Free iPod Shuffle

I just got my free iPod Shuffle in the mail today! I had to switch my bank account to TD (Toronto Dominion) / Canada Trust with either 1 payroll or 2 scheduled withdrawals. It's pretty tricky you can't just open random bank accounts and still get it. But anyways... I haven't bought a tech gadget for a long time. Here it is:

I'm so excited.

Here it is in my hand.

I tried to get some songs on it and it seems I can't just drag and drop music onto it as a removable hard drive. I needed to install the iTunes software first (I really don't like that) and use that to load songs. It was not very intuitive to me and screwed up front USB ports on my computer didn't help.
The best thing about the iPod are these:

They cost $39.99 CDN at Futureshop and so worth getting the iPod shuffle.

I'm walking around Futureshop and find nothing interesting so I took a picture of the cool Halo figure they have:

I haven't played Halo before but it's probably like any other first person shooter.

Counting it down to next week

It's rare I'm looking forward to something really great. Actually, I do remember waiting for Street Fighter 2 Turbo for the SNES to come out, Super Street Fighter 2 to come out, Nokia 6230b in the mail, Godiva chocolates in the mail, T616 in the mail, pay day, report cards, Christmas, summer, my birthday, weekends, school, work, end of the day, laptop in the mail, laptop battery replacement in the mail, graduation, and probably many other things.
But lately I've been waiting for the Nokia 6682. And Cingular's going to be carrying it very soon! Here's eye candy I found this weekend on Darla's Blog:

Oh boy... it's coming out early September so I'm counting down the days.

Garden inside Market Village

Something people often glance over while shopping for car parts, cell phones, stuffed toys, fob clothes, computer parts, and food is the little garden inside Market Village.

It's a bit cramped but it does look very asian.

Chocolate covered Espresso beans

This is something my sister got me this past week:

I really wish I had a couple right now. Actually, I should say almost half the box.

It's not common for me to buy a board game. But this time I had a very compelling reason to get one. I played this game at a friend's house and it was really fun. It takes quite some time to really get use to it and be good at it though.
So here's the game I've bought... Terakh!!

Wowie the anticipation! Now here's a pic before I mess it up:

OK I have it open and I'm ready to play. Time to play!!

Too bad I don't really have anyone to play with.
