I did it. I ordered an iPod. I just did it yesterday, figuring I'd have a few days before it shipped in case I wanted to change my mind and cancel the order, but no; it shipped this morning. This is the first time I've put something on my credit card without having enough money to pay it off immediately. Stupid me. Soon I'll be on that crappy "Till Debt Do Us Part" show, being yelled at by that lady with the weird accent, telling me how to avoid becoming homeless.

At least my week-long obsession with iPods is now over. I can quit laying awake at night as I waffle between buying it or not buying it, black or white, and what I should engrave on it. It's pathetic, really. Of course, now I'm obsessed with reloading the tracking information. It just left Shanghai. [Insert racist joke about my iPod being Chinese].

As you can see, I have nothing interesting to say. Move along.

did you end up getting the 80 giger? black or white? what engraving?

Ive been going through the thoughts to get one now. And with the 80 gigger costing less than the 60 did, its almost a no brainer. But then again there is the money issue thing, but when has that ever been an issue before

Yay! Now I can ditch my perfectly-good-yet-not-nearly-new-fangled-enough digital camera for a new one. "Well, Phronk did it so I can too" This is the kinda shit credit is for!

And the engraving says???

It's a white 80's the best value per gig, and I will fill it up eventually.

I got fed up with thinking of an engraving and put something geeky and dumb on it. I'll take pictures when it gets here.

I need new earphones for my old mp3 player. Maybe that'll be my new purchase.

I might just have to get one now with your approval.
