i (as in me) pod

Taking first in a multi table tournament is pretty damn exhilarating. Unfortunately, I have not done that in a few months, so my exhilarating moments on the felt have been few and far between. I can't complain though, cause I've been focusing my play at the cash game and heads-up sng tables. My only tournaments of late have been a few of the blogger tourneys and a couple of sporadic mtt's. No excitement to report there.

In lieu of the thrills of a tourney win, tonight I was able to get my buzz from another source. I've been working on poker bonuses to build up enough points/cash to order myself a little gadget and tonight I was finally able to do the deed. Here is what I ordered...

Nothing like getting a sweet ass gadget for free simply from playing poker. Yeah, I'm pretty much grinning from ear to ear. That's an 80gb, 5.5 generation ipod video. This is my first ever mp3 player, and most def my 1st ipod. Granted, I'm pretty late to the game with this one, but I don't care. I've had my eye on an ipod for years and now is the perfect time for me to have one. My travel has increased of late so having this for the car or plane is perfect.

Apparently this bad boy can hold up to 20,000 songs or 100 hours of video (or whatever mix of the two I choose). I'm guessing those numbers probably represent the lower quality downloads, but I can't imagine putting even 2000 songs on there. That will leave plenty of room for videos, tv, movies and podcasts. I can't wait to slap a few poker podcasts on there as well as an audiobook, or eight.

So anyway, this post represents me being all giddy like a school girl on pink m&m's. And don't think I wont' still try and kick some ass in the bloggerpods tourney this Sunday as well. ChickJax would dig an ipod to ya know.

Until next time, may the felt be with you.

I heart my video iPod.

I never really wanted an iPod, but now that I have one (wife blew me away w/one for Christmas), I don't know what I ever did without it. I now hold in the palm of my hand every CD I ever bought (except for the bad ones), every MP3 I ever stole, 10 or so Podcasts (video and otherwise...including every back episode), my 6000 digipix from the last 4 years, and 13 (and counting) of my favorite movies that I've ripped. And its only about 1/3 full.

Apple rules my world. All I do is take this little baby everywhere I go, and I'll never be bored again as long as I live.

I have the same IPOD, you will love it!! The best thing about it is how long the battery lasts compared to my older ipod. This thing is ideal for the WSOP and other deep stack tournaments!

I can't believe you took an iPod for youself and didn't let ChixJax get one.

You selfish, selfish jerk.

(It is pretty sweet though. Plus SHE wasn't the one playing poker...)
