Fried stereo and little sleep

Elise and I ran a few errands yesterday. We were listening to a Podcast on the iPod shuffle (very hard to do if you want to listen to a particular episode) when all of the sudden the tape adapter would fast forward and stop. It would play a few seconds of the Podcast and then stop as the adapter tried to fast forward. Eventually the tape deck in the truck started clicking, the tape adapter’s reels continued to spin in fast forward and there was no more Podcast.

Frustrated, Elise pressed the eject button. The tape adapter came out of the tape deck and the stereo switched to radio mode. In radio mode the stereo found itself in a perpetual state of seek, scanning every radio station but not stopping. We just watched as the channel numbers cycled over and over at a rapid speed.

I’m wondering if I should summon the scholarly minds of the Ford Forums.

In unrelated news: I couldn’t fall asleep last night. Elise fell asleep on the couch at 10:30. I woke her up and we both went to bed at 11:15 and I just layed there.

I layed there.

I layed there.

I rolled over.

Still haven’t yet fallen asleep I finally lean up and looked at the clock. 1:30 a.m.

I rolled over. I put my feet outside of the sheet and comforter. I layed on my side. I switch sides. I turned my head one way, then the other way. I rolled over. I meditated and thought about nothing. I just couldn’t fall asleep.

I didn’t want to get up and do anything in fear that I might overly stimulate my senses and make it that much harder to fall asleep.

So I just layed there for what seemed like forever.

I don’t know what time I finally fell asleep but I think it was somewhere near 10-minutes before my alarm sounded.
