Just like the avatar at the top of this blog for about 5 years now you can count on catching me going to work on my trusty sidekick-Bruno. I've upgraded Bruno a few times but never got distracted with any Droids or other fancies and since I wasn't on AT&T the iPhone wasn't even tempted, Bruno was my go to guy no questions asked! We checked in to Foursquare on all my adventures, we Tweeted my randoms throughout the day, we kept up with email from work, personal, and blog all on the go.
Chunks came along and he too fell in love with Bruno and some of the apps that we could download on him just for Chunks's learning and entertaining pleasure. This could cause some parents a little fear but nah, not me, Bruno was a tough guy and could deal with a toddler and he did for 2 years until last weekend...
Chunks was supposed to be racing cars in the hallway while I did some work in the room, when things got too quiet I peeked out and noticed the bathroom door was open, Oh no. I called his name and he answered very quickly and ran out in the hall, Oh No. I walked into the bathroom to look around at what he was getting into and everything was normal and/or locked away ::sigh of relief:: I turned to cut the light off and that's when I saw him, Bruno, floating at the bottom of the toilet OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I scooped him up and yanked the battery out and tried to try him off as quickly as I could but it was too late, Bruno was gone :-( and after telling my tragic story to the good folks at Verizon they reminded me I had insurance and it would only cost $100 bucks to replace him (::side note::why pay insurance and STILL have to pay $100 bucks for a replacement? but that's another day). I've been trying for a month now to be cheap and not get another phone since I'm due for a new, free phone in April. You would die if I showed you the antique I've been using (hint: it flips, don't laugh too hard). I am a texter, you want me text me but NOW texting is a chore, remember when T9 was the best thing to come along??? Yea that's where I'm at. I miss tweeting on the go and getting all my info right now, don't think I can take much more and listening to all my messages just to get to the one I really want to hear is beyond the WORST! Spoiled modern tech-geek that I am, so it looks like I'll be caving in and getting a new Blackberry to hold me over until April when the iPhone will take center stage.
