My wonderful wife, making up for last years Christmas gift debacle (which consisted of a travel steamer, and an alarm clock), gave me a Zune Christmas Morning.  She had heard me "mention" (several times) how bad I wanted one.  I couldn't wait to get it up and running, so off to the computer I went, leaving a few unopened presents in my wake. 

It was charged and fully synched just in time to go to my parents for Christmas Brunch.  Having my entire family there, I couldn't wait to show it off.  3 of my nieces had just recieved video Ipods and were seated at the table comparing and admiring their new toys.  I calmly walked in, wished everyone a Happy Holidays and placed my Zune in the center of the table and walked away.  It wasn't more than 2 minutes before all three of my nieces were gathered around the Zune and admiring the larger screen, crisp picture, "awesome" graphics, and cool brown color.  After I explained how the wireless worked, they started takling about how cool it would be if THEY could exchange songs on their ipods.  Needless to say, my sister and sister-in-law were not very happy with me OR my Zune.  The next three hours my nieces fought over who got to use it next. All the while their new ipods sat discarded on a nearby endtable, and I was given more dirty looks than I could count.  When it came time to clean up, my sister sarcastically asked me if my fancy new toy knew how to do dishes.  Not, yet, but maybe with the next software update!! Wink

I couldn't wait to go home and have it to myself for a while.  The "while" turned out to be about 5 hours.  My wife called me downstairs about 10 times but finally gave up and went to bed in a huff.  So to sum it all up, my new Zune ended up giving me one angry sister, one even angrier sister-in-law, three jealous nieces, and one lonely neglected wife.  Thanks for the best Christmas ever!!  Grin

"How my zune ruined christmas", i can see it now, blockbuster smash, as big as a christmas story, or miracle on 34th street.

Thanks everyone.  I thought that it was pretty funny myself.  My sister made the mistake of even telling my niece that she looked at the Zune and almost got it for her, but, "You told me you wanted an Ipod.".  It was kind of sad to see that look of defeat knowing she was so close to Zunedom.
