Look what I finally bought, y'all. An iPod nano.
It's taken me so long to figure out which one I want, and when you add that to the fact that I didn't want to be one of "those people" who sit on the bus and aren't aware of their surroundings because their music is so friggin' loud, I just never could bring myself to buying something from Mr. Jobs that would be obsolete before I got it out of the store.
For instance, I know that when my buddy Mike bought his boyfriend Andy an iPod nano a few months ago, it didn't have video capability, so when I walked into BestBuy to buy my iPod nano yesterday, I asked for the video iPod nano.
My nice, red headed customer service guy said, "Yeah, they all have video capability," making me once again feel like the idiot at the I.T. table.
I should have said, "Well, they haven't ALWAYS had video capability in all of them, Carrot Top, so lighten up, alright?," but I was nice and swallowed my hatred for and envy of tech geeks.
Thank God Mike bought Andy an iPod nano because when I got the beautiful, black 2 inch screener home yesterday, I started it and the language was set to Chinese.
Chinese and two inches. Coincidence? Not at all, baby.
So, Andy had to talk me screen to screen until we found which Chinese characters meant "Languages" so I could change the thing back to English.
Now, I have to load the damn thing. Any suggestions on what songs I need to download from iTunes?
P.S. Tomorrow I buy my new computer.
Children's theatre may not be as sexy as working on the Goodman stage, but it definitely helps me buy new toys.
And these are toys I don't have to stash in the closet when my mother visits. Friggin' sweet.
