I have bought myself an iPod, it is a second hand square one (3rd generation apparently) but it arrived today and I am charging it up now as I type this. I have also ordered an FM gadget which will mean that I can listen to it in the car, which I am looking forward to. There are a variety of radio programmes which I like but which are on while I am working, so I am downloading the podcasts and will listen to them while I drive to and from work.
It is quite exciting.
It is a bit sad that it is exciting, because I ought to think more important things are exciting. I do think other things are exciting too, but at the moment I have a new toy, and do find it exciting.
Having spent all day in a meeting talking about the new computer system for the libraries with two of the company guys, I think getting excited about an iPod is OK really.
I am also pretty excited about my dinner (which is steak).
It doesn't actually take a lot to get me excited.
The question is whether or not this means I am superficial or whether it means I have a great zest for life is a good one, and one to which I have no answer.
