F.F. and my b-day

This weekend was special for many reasons. First of all it was my birthday. I got some nice cards and calls and presents (including that 80GB ipod I just blogged about from Dan). I got to talk to Danny about video games, Michael talked about the guitar and Annabelle serenaded me with "happy birthday". Jack wasn't in the mood for the phone.
I'm not sure how I feel about being 27 because I've passed from "mid 20's" to "late 20's". I remember, when I was younger, thinking that 27 was old because several rock stars (Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, and Janis Jopplin) died at age 27 and they had lived a long life.
On the day of my birthday, Dan and I went to the Redskins game (they blew a 14 point lead), but it was still fun.
In other exciting news, I also got my first win in Fantasy Football. I'm no longer in last place since I had such a good week I have moved from 12th to 9th!

10 years!!!

Yesterday, I got something in the mail from Newton Country Day about my 10 year reunion. Save the date, May 8, 2008. I can't really believe that it's been 10 years. It got me thinking a little bit. So much has happened. I couldn't even imagine myself owning a car or not living at home.

I can't wait to see who is married and who has kids. For the 5 year, there were no marriages or children.

On a completely different note, my birthday is in a little over a week. I don't really need anything, but people from work have gone on their last summer vacations and brought back salt water taffy from the beach. I've been offered a piece here and there, but I'd like some for myself. All I want for my birthday is salt water taffy (preferably the fruit flavored or mint). Please!!!

covet thy neighbor's goods

Acutally, no neighbor of mine has this yet, so it's hard to covet. But still.

Apple came out with some new stuff today. The New Ipods are 80BG and 160GB. I'm not really sure how to explain how large that is other than saying my iPod is 20GB, I've only used up 8.47 GB, I have 1683 songs, which is 4.5 days of listening to music without repeating 1 song.

I'd really love that 80 GB. It's $249.99. The 160 is $349.99

What I don't actually get is that the new 16GB Nano is $199.99. Why not get the extra 72 GB for $50.00?

I must say, that I do get my money's worth on the iPod. Everyday to and from work, I plug it into my car. It saves my life in the rush hour traffic. It's much nicer than carrying around 500 cd's.
