smell like I sound

The following post is somewhat in response to Beej's many "What Did Dirty Larry Bring Me" episodes...

It seems that I'm beginning my emergence out of the dark ages. Looky what Magnum got me!

Yes, it's a precious little iPod shuffle.

I've mentioned here before that I didn't own such a thing. I'm not really the ubiquitous earbud type, and when I do listen to fed-straight-into-the-ears tunes, it's just when I'm using my treadmill.

But finally, FINALLY, Magnum's frequent flyer miles were worth something. Rather than just offering airplane tickets to someplace we weren't going to anyways (because we've got three kids that we would then have to cough up money for plane tickets for in addition, and who really wants to spend that money and travel on an airplane with three kids?), they've started offering other sweet treasures.

Such as my brand new precious iPod shuffle. And that's not all. Magnum got himself some sweet new binoculars too.

Just got it last night, so haven't used it yet. As usual, I plan to just use it on the treadmill. I'll be a downloading fool today.

I think it goes lovely with the loufah that Magnum scarfed from that hotel room for me.

And no, this is not a Christmas present so yes, I can have it NOW.


  1. This is VERY exciting news!! I always thought you needed one of those!'ll have to get an iTunes account...surely. I shall gift you a song!!

  2. Oh, please blog about it once you get acclimated to it.
    I've held out listening to the sounds of nature and white noise.
    Been thinking about it lately though. Will it help with the running? Hmmm....

  3. It's so TINY and cute! Can't wait to hear how you like it.

  4. Ah, yes, the shuffle is sweet, but the loofah is all the sweeter because of it's ill-gotten, pirate-like nature arrrr :P

  5. Hungry Like the Wolf? Am I smelling DuranDuran on your nifty shuffle?

  6. Way cool. They are pretty rugged and weigh next to nothing. Now you can crank up Rebel Yell and the miles will just melt away. Of course, it is kinda hard at first trying to figure out where to stick the cassettes....
