Although my gift for him is held somewhere in Etsy limbo as it is shipping from England, he went ahead and let me open mine. [Tangent: Daddy is totally photobombing in this picture.]
So...what's in the box? Hint: It's not Gwenyth's severed head. Give up? It was something that I know nothing about...but am eager to learn about...a record player. Jamie has several different turntables and crates of albums, so it is about time I contribute something to this musical relationship [Tangent: I'm tone deaf, play no instruments but I do have a pretty good iTunes catalog. That's about it.]. The new record player is a Crosley portable and apparently a quality brand for a novice such as myself. It has an iPod port and headphone jack and can play 3 different sizes of vinyl...and the best part...
[Tangent: I didn't know where to put the needle or what to do when the album came to an end. It was embarassing.] However, I am a quick study, and luckily I have the greatest fella ever and he supplied me with lots of music to give a spin.
|Loretta, Dolly, the Avetts, The Head and the Heart and some great 90's soundtrack action. A great starter pack!|
Apparently @mayorbyrne is a part-time fortune teller because what did I see as soon as I entered Goodwill today to buy a gift card [Tangent: Yes, I bought a goodwill gift card. What of it?] :
No I didn't buy it...I withheld. I guess for the record, I am not as hip as one would think. [Tangent: Maybe if it was half off day]. I can only hope that when the USPS gets their asses on the ball, and he gets his present that he loves it 1/100 as much as I love mine. In the meantime, I have some vintage Dolly to tend to.
