RIP Frankie Duex

So, Frankie Duex fell out of my purse for a whole 3 foot drop. This is the first time Frankie Duex has ever fallen. (… Frankie Duex is my pink iPod nano for those who don’t know) And uhm, Frankie has a scar on her screen now and she no longer works. Uhm. Yeah. You know, when I pay $250 for something, I expect it to survive more than one small drop. I’m not very tall, it wasn’t like it was a huge drop!!

So yeah, I took it to the store I bought it from and they didn’t want to help me. iPod’s falling are not covered by my renter’s insurance. So. To make myself feel better (because I refuse to buy another iPod at this point), I went and bought a digital camera. Yeah, I know, I already have the big pretty digital SLR but I really miss the days of taking millions of stupid useless pictures because I had a camera small enough to throw in my purse that can live up to the abuse. So, I bought a Nikon Coolpix L11. I love Nikon. I had my old one for like, 3 years before it died. And boy, did I abuse that camera. I also bought 15 minute rechargeable batteries and flip flops. Yay for retail therapy!

So yeah. I’m going to take Frankie Duex to a real Apple store because I refuse to give up that easy (after all, I’ve only had the damn thing for like, 2 months) but yay camera!

    LOL totally sounds like something I would do. hehe.

    Of course, I don’t have an iPod. Although I wouldn’t mind having one, but just can’t spend the money for one.
