step away from the electronics

Once again, I've been a bad bad blogger. So many reasons, none of which you really give a damn about, so I won't go there. Things have been happening around here, mainly with electronics.

So let's talk about electronics. The fun, yummy, pink phone kind, to be exact. My beloved HTC smartphone found the hard side of the floor the other day and died a horrible death. No biggie really. With the three kids (none of which have actually ever hurt my phone, it's always me) I have the insurance, so I knew what to expect with the insurance replacement.

or so I thought.

Man oh man, what a pain. First, the "upgrade" phone was a complete POS. HATED it. I could not get rid of it fast enough. My breaking point though, was trying to check my email. 20 minutes later, TEARS, and still no email, I gave up. That experience was made even more horrible when Peter walked in on me. "Are you crying? Michelle, it's a PHONE!"

yeah pal, BUT IT'S AN EXPENSIVE PHONE THAT DOESN'T GET MY EMAIL AND I HAVE TO GET MY EMAIL RIGHT NOW OR THE WORLD WILL IMPLODE ON ITSELF AND WE WILL ALL DIE BEFORE I KNOW WHO TAGGED ME TODAY ON FACEBOOK!!!!

Clearly, I'm insane.

After much running around checking on every new phone on the market and comparing rate plans, I landed on the G1 from T-mobile. THIS PHONE ROCKS PEOPLE. I expect it will get up and make me breakfast tomorrow, it's that good.



Like the iphone, there are a million applications you can download. and believe me, I've been downloading. yummy...i love downloading. One of the first things was a set of wallpapers. This little guy was my first pic. Just look at him, is he not the cutest thing ever?!?? I dare you to frown while looking at him. OMG, i love him.



Another app I downloaded was PicSay. It's this cute photo editor where you can add silly graphics and props and crazy stuff. I took the liberty of "enhancing" the already goofy picture of Peter in his fake glasses. Then, I added it in my Five.

he's super hot!

You are hilarious. Enjoy your phone! I am waiting anxiously for March 23, when my plan renews, so I can get a new phone. I've never been so ready for an upgrade!

Oh no that little lizard thing is to die for!!!

Since you are so electronic saavy, I need you to tell me how to link your real blog on my blog! I have your old one on there and have to click on your "I've moved." everytime so I can see what's new with you!

Congrats on the new phone!! I hope you are feeling better.

Hey cous', you do realize I designed a great many things for the Android UI used on the T-Mobile G1, and even did the keyboard mapping layout on the physical keyboard. :) Currently I'm working an on-screen keyboard (soon to be released). Glad you're enjoying it. To bad I didn't know about your purchase before hand. I could have gotten you a Friends and Family discount. Love, Jeff

Did you notice that your photo of your phone actually looks more orange than pink? I'm just sayin'

nope, sure didn't kaelene. but that might have been due to do rose colored glasses I've put on since obtaining my lovely new phone :)
