My old timer died several months ago. (Frank would argue that the old timer still works - it just doesn't make any sound when your time is up. This is fine, if you are looking at the display when the time is up, but not much help when you are down the hall folding towels.)
I've been using my iPod touch as a timer but I live in constant fear of sloshing something on it and ruining it and then I would never run again because running without listening to R.E.M. or Rhett Miller is just no fun at all.
I love my new kitchen timer. Thanks, Santa!
