I’m now a semi-former luddite

So I ordered a cell phone today.  It will be free after the mail in rebate and $35 a month unlimited everything is cheaper that the land line I have and it will have caller ID and all that.

I’m not sure how I feel about this.  I am the genetic mutant in a long line of people who like to sit around and talk on the phone, as well as nosy parkers who feel what you are doing is somehow their business.

  1. YaY!!!! I have to admit that when I saw those poor folks snowed-in in their cars on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago I thought of you without a cell phone!!! Naggity-naggity-nag, I know (but now I can stop) …
    The kitties here are reacting differently to the cold (Teddy is just sleeping), Simba is being a pain about wanting to go outside (even though his plants are now inside (?silly cat?) & Stumpy seems very worried, as though maybe we haven’t noticed the change in the weather or something …
    Be really really careful tomorrow (& Friday, if you even go in to work) and remember to avoid bridges!

    • Everyone here has been predictable for the most part — except — wait for it — pups ate TWO — I said TWO bowls of kibbles before begging for cookies.

      The kitchen sink is only dribbling a bit of water, but the bathroom faucets are still working.

      Boss lady wants me to download some VPN software onto my home computer so I can post an update on the website about Friday and the weather. She doesn’t want a bunch of Saudis and Venezuelans out on the roads trying to get to school Friday morning. With how things are shaking out, I wouldn’t be surprised it everything shut down tomorrow afternoon.

      I feel that if I am here, I can deal with whatever comes, but if I have to trudge to work, just to find out that it’s closed would be a replay of the last time they made us full timers fight the flood while the bosses sit cozy at home dictating from their laptops.

      BAAHHHHH enough with that.

      I can only hope that the little OKs are all huddled together. I’ll get up early to give them lots of food and non-frozen water. The orchid in the front yard looks bad, as does the butterfly plant that suffered so last March.

      FUCK. 1 to 3 inches of snow? FUCK.

      I wonder if it’s all too late to do anything about this. Obama has had too much to deal with and too many sniping at him. And the know-nothings just keep rolling along.

      Makes me sick.

      Where the hell is Perry?

  2. p.s. cool video …

  3. 2 bowls? those crazy unpredictable pups …
    you can always think of the phone as the moment when you drew a line and said ‘here, but no further’ … and you are doing it more for others than for yourself …
