The voices are getting louder…

Me:  “I want to listen to Janis Joplin!”

My all-knowing iPod:  “I don’t think that’s a good idea right now.”

Me:  “I don’t care.  Play Janis!”

My all-knowing iPod:  “No.  You are working with spreadsheets and are already in a bad mood, and I know you’ve been listening to Postal Service all morning.  Listening to Janis Joplin right now will make you feel like a helpless cog in the machine.  I refuse to play ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ one more time.  Ain’t happenin’.  And don’t ask for The Wall, either.  I know what’s good for you.”

Me:  “I WANT JANIS.”

My all-knowing and rather insufferable iPod:  “No.  You’re gonna take Grace Potter, and you’re gonna like it, dammit.”

Me:  ::humming along to ‘Ah, Mary‘:: Dammit.

  1. Some days, you just have to have some Janis.

  2. It serves you right that your iPod has rebelled. After listening to Sarah Lee Guthrie a couple of days ago, I can’t get her dad’s “City of New Orleans” out of my brain. Want me to hum a few bars?

  3. Wow. We must be connected in some way. I have been in a bad mood all day long. Vivaldi did nothing to get me out of it. I blame him.
