Weekly Events!Well, I've not yet had a chance to put together the Mock Bus Crash Pictures, but at this rate it would appear as though either tomorrow (Saturday) or Sunday night will be the night.
This week I finally broke down and got a new cell phone. My previous one had been in a state of 'pseudo-brokenness' since mid-January when I accidently broke the antenna piece off (and the remainder of the phone went into three pieces into a large snowbank). Although I swapped cases (took the insides to my phone and the case of an existing (nearly identical model)), the reception was never the same. After missing two calls while at work (which shouldn't have happened since I know I can get (although sometimes a bit weak) a usable signal at the office), I said enough of it and finally went out.
As far as phones go, they all essentially work the same. This one (of course) has nicer features, a larger screen, and is a color-screen phone. There are many very nice features to the phone, and thus far I've enjoyed it. A really nice feature is that it weighs about 1/3 of the old one, and is a little less than half the size. So, I've managed to go from a Pinto to a Cadillac...at least when it comes to phones.
I guess the most important thing -- I get decent reception and can make/receive calls from it while at the office (which was the whole point).
Aside from that, things are going well. Starting to slow down even more (after Easter at least one more evening per week will be slightly more free)...and all-in-all, life is good.
Until next time...
