my new toy

The is the Samsung YH-J70, my new mp3 player. I know, I know, I could have gone for the brand new iPod, blah blah blah. But this one does the stuff the new iPod does and it was cheaper and I needed it this week to cart 11GB of video files back to Canberra with me from my parents' computer.

I taught my mother to download and she's been collecting Japanese TV dramas she'll never watch (for me) ever since. Usually she burns them on CDs and mails them to me, but I messed up this time and asked her to download something that wouldn't fit on a CD. Hence the new flash drive/mp3 player/video player/radio/fun new toy.

Having watched every episode of season 3 of Sex & the City recently (one of the many series/sitcom seasons I missed while living overseas) I am aware there are more, ummm...exciting...electrical toys out there, but for now the Samsung YH-J70 has me orgasmic enough. It holds 20GB of data, which is about 10,000 songs or 10 hours of video. How many scary, porn star sized electrical dildos can say that. (Can you tell I'm psychologically debriefing from the episodes they did in LA? I may be emotionally scarred for life.)

Okay I have to go transfer music now.
