Quick TABS to Joyful Stuff

Sunday, April 18, 2010

I was babysitting and they brought their iPad !!

Eleven year old Troy brought along his I-pad tonight (I'm babysitting he and his little sister Tira for a few hours) and he let me play with it.  Put it this way, he sat with my laptop computer and cleaned up the registry, while I played with his I-pad.  TOO COOL (the kid AND the Ipad).

It does a lot of neat things but basically it's just a LARGE I-Pod. You can watch YouTube videos on it.  So of course I watched some of mine!

If you ever get your hands on an I-pad, watch my videos too.  Please?

Anyway, the kids kept me from painting today.  Good Kay, blame the children.  But I did need to go to the grocery store before they arrived, or we'd have had a pretty boring time.  As it is we did hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, baked cookies,

AND of course we played with their iPad.  
Overrated?  YES.  
Do I want one?  You Bet. 
Don't you?

But alas, Steve Jobs must wait for my money.  Maybe someday soon.  For now I'll just borrow the one that my friends have.  To play with and take pictures that are relative so that I can write about an Apple I-pad, and so when people search for the words Apple I-pad, maybe, just maybe, they'll end up here and see my blog and my painting, and remember that they love Bob Ross and The Joy of Painting.  And then they will follow my blog and watch me paint.

Hey just think when someone searches for Bob Ross AND I-Pad they might just get right here.  Someone try that and let me know if I come up in the first few listings ;)


btw  (4/20 update)  I just went to the Apple site and found out that the correct spelling of the I is 'i' so I should be writing iPad, iPod, etc.  I fixed the title of my blog post but left the other misspelled ones to make my point . . which is . . . i type too fast and the word iAnything SUCKS to type!  . . . But what was I doing at the Apple Store you ask?  OHHHHhhhh something very exciting for me and one of you too. Stay tuned.

Share the Joy, because Troy shared his Toy.     (duh)  Kay

Thanks Nen - I guess when you use a Google Blogger, they pick things up real quick !

I'm a little down right now on Apple. I had a really old iPod which I loved because it could hold 60Gb, even though it held nothing but music (which is all i need it for). Well, one day, just a few weeks ago, it died. I'm pretty sure it's the battery that's bad because it just won't recharge. I went to an Apple store only to find out that a new battery would cost me $70! A new iPod would run me $250. Either way, I'm stuck with all my music on an iPod that I can't use. Eventually, I'll have to work up the guts to spend the 70 bucks for a new battery, I guess. :(

OMG. I just read your giveaway post on FindItWinIt. The second you said you wanted an iPad sometime in the future, I just KNEW you would get it right away. Why? Because you can! lol.

So, magic words, huh? Abra-cadabra? Bibity-Bobity-Boo? Hocus pocus? Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (sp?)? Alla Peanut Butter Sandwiches? Open Sesame? I think I can? Please? ... and thank you for all the fun I'm having (and my prize!)

Besides, isn't that an expensive toy for an 11-year-old? I hope my kids don't ever think I can compete with that sort of thing!

Sorry to trouble you but, was there a Bob Ross quote in the blog header before? I liked it and had meant to copy it down but now I don't see. Or was it somewhere else? it was a longish quote.

Natalee - Google is AMAZING isn't it? and YES I saw Julie & Julia after I got this project started (I mean I KNEW about the concept, and that's why I thought about me and Bob ;) and I was so tickled to see it. My husband is just like their's. Very supportive and FUN ;)

Kay Zahn said...

Ayelet - Did you see I put those quotes back up. I didn't realize I had moved that down to the bottom of the page. Thanks for telling me.

Ayelet said...

Yes, thank you!

Ayelet said...

Yes, thanks. It's now in my favorite quotations on my FB profile :) So inspiring. And I hear his voice in my head every time I read it....
