Hello 21st Century. It's nice to meet you.

OMG you guys! I got an iPod touch! Look at me being all techy and cool! I’ve had it about three days now and I already don’t know how I ever lived without it! The only sucky thing is we don’t have wi-fi at our house yet (coming soon!) so I’m limited as to what I can do while at home. Thank goodness we can download apps from the computer! [What would we do without 'Milk the Cow' and 'DH Challenge' (hunting game)?]

We did try walking around the block with it and seeing if we could pick up any unsecure signals. It worked in one spot but quickly faded. Damn all those secure people! Don’t they trust anyone? Sigh!

It was an early birthday presents to me from my parents but I’m not sure who has used it more, Bud or my husband. (Notice I didn’t mention my name.) I took it to work yesterday and when I got home the very first words out of Bud’s mouth were “Mom, can I have your iPod?” Nice to see you too Bud! At least his priorities are well known!

But I feel so super cool now! I’m like that person that wants to talk about the movie they just saw on video Netflix that really came out, like, 5 years ago.

Anyone have recommendations for good (free) apps?

  1. Facebook!!!! That's my fave app.

    You can also bookmark your blog to
    be an icon on the screen.

    I also have a nook app on it, whatever i download on my nook, appears on my ipod.

    I don't have too many games, so no help there.

    Enjoy your itouch. I love mine!!

  2. Hey! Nice work!!!! I have the iPhone so I am not sure if it is compatable, but All the Duck, Duck, Moose games are great for kids (aka Babe will love them)

    ps...wish we could have gone to the NYstate fair..but too far :(

  3. Woo hoo! Go you! I am also super behind on the tech curve. I don't have a smart phone, but I do have an Ipod touch (got it for Christmas!)

    I'm going to have to check out Milk the Cow. It sounds awesome.

    Have you checked out Angry Birds? I think there's a free "trial" version that only gives you a few rounds, but it's all the rage.

  4. YAY for technology! And birthdays! :)

  5. Congratulations! Though, I just had to google what exactly an Ipod Touch was? Ya, I'm so not cool. I'm hoping to get a smart phone soon. :)

  6. Good for you and Happy Birthday. Hope you get to enjoy your new toy. I guess that's what bedtimes are for right :) Have fun.

  7. The more technology you get, the less it will be used by you. Just sayin'. :)

  8. Chess is right! Guess who uses my itouch more? My little girls. Guess who uses my Nook the most, yep, my teen.
