Mom was determined last night to get her IPod working again. She hasn't used it in years and got a wild hair at 8pm last night to make it happen. Here is what she "Made Happen":
- Set up an extra ITunes account - Check
- Delete all previously loaded music from IPod - Check - Technically, I helped with this one. See when it said something like - "Are you sure you want to synch cause it's going to wipe out all your tunes?" - She asked me what she should do. Since "OK" was an option, I said okay. Looking back, I see perhaps "Cancel" would have been another way to go.
- Buy a new song and have it eaten by the great beyond - Check, Check
I'm sure the weekend will be spent with her trying to find her "Dim All the Lights" and Katy Perry. Yes, she is a dancing queen - well, in theory. I sure hope she doesn't think I'm going to be scooped up and made to boogie with her. I'm more of a slow dancer.
Have a great weekend friends! What do you have planned?
Fin, that sounds like great advice! My mom has an IPod that she got last year and has used maybe twice. She switched computers and didn't know what to do about the songs.....she still hasn't done anything. I think I'll tell her to delete everything and watch her go crazy!!! We have nothing planned here because it's cold as usual. Mom seems to be allergic to cold weather or something. We hope you and your humans have a great weekend!! Lots of love, Holly and momReplyDelete
My human, the former-and-sometimes-still music journalist does NOT own an iPod at all! In fact, she still has CDs - hundreds of 'em. Realistically, if we listen to any music this weekend, it will no doubt be on YouTube.ReplyDelete
Youse guys don't know how modern you are. Our mom and dad have iPods they don't use, and CDs they don't play. But they both have those tape cassettte things, worse yet dad has something he refers to as 8 Track cartridges but nothing to play them on. Mom and dad also both have Frisbees with a hole in the center that make music on a round table that turns around. Mom has a lot of CDs with the same pictures that are on the Frisbee package covers. Now they pretty much only listen to Sirius and XM radio. None of us will dance with them Fin cuz we're not real good with the biped thing 'cept to counter surf.ReplyDelete
Fin, our Mommy says Apple is the Evil Spawn of Satan so we can't offer any advice. All her music is on a dedicated hard drive and let us tell you, she listens to some strange stuff.ReplyDelete
We are gonna watch Mommy perch on a ladder and change wall colors this weekend, and prolly use words your Mom is QUITE familiar with! daddy was a sailor and we think he taught her.
your Mom is just too cool!!!ReplyDelete
She "kissed a kitty and she LIKED it!!"
that darn 'synch' option, yeh, mom knows it ALL to well. it dissapeared all her songs. she said oh well- cuz she doesnt use it much. but she still said technology is , hm, some word we arent quite sure what it was.ReplyDelete
one good way to avoid becoming the dancing partner is to claim a stubbed paw so only a slow dance would be possible.
what are we doing this weekend? hm. napping, eating, wild kingdom chase, sleep, nap, eat, OH and getting spoiled with bean loves !!!
Fin, My mom is a dancing queen too, and she met my dad on the dance floor : )ReplyDelete
PS : Fin, I think I more interested about your kicker, Is That one is good ? Is it purrfect for Bunny Kick ? I love bunny kick : )
I think "syncing" will go down in history as the word that brought down western civilisation. I've got an iPod touch and touching it is the one thing guarranteed to cock everything up. And it's covered in paw prints? Hmmmm!ReplyDelete
Avoiding the kitten. That's what I'm doing. Maybe some naps too.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by recently. The photo is a beauty. Our gang got a bunch of catnip pillows for Christmas:)ReplyDelete
Oh Fin, you are very funny. WE want videos of you being scooped up and dancing with the Mom. That has to be hysterical. Good for your Mom to do the dancing though. Hope you have a super duper week end.ReplyDelete
My mom still lives in the dark ages and doesn't have one of those iPod thingeys...she says she'd like to get one but that would mean trying to figure out how it works...electronics is not her forte.ReplyDelete
We hope your mom finds her songs so that foul mouth stops!
We think we'd pay money to see a video of your mom dancing with you, Fin. :-DReplyDelete
Our mom doesn't have an iPod either (also in the dark ages!) -- not even a cell phone!
We're probably going to spend the weekend watching her work herself up into a frenzy of worry and panic re: Annie's litter box output...or lack thereof.
Your Mom sounds like my Mom, Fin! Would you care to slow dance?ReplyDelete
Does she smooch you while your are dancing together?ReplyDelete
Oh Fin, that same thing almost happened to my mom but I got suspicous and when the evil Apple people asked her if she wanted to "sync"...I meowed NO!ReplyDelete
Daddy ended up saving the day by downloading some 3rd party software that allowed her to save her music...most of which she uploaded from her very own CD's. GRRRR!
Our mum uses her foul mouth a lot when she does things like that!ReplyDelete
As kitties who are frequently forced to dance with our mum, we hope you find a way to lose the ipod, Finny.ReplyDelete
Ut oh....it sounds like you have a rough weekend ahead of you.ReplyDelete
The Florida Furkids and Angel Sniffie
pee ess - our Mom likes that music too! Odd......
Oh dear... why are iPods always so complicated?ReplyDelete
We are going to our vacation place and Meredith Ann always comes with us.ReplyDelete
My Mommy has stories on hers and we's listens to them in the big box that moves when we goes on trips. Me don't know how she gets them there, maybe me should investigate....ReplyDelete
Oh how frustrating! Best keep those ears covered fur sure!!!ReplyDelete
OOOOH dear Fin.
We understand why your Mom said those words.
We have never lost our information on apple, but a couple of years ago Dad gave her an iPod for a present, and she didn't know you had to have an iTunes acct, so she couldn't get it to work and she was saying some bad things on Christmas morning. She learned about iTunes and the rest of it was fine...but NO where in the one page instructions did it say you have to have an acct with iTune....*sigh*
Technology does *uck!
Oh something sounds very familiar here. SS, you have done that before, haven't you?ReplyDelete
Good luck with that iPod. We have 2 around the house. One is still in its original box. We don't know where either of them is.
My Mom is way-behind-the-curve my friend. She is one of the few humans who doesn't own an iPOd, but we still do plenty of dancing, it's an old fashioned thing called a 'radio' but I'm 'little' so Mom holds me in one hand and we dance-she 'sings' too but that's another story! Happy weekend dear FIn! as always: Good luck with the humans!ReplyDelete
You're lucky, Fin. Our mom said something about getting rid of bugs? And scratching too much? We would try to flee, but the apartment is too small. Maybe under the bed. Afterwards, maybe some snuggle time. It's cold here in central Florida. Our mom likes to dance too, but she has given up trying to get us to dance with her. Heehee!ReplyDelete
Oh Fin! I would love to see you and your mom dancing together.ReplyDelete
Thank you for stopping by my blog :-)
Our mom's going to get to know her Kindle better.ReplyDelete
Boogie on down, Fin!ReplyDelete
Fin, I wanted to let you know I am spreading the word about your beautiful book. I bought it, read it and have a review with links to purchase the book and subscribe to the blog. Thanks for writting such an insightful book for all of us humans. Hope your having a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Why is it that humans always seem to start in with the foul mouth when dealing with electronics? MOLReplyDelete
...the only kind of Pod around our place is our Hepper Pod...Teri's clueless when it comes to electronics...ReplyDelete
