But today a spokesman puts the vicious rumor to rest. “Not true, the President-elect uses an iPod,”
That hasn’t stopped the merriment within the community
and WHAT (you might ask) is so wrong with owning a zune?
That did it! If Chuck and Morgan were “dissing” the zune,
Obama is probably breathing a serious sigh of relief right now, and here’s why: I am pleased to be the first to tell you that a new zune gate 2008 has just exploded onto the scene! (phew, good thing it happened today instead of tomorrow, zune gate 2009 doesn’t sound nearly so fabulous. I think it’s the rhyming that gives it a little extra somfin’ somfin’)
I woke up this morning, snuggled with Kort, drank some super juice, grabbed my zune, and got ready to jam out while I unloaded the dishwasher, but what did my zune do? Nothing. It’s in a coma. Maybe even dead...I can’t be sure. So, I call the hubs in for an examination and he is befuddled (ew, what kind of an awful word is befuddled? I know, right?). He immediately gets on-line to trouble shoot, and guess what: I’m not alone. All of the zunes all over the world are d.e.a.d! Dead I tell ya! (cue pandemonium) They’re calling it the Z2K of 09, and I (meaning me, moi, yours truly, the Lola girl herself) get to be a part of it!
One can’t help but wonder, is this a sinister, maniacal plot on the part of the evil apple corporation to take out their fiercely driven competitor once and for all? Everyone knows that it was only a matter of months before zune completely overtook the ipod in sales! What, with their incredibly stylish, innovative black BRICK design and myriad color choices ranging from white, brown, black, pitch black, blackest black, and dark dark dark charcoal, why would anyone even look at an ipod?
And to think, all these months I’ve hung my head in shame and spent countless hours cropping the zune out of our family vacation photos before posting them– only to find out that the ipod was totally jealous of me and my incredible zune all along…fancy that.
Okay, what this really means is that Zune (translation: Microsoft) totally messed up, and do all of you smug, self-righteous, superior ipod owners know what THAT means?
It means that Bill Gates (the big man, the head honcho, the richest man in the universe, the coolest guy I know) owes ME something! How many of you can say that? (ipods are cooler my eye!)Okay, sure, Billy Boy DID send me a rather lovely fruit basket over the holiday season, and the chocolates and flowers he sent last Valentine’s Day were pretty much *to die* but now I expect to be getting a brand-spanking-new, black, bricky zune from my favorite Billionaire. It’s so great! This Christmas season just keeps on giving!
Hope everyone has an awesome new year!
I know I will.
(Especially now that the huge zune secret of 2008 is behind me. Phew! )
Here's an update on the actual zune situation. Looks like no free zune for Lola. But that's okay. I didn't really think that's what would happen anyway. It was fun to be sassy about it for awhile anyway!
