    Goodness me, I’ve come over all nostalgic for some other country’s past. How peculiar. Pass the moonshine.

    “I rocked out, prim and proper-like, to Husker Du, Wilco, The Replacements, and the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Cats.”

    Congrats on the ipod, happy birthday to you, so glad you old timers can get accustom to the strange modern ways.

    Even a goody two shoes like Laura Ingalls would’ve neglected the peas after such a gift.

    *smiling, giggling and laughing*

    I just think that post made my day!

    By the way, is “Husker Du” a band somehow? That is norwegian and means “do you remember”

  12. Diana says:

    I’m sure Laura Ingalls will forgive you. Plus, it will make the plantin’ and churnin’ and carpet beatin’ go all the faster.

    I got 2 balloons for my birthday.
    1 full of macaroni and the other full of water. Maybe I should increase my kid’s allowances.

  14. actonbell says:

    Look out your window. See that green glow? That’s me! You got an Ipod! Cool. Beans. To heck with cell phones, that’s just a way to let other people pester you–but an IPod! Congrats and happy birthday:)

  15. citizen of the world says:

    Well, that’s great. I loved my iPOd. I lost my iPod. I’m very sad now.

  16. Claire says:

    “Don’t come showing me how your corn cob doll got scalped again…”
    and “rapscallions”
    Oh, how you make me lol!
    What darling sweetlings you have!

  17. Jamie says:

    Gawd bless the eye-pawed.

    Rock on.

  18. Theresa says:

    Happy Birthday! Half-pint? You one of them Little House on the Prarie fans? Hope that there sawker bawl grows inter some good crops. And ya’ll be carful about havin’ yer eye pawed, that might be downright dangerous. Specially if it’s got its claws out. 🙂

  19. pistols at dawn says:

    Fantastic. I laughed so hard my corn-cob pipe fell plumb out of my mouth and stained my apprentice smithy smock.

  20. chelle says:

    heheh Congratulations on the iPod … aren’t they grand?!?!

    We *just* got cell phones and I felt so amish previously.

  21. Steve says:

    Jest be cearful not to let Niblet take yer eye pawed to a ski meet. It may ne’re be of more use than the aforementioned shrew theretofore, therabouts.
