This was a pretty bad week for on several fronts. My treasured Red Sox played horribly in just about all areas of the game, earning themselves some extra vacation time (and I thought I was Lazy). The Major League Baseball umpires missed numerous calls including three tags in the first Red Sox game (the Red Sox can't even blame the loss on this as it didn't matter too much). If were a Twins fan now, I'd still be upset at Joe Mauer's clear double that was called foul, which had a huge impact in the game.
Lastly, I bought my wife a
new refurbished 16GB iPod Touch as a surprise for her recent promotion to Commander. (I couldn't be more proud.) For our trip to Aruba, I loaded it up with her music and pitchers. She didn't end up using it too much since we always had other things to do. On the way home she showed the person next to her on the plane some of the pictures and turned it off as we took off to return home. It hasn't turned back on since. I've hard reset it and reinstalled iTunes numerous times as the support pages suggest. Finally, I took it to the Apple Store. The person there said they never saw anything like it and booked me to see a "genius." We'll see how that goes in a couple of hours...
