That horrible day

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

Last year today, the horrible fire happened and wiped out all our physical belongings and memories. At 3PM M. reminded me that it was the hour when it happened, I thought I was going to break down. I cried a little. It seems that everything is okay now, but deep down the trauma still resides. And that explains why all of a sudden I cried. We did go on with our lives since the fire, but the memory of it will never go away. It was such a horrible experience, but it made us a different person. It made us realize what really is important in our lives and how much we cherish our good friends and families. I don’t feel sad right now but as I am typing, tears come down. That’s what has left behind from the trauma.

Wow, the last time I blogged here was on February 2nd. Where have I been?

Cult of iPod

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

Last July I talked about how much I love my iPods and I bragged about the number of iPods I have owned over the years. Now an update on the bragging. The 4th photo iPod (#4) died in January, and it turned out that they mailed the repaired iPod(in fact they said there was nothing wrong with it, which was baffling) to some guy in Missouri.

After weeks and weeks of checking they sent me a brand new 60GB video iPod (#5). I decided that I had to get rid of it asap before the rumored full screen video iPod comes out. And so I did.

In the meantime, I got a black 60GB video iPod (#6) at the office. So what do I need now? I got a 2GB nano (#7), and it’s yummy. Not that anyone would care about all this. But I am amazed by the fact that I have owned SEVEN iPods.
