Gizmo Guy’s ecstatic – he’s got a new Gizmo to play with. (And Leah’s happy because she didn’t have to pay for this latest toy. And because GG now has ideas for her to buy for him for Father’s Day. Bonus!)

Last week GG’s workplace was having a fundraiser for a health center – tickets were five bucks, the grand prize was a Wii with a Guitar Hero package. He wasn’t really interested in yet another video game system but chucked in five bucks anyway. It was for charity after all.

Imagine his surprise when he got an email that he’d won second prize. Having no idea what he’d won, he went down to pick it up and discovered he’d won an IPod Touch – basically they’re like an IPhone but without the phone part. They play your music, but also videos, and can surf the web as well. So right now he’s downloading ITunes, and transferring over his music. He’s surfed the web – yup, he checked my website. It’s pretty cool because it’s got this little gyroscope thingy in it so if you turn it sideways it automatically turns the image to match the screen. So he held it up and said “Here’s your website this way,” turned the IPod Touch on its side and said with a big grin, “Here’s your website that way” and it automatically adjusted. I think the rest of the weekend’s going to be like that.

But that’s fine because he’s as happy as a pig in … mud.

    Oh, wow. I guess I’ll have to have oneeven though I have an IPOD classic.

    CFM says I have more gadgets than the astronauts. I get it naturally – when my Daddy died we found itty bitty, miniscule hooks with no eye that he’d bought because they were cute.
