Grrrrrrrr..........MP3 Players!!

 how are you all?? I hope you manage to get this alert!!  It was a shame when I finally did a pretty big entry and you don't get an alert for it :-(  But I don't wanna think that I'm just writing this coz you'll read it!!  I'd like to think I'm writing this for me and me alone, if you know what I mean....................

Enough babbling!!  So have you had a good weekend?  Don't ask me about mine!!  I planned to have a good productive weekend, but guess what??  That didn't happen!!  The plan started well, when I got home from work on Friday I'd found out that the postman had tried to post my MP3 player package, so I was excited about that !!  I should've known something would go wrong though!!

Got woken up a few times Saturday morning the funniest was about 2.45am.  It was my neighbour (above), they were making a lot of noise on the stair railing and then they were there for about 10/15 mins trying to get their key in the door.  It was really amusing even though it was really early!!  Anyway got up earlyish, and made my way up town.  I'm really broke at the mo (aren't we all I hear you cry ;-) and had to extend my overdraft which is a flippin' good job I did!!  Anyway decided whilst I was up town to look in the pound shop for a non-stick pan, coz I could do with another!!  Anyway picked up my package first and opened it there and then, I'm so impatient!!  It worried me coz they'd sent a mini-disc to load in the driver etc.........I saw problems ahead!!  Then I went into a few shops for a browse and found myself walking out of them all with nothing, apart from Sainsbugs and some food LOL............Even had a look in the new Oxfam bookshop but didn't find anything.  (Really shouldn't buy any more books - must resist!!)

Finally get home, load up the computer and put the disc in!!  Amazed that it fits and there is a space for mini disc's but guess what??  My computer doesn't read it!!  I can load the utilities in manually but not the driver and so I've got a problem coz I don't know how to get the music from my computer to the player.  Grrrrrrrrrr..............  Eventually gave up but was so frustrated, cold, annoyed and wanted to punch someone.

I went for a walk with my normal (boo) walkman and was so angry, on the way back after calming down a little I rung Trina and asked her to cheer me up.  She spent the majority of the call trying to sort out the problem with Wayne and he only suggested everything I'd tried already grrrrrrrrrr...............We did have a good chat about other stuff though!!

Rest of the day was just spent doing stuff that's not worth writing about!!  I made Chilli Con Carne for tea and finished it off this evening....yum.......

I have not done much towards my project but one thing I will mention about that is, at work the other day P was reading out what the chinese year thingy's mean.  I'm a snake and apparently I'm a funny person, but stingy with money (so true!!) and my ideal job is exactly what I'm trying to work towards.  It's great I've got Trina doing research for me.  I think she wanted to be involved bless her............Hopefully she'll come up with some good stuff for me to work with :-)

Last night I did manage to cheer myself up a little by visiting Paddy's site :-)  He's finally got the online shop working and there's a pic of the calendar he's done.  One sides for the blokes and the other is for the girlies and I must say that is GORGEOUS!!  But I would say that LOL.............Also he's talking about doing an online chat arrrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.........................I don't have anything to say but how cool is that :-)  must rack my brain to think of something LOL..........

Otherwise I've been cleaning, loading music onto the comp and trying to sort out my photobucket accounts.  I have 5 in total and trying to organise them so all sigs and stuff like that are in the one place and I don't have to search for them!!  So if your lookingat previous entries and the graphics are missing that's why ;-)  Also once it's done I can update the all about me bit.................

Well I reckon I've bored you enough..........Have a great week peeps!!

Take care xx

No i didn't get an alert and i've added you again to my alerts...I've found sometimes that fixes the no alerts problem...I seem to be getting alerts sent every 2nd entry i put in my journal <sigh>  NExt onto the mp3 player...What kind is it and what windows are you using...Most mp3 players if you're using windows XP then you don't need to instal drivers...With mine and mikeys mp3 players all i do is plug them into the usb port then i cancel the box that windows puts up...Then i open the folder my music is in and drag and drop it onto the E drive where the mp3 player is plugged into...Then the music copies itself onto the player...Is that too technical or easy enough to understand...If it's an i-pod type then you'll have to ask someone else as none of ours are sorry   Caff xxx

Hi Jennifer, What's wrong with being a Queen fan? I think they're great, and keep buying the books; they're great too. Thanks for writing your blog, nice to read. Malcolm.

I think alerts are messed up all over the town. its crazy!

I'm so poor too! i really wanna buy some clothes and a saw a pair or new shoes, but i can't. i have to save for when Adam comes. I'm telling you, it'll be a dream come true the day my overdraft and credit cards are paid off for good. i'll snip all my cards up then!

MP3 players can be a little tricky. i don't have one, but my brother does. he has me putting songs on it all the time for him and his friends, the cheek! lol! but its simple enough if you have the updated version of WMP cause all you do is select the songs you want and it synchronizes it all for you. Good luck with it though!
