I got a new phone today! YAY! Mine was ok, and only a year old (though I got it used) but it had started acting up. It would sometimes just decide not to ring, which was quite unfortunate, especially when people really need to get ahold of me and aren’t just telemarketers or whatever. Then this morning it did something really bizarre involving not ringing on my end but ringing on the other end, and then when Janelle (as it was her that I was calling) picked up, she heard nothing, and I couldn’t hear her talk either…. so I decided that since my “new every two” thing with Verizon was up, I’d pick out a new phone. I was going to order online, but then we had to go out to get a present for Janelle’s brother’s birthday, so we just stopped at the Verizon store on the way and I got this!
It flips open and there’s a really nice proper qwerty keyboard and a relatively large screen.
The salesman, as usual, tried to get me to buy every single bell and whistle the store had on hand. He only convinced me of one- the silicone jacket. I’m clumsy, ok?

It’s really a neat phone. The buttons on the outside are plenty big (a big plus after the teeeeeeny lil ones on my old Samsung) and it has fabulous sound. The inside keyboard is laid out well and has good sized buttons as well. The camera is pretty nice, too- 2.0 megapixels- so you guys might end up seeing photos taken with that if I forget to bring my camera with me places (which is common).
I got to the end of the repeat and started the next, today, on the wrap. I hope to get half done with this repeat by bedtime.
Still loving this yarn and this pattern. Sadly the yarn is a little abrasive and it’s cutting a nice little rut in my pinky, because I use it to tension the yarn as I knit. Thus I have to take a few more breaks than I’d like. I still have hopes of mailing this thing next Saturday, though at this rate it’ll probably be a few days after that.
Anyone watch Puppy Bowl V? I did- it wasn’t quite as cute/funny as Puppy Games this past summer, but still quite adorable.
