I've become an iblank. It was inevitable.

iblank: one who has an association with ithings.

ithings: things including but not limited to: itunes, ipod, iphone, imac, etc.

But it was not always thus. I used to use windows media player. But then came a series of events which led me to itunes. Apparently, I have been living in a graduate apartment complex for a whole year without realizing I had access to the music collections of my neighbors. I owe many thanks to "Weminuche National Forest" for his extensive collection of jazz and my subsequent discovery of Miles Davis. I have found Miles Davis to be very good homework music.

I did wonder how I managed to avoid discovering itunes until last autumn, and I realized the answer last week. I never owned an ipod. Since I never owned an ipod, I was never forced to download itunes in order to upload music to the ipod. Yet...I have succumbed. I finally quit resisting and bought an ipod shuffle, for the sole purpose of being able to listen to books on tape while I run. Sigh. I have become an iblank, and there is no going back.

Blank preceeds some sort of serendipitous epiphany with revelations on directions in life, insight into higher mathematics and why flat worms grow after being severly disected. could be tired.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
