I appear to have purchased a new iPod.
Honestly, I expected to be outbid. I only raised the bid by $10, and there were nine hours to go. Life, however, does not always (or indeed ever) work as expected. You would think I'd have figured this out before now, really.
Suggestions on what to call the new beast? I'm thinking Othello myself, because I'm literary like that.
In other news, writing? Is hard to get back into once you've stopped. Oof.
