[insert nonsensical keyboard mash here]

It’s time for the not-quite-semi-yearly “Claudia feels materialistic” blog post!

(Note: I don’t actually need any of this, I just like to look at pretty things.)

Ready? GO!

iPhone 5s. I’m on the fence about getting a smart phone (not any time soon; when I can afford it, that is). I want one because they’re cool and useful, but I don’t want one because Claudia + constant access to the internet = disaster AND because I would probably damage it somehow within a month or so of getting it. Even so, I’m keeping my eye on the iPhone 5s as an option. I want the iPhone 4 because I love the shape, but no one sells them anymore and the software probably doesn’t even update anymore, either (that’s happening with my 2012 iPod, at least). So if I DO get a smart phone, the iPhone 5s is where it’s at.


The new iPod Touch. I don’t need one (and hopefully won’t for a long while), but I’ve had my current iPod since February 2012. Probabilistically, with all the walking I do (I use it as a pedometer and keep it in my back pocket), it’s going to get broken one of these days. Which would be sad. But if/when that happens, I’d like to get one of the new models. Probably in silver (since I’d just be covering it in a case, anyway). Of course, if I get an iPhone before that, I’d probably just use that as my pedometer, though I’d be really paranoid about breaking it.


I guess the one thing on this list I kind of need is a new desktop computer. Mine died like a month ago—which is okay, considering it survived like 7 moves around the continent and is old enough to still have Vista on it—but I need a new one. Preferably one that can run Fallout 4 once it comes out.

Fractal socks!


Rainbow socks! My old ones got holey a long time ago and I need replacements.


Abstract socks!


These two books on the history of statistics.

The end!

  1. For a long time I didn’t get a smart phone for pretty much the same reasons as you. Now I finally have an iPhone 5S. I like it a lot. One thing to consider is that if you have an iPhone you don’t really also need an iPod, the phone can do everything the iPod does and more. For people like us that have a lot of music I would suggest looking for either the 32G or the 64G phone. Costs a bit more, but overall less than two separate devices and its nice to have only one thing in your pocket.


    1. I’d be super paranoid about breaking an iPhone; much more so than an iPod. Half the time, my current phone is just flung in the front pocket of my backpack, which is something I couldn’t do with an iPhone. We’ll see once I get the money to make a decision!


  2. I wouldn’t get a smart phone for years for the same reasons, but I finally did get an iPhone 5s and I really like it. One thing that I’d say is that the iPhone can do all the things that the iPod can do and more so you don’t really need both the iPhone and iPod. For people like us that have a lot of music I suggest getting the 32G or 64G phone, it is a little more expensive, but still costs less than two devices.

    P.S. I apologize for all the anonymous comments you have been getting lately, I kept forgetting to log in.
