I have had a busy week, as has most everyone I’m sure. You may be thinking that atheism and Christmas don’t mix well, but they do when you’re an Objectivist.
So, anyhow, great Christmas. My wife got me an iPod, which is around $400 and well worth it. It’s already liberated me from my laptop, which liberated me from my desktop. I don’t know what could liberate me from my iPod, but I don’t know that I want to be. In related computer news, I got a TiBag—a messenger bag designed to hold PowerBook G4s. My wife thinks it looks gay, but she’s never seen all of the messenger-bag-toting heterosexuals at ASU and she doesn’t have to lug around a huge backpack.
I also got an electric razor that is very nice, ultra-convenient, and not as close as a razor. I don’t care, though, because I absolutely hate shaving and this makes it quick. I’ll shave twice as often to keep the facial hair off if it’s this easy.
I got a bunch of DVDs (Bruce Campbell vs. Army of Darkness, L.A. Story, Das Boot, Fistful of Dollars, SpongeBob SquarePants, and Twister) and books (Sams Teach Yourself Macromedia Flash MX in 24 Hours and Arizona: Then and Now).
