Sadly, not in the greatest of ways, but at least I got my internet working this morning. I feared/fumed that it was our nefarious local cable company once again...the internet goes out here a LOT...but it was just my stupid computer. I'm starting to worry about the computer. I think in the next year it needs to go bye-bye. I can usually sense the disturbance in the Force when they're starting to lose their will to live:-)
Anyway, this will be a short-ish post today. I've had bronchitis for a week, from which I'm sloooowly recovering (with the aid of lots of medication), and my sinuses finally sent me into a full-blown migraine last night, which I'd been concerned was trying to happen. One of my eyes went numb. At first, I wanted to chalk this up to the fact that I had to go to both my youngest kid's kindergarten "moving up night", followed almost immediately by my oldest child's "growing up night" (she is in 5th grade, it was a bunch of moms, and it was sponsored by Kotex...yeah, good times). Sadly, no. Mah head, it simply decided it was time to a'splode.
The only bright spot of the evening, in between the eye numbness of impending doom and the actual head explosion, was that my husband has finally gotten bored enough with the things he normally plays with at work to have decided to get the both of us actual, real live 21st century phones. With internet, even. Woo! I realize how sad this is...I'm like the only person I know who didn't have a phone that could run the world. I had never played Angry Birds (fixed!). I had never had an app for, erm, anything (also fixed!). So when I can look at the screen for longer than a few minutes at a time, I will be all about setting up my shiny new iPhone. Oh yes...as an iTunes junkie, I kind of have to have the pretty Apple phone. Brian got a Droid. I think mostly because when you do various things, it says, in the cool robotic voice, "Droid!". No, really, that may be his favorite part. I fear for his work, though...he really, really likes Angry Birds.
So! I will be able to tweet and facebook and whatnot from National this year while I am wandering around semi-lost in the enormous hotel! Cool, huh?
Anyway, today let's talk technology, because I have no freaking clue what I'm doing with this phone. Are there, uh, app-type thingies you would recommend? Any good games? Because really, this IS a toy;) I am off to try and work now, but will check in later!
