Do you Woot? Oh, I SO woot, and thanks to my favorite deal-of-the-day site, I am now the proud owner of my first handheld portable mp3/video player. Yes, if God had chosen to make me financially secure, I might already be in possession of one of those swanky Apple iphones, but seeing as how I’m not always the smartest with the almighty dollar, I can kinda understand his reservations. So instead, I wooted myself a $36 refurbished Sansa portable video player…and I gotta tell you…it’s no white trash bargain basement junk. The thing actually and literally rocks!!
So far, I have downloaded most of my mp3 collection and a couple episodes of Regis and Kelly’s host chat. I’m so busy homeschooling these days that I miss my R & K, and it is just plain devastating, so now I have them on my Sansa, and they go wherever I go. (don’t worry…Kelly is so skinny she hardly even weighs down my purse)
It is so cool to be waiting at my son’s orthodontist appt, and not be limited to last February’s issue of O magazine for entertainment!! And seeing as how my faithful 2000 Ford Taurus wagon doesn’t even have a CD player (don’t judge me! it also doesn’t require a car payment!), now I just plug my new buddy into the receiver, and voila! Cool tunes in my ultra-uncool car!
My next goal? Downloading some of the terrific 80’s videos from 80smusicvids.com…what could be better than being stuck in traffic and watching Mr. T in his short-shorts rap about treating your mother right??!! I ask you…what??!!
Isn’t technology great?
