Shuffle, Monkey, Shuffle!

MacWorld yesterday. Hmn. The only reason I really know about it is because my husband is a MacAddict, or as we like to say around the house, if his iMac had the proper 'port', he wouldn't be needin' a wife. (Maybe that's what all those conservative anti-gay marriage nimrods are worried about; that the so-called slippery slope will result people like Single T marrying their computers. How dare he threaten the sanctity of marriage with his computer-love!)

I DO love my Mac, don't get me wrong. I just don't get all hot and bothered about the stuff like does. He REALLY wants to get me an iPod Shuffle, so that I can come out of the dark ages and trade in my usual walk-to-work companion, the Discman. But, you know, I'm ok with listening to the same CD 1.5x a day. At least for now. I'd much rather spend the $129 (+tax) on 30 Williams' Apple Carmel Waffles.

Hehehe... That's a hell of a discount! :P

Actually, Mrs. Niffer AKA Mrs. Moy, you could get the Shuffle _AND_ a Williams' coffee with the $1 savings. (trying to help you out, Moy).

Nice try Frank, but it's a Williams WAFFLE that I want and they're $5. And you can't just eat one.

I know from the outset that the MacWorld 'phrenzy' can be a bit odd...but what other company has a guy like Steve-O walk on stage with his legendary black shirt, blue jeans, and sneakers then turn around and reveal fantastic new software, the Mac Mini, and the iPod Shuffle...hehe.

I managed to convert a friend from buying a new PC to getting an iMac G5 before Christmas and he still doesn't get what all the hub-bub is about come MacWorld time...(did ya see those killer iHome images!)

Anywho...get Mat to grab you an iPod shuffle...it's gotta be on every girls dream gift list right?

Oh...and btw, Mat wanted me to stop by and say hey (it's chris from g-town)...so, hey!...When's the next movie-a-thon? hehe.

daang, all. the niffer is getting the shuffle. she realised tonight while we were eating dinner (i actually hadn't mentioned anything about it all night up to that point) that we got a $50 gift cert from futureshop for xmas last weekend. she said that if i'd let her have it, she would use it to buy herself a shuffle. done and done. and a good way to get a cheap device even cheaper. $50 cheaper. welcome to the minty manour - home of the megageeks!

futureshop has them on the pre-order now:

you can't get there from the front page tho. you need to click on the shuffle banner on their home page, then click "compare" to see the cheaper one. sneaky...

I'm so glad there's another "Computer Wife" out there. We should start a support group.

I've noticed that people seem to be either very much for, or against Macs.
