When shuffle just works

iPod: Morning Dom, how about we start with a little Maiden.

Dom: Ok, but make it something chilled.

iPod: Infinite Dreams?

Dom: Perfect.

iPod: Time to step it up a gear: Sell Out by the Levellers good?

Dom: Great. I need to wake up a bit.

iPod: Let’s not get too perky, I fancy slowing it down with Radiohead and Bullet Proof… I Wish I Was.

Dom: Ooh, good choice for a nice chilled walk.

iPod: And now a little R.E.M. and Find The River?

Dom: Yes!

iPod: Hmm.. The streets are getting a little grungy. Fancy some Clash?

Dom: Rudie Can’t Fail would be great about now.

iPod: Can do!

And she does it again

Me: Mirto, let me tell you about my super awesome idea for a novel that I’m going to write for NaNoWriMo that is both super and awesome!

Mirto: Don’t tell me. I don’t want to know.

Me: But… But…

Mirto: If you tell me about it, you won’t be as excited about it, and then you’ll never finish it.

Me: . o 0 ( How is it that you have learned more about me in seven years than I managed to in 31 years? )
