On a recent weekly trip to the library, my husband was genius enough to take a gander at the cds. There sat the most beautiful (and somewhat rare) boxed set we could have ever dreamed of stumbling upon. He calmly (so as not to alert anyone, of course, of the major score he just landed) but quickly ran over to check it out. We smugly grinned like the felines who ate the canary as we walked out of the library. That spurred our newest addiction....adding to the iTunes library for FREE! Surely, we didn't invent this concept but what a revelation! The next trip was like a frantic Easter egg hunt....who would find the next gem? Sadly, we could only check out ten at a time per person but the good news is that we would be visiting the library more. As we should.
This week's treasure hunt revealed my personal Hope Diamond. Years ago I unloaded my vinyl collection (I know, I know....it pains me to even speak of it) and one of the most cherished albums in my possession was let go. Until yesterday. There it sat....as if quietly mocking me. Here I am! Your good karma has finally added up enough to allow you to have me again. (Yes people. It means that much to me)
Lord knows I've searched and searched. And there it was. Waiting for me.
So, the iTunes library grows and grows thanks to my wonderful public library here in potato land. My faith is once again restored in the goodness of the Universe. And, most importantly, Morrissey blares from my iPod on an almost hourly basis.
(You can purchase this from Amazon but, of course, there's no thrill in that. Oh, and you can watch performances of the songs from it on YouTube too...which does hold a thrill. Do I really need to explain this to you? No.)
