Nano Quest

I've been trying to make time to buy a new nano since my nano disappeared last week. It was either stolen from my desk at work, or hidden by me so well that I don't even have a recollection of hiding it.

In addition to making me sad (my mom gave it to me as a present with my nickname engraved on it!), it's disappearance has thwarted my intentions to get back into the gym. The idea of running without my music is pretty much unfathomable. This in turn has been frustrating me because I've started this new nutritional regime and I know that I will not be able to maximize the results unless I combine the healthy eating with exercise. My goal is to do three cardio sessions in the gym per week, but at this point I would be proud of myself if I managed to get in there at least twice. But, in order to do that, I need an Ipod.

I stopped by Best Buy over the weekend, but after waiting for 20 minutes I was told that they were out of pink nanos. By that point, my heart was set on pink and I trudged away from the store dejectedly, my hopes for running over the weekend dashed. A friend of mine mentioned that I should go to the Apple Store on 5th Avenue, which I thought was a brilliant idea, but because of work being so busy the last two days I hadn't been able to make it over there.

Finally, fearing that yet another day was going to go by without me being able to pick up this essential work out item, I called the Fifth Avenue Apple Store, hoping that they would be open late enough so that I could pop by after work.

Do you know how late those crazy Apply people are open? Twenty four hours a day, 365 days a year. I didn't believe it when I saw it on their online information so I called the store and asked. The saleswoman assured me that even if I came by at 2 am I would be able to buy a nano. Amazing.

The universe has once again conspired to lead me down the right path. I would basically have to fight the tide at this point to not end up at the gym all healthy, svelte, and happily bopping away. Who am I to stand in the way of my destiny? I'm off to the Apple Store tonight, after a vodka and soda cocktail.

Awesome! There is an Apple store near my apartment, and I like the vibe there. It's so clean and the people are pretty helpful. Have fun with your pink nano. I'm sorry to hear about the first one's disappearance, though.

"hidden by me so well that I don't even have a recollection of hiding it".....another example of Buttercup turning into her.....?. I hope you put the nickname on it again....but I guess you didn't. Bummer!

I love my blue nano. I thought about getting the pink, but my phone is pink so I didn't want to mix them up. Enjoy your new one!
