I'm So Happy

It's the best year ever for many reasons, but partly because we now have about a bizillion participants in the April Blogging Challenge. Check out the sidebar at the right. You'll see we now have challenge participants that I've never met (Shannon), challenge participants that are six years-old (Shef), and challenge participants that haven't exactly given me permission to link them (Mary).

Today I spent a lot of time reading the challenge blogs. I've also read quite a bit of commentary on the iPad, which I'm sure you know is being released tomorrow by Apple.

Here's what happened to me: I read and heard a couple of positive reviews and now I want an iPad so bad I could spit. The negative reviews didn't phase me because those haters don't know what the heck they're talking about.

I want the "invisible operating system"!

I want "media to come alive"!

I want "the future of computing"!

I'm pretty susceptible to advertising and testimonial. This works against me in many ways. I probably shouldn't have admitted this weakness to the world right here, right now; but in the name of this great challenge, I had no choice.

I want one too. V. Badly.

It looks unreal. I'm a sucker, too.

Also this blogging challenge is seriously the best thing ever. I'm embarrassingly excited to read everyone's posts everyday. Plus, there's nothing like guaranteed commenting to get fuel my blogging fire.
