I might quite possibly be the last one to get on, but I finally jumped onto the bandwagon! I succumbed to months of temptation and bought the iPod nano today :-D. Till I got to the store I was still debating whether to buy or not to buy. Then the sales-kid (note, I specifically say kid because he was probably just into his twenties) showed me his own iPod nano as the sample. My jaw hung open as I re-realized how extremely tiny and cute that thing is. Then the next realization hit that the that the kid owned one.
I walked away from the store with my own iPod nano :-))! From the time I came back home, I can't stop admiring it. Guilt ebbed away as I realized that I was happy just looking at it (ah, it sometimes feels real good to live in a materialistic world ;-)). Any remnants of guilt was washed away when both the friends whom I excitedly called and confided about my new purchase to sounded extremely delighted for me and positively implied that I needed an iPod in my life (ah, my dear friends, what would I do without them :-)).
So my cutie is charging right now. That's the iPod on my hand :-). I can barely wait to start using it. I already bought my first song at iTunes too - its Keith Urban's "You'll think of me." Long ago I had written about how I was smitten by the song. Well, I am still smitten by it and yesterday I actually took a detour while going home in my car just so the song (which was playing on the radio) could complete before I reached home :-/! No more detours :-)!
Now, to justify my iPod I am thinking of all sorts of new activities to take up. One is to jog everyday (hahahaha). Next is to train for a marathon (bigger hahahaha). Third is to walk everyday after dinner (hmm, finally something doable!). Let's see what happens.
Meanwhile I shall continue to droool :-D!
Update: I wrote all the above in the evening. Now, my iPod is all charged and ready. I must say Keith Urban sounds even more heavenly on the iPod :-D!
