I love summer, I just wish it loved me back

On withdrawal/being a glutton for punishment.

I'm getting sick of the crazy mood swings, constant narcolepsy/simultaneous jitters brought on by my allergy meds, so I'm on a self-imposed week-long detox but it's already off to a rocky strat.

The dull ache started in my jaw, and it's moving its way up to my temples. I'm not nauseous yet, but it's only a matter of time.

In other news, I'm still tooling around with the Zune. Beyond my first and second impressions, I've decided that I really like the player, but I'm still not used to the interface.

I've owned an iPod for ~7 years, so it's pretty ingrained that the button on top of the wheel takes me back to the menu, not the case with the Zune, instead it ups the volume - not cool.

+ the video quality is amazing. I've watched a total of one video on my 5th gen iPod, it's just not really practical for how I use my iPod. I've watched the preloaded clips on my Zune at least once a day, they're that striking. Right now, I'm actually ripping a couple of skate dvds to watch tomorrow on my commute to a staff meeting on the south side.

- no clock. Yeah, I've got a cell phone, and a watch, and my iPod is usually in my bag too, but I'd like to be able to see what time it is with a cursory glance at the screen. Not cool Microsoft.

It seems to me that if you pay that much money for something, you shouldn't have to pull out a cell phone to see what time it is.

I hope your detox goes easy for you and that you start feeling better!
