Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


The new phone

Totally rocks.

Really. Outstanding. Rockage.

It has an MP3 player on it. And, I got 50 free downloads if I acted before Dec. 31. So, I wasted lots of time today. But, I'm in love with my phone. It has a Walkman capability. And, if I push the little W button and shake it - it goes to the next song.

How effing cool is that? I mean, seriously? I'm so excited.

Now, the best part ... I'm going to join the local rec center and start *gasp* working out. *sigh* I was assisting Army of Dad in replacing my brake pads and I'm such a wuss. My arms got tired holding the flashlight and then I couldn't get the cap back on the Maglite when I replaced the batteries. That is how big a wuss I am. In high school, I could almost benchpress my weight. I was strong and now I'm a gigantic lard-ass wuss. Then, the other night, I was dancing ever so briefly, but my damn thighs were sore the next day. So, that was the final straw.

So, this Wednesday or Friday I'm going to the local rec center and joining up. I'm even going to spring for a personal training session or two to show me what to do and how to do it to maximize the weight loss and enhance my strength. I hope by this time next year, I'll be significantly smaller.

So, I'll be using my Walkman on the stairstepper, treadmill or whatever other torture device there is.

On my playlist that I got for free from (which is an indie site):
Tears for Fears - the entire album of Secret World (Mad World, Shout, Head Over Heels and more)
The Pixies - Wave of Mutilation; Monkey Gone to Heaven; Debaser; Here Comes Your Man

I'm going to have to add some current stuff, but this is a good start. I'm soooo very excited. I know ... simple pleasures. This is just not something I usually treat myself to, so I'm pumped up. I wanted an Ipod, but - honestly - this is probably even better.

    what no Nine Inch Nails? I am shocked, as they were putting out raunchy back in the 80's, and to me that's a great combination.
    Which appears to be styles you like.
    May I also recommend Disturbed.

    I have the same phone, only in a mild pink color. I love it! I've had it for about six months. I don't use it for music, though, just for phone calls. I have an iPod loaded with over 5,000 songs, I don't need my phone to play music.

    Is that Freedy Johnston song a cover of the old 80s classic from XTC???
