an apple for the teacher

Right now Apple is running their Back to School special—buy a Mac for college, get a free iPod. Simple enough. You even get your choice of a free iPod Touch or an iPod Nano. I love Macs and I love free things. Needless to say I wanted this deal. Lucky for me I work in the Education field and can take advantage of the Back to School specials. So I did.

With a measly 3.75 GB left on my laptop I'm giddy to be upgrading. But that's not what this post is about. It's really about the iPod.

I chose the iPod Touch—I mean really, who would prefer the Nano? You had an option of personalizing it with free engraving, which I absolutely took advantage of. I like to think of it as a little theft deterrent. An original marking. Like a tattoo…but I digress.

Back to my personalization. I wanted to do something a little different. Something beyond just my name. I did put my initials on it, but I added a little something extra. Something that makes me laugh every time I look at it.

What do you think? Have you made the connection? Or are you completely lost?

I like it! And yes, I get it...

Confession time... I came very close to buying an iPod Touch. They are pretty cool. I have a friend that works for Apple so he could have me a really good deal on one. In the end I decided I would rarely use it, I already carry two cellphones around everywhere I go, I don't need another gadget to carry.

nobody—That is a huge step for you. Is it refreshing to admit it?

shades—I thought so. :)

ac(w)p—What surprises you? It's not naughty if that's what you're thinking.

brandy—Thanks! I thought so. I knew I had to share with the internet.

That's funny. Sometimes when I am at the gym, that song comes on. I like to drive everyone crazy by singing it.

Simply perfect.

Speaking of tattoos, maybe I'll get a tattoo that says that.

shiny—Oooh…clever retort.

student teacher—It's catchy in a somewhat inappropriate way.

soapy nethers—Just where would you put it? Or do I really have to ask?

I love it! And am also curious what they said when you told them what you wanted engraved.

Must be new toy time. We just got new cell phones ourselevs. It's fun playing with new toys!
