So I bought 69 Love Songs yesterday, but got home and discovered that CD2 didn't play -- wouldn't play at all on my Powerbook, and skipped unlistenably on other CD players. Took it back to HMV today expecting a simple exchange, to find that they didn't have any more in stock, but they'd be able to order it in within two weeks. TWO WEEKS! I only bought it from HMV in the first place because I didn't mind paying a little over the odds just to get it NOW NOW NOW. Decided it must be possible to get it in less time than 2 weeks, so I got a refund and went to look in Fopp. They didn't have it either, but can order it in within ... yeah, you guessed it, 2 weeks. Oh well. They've said they'll let me know when it comes in, which is nice. In the meantime, I'm kicking myself because I didn't rip CD1 and CD3 while I actually had my grubby little mitts on the album ... so I have to wait another TWO WEEKS before I can listen to any of it again. Grr.

On the plus side, though: I have lovely new friends on my friends list; I have other CDs on order which should turn up today or tomorrow; I have a huge salad Niçoise from M&S for lunch; and I have special posh chocolates from my Secret Admirer for dessert. Perhaps I am easily pleased ... but then I've never understood why people always say this like it's a bad thing. Hurrah, I say, hurrah for being easily pleased, and hurrah for beautiful people and good music and nice food!
