Yeah..I've got it on my.....erm
Been struggling to find a word when engaged in the usual conversations on music, movies, tv etc.
For example, I say to a friend colleague/friend/spouse/sister/parent/neighbour/passing dog, "Have you heard Some Girls by Racey?". They respond in the affirmative "Yes Luv, got it on my iPod, ain't it just the greatest!".
As you may know, I have a slight allergy to Apple's wondergadge. Don't like iTunes proprietry policy. I'm also not a big fan of the controls and menus set up and the fact that the Video model won't play divx.
So if I say, "Yes Luv, got it on my Creative Zen Vision: M, ain't it just the greatest!" I usually have to have the following conversation:
"You've got it on your what?"
"my Creative Zen Vision: M"
"What's one of them then ?"
"A Portable Media Player....you know a device that plays music videos etc"
"Oh ..you mean an iPod"
Anyway, in the spirit of swimming against the tide, I've decided to call my Zen Vision: M a Hoover, and will refer to it as such from now on.
