In addition to my usual comings and goings, I attended a “young lawyers” reception with DOOR PRIZES. I got lured in by “MEET PEOPLE . . . . . WIN AN IPOD”
FREE IPOD! oh and food and booze and attorneys I might actually like. Count me in!
IPOD IPOD IPOD!
Now don’t be fooled, I already own a 4 GB Ipod nano (2nd generation) which more than adequately fulfills my running background noise needs. I am also able to use the super cool Nike + iPod pack to keep track of my pace and distance. So for all practical purposes, I don’t NEED a new iPod.
But gosh darn to WIN ONE!
So away I go.
I’m wearing my snazzy dress/business slacks with my red shirt and my brand spanking new red coat. I adore this coat. It’s chic. There aren’t that many truly chic clothes out there but this coat is truly chic. It seems more retro in person than it does in the link. I’m ready to meet people, eat some grub, and win an iPod.
This is one of those events where you get a card and you have to talk to all the volunteer agencies that put a sticker on your card and when you fill your card up with stickers. I meet some people. I make some jokes. I hope some of them were funny and I eat some food. They had mini cheesecake! Hey now, an evening can’t completely suck when there are mini cheesecakes in the house.
So the drawing begins. oooh oooh ahhhh.
AND I WIN!

Yayee I win. I walk up smiling and all appreciative for my good fortune.
But in actuality, I was thinking, “Shit this means I don’t get the iPod!”
(FYI, I already own the book)
