But now it's almost 100% true!
Yes, my mastery of all media is ratcheting up another notch. Ahem. There are a few of you out there *cough Gubby* who WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS *cough Marcy* but I did it. I just got confirmation that my new, my first ever, cell phone has shipped.
No, Marcy, it's not a Jitterbug. Now you'll have to find something else to tease me about, like maybe chicken feathers on my lawn, for example. In case you think I'm kidding, I'm not.
No, Gubby, it isn't one of these.

And Gubby? You just go ahead and tease me about ANYTHING because I have photos of your prodigious facial hair, Rasputin. Like money in the bank.
Looky, isn't it pretty?

At least it is in the advertisement. I went with this model for two reasons. (I know what you're thinking and it's not because it's purple. I would prefer orange.) One, pretty much all of the phones had that big stupid circle button that I don't like (this one does, too) and the only way around that seems to be a smart phone, which I don't need (yet, anyway). So, if I have to get a phone that has a feature I don't like, I may as well get one that has a display that I WILL like. And two, the qwerty keyboard, in case I start to like this texting stuff. This all made sense in my head, somehow, after spending many, many days weeks months looking, reading, thinking, and interrogating everyone I know.
I expect the phone any day now. If you want to call me to prove to yourself that I really can use a cell phone, e-mail me and I just might give you my cell number, unless you're selling something, in which case forget it.
Please feel free to welcome me to the 1990s. Next up: iPod.
