I FOUND IT! I FOUND IT! The lost ipod, which has been lost for nearly a fortnight, was found 4 hours ago and you'll never guess where I found it? Nope, not in a million years will you guess the top shelf in the fridge door! I have been so upset about it, so upset, especially as I have had a new Coldplay album to devour. We had looked everywhere, including the last fortnight's mouldy rubbish and I even found it entering my dreams. But today I decided to rearrange the jars on the shelves in the fridge door and there it was nestled behind the Cloud Berry Jam, still ironically, paused on Shiver by Coldplay! It must have fallen from our Bose Dock which lives on top of the fridge. It still works too. What a versatile little thing.
One of the worst things, as I said, was not being able to conveniently listen to Viva La Vida, Coldplay's new album. This long awaited album was greeted by Matthew, Lucy and I with some trepidation. What if we hated it? I couldn't bear the disappointment. I have never really warmed to X & Y (their last album) prefering their older stuff. When they brought out the singles Violet Hill and Viva La Viva I wasn't overly impressed so worried even more. Then the release day arrived and in my skittish, exhilararation I bought it 3 times. Mmm, yeah 3 times. One hard copy and 2 from iTunes as I over-exerted my right clicking finger in my flurry of excitement. And was it worth the wait, I wasn't sure. Matthew actually waited 3 or 4 days before he even listened to it and then a few days later I received a text whilst shopping in Sainsburys to say he had finally 'got it' and loved it. I now have 'got it' and for the moment really love - Death & All His Friends including the hidden track, The Escapist; Lost; and 42. So there you have it, I don't think it's as good as Paracutes, Rush of Blood and their early EPs but there's more to love on it than X & Y. Oh it's good to have my ipod back..
