My iPod froze up, halfway home. This made Stephie sad. I'm leaving it alone for now, but tomorrow night I will try a few things and see whether it will come back to me or whether it's bricked. If it needs to be replaced, I need to get on that quickly. I don't mind entertaining myself or listening to one of the CDs I keep in the car for local trips (by which I mean anything within about two hours), but I'm going to the DC area in two weeks and I need audiobooks or podcasts to make that trip by myself.
