Happy Dogs on Thursday, little friday and Thankful Thursday! Don’t miss the post on the girls’ blog about doggy sign language.
Monday: Turned in my beloved, 2 yr. old, antiquated Nextel Blackberry. A few hours later, a Sprint HTC something ‘Droid based showed up. Touchscreen, lots of apps already in place, life seemed good.
Tuesday: Discovered new friend STILL won’t fit in a standard smart phone case. The Nextel Blackberry was too thick – due to that direct connect bit – and this thing is too tall, probably by a good 1/2″.
Wednesday: Demoted new friend to “business partner” status. The sucker NEEDS charging every 20 hours or so, and that’s with no real usage other than continued set-up. Filed to dissolve our partnership when I had to – literally – put said device in the window to get even that pathetic, pixilated mess to transfer from the 8 megapixel camera within to Flickr.
Thursday: Is it Friday yet? Our cell phone contract man (aka: The Knight, Chief, Chief Knight, etc.) is meeting with Verizon tomorrow. This time, we’re requiring a demo phone and smart phone overnight to test the signal. Did I mention that we can’t even use the cells at our desks? Or that Uncle can’t even get out in roam from his home, all of 15 minutes from the shop?
But I am thankful that I’m griping about cell service and sad signals that inhibit my ability to preserve doggy cuteness and to blog. Some people very dear to me are wondering if Washington can get it together so that they still have a paycheck coming on Monday morning.
Did you realize that our military deployed in war zones won’t be paid for their work if they can’t resolve this budget situation? I don’t want to make this a political discussion, and I sure hope I’m over-simplifying this, but it’s very upsetting.
So, isn’t it a blessing to be knotted up over the unexpected craptastic coverage we have with Sprint phones, vs. the Sprint-Nextel stuff we’ve used for years? Or over the ever-so-stressful (HA!) search for the perfect handbag? Hem.
Distract me with the wows in your life, please.
