Always the Last to Know.
I'm the sort of person that would probably be a total embarrassment to my teenage kids. If I had any.
I have NO idea what music is big - anywhere - now. I bought my first CD player about a decade after everyone else. Computery things scare me. I started blogging years after everyone else. And I'm concerned that if I get an IPod, I won't have a clue how to put music onto it. (Hint: I want an IPod, if anyone's feeling generous, what with my birthday coming up and everything....)
Anyway, my latest 'discovery' (as I said, I come to everything later than most people) is downloading from the internet. It is SO MUCH FUN!
Having borrowed Seasons 1 of Desperate Housewives and Lost and being TOTALLY addicted to both, the idea of waiting around for them to appear on DVD was just too much. SO, I bravely ventured into the world of downloading. I've got as far as Episode 20 of Season 2 of Desperate Housewives (HOW fucking good is this series?) and am looking for episode 21 at the moment. I'm sure it'll appear in a few days time. And I'm now downloading the first 6 episodes of Season 2 Lost.
So, are there any other great discoveries, like downloading and IPods, from the last decade that I may have missed out on?
***************** DAYS UPDATE ******************
Today was fun! I met up with one of my favourite students, ate Mexican for lunch, saw 'Libertine' (Johnny Depp - 'swoon'), hit a happy hour in a British pub, went to a Chinese restaurant for more drinking and food, got joined by one of my favourite Japanese receptionists, drank more, went for a quick hour of karaoke (with nomihodai of course)... and got the last train home. A LOT of fun! Of course, the fact they BOTH have a fantastic level of English made it even more fun.
Two more days of Golden Week left now.
