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 :).

  • a short update

    The plan is to go to the beach this afternoon, but I'm not sure when. We don't have too much special planned besides that, but it's the last full day…

    I'm not sure what the plan is today, but we have done what, in my opinion, is the perfect vacation activity, slept in and veged out so far. I think…

    Well, we made it, finally! Everyone's up right now, but we're not doing anything so I'm writing. We got here last night, after several delays and…
