I'm in a blue mood, but in a good way. The cosmic forces are pointing to better days ahead and converging to enable the purchase of my latest techno-covet. Turns out a 2nd generation i-pod mini is being released and the price has dropped, and the 1st generation is now on sale. Yipee! So, I rush out to the local Best-Buy to snatch up the last pink ipod mini (1st gen) close to home. I get it home, crack it open and check out the i-tunes site.
Checking the website was a mistake for a girl who wants some instant gratification, but who also fastidiously reads reviews and researches her techno-purchases (often to the point of total inertia--the reason why I haven't got an ipod yet). The 2nd generation i-pod has a much longer battery life--18 hours over 8. And, it's only 20 bucks more. Shit.
But I can't have it now. So I hum and haw. Then I call around town and no one has them yet. Then I notice that the Apple site offers discounts to those attending/working at universities. I work at a university and I can get a discount that makes the 2nd generation model cheaper than the one on my dining room table.
And I can get a blue one.
So I call Best Buy and confirm that I can return the pink one. Check. Then I consult with Craig on the engraving (what the hell it's free and that way I'll know it's mine). Then I trade instant gratification for anticipation and I order it.
The other blue in my life is koigu (I say if you're going blue, do it with the best). Charlotte's Web IV is coming along great--I'm on the fourth colour and I'm liking the blue intensity of this version. Here's a look at it in it's unblocked glory.
Now I'm going to sit on my blue couch (I have two) and wrap myself in a blue blanket and see if I get this done. I could be silly and say I'm eating blue corn chips, but food and I are still having issues so I'll drink ginger ale from a blue mug instead.
