Electronic Spouse

The iPod I had ordered last week arrived yesterday. I am in love with it. It took me quite awhile to jump on the iPod bandwagon, but when I found that my eleven year old sister had one and not me, well it was time to take action. I didn't want all the music in my library to be put on it, so I spent a couple of hours scrolling through my songs and only putting on the ones I like. So far I'm up to 516. According to the specs I only have space for about 6,814 more so I had better be discriminating with my choices. I also plan to download some of the episodes that I've missed of my favorite NPR shows since I haven't quite memorized what time they come on in Minnesota.

It was late last night while Stepdad and I were playing with my new toy when I remembered that I hadn't talked to Deano yet and my phone was on silent from work still. By the time I checked it, I had two missed calls and a text message that read, "R U alive?" I felt horrible. I called Dean back and explained that my iPod came and I'd been playing with it.

"I've been replaced by an iPod," Dean said sounding very pathetic and dejected. In my own defense, I began telling him about all the neat stuff it can do, how it can sort, shuffle, play music and videos, and store pictures. My husband, the technically challenged,was unimpressed. "Well, after tonight you had better hope it can vibrate, too."

Poor Dean! You'll have to make it up to him the next time you see each other. Hmmm, how to do that? Boy, that's a head scratcher for sure!

too funny. Once Jamie went out of town and left his cell phone with me, and told me, "Don't worry about getting "lonely" the cell phone has a vibrate feature!" lol

How hysterical! I have an iPod phone. Not the iPhone, but one of the earlier attempts. Still, I love having a bit of music stored up for any occasion. Enjoy!
