More Green.

I knew there was something else I wanted to say about "green." Check out my Mother's Day gift.
It's a GREEN mp3 player. Lime green to be exact, the kind I'm sure Gerrie will love. With speakers! I adore it. I never thought I would, but I do. I'm obsessed with podcasts. I download tons and tons from NPR all organized by subject matter so I can hear about art, movies, books, pop culture and food and avoid all foreign policy. Plus, I listen religiously to Jay and Jack's LOST podcast. And I'm a gigantic fan of the new NPR show "Fair Game." It's like The Daily Show on radio and hosted by a smart funny woman. Need I say more? So, now I can listen to podcasts in my studio. Before I'd get lost if there was nothing good on the radio and now I have complete control.

Apparently, it also plays video. I wonder if I can download episodes of Brothers and Sisters. I think I'd like that show. I watched about 30 minutes of the finale last week. If someone had told me it was full of actors from all my old favorite shows I would have tuned in for sure: Ally McBeal, Alias, West Wing, Everwood?! Plus, throw in a gay member of the clergy, I'm hooked.

I love Brothers and Sisters. It is kinda goofy, but I love all the actors and their roles - especially Rob Lowe!

I want that MP3 player - how cool is that! Debra Roby has a lime green super duper phone thing tha does every thing - I covet that also!

I love Brothers and Sisters. Rob Lowe, gay clergy and all.

I'll have to listen to Fair Game. It sounds like my kind of show.

Wow, thanks for mentioning Fair Game - I checked it out this morning and loved it. Sort of a combination of Fresh Air and the Daily Show.

I think my very favorite podcast is CraftSanity. Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood is a journalist who loves to craft and she does long, in-depth interviews with all kinds of artists and crafters. Great stuff!
