(I also realized how bad it was that I didn't really consider not getting a replacement.)
After working, a conference call, and techfee, I went to ODG to use a computer with two firewire ports to copy all of the songs from old ipod to new ipod. This turned out to be much easier than I anticipated.
By the time the process was complete, it was time to go to the Big Time for epidemiology happy Friday. After a couple hours, beer, and nachos, Carolyn and I decided to take a bus downtown to watch Mean Girls. We missed the intended showtime by fifteen minutes; so we killed a half hour in the relatively boring retail core. The movie was enjoyable and funny and of course featured a feel good message and the little girl from Party of Five. If you're looking for something kind of commercial and funny; go ahead and see it.
