Twenty-Fifth Post - Snow!

After I eventually woke up on Sunday morning, I pretty much just vegged for the rest of the day. Not much to talk about.

The chili is in the fridge awaiting a trip to work tomorrow. I just hope I can transport it there. The weather today is not very good; police are asking people to stay off the road. I am happy to comply with this request, let me tell you.

Couple buddies from work got new BlackBerries last week. Makes my BlackBerry look so... small. Mine doesn't have gps, can't play mp3's, or take pictures. No! It "just" lets me receive and make phone calls, send and receive e-mails, keep track of appointments, and the like.

When I got my BB back in January, I had only even held one, once. I didn't see what the big deal was. I understood that they were referred to as "CrackBerries", but didn't see how I could ever be swept up in the addictive maelstrom associated with these devices.

I'm hooked!

I can't possibly give up my BlackBerry now. I check online reviews of the latest versions. I jealously look at other people's BlackBerries to see if theirs have more features than mine. I constantly check my e-mail, even when I am watching tv, or when I am blogging (like I did 10 seconds ago). I check e-mail when I am using the facilities. Last week, I checked my e-mail was using the urinal, and managed to reply to an e-mail with the use of one hand (if you catch my drift). I send e-mails in bed, 11 o'clock at night. If I wake up in the middle of the night to freshen things up (if you catch my drift), I'll "just see" if I have some important e-mails to check. Since I am on call for 2 weeks out of every month, there are over night e-mails that I need to check. Three a.m. is as good a time as any to do this! I check e-mails during dinners in restaurants with my fiancee. She doesn't like that too much.

If someone tried to take away my BB, that person would have quite a struggle. I suppose he'd win, but he'd have war wounds. Let's leave it at that!

What is the background image on your blackberry? Mine is a picture of me when I was 11. The same one which currently adorns this very blog, to be exact!

Oops. Just got the tell tale buzz. BRB!
