Weeehooo!

I won, I won !*does the ridiculous shake-the-booty while churning- the -butter dance*
My quest for an iPod finally paid off, due to the regularly irregular pimpage of the ASP homestead. Mr. Fabulous had a contest going a while ago for an Ipod Shuffle, an *cough* iPod accessory *cough*, or a Barnes and Nobel gift certificate. In return, all he wanted was a little pimping, link love and possibly a vote.

Why pimp myself? My daughter wants a MP3 player but I refuse to buy her one. Everyone has their price as they say and evidently mine is anything with an "i" in front of it. ;) Seriously though Anna has been wanting a MP3 player, and though I hate to sully an iPod with only Disney tween music (Hannah Montana, High School Musical 1 &2, Aly and AJ...), a mommy's gotta do what a mommy's gotta do.

This solves our MP3 player dilemma because we don't want to necessarily buy her something that costs 79$, but on the other hand you get what you pay for right? I have seen quite a few cheaper brands in the 30$ range, but most of them get bad reviews. The other thing is that we ave to consider how much to pay vs how responsible an almost 7 yr old can be.

My only hope is that the truly fab Mr. Fabulous doesn't change his mind about giving me my prize once he reads this.eek

Congratulations!

Mr. Fabulous said...

I love that you are giving it to your daughter. I guess she's not old enough for the other one, eh?

Mert said...

Julia, thanks!

Mr. Fab she's not old enough to be able to take care of a 200.00 MP3 player, no way. Maybe when she is older.

Cool, you get to stick to your principles and she still gets an mp3 player.

Quick, go buy a lottery ticket while you're still hot.

AWESOME! Congrats!

I see you are doing NanoWrimo this year - good luck.

I did it last year and finished, but I just don't have the energy level this year. My brain feels frizzled already so don't dare try it.

Yay for you! Don't worry--we use the big iPod we just got for Spongebob and Jimmy Neutron movies and Veggie Tales Silly Songs with Larry. You're not alone!
