I have no idea why anyone would want to read this ridicullious c*&@ that I write because I am bored, but this blog is about stuff. You know Israel, cooking, family life, politics, entertainment...stuff. Whatever is on my mind! Enjoy!

ipod Nation

I have to admit that for many months the green monster has been eating away at me. As I watched everyone walking around in their blissful ipod worlds, oblivious to everything and everyone else, lost in their playlists, I couldn't help but wish to be part of the cult.

I obsessed at the gym about how much better my workout would be if I had 1000's of my favorite songs in the palm of my hand (or strapped to my upper arm - which would be shirinking that much faster if only I had an ipod). As I walked the mile from the parking garage to class, I envied the numbness to the surroundings and the weather that the ipod users seemed to posess. I dreamed of my shadow dancing to Pearl Jam while little white earbuds swung from it's head. The ipods were multiplying by the day, and I was soon going to become the last person on earth without one.

Well - I wasn't about to let that happen, so I added the Apple store to my pre-dawn, post Thanksgiving, zombie-like shopping trance routine. How cold I resist when they were offering discounts that amounted to a little less than 10% of the purchase price? I was one of the first people in line and I got the first ipod Nano of the day.

How wonderful it is to spend my hours avoiding chores and school work, while trying download my entire CD collection? It's so liberating to ignore every study I've read about earbuds and hearing damage, while I dance around my house playing "Jeremy" full blast. It doesn't matter, because I know that my shadow is having the time of it's life. Oh sure- I will have to mortgage my house to buy all of accessories that my little ipod dictates I need, yet, somehow, I am really enjoying this little contraption.

I believe that the ipods have already taken over!!!
