Sorry, love no time for bloggin'

You may or may not recall that I am a huge techno geek and yet, I've refused to buy an iPod. I don't do Apple, never have, never will. All you iPod junkies, don't even bother to try to convince me of all the wonders of the iPod. Its like trying to convince a diehard Republican to vote Democrat or vice versa.

My new baby (thanks to King Thing and the boys) and final birthday prezzie is this dookie brown Zune from Microsoft, of course.

Been loading music and videos on this baby as fast as I can since I ripped her from the box. Can you guess what music went on first?

Anyhoo, I know I owe y'all some goodies, some knitting and much more but I've got many years of techno repression to catch up on and just a smidge of time to do it in. I wish I could blame all of my lateness on the Zune but most of it is work related. And in the last 24 hours, I may have inherited an exchange student for the month of January. And there's this crazy Thanksgiving thing coming up next week and holiday knitting. Needless to say I'm (happily) thrashing.

I am compiling your dry hand solutions and will post on that soon though not before Tuesday because I'll be out of town again until then. I have wonderful birthday goodies to share thanks to your suggestions and by Tuesday, I should have a FO or two using the fiber I purchased. I decided that I loved all of your ideas so much that I'm going to send all of you assorted chocolatey goodness from the newly opened Chocolate Paper. Send me your addy by email (and I know who the 13 of you are so please be honest) and I'll get the goodies out to you sometime between now and after Thanksgiving. Thanks again for helping me celebrate well over a month of birthday goodness. I've got a chick weekend planned with three wild crazy Costa Rican women. What have I gotten myself into?

BTW - for those of you in the Roanoke area, AC Moore is clearing out seemingly all of the KFI distributed yarns (Araucania, Alpaka, Cashmere, etc.) for great prices (30 - 50% off). Get it before its gone (there's not much left thanks to my crazy buying frenzy this morning)!

MP3 players are great. Ironically, I use mine mostly to back up my laptop. :) Oh, and BTW, besides discovering your site b/c of your fortune cookies, as a Hokie, I am excited to see another Southern Virginia blogger! Let's go TECH!!

Sorry, another thing... I'll be back home in VA Beach for Turkey Week. Hope to meet you up for coffee/tea or somet'in similar!

Me and my iPod shall never be parted.

But I'm glad you got an mp3 player of some sort! Yayhoo for gadgets!

Also, wish I could make it to A.C. Moore before all the good stuff is gone!
