The weekend before last I rode out to visit Ronya in Kananaskis and bring her some lunch. On the way back I got caught in torrential rain storm… twice. Why twice? Because I missed the turn in Turner Valley, drove through the storm, wound up back in Kananaskis country and had to drive back through the storm to get back to Calgary.
Throughout all this my weather “resistant” pocket on the left side of my jacket wasn’t quite sealed properly and my phone was in it. By the time I got home the pocket was a swimming pool. My former cell phone is now a tiny little fish bowl with it’s screen half filled with water. You can turn it over and watch the water slosh around if you like. That’s about the only thing it’s good for these days.
So I went out and bought myself a new cell phone… yet again. This time I bought a Blackberry.
It sucks. It sucks horribly. It sucks so horribly I immediately went out and bought a different phone again. This one, however, works wonderfully, even if it does run on Windows. I try to overlook that as best I can.
The gist of this whole entry is… I no longer have anyone’s phone numbers. Well, I do have Ronya and Diannes’, but that’s it.
So, if you want me to have your phone number please leave me a reply here. All comments are screened so I’ll be the only one to see them.
Hopefully I won’t be doing this again for at least another year or two. *crosses fingers*
