The horror that was New Years Eve

One minute there was laughing, dancing, carrying on and in an instant that changed.

I can barely stand to recall the scene it was so horrifying.

5 year olds. light sabers.chaos.spilled wine.

And then there was you,dear Zune, a casualty of the melee. Knocked to the ground. Landing in the puddle of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. I rushed to your aid but clearly wasn't fast enough. I tried. Believe me I tried. But then you were gone.

Oh my Dear Zune, in the short time we had together I had fallen into such deep heavy love with you. I had such plans for our future. Workouts, cuddle time, you saving me from having to listen to the ridiculousness of conversations of others on the bus and train each day. My heart aches at what will never be.

*sigh* RIP Zune.

You'll be missed.

oh balls! :( Mateo left his ipod on an airplane when we flew home from Chicago. SO then he took mine. I sorta know the feeling. Happy NY girlie. We lasted at the casino until 9 the party animals that we are. =/

If it's a 30MB Zune, there was a massive software failure, perhaps it was that here's a link on more information on how to fix it if that's the issue:

I don't think Zune's have souls, so don't worry to much about it.

Lollie said...

am sooooo out of the loop...what the eff is a Zune?

I think that you need an IPOD. Mine is like magic...it has endured a lot...maybe because of that plastic pink case by BELKIN that Mr. T had the foresight to put on it.

I think this is an excuse for you to go shopping!

Oh, no... how horrible! I can't imagine life without my MP3 player.

RIP Zune.

That sucks!! Did you scoff and laugh at the teller who rang it up when they asked you if you wanted the special warranty?? I would have. And then I would have kicked myself in the ass as hard as I could muster after the wine bath.

Also - did you try it again after it was dried out? Boy's gameboy went in the lake last year and we didn't turn it on for a few days and it works just fine, but if you tried to turn it on while it was wet, it may have fried the ciruits.

Anyway, so sorry. My ipod is almost a few year old and I'm so scared that it's going to go soon. I've heard of EPIC FAILS on the fifth gens after a couple years, so I'm kinda waiting for it. Darn me and not backing up all the music on it.

i seem to have misplaced/lost my special ipod friend, so i feel your pain! sorry for your loss!

WM said...

Lollie - that's what being a new mom'll do to 'ya! It's Microsoft's MP3 player.

An O'dat Kim, mine was the 4gb, so it was simply abuse by a 5 year old that caused its demise , rather then the computer glitch...but thanks for thinking of me.

Nooooooo! If it makes you feel any better, I killed my i-pod a few months ago. Well, kinda sort of on purpose to buy a new shiny one. I'm sorry about your loss.

I bought an iphone and two weeks later it fell on the floor and shattered....I'm still using it? I can't afford to fix it.

Actually, I was just reading that all Zune worldwide went bonkers at midnight... maybe it was destiny :-(

Happy New Year. Get a nano instead. It comes in purple!

My beloved Samsung Alias cell phone suffered a similar fate two nights ago when, in a rush to get into Subway and then home again, Alias dropped out of my purse and into the snow and by the time I figured it out and high tailed it back to the Subway parking lot, she was dead...crushed, run over, stepped on. Sad. I'm thinking small memorial service. Just a few friends.

Junior Mayhem has a light saber so I can only imagine the horror!

I hope you can replace your dear friend soon!
