I'll admit, More Than You Think You Are has been a stable on my Ipod since i bought it really... fantastic album

Think i'll wait until you get it, so you can let me know if it's worth it or not lol

OK, got the album and have listened to the whole thing. On the whole, a good album but not as good as "Mad Season" or "More Than You Think You Are." "North" has a slightly more "dance club-ish" sound to it. My favorite songs are Parade, English Town and Sleeping at the Wheel, which are, I think, more introspective & melodic. Put Your Hands Up and Our Song are VERY catchy, but a bit too dance-club style--but I will admit that Our Song is very catchy; it might be one of those songs I like better after hearing it a few more times. Overall, a good album at least three songs are going straight to my MP3 player, but it's still not my favorite MB20 album to date.

My two cents.

Went with a friend to a different farmers' market this morning. I bought some eggs and bell peppers, but my favorite purchase was three bunches of sunflowers. It was only $10 and I think it's impossible to look at sunflowers and not feel cheerful.

A few bags of weekend groceries so I could whip up some dinner this evening. I was running low on some things.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today I got my new exercise bike. It is exactly the same as my old one, actually, but my old one had started creaking, squeaking, and wobbling, and seeing as I work out at 6 in the morning it was waking my roommates, so I figured it was time to move on. According to reviews, most bikes in its price range last about a year. Mine lasted almost three, and that's with me riding it between 1 and 3 hours a day 4 to 6 days a week over most of that three year period. I figure that points to fairly good quality for the price. The list price is $250, but Amazon sells it for $135, plus I get free shipping.



I also bought a bag of chocolate covered pretzels, because, you know, I may workout like a mother-fucker, but I'm keepin' it real.

I got some takeout lunch earlier today along with a new battery for my digital camera. I know. Exciting.

Naw, I'm just addicted! It's dorky but I'm totally excited to work out tomorrow on my new bike, even though it's the same model as the old one!
