Wooooo! Jump in the way back machine as we take a journey to 1998! Thatís right, I finally joined the rest of the world and got myself a ...wait for it Ö cell phone!*
Look at me! I have now joined the rest of the worldís assholes!
I dunno, it just felt right.
Apparently another weird side effect of cell phone acquisition, besides suddenly using words like ďhollaĒ on a newly constant basis, is abuse of exclamation points here at ann-frank.diaryland.com.
But please, kill me before I sTaRt sPellINg like Thiz, yo.
Actually, the only real side effect I have encountered is this new fangled things you kids have been doing since birth: text messaging. All my friends think itís HILARIOUS that Iíve suddenly caved on the cell phone thing, so you know, thereís a constant stream of messages at .10 a pop streaming into my phone.
Sure itís kind of funny to see a grown people sending me messages saying, ďwelcome to the world, beotch!Ē but you know, itís just not in my nature to NOT have a comeback, so of course I have to send a message BACK and well, the back and forth has gotten a little ridiculous. I spent about an hour back and forth with a friend talking about Jesus and hookers. Necessary? No. Fun? For now.
I mean, at this rate, not only will I wind up racking up a $50.00 text messaging bill, but the huge amount of TIME it takes me to navigate those little freaking buttons takes up so. much. time Iím sure to die of sheer frustration. Especially since I just canít bring myself to start spelling all The-Artist-Formerly-Know-As-Prince-Who-Now-Goes-By-Prince-Again-like.
Besides, itís really hard to drive a stick shift while doing that anyway.
I wonít die 4 u cell phone!
So, anyway, Iím leaving for bizness this weekend to watch kids sk8board and do tricks on bicycles and motorcycles and things. Itís going to be hella hot outside, but the good news is Iím getting paid to do it, and Iíve just downloaded Tetris on my new cell phone so when I am not playing that, Iíll be sure to talk real loud everywhere I go, just so everyone will know how important I am!
Good weekend, all.
p.s. confidential to Andrew: I will renew my supergold membership soon, I swear! That is if I donít go broke text messaging everyone!
* yes, I did have the folks at the cell phone place hand over the official "last person on earth with a cell phone" certificate. It's hanging on the wall next to my walker if you must know.
