Sometimes technology rocks

I got a new phone.

Now, if you know me, you know I hate change when it comes to technology. It's hard for me to learn gadgets, especially those with tiny buttons that aren't clearly marked with English words - symbols often confound me.

I hate reading manuals, mostly because half the time they don't make sense.

However, when DH told me I could upgrade my cell phone to a new one and I saw this - I had to have it. Mostly because even though the picture shows it in Rose Pink, it secretly also comes in Awesome Metallic Purple [at least that's what I call the color, though I couldn't find a picture of it.]

This phone is cool because not only does it have a wicked cool display on the front that shows through the metallic case, it only took me 15 minutes to reprogram my entire address book [a project that spanned several years with my old phone].

It's the little things in life that make me happy. Metallic purple cell phones and new technology that actually is easier to use than the old stuff.

I've actually had a waiter laugh at me when he saw my cell phone. It's not THAT old and besides it makes and receives calls and seems to be virtually indestructible (which is a huge plus for someone who is prone to dropping it).

Okay, now I'm going to have to see your cell phone and find out why it's so funny. It's not one of those '80s ones that's bigger than a car, is it?
