Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything


April 27th, 2004

thought I was just either unpopular or enjoying a bout of peace and quiet but ... @ 10:39 pm

I wanted to make a phone call tonight and looked around for my cel phone because the other phone was being used. I had no idea where my phone was because I thought it might be where I thought I left it last, on the table. It hadn't rung in a while (about five days) so ... THe phone was neither in the bedroom nor on the table, but then a thought struck me and ... Oh yeah, I'd been carting it around with me in my walker bag, ready for me to pick it up as I traipse around the house. I took it out, thinking could just make my call, but no... it wouldn't turn on, wouldn't even offer forth a squawk to let me know it was indeed alive. "Oh no," I thought to myself. "I've probably missed lots and lots of calls, probably lost a million dollars, maybe the Publisher's Clearinghouse called me. or, maybe my friends and/or professor's care and actually called me. Once the phone was reset and I got rid of the "invalid sim" message, U found the latter to be the case. All this time I'd been carrying my phone with me, wishing it to ring, and because the electronics in it were hopelessly screwed up, people (I have no idea how many at this point) have been calling me and texting me. Now they all probably think I'm a totalloser (well, Iknow I am really), because I haven't returned their calls. I even missed ruadh_innsean's birthday because of it.

Never fear. Once I get done writing this I'm going to, since phone rates are cheap now, spend the probably hours it will take me to check my messages and respond to them all. Arg, technology really sucks when you depend on it so much. This sure shows me how screwed up our world has become. Makes me want to time transplant myself back to midieval Ireland, at least in both times there'd be something familiar tome, Celtic Music. There, there'd be no cel phones t tie me too and friends toanswer to if I became untied to my cel phone. Who knows in old Celtic times, they had various other annoyances. Must research that :).

Sounds like me and my hard drive, but I got a new one now and it works. Hey, jaws isn't reading the comment fields in your journal, well it does but it seems to be reading them as something else. Just thought I'd tell ya.

It reads them as something else because I use s2 and I mean them to be something else.
