What I Really, Really Want

So, what do these things have in common? Let's see...I want them both. One is the unchallenged, over the top iphone. Now, those of you who know me know how much I hate the phone. I am constantly losing it, letting it go dead, hanging up on people who call or flat out rejecting the call because I picked the damn thing up wrong. But, is it really a phone? Hell, NO! It's a mini-computer that is something I could play with all day long.

What does a 61 year old woman need with a toy like this...baby, this ain't got nothing to do with need. The primary word is WANT...like right now, in my hand, let me shake it, turn it sideways, figure out how to post to Facebook from it, read my important email from Freecycle and look as cool as any grey hair can look with earphones in her ears while getting down to Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" (Honest, honey, if I can have an iphone I promise I will learn that dance in time for our anniversary!) (Or, my birthday.) (Or, yours.) (Or, NOT!)

Okay, now onto picture number two. Most of you know that Jewels moved to Albuquerque last fall and while I'm sure I will see her some day, I kind of have started wanting a new dog now. And, I'm not talking about a new puppy that's all cute and cuddly, I want a rescue dog that will bring out the Dog Whisperer in me and put me back in the pack leader position. Kim has hinted that winter isn't the best time to get a new dog. (Make that insisted.) I have mentioned it so often that I came up with the idea that if I started asking for a horse, it would be much easier for him to say yes to a dog.

Well, it has been an uphill battle and the words "wait until spring" don't mean much to me when I really, really want a puppy, NOW! I thought I had gotten somewhere when he started asking all of those pre-dog questions...Do you promise to take it for walks? Will you clean up after it when it does its business in the yard? And on and on in that teasing-me-as-if-I-were-nine-years-old way. The nerve.

So, no ipod and no dog...I'll be marking off the days on the calendar cause I know that I am spoiled rotten and my birthday is coming up and February (birthday month) is almost spring and when I get my present I will certainly need something to take pictures of it with and e-mail immediately to all my friends and family...Makes sense to me. How about you?

You know if you aren't interested in the phone feature of the iphone but want everything else why not check out the itouch? I think it is cheaper because it doesn't require a contract. Your more likely to get it that way. :)

I am by no stretch a cell phone lover. I never answer it. But I have an iphone and though I can't say that it has changed my life... I do like it more than any other phone I've ever had. I particularly like that I am able to use it as an ipod and check my email from it. It's really great in dr's offices.
