Happy Day

Two packages arrived for me today: an Amazon shipment and that ball of yarn needed to finish my sweater. Yay! I bought a couple of cds from Amazon, which is kind of crazy considering that I have music that I bought a while ago and still haven't heard. I bought a couple of albums before my trip to Europe, figuring that it would be an excellent time to fall in love with new music. Except I barely listened to my ipod when I was over there. So, I have a few albums to listen to when the mood strikes me: Z, by My Morning Jacket, Oh Inverted World, by The Shins, the new Stereolab, Strangers Almanac, by Whiskeytown, and Garden Ruin by Calexico. Well, I've had an unfocussed listening to some of those. It's been a long time since I've been able to sit down and really listen to a new album. I used to read the New Yorker from cover to cover when it came in the mail, too. Sniff. So, today, my recording of Ralph Vaughan Williams' Sir John in Love arrived. It's not exactly easy to find, so when I saw it on Amazon, I knew I had to snap it up. I also bought a Neko Case album. That combination whould work wonders on my recommendations page. I like to think that my taste is unpredictable, but the people at Amazon and iTunes like to think differently. Unfortunately, iTunes keeps recommending that I purchase albums that I already own. No, I don't expect them to be psychics at Apple, but it's music that I bought from them.
I got a new cellphone. It's a camera phone. Naturally, it is silver and a flip-phone, very Star Trekky. Suppose it was time that I join the 21st Century. The ring tones are atrocious, so I went with a Bach derived one. I'd buy a new ringtone, except I can't preview them on my Mac. And the Bach isn't bad.
Today, I got a call from a prestigious summer stock company for whom I would dearly love to work. They offered me a position for this summer. Small problem: it was an unpaid internship. Maybe if I had a sugar daddy, I'd take it, but I can't afford to quit my job and go work there for nothing. They did admit that I am overqualified for the position. Better than underqualified, I guess, considering that I've been out of school for five years.
