there was one thing in my letter to santa this year: a simple request for a mixed tape(cd) of the latest and greatest hip-hop/pop songs. a little rihanna, some chris brown, and a whole lot of mrs. beyonce...you know, whatever the kids are listening to these days.
i attribute my new appreciation for this genre of music to my recent conversion from the ipod to fm radio. that or the super mixes they play on repeat in aerobics ("...let's get physical") class. either way, i'm sold. and ready to dance.*
so you can imagine my excitement when a friend presented me with an early christmas gift.
