I just watched my roommate hold her leftover corn cob (mostly removed of corn via her human teeth) so her dog could nibble the remnants off, exactly like people eat corn (except for the whole someone-else-having-to-hold-it-for-her part).

A random anecdote, perhaps, but it made me want to get with the digital age. Lately, lots of things have – lately I totally want to catch up with the rest of the world and get the following:

-a CD player for my car that actually plays burned CDs instead of just store-bought ones, sometimes, and badly

-an iPod – ’nuff said. I would love one o’ them.

-a digital camera/video thingy. I have seen so many things I wanted to take pictures of lately, and I have a crappy camera in my phone, but I only recently learned how to get pictures *out* of my phone, and even then, it costs like $4 every time I do so, and the pictures suck, and I don’t know how to send them anywhere other than another person’s phone. So if, for example, I wanted to take a picture of my roommate’s dog eating corn on the cob in an eerily human-like fashion, let alone upload a short videoclip of such activity, I would be hard-pressed to do so.

You see my dilemma, I trust. I was about to type “Bob Saget, eat my heart out!” but then I realized he probably doesn’t host America’s Funniest Home Videos anymore. Now I feel old on two counts, awesome. Three if you count that I seriously don’t know what you call a “digital video thingy” in tech-speak.
