The Good The Bad And The Smart Phone
God, I haven't been here in so long. This has been a busy week. I didn't even have time to put up a 10Things List and they're so good they're burning a hole in my pocket. Next week.
I was bursting with news to tell but got to reading all your posts that I have missed out on and I remember why I love blogging.
Not to rehash my life over and over but to dive into yours for a change of perspective. Refreshing.
Denise of ChezDanisse had this to say about the importance of electronics in her life. And I sit here nodding my head in agreement as I clutch my new smart phone in my right hand.
I was rather enjoying my 6 year old clamshell phone with no whistles or bows. But it was unable to hold a full charge for more than 8 hours. And I had to beg people not to send me pics over the phone cause they all looked like postage stamps. Cancelled postage stamps. I was about to duct tape a pair of reading glasses to it when the back fell off and broke. Yesterday.
Clenching my teeth, I entered the mall.
Two hours and a good chunk of tax return dollars later I stepped out of the mall fully accessorized and "technically' able to make a call, send a text, take a picture, read my blog, find a restaurant or respond to an email from a bride.
So far I've jumped into the sky whenever I've heard the new ring....what the hell is that I wonder....turned off the internet, cause wouldn't I rather look out the window of the bus at spring and eavesdrop on people's conversations then read my emails? Wouldn't I rather saunter down the street stopping to smell the daffodils? Hell yeah.
However, I just answered a call and after I took a minute to play around and found the book icon. A gentle touch and I was able to download Wuthering Heights. Does this mean I will never be without reading material again? Never have to sit in a car while GG runs into the bank or the grocery store fiddling my thumbs? I'm offered Bronte? Sold.
As God is my witness this is one smart phone.
Now if I can just learn to use it.....
