Thing One: Phone Help
My phone contract is up very soon, and I have to make a decision on the new phone I’d like to get NOW. Trouble is, I get flustered and overwhelmed whenever I go to the phone store, because the employees start hovering with eerie, Manson-like smiles, and talking Nerdish to me. (What is this language you speak? I do not know!)
I currently have a Palm Treo, and while the phone itself works fine, most of its other features leave much to be desired. I, for instance, like to receive email when people send it to me, and not three hours later. I also enjoy NOT having my phone freeze up on me when I am
using it to read blogs on it during the day looking at very, very important documents. I’m picky like that.
Anyway, in descending order of importance, I'd primarily use my phone for: email, internet and actual phone usage. A camera is important too, because how else would we get photos like this? THE WORLD NEEDS TO SEE PICTURES OF FRUIT-LEGGINGS MAN!
I’ve narrowed the field somewhat, but the decision is still a big one, and comes down to this: iPhone or BlackBerry?
Do any of you have any of these phones? Which one(s)? Do you love it? Just like it? Want to hurl it out the nearest window, not even caring if you hit a pedestrian--WHO HAPPENS TO BE A BLIND NUN ON HER WAY TO FEED SICK BABIES--such is your abject hatred of the phone? These are the things I need to know. Help me! What phone should I get?
Thing Two: Fashion Help
My parents are being honored at an event on Sunday,which J and I are attending. In terms of dress code, I’m fairly certain that it’s black tie. (I, um, threw out the invitation already. Daughter of the Year!) We’ve known about this event forever, but it somehow sneaked up on me all the same, and --being 27 weeks pregnant--my fancy clothing options are somewhat limited. Once again, I have two choices here. The contenders are: Sexy Brown Lace Outfit (“SBLO”), or Classy, Conservative Black Outfit (“CCBO”).Here is SBLO:
"Fashion! Turn to the left..."
If chosen, I’d wear it with these shoes:
My other option, CCBO:
Oh, so you've noticed my pajama pants, have you? The skirt of this outfit is at the dry cleaners. It basically looks like the sleeve of the shirt and falls right above the knee. Oh, wait. Here's a (really shitty) picture of the whole outfit. Ah, the wonders of Google:
I honestly think SBLO is the prettier of the two, but it’s also springier, and considering that I’m still wearing my puffy down coat every day (DAMN YOU, WINTER! DAMN YOU TO HELL!), I don’t know if it’s seasonally appropriate yet. CCBO is totally workable, I think, and the advantage it has is that I would probably get a new pair of shoes to go with it. (But what color? Help, again!)
So, which phone? Which outfit?
C’mon people! I NEED YOU!
