I Don't Have A Problem...I Can Quit Anytime I Want!

Oh lord, folks...I got a Blackberry this weekend! Add me to the legions of people who have gotten hooked. Seriously, I've had the thing for about 6 hours and I have barely put it down. I'm probably going to need to set some boundaries. Maybe a daily time limit or something.

It's so cute, though! It's a Curve. Dave says we should call it the Blackberry Gouge. He's a funny boy when it comes to our cell bill!

Its sweet, siren song has been calling to me for a few months. I rationalized getting it by explaining how it will help me stay connected now that I don't have internet at home during the week. Which translates to I need to be on Facebook and this blog after hours, so there!

Here's the transcript of a conversation Dave and I just had about the phone:

Dave: Does it have the pointer-thinger...the tick-tick-tick thing?

Me: No, it has the flick-flick-flick thing and the ch-ch-ch-ch-ch thing. No tick-tick-tick- tick though.

Dave: Oh, I thought you wanted a tick-tick-tick thinger.

Me: I don't need it.

I dare you to try to figure out what the heck we were talking about. We understood each other, but we both may be a little bit insane. A healthy level of insanity is required for marriage, right?


Hey, can someone let me out of this room? I don't like padded walls.

I'm that way with my iPhone. It goes everywhere I go, even to the bathroom. Enjoy your Crackberry!

I've been thinking about getting one because I go through Twitter withdrawal when I'm away from my computer. Now, that's addiction!

Was the tick-tick-tick thing the little stylus that you use on a touch screen? I have that, and I turn off the tick-tick-tick thing cuz it's too annoying. And I don't need it either.

When my kids want to play the bubble game on my Treo, I have to turn the sound down.

Congrats on the new toy!

OMG even after 5 mos I physically can't go anywhere without mine. It's truly an addiction. Maybe we could start a support group? We could all sit in a circle and text our feelings back and forth.

That's the funniest comment I've read in a long time!! Imagine the circle, all quiet, thumbs furiously tapping.
