Another IPod Challenge .. whee!/There Goes My Baby

I love these silly challenges .. trying to decide if want to leave the house and get coffee or keep watching stuff on DVR and burn CDs (got 5 CD grab bags @ Bull Moose (10 CDs each) for .99c/each) .. Yay!

Good stuff ... Guns N Roses-Appetite for Destruction, Sinead O'Connor - I do not want what I haven't got; U2-October; Tina Turner-Greatest Hits ..

Heres the facebook thing (from Kayt Sukel - super mom and writer) ...
