Or is it popular tantrum? Anyway, after years of being hounded by our families because dialup blocked their phone calls, tonight we have DSL. Now we can be annoyed by "anonymous" callers whether we're online or not. However now we can also download you tube videos faster than they play. Is faster better? So far, so good.
We also have a new cell phone, thoughtfully provided by our cell phone company with the help of a lovely young lady in India with not the best grasp of English. Hopefully with this one, we can phone people from within the house instead of being forced to make our calls while standing outside on the driveway. It's a tiny thing, I could hide it in the palm of my hand. Trouble is, I really do not like tiny phones. I want a cool Dick Tracy watch phone or a Star Trek TNG-like communicator, not this weird and dinky thing that makes me feel like I'm talking to myself. The Star Trek thingie would make me feel like I'm talking to myself too, but I wouldn't mind because it would double as a nice piece of jewelry. But then again, I want a lot of things. No, not a lot of things, just really cool things I need a man around to program for me. I knew there was a reason I've been married to an engineer for 29 years last Sunday. But no Blue Tooth please. I prefer my teeth the shade they are now.
