Random Silliness

When you connect an iDevice to your iTunes account, you have to give it a name.  Well, my iPod has always been called "[Miss Dashwood]'s iPod" on my iTunes account, but today I decided to rename it. I've heard of people calling their iPods "Titanic", so that the pop-up message says "syncing Titanic".  I always thought that was a little morbid, but a much funnier idea occurred to me today.

My iPod is now called "Sir Percy Blakeney," and my little pop-up message now tells me that iTunes is "syncing Sir Percy Blakeney."

Yes, I am far too easily amused, what?

"Sink me!" That is so SO funny!!! :D
The syncing Titanic is cute but Sir Percy Blakeney wins the day! And how much fun to have an iPod named Sir Percy! :)

Aha yes! I've done this! Great minds think alike, eh? ;) I admit I'm one of those who has called their iPod 'The Titanic', but your version is much funnier! Sink me, indeed :')

Lauren,
Hooray, a fellow Pimpernel fan! (I assume you must be, if you were amused by this.) How lovely to meet another of the League!

Miss Laurie,
It would be even funnier if, after purchasing a new song, iTunes came up with a little box that said "Sync me." :)

Abby,
Haha, and here I was afraid that nobody would "get it". What was I thinking?? Of course y'all would get it--great minds do indeed think alike! So today I synchronized my iPod three times... even though it only needed to be done once... simply because I got such a laugh each time. :P

I must be far too easily amused too, because I was laughing so much when I read that. 'Sink me' is now on my favorite list of expressions.

When it comes to TSP, I can be very easily amused, indeed. :) And I love your new iPod name. Must remember that for later...

My personal happy today was my homemade "literary ornaments"...pics coming soon on my blog. Seeing "We seek him here, we seek him there..." and "In vain have I struggled"...and "It is a far, far better thing I do..." on my Christmas tree...makes me so happy. :) I've been staring at my tree all night giggling. Especially since I made enough for *three* TSP ornaments. Oops. :)

Yes, indeed! I do love The Scarlet Pimpernel, both the book and the movie! :)

I guess we're all easily amused. ;-) I almost missed the punchline though. ha But when I saw it, hahahaha...

I think it is good to be easily amused!!! I was once told i was, but the person that told me that wasn't paying me a compliment! =)
But I'm proud of it anyway.
