my new toy


If you have spent any time around me in last two years, you have probably picked up on the fact that I have really wanted an iphone. And I promise its not just because its hip, or because all my friends seem to have one. Okay, its mostly not because of those things.

There are actually four legitimate reasons I have wanted an iphone:

1) to always have access to the internet. everywhere.
2) to always have a camera handy.
3) to be able to have my music in one place...instead of 8 different CD storage cases sprawled out between the back seats of two different cars.
4) to have my pictures on me at all times, especially now that I have a son to proudly show off.

Now, with that said...I got a new phone over the weekend. And it wasn't an iphone. Nope. Instead I purchased a Blackberry Pearl. And I love it. The phone fulfills all four of the requirements above...AND it was much cheaper.

My old phone had died and it wasn't coming back. Betsy's phone was one of the oldest things we owned and had been chewed up years ago by our dog when she was still a puppy. So, since our contract was done...we decided to re-up and get two really nice phones for very little money. Phone companies love to do that. But whatever, now I have a new toy to play with it.

I can already feel my thumb getting bigger.

ummm, he's been wearing the same jeans for 3 years and taking meticulous care of his shoes in the small hopes that he could someday afford an iphone, which he couldn't, so he got a blackberry...with a huge rebate. did you miss the "really cheap" line?

I don't think your new phone is working. Your number hasn't come up on my phone in a couple of weeks. Must be broken. I'd take it back and get one that works...
