It is FINALLY warm by me Laughing

1. Do you have allergies to pollen? What are your symptoms?

2. Did you do anything fun for Mother's Day?

3. When it is humid, does your hair go straight or frizz up?

You can't see the benefit to not being tied to a contract?  Another company could offer an extremely better plan that you would not be able to switch to because of your contract.  Even if you have no intention of ever letting the time period go when  you get a free phone, you should be able to see the benefit to it.

OMG. So much angst over other people's hair, sun glasses, and cell phones. I guess it's better than stalking kids... Oh wait, you've been doing that too. Maybe you should pay more attention to what your husband is up to and stop worrying about everyone else.

I've worn glasses since I was 8; I've never NOT gone to an opthalmologist.  Heck even my chain [box] store preference for buying glasses has an opthalmologist who does eye exams.  and seeing her doesn't cost me extra.

With the exception of my modern Pfaff, the combined cost of all 12 of my other sewing machines is still less than the case for your iPod.

Real collector's items appreciate in value.  the machines Grap buys appreciate in value - especially since she restores them.  Your ipod will only depreciate in value.  I take that back - your iPod *could* appreciate in value ... if you never used it and kept it mint-in-the-box.

. Not quite the same thing since she buys up non-working vintage machines, restores them, and then sells them at a profit.

Of course, I'm not the one actually stupid enough to pay twice as much as the cost of a regular iPod just so everyone will know I like a band.

Sigh...I bought the ipod for myself not to let everyone know I like a band, which if they know me, they knew already my favorite band. It is a collector's item, just like you collect sewing machines which I feel the same way you feel about my ipod. Shrug.

. I thought maybe it was signed by Buzz Aldrin.  That SOB was charging $600 for his autograph at Spacefest last weekend.
