A Channukah Miracle for the Modern Man [Mar. 19th, 2010|07:44 pm]

So, as you know, I bring my iPod with me to work and listen to it all day while working, making for a Happy Kurt. Yesterday when I left work, my iPod had less than 1/4 charge on it, so I knew I would have to put it on the charger when I got home, or else it would die on me partway through work the next day. Of course, being me...I forgot to do so.

So, today at work, I kept glancing over at the battery meter on my iPod. Sure enough, by 3:00, it was down to its last sliver of power. Due to personal experience, I thought to myself, "Great. Only 10-15 minutes left, then I have to spend the last hour or so music-less." And yet, that last little red line of battery life never gave up. Until 4:30, when I was scheduled to leave (usually I leave at 5, but I had somewhere to go that closed at 5, so got permission to take a short lunch and leave early), the little MP3 player that could kept going. Finally, right as I was getting up to go, the music died. The last song it played for me, "Gift of Mortality" from the Bicentennial Man score.

And that, boys and girls, is why we celebrate the miracle every year on March 19th. And also, current music irony lol. Just sayin'.

You know, if you go back and look at my music for most of my LJ entries, you'll find it either fits nicely with the subject, or is ironically fitting. This is not an accident.
