How easy is it to type on? Could I take it to New Zealand for a few months and use it for writing and blogging? I'm so far from an Apple store here that I have to wait until I am stateside for a visit in July to even see one.

YEA! Good for you!

The Chuckles the Clown episode is indeed a classic, although seriously cringe-inducing (I have always disliked the kind of humor that is based on embarrassment).

Enjoy your gadget :).

Elizabeth-- You could definitely use it for blogging, especially if you get the little wireless keyboard or the keyboard dock. As for regular writing, the jury's still out. I haven't figured out how basic word processing/printing would best be done. I imagine there's a way, I just haven't figured it out yet. (If you do, let me know!)

Oh, I loved Alice back in the day!

I'm trying to stay away from all new gadgets. Therefore have my fingers in my ears and yelling lalalalalal ... while still reading your post!

I was also surprised by how heavy it was. I checked out my friend's, and while I am a little envious, I'm still not quite sold. I feel like something like that, I'd, well, want to HOLD it a lot. And you can't exactly do that. Hopefully you've got a nice little stand so you don't snap your wrists off :-).

It is incredibly beautiful and can do all kinds of cool things. I like the digital book feature a LOT more than I expected to.

Enjoy your time getting to know it!

I bought the ipad and am in love! Which apps are your favorite? I love the e-reader on the ipad so much more than the kindle!

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
