Vigorous Anonymity

Once again, my iPhone has delivered something new to me that fills me with Teh Happy.

I have discovered Barnes & Noble’s eReader.

Yeah, yeah, I know it’s not a Kindle, and I know the iPhone screen is a little on the small side, but DUDES!  FREE!!??  And the books for it are less than you’d pay for a paperback at a bookstore!  I’m in love.

Last week, I sat here at my desk, during a very slow time for us, and read an entire book on my iPhone.  No one knew, and I looked relatively busy since I had papers spread out all over the place.  You have to know how to work it.  I’m just sayin’.

So last night I downloaded Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane.  It’s the new book that the new Scorcese/Decaprio movie is based on.  I’m very excited to get started.

Now this in no way diminishes my need for an iPad.  My LUST for an iPad.  It’s not happening any time soon, but ooooh baby baby.  I needs me one of those.

On the iPod:  No Regrets, Robbie Williams

Oh my.  I had no idea.  Really, I didn’t.

Oh sure I’ve heard you all glom on and on about how much FUNNN your new Wii console is, and how much TOGETHERNESSSS you’ve found as a family, but I paid you no mind.  I, in fact, pooh-poohed your claims as ignorant.  I mean, do any of YOU have a level 60 World of Warcraft Paladin?  Yeah, that’s what I thought.  So what could you possibly know about video games.

But then I had a weak moment in which I whipped out my MasterCard and bought the family that sleek white box and we were transformed.

Have you all seen the commercial where the teenage boy ignores his friends beeping in the car outside so he can play one more game of Wii tennis with his little sister?

Yeah, ok, that didn’t happen, but STILL!  There was much huddling around the television and much accidental throwing of nunchuks at bric-a-brac.  It really was quite enjoyable.

And now I am in the market for a fitness type game, so if anyone has any suggestions, make them now.  Wii Fit Jenny McCarthy’s game? Or is there a great one you know of that I’ve missed.

  • TheQueen: Yeah, perhaps next year suggest you ALL just skip the adult gifts and focus on the little ones. I'm sure you won't miss it!
  • kristabella: Yay! You're back!
  • Shania Ring: Out of all of that, the only thing in my head is 20?!? Twenty? I remember a little boy in middle school when I first started reading you. Are you SURE
