I resisted getting an iPod for quite a while. Sure, all my friends had one and no one wants to fit in more than I do but to me an iPod seemed like a waste of money.
I would never use one. I don't have TIME for music.
But then the new iPod Shuffles came out right before Christmas and they were so teensy and wee. I had to have one.
Santa Claus came through and I was a proud owner of an iPod Shuffle.
Oh how fantastic this tiny little thing was! I became an iTunes junky. I suddenly discovered bands I had forgotten about, genres of music that I didn't know existed, podcasts, audiobooks, etc..
Suddenly, 1 gig wasn't enough. I had this fantastic idea when, right after Christmas the fucking asses at Apple decided to come out with a PINK shuffle, to get a second shuffle. Now I would have one for music and another for podcasts and audiobooks.
Just like that tiny hit of crack, I was hooked. Oh no, two shuffles weren't enough. I convinced myself that I needed a Nano - a PINK Nano. To justify my extravagance, I offered my two shuffles for sale. A coworker bought one and I haven't found a buyer for the pink one yet.
As soon as I had a buyer for the silver one, I hit Best Buy and shelled out $199 for a pink iPod Nano.
Oh how I love this thing! Seriously, I love it more than a person should love an inanimate object.
It holds pictures, podcasts, audiobooks and my precious music.
I have playlists and lyrics and games and a calendar. It's just simply super.
A friend took a look at my list of music and declared me insane.
He noticed one ABBA song and asked me how I sleep at night.
I sleep very well, thank you, with my earbuds firmly shoved in my ear canals!
