Can't remember where I saw this, but the latest use of an iPod is the equivalent to the old 8 Ball - put your iPod on shuffle and get the answer to life's questions.

I asked mine 20 questions and here are the honest responses (I did this with my roommate so there was no cheating):

1. What is my day going to be like? "Ironic" Alanis Morissette

18. What's been my greatest obstacle? "Standing" Patty Griffin
19. If I could change one thing about my life, what would it be? "Easy" Nik Kershaw
20. What is my greatest dream? "Alive Again" Ty Taylor


  1. i didn't know that standing was such a challenge. interesting. but the lovelife/angel thing, yeah, i knew that.

  2. Your plight is very universal. I think "The Rockafeller Skank" would make everyone happy and the "Theme from the Valley of the Dolls" is probably one big, collective regret of the American people.

  3. I think you got this "ipod Magic 8 Ball" from me, silly.
