so remember when my trusted green ipod (greenie) started acting up last week? and how i went to my
worst favourite store ever future shop and got a replacement (silv-ah)?
i completely called that one. i kid you not, ever since silv-ah entered the condo casa, greenie has pulled up his socks and is acting just fine. he hiccups once per use, then as soon as i shift his position (waistband to hand or hand to clipped-onto-shirt) he’s fine again.
so greenie is still in the rotation…
…and silv-ah still sits on the dining room table:
i’m not taking silv-ah back, though. i am very interested to see just how long greenie ipod will be stubborn and keep on truckin’. i’ll let ya know!
i realized you have not yet seen the new ikea couch all set up!
house condo casa rules: no food or drink on the couch! no dirty fingers near the couch! of course, just wait ’til the little nieces are over…you know aunti has a hard time saying “no,” so all rules will likely be right out the window. thankfully, the couch cover and cushions are all machine-washable! and it’s not like it’s meant to be a museum piece. furniture – esp from ikea! – is for using!
i’ve tried out the couch already: one night this week, i flopped down with my laptop and enjoyed the latest jersey shore episode. the couch passes the comfort test! bet i could do a whole bethenny getting married marathon and not get uncomfortable!
yesterday’s ooooo-eeeeeee!!! moment of the day: you will not believe who i sold a pair of running shoes to at the store yesterday afternoon.
[here you say, “no way!” and then i say, “i know!!!!” and then i wave my hands around a bit in a frenzy of glee].
i’m really quite proud of myself because i remained professional and calm and intelligently answered mr gladwell’s shoe queries. see, normally in a situation such as this, i would want to squeal and jump around. however, i didn’t even let on that i recognized him – although i knew who he was as soon as he entered the store – until after he purchased his shoes (brooks glycerin 9s, btw), then i serenely said, “thanks for coming in today. iamafanofyourworkandit’sapleasuretomeetyou.” i even refrained from asking for an autograph! i didn’t think it seemed professional since i was on the job and he was a customer and was acting all normal. but, what would you have done? autograph? photo, even? (i had my camera in my knapsack!!). i didn’t want him to think i was weird, so i stuck with my cool cat persona. [mr gladwell grew up in elmira, just outside of waterloo, so i assume he is here visiting family].
today’s random survey question: you can have EITHER cable tv or internet in your home. which do you choose? internet all the way, baby! i can watch many worthless shows – my current favourite type – online so that covers the tv-watching issue. and i do not do well without instant access to high-speed internet and my laptop – >
emailing and blog-reading communication junkie that i am!
