Political, Pretty, and Dialed-In

While I’m busy being political, check out a local commentary on Palin coming home to Alaska:

Done now.

The big news is that my sister-in-law got married over the weekend. The wedding was beautiful, the bride was beautiful, I was… drunk. And then forced to sober up because they needed someone to drive the groom’s parents home. So I started out strong, and then switched to water for the last four courses, which was hard. Because there was so much free wine flowing. But the groom’s parents got home safely, so I’m hoping I can karmically cash in on some of the cases of wine the newlyweds got to bring home. (As they brought their own alcohol, and since I was not drinking, they did not end up needing nearly as much as they had expected.)

Then today I was supposed to take the tuxes back to the rental place, and they had to be back by noon, so I raced over there around 10:30 only to discover they don’t open until 11:00. That’s quite the scam, giving hungover wedding attendees an hour window to return rentals. Happily (or, not so much, really) as we have discussed, I was not hungover. So I was quick-witted enough to see a cell phone store across the street, and decided to go shopping. Because, if you remember, my phone is only working when it sees fit. Much like the French. (I kid, my one and only French reader.)

So I am the proud new owner of one of these

and so is The Funasaurus because there was a buy one get one free thing going on. It’s not an iPhone, but since it’s pretty snazzy and only a fraction of the price, I am content. And so is The Funasaurus who gleefully discovered a porn-like ringtone pre-programmed onto his. Luckily for me, The Funasaurus does not get many phone calls.

LOVE the story about the Alaska women! These stories give me hope and remind me that we can't rely on what the main stream media chooses to show to determine how things are really going!

Thank you for the story from Alaska. That's a relief.

I am curious as to what a "porn-like ringtone" sounds like.

Celia said...

So Pretty! And I also want to know what a porn-like ringtone sounds like.
Congrats on resisting the free wine. I think you're almost OWED a case of wine for your effort. :)

spiffy! at least now you will actually GET calls instead of just voicemail!

I really hope that the porn-like ringtone sounds something like "Brown Chicken Brown Cow"!

Lily said...

Très cool, ton nouveau cellulaire.:P
I'd really love to hear that porn ringtone too, is there a way to post it?
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to not working, I just don't feel like it.:P
