That's right, bitches, I won it! See, you may or may not remember me talking about my department seeking to adopt a new handbook; well, even if you don't remember, that's okay: I'll elaborate. Textbook publishers are essentially to college professors what drug reps are to doctors or crack dealers are to crackheads -- they all try to push their product.
Well, it's like a feeding frenzy between publishers and their reps around here lately, and yesterday, one of the publishers hosted a book fair/luncheon in our department and was raffling off prizes. And, well, I'm sure you can guess that I won one of the raffle prizes -- the shuffle!
Now, my husband is against iProducts like Amy Winehouse is against rehab, but he has to accept the fact that I won one, and now I can finally have the iProduct I've been dreaming of. Granted, this kinda sucks because I will need to download iTunes and re-buy or re-download much of my music, but I'm so excited to use this little puppy. It's so pretty, isn't it?
