My new and addictive toy...

Well, I did it. I broke down and bought a new toy this week. I really didn't need it and should have passed up the expense but I wanted to be like all the kids on the block and have one too. I got a new cell phone. The cell I had was a Razr, works perfectly well and I have no complaints other than I wanted to be like everyone else and have something I can't even begin to figure out.

I got a Blackberry. I figured if everyone was talking about them, and the President refused to give his up, then it must be the right one for me. I have to say it really is cool. I got the pink one to be extra cool and now I can't stay off the phone. I am texting like crazy (thank goodness for unlimited service)and sending photos, reading my email and even driving places just to use the GPS for directions. What is up with all that? I haven't spent this much time on a cell phone since I got one a few years ago. I can see now why the teens are always talking and texting. This toy is addictive and I don't even know how to run half the features yet. I can't wait for something to come up that I want to make a movie with sound; hey, did I mention it is an MP3 player and I can watch TV?

Okay, so I ask you, when does the honeymoon stop? I really do need to stay off the phone and only answer it when it rings because I am not getting everything done. This is embarrassing and I feel like I need the G3 Anonymous. I can just see me now at the meetings, I will be saying, "Hello, my name is Jeanne and I am addicted to a Blackberry".

  1. I read somewhere a few years ago that it takes about 3 months for the new to wear off. Be it a car, home, or cellphone. So have fun, the edge will wear off after a few months, and people tell you, "We don't have time to text..." LOL.
