays; on Manic Monday, Ruby Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Afternoon, Funky Friday, Saturday in the Park and Saturday Night, and Gloomy Sunday; in the Early Morning Rain, after A Hard Day's Night, and on A Million Vacations!

It works in Alberta, America, Africa, Asia at Odd Hours, All Along the Watchtower, At the Hundredth Meridian. And Europa. And it's controlled from the Driver's Seat. Now I've got a Ticket to Ride! Who said I Don't Like Mondays? Now I'm in Love with My Car!

OK, ok. I'll stop. It's the medication, probably.

I know I've promised to publish notes from my voyage to Newfoundland (which rhymes with understand) but I haven't got around to it yet. Soon, soon. In the meantime, I think I have to go Drive My Car...
