So I’ve been doing some thinking about what I want for Christmas, well, because it’s coming up soon.
And I’m obsessed with the idea of mp3’s mainly because I don’t have an ipod and the closest thing I’ve ever done with digital music is click on a song that bub purchased from itunes on the computer. I know, I’m like a little granny.
But now that we are back into our gym groove and I’m *going* more, my dinky little arm-band walkman (thanks, sis!) with about 2.1 stations on it (ones that come in without static, that is) and the fact that I didn’t even have a discman–and the walkman I retired before my armband radio was true to the walkman form: it was a cassette player, makes me think it’s high time I caught up with the 2000 era and get with the program.
My old job allowed me to commute via the train and so many people had their ipods on. I wasn’t getting the big deal–what’s wrong with reading in silence? Now that I have XM radio in my car–purely because it came with it or else I probably wouldn’t have opted to sign up–I can’t imagine a measley few stations on the radio with the only other option being to listen to CDs. Perhaps if I had an mp3 player I wouldn’t need to think twice about XM; it would be a moot point.
So I’m doing some research into what player I want. I’m sure many would think it’s a no-brainer: just get an ipod, but I want to do some research and really understand what it is that I’m starting to obsess about…
