So recently my iPod died (it was a good iPod and lived a nice long life). So in the event of the death of my iPod I soon picked up a new one! The brand new iPod nano's just came out with video capabilities as well as radio among other things, which is why picked up a blue one and the thing has not left my side since. Poppy (the hamster) has become one of my first victims in the testing of the video cameras so here it is.....
A video directed by Lindsey Bivens titled Meet Poppy!!
(Yes...the video is dorky but inbetween baking, studying and sleeping I gotta do something!)
