Zen and the art of iPod maintenance.

Back hanging out with my buddy Jeff in KL for a few days, until the 10th, when I fly back to Delhi. We met up with Way Cheng, her bf Mikael, and Seow Yee (a cool friend of theirs and Jeff’s) for a fantastic dinner at Bijan, then went over to Frangipani for a few drinks. I got in quite late and haven’t slept much, but otherwise am feeling fine.

During the day yesterday, something happened that would have made me crazy upset a few months back. I had my iPod plugged into Jeff’s computer and ran an update to it that caused it to reset, losing all 1700 plus songs on the device.  I have none of those songs on any sort of backup here in Asia, so they are gone. A few months ago I would have freaked out, but I really feel ok about it. I kept searching myself for some wave of anger or grief or disappointment, but none came my way. Big deal. And so what? Here is an opportunity to put some new music on my iPod and experience something other than my previous travel soundtrack.
