Mandatory Phone Upgrade

My cell phone died today. When I say died, I mean it pretty much broke in half. I have a Motorola Razr, and now the top half is dangling from the bottom half by a wire.

I’m still trying to figure out how in the world that happened. When Joe called me this morning, I noticed a metal piece had come off the left side, but it still worked. Then, he tried calling me and the screen filled with blue lines and went black. After that, the top piece fell apart. It’s just crazy. I’ve never had any problems with this phone before, and I’ve *never* had a phone fall apart on me like this before. It’s a good thing Joe’s due for an upgrade. And now I have a pretty good excuse to use his upgrade! I was thinking about getting a Pantech Matrix. I think the sliding keyboards are neat, and it has a qwerty keyboard like the Blackberry and Blackjack but doesn’t seem as bulky. Plus, it has XM Radio and I can transfer music from ITunes onto it. I just wish it came in pink! I love how my Razr was bright pink.

However, I decided to get the LG Vu, and I’m so glad I did. It’s a touch screen, and it’s awesome. I absolutely love it. I got a pink case for it on ebay yesterday. I can’t wait for that to arrive.


I was going to get the Iphone, but since Joe’s line was the one able to be upgraded, we would have been charged twice as much as we are now for the Iphone plan. It was definitely more cost effective to wait until my line is due for an upgrade in April.

NaBloPoMo Begins

It’s November 1, and that’s means it’s the beginning of NaBloPoMo. NaBloPoMo now occurs every month, each with a different theme, but since November is the original month I decided that’s when I would do it each year. Let’s hope I can find something to talk about every day! November is always tricky because of Thanksgiving. We go to both of our parents’ houses each year, so finding a way to blog at my in-laws’ cabin could be difficult. Do any of you plan to participate in NaBloPoMo?
