Of Sunday mornings and cell phones
Happy Sunday, everyone!

I really need to do a BUNCH of laundry today. I should be doing laundry right now. For some reason I am sitting in this stupid computer chair once again battling my blog and blog exploding. It's a sickness, yo. I promise it is not just me. When my computer sees me coming, the mouse starts moving on it's own..kinda like a ouija board. (I don't believe in that stuff, I swear!!) As I approach, it moves that little curser over to my favorites and clicks on Blog Explosion. Then? The keys on the keyboard are depressed without me even touching them!! It signs me in and, well, I can't just ignore the battles! I HAVE to vote! You've got to understand, it's NOT me!!

If you don't Blog Explode, click here. But don't say I didn't warn you!

Also on my sunday agenda besides laundry. A shower! Feeling pretty skanky right about now. You should see my hair. My hair will thank me. So will my family!

After doing a meme the other day and answering (or not answering) some questions about a cell phone, I just had to comment a little. Most people's reactions to my not having a cell phone is..."WHAT? You don't have a cell phone? How do you live without a cell phone??" It's easy. I just don't call people while I am in Wal-mart. I wait until I get home. I don't wreck my car trying to talk to someone. I wait til I get home. I don't drive way out in the boondocks so if my car breaks down I can walk to the nearest gas station or restaurant and use the phone. I don't worry about missed calls. I don't share private phone conversations with everyone around me. I don't yell "CAN YOU HEAR ME?" for the entire doctor's office to hear. And?? I am not that easily accessible! I don't want to be called while I am out. I hate the regular telephone ringing, why would I want to be bothered as I drive or shop or pee in a public restroom??? I leave the house to get away from things like the phone. I can live without a cellphone. My parents got one for my daughter. Yes, I have called her. But you know what, I didn't have to. She could live without a cell phone, too. My husband recently bought one of those go phones by cingular that you pre-pay. You know what? He could live without a cell phone in the real world, but he does need it for work, so I make an exception. The gist of what I am saying here?? I HATE CELL PHONES!!

    I'm not particularly fond of them, either. My family got me one as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. I use it *maybe* three times a week. On the other hand, if my 17 year old son didn't have one, it would be a nightmare. At least now I can always track him down.


    Happy Sunday! Michele sent me!

    I'm with you on cellphones. I hate mine; but I'm almost always on call in one way or another.

    I despise cellphones as well. People seem to walk around as if they are surgically attached to them.

    I agree with ya. I can live without a cell. I don't own one. I don't know if I really even want one.

    I dont use a cell phone either, mostly because I cant afford one. But I hate to see people walking around yakking 24/7! Or driving with one! OR trying to rent a movie and talking while I am trying to check them out/go over their account etc. that happened twice tonight! GGRRRR!

    I'm right with you on the cellphone thing. I have one but just so the school can contact me if the kids are sick etc. I never ring anyone on it, and if it rings? I jump and go "What's that?". Work pays for it, so it's free but I could live without it easily. Cellphones = overrated.
