I finally bought an Ipod a couple of days ago. Granted, it was used (gotta love Craigslist), and it’s a Shuffle. Small and cheap. Really, though, why would I need more than 250 songs at any one time? At three minutes per song on average, that’s about twelve and a half hours of music. I really only want it while I’m taking walks, and I just don’t see myself walking for much longer than that.
The guy I bought it from had purchased it, then his mom got him a Nano for his birthday a few days later. He had used it twice. I got a good deal on it — paid $10 less than what I expected. Dave Ramsey would be proud.
The guy was very nice. All in all it was a great transaction. He had a really cool apartment, too — with huge lime green circles on the wall, and some very feng-shui asian decor. As we left, we kinda figured he was batting for the other team, if you know what I mean. On the way home, I flipped through the music he had left on the Ipod… Debbie Gibson, Paula Abdul, lots of Mariah Carey, some really good jazz… Suspicions confirmed, I think.
Everything is iced over here. Seems like a great day to run some more laundry and import my CD collection to my ITunes library. Might even scrub a bathroom or two. Woo-hoo!
I already had today off for MLK, but Knight is home as well due to the weather. It’s nice to be home together and relax, since we *can’t* go run errands or anything. We’re also watching Superman Returns. Again.
All in all, I think it will be a great day.
