A Little Bit Geek

At the end of last year Mickey told me about some new products Apple was coming out with.  I let it go through one ear and out the other like I usually do when it comes to computer stuff.  I did tune in more when he started talking about some tablet or whatever that was a bigger version of the iPhone but without the phone.  That sounded like something I would be interested in.  (The iPhone is too small for me to use well and I rarely use a cell phone so I didn't want an iPhone.)  In January he told me about the announcement for the iPad.  I watched the announcement, all hour and 45 minutes worth.  I was hooked.  I wanted an iPad.



Saturday morning we had gone to look at a house and we decided to stop by Best Buy on the way home to see if they had any left in stock.  I waited in the car with the kids while Mickey ran in.  He was in for a while so I assumed he either couldn't get any help or they had one.  I was thrilled when I saw him walking out with a box in hand.  I think Mickey's geekiness is rubbing off on me.  I have played with the iPad and love it.  I love that I can calendar everyone's activities, watch movies, check and send e-mail, look at pictures, surf the net, read books (I downloaded 20 free books!), and play games all with one devise.  And it's portable unlike the iMac in the basement I love to use.



If you know me at all you will know that I needed to make a little cover for the new toy.  I went to work last night.  I still need to add a little something to it but other than that it's finished.  It will help me hide and protect my geeky toy.

You made that case in ONE NIGHT? I shouldn't be surprised. You also helped me pack almost all my apartment in one night.
