new toy

It’s an iPod. Thanks to a fortuitous work trip to Australia, and the collection of lots of discount vouchers for the Duty Free at the airport, I am now the proud owner of the 20Gb model.

It’s amazing. And beautiful. I don’t think I’ve ever owned a cooler gadget. Even the packaging is beautiful, cunningly designed to minimise buyer’s remorse by being just right somehow; and little messages from Apple (“Enjoy”) on the stickers securing it together.

I’ve got 1200 songs on it now and it’s only a third full (which is just as well, as I have another 200 CDs to go on it).

OK, so this is a really dull posting. But I can’t help it. I’m in love.
