Wooooo! Jump in the way back machine as we take a journey to 1998! That�s right, I finally joined the rest of the world and got myself a ...wait for it � cell phone!*
Look at me! I have now joined the rest of the world�s assholes!
I dunno, it just felt right.
Apparently another weird side effect of cell phone acquisition, besides suddenly using words like �holla� 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 it�s HILARIOUS that I�ve suddenly caved on the cell phone thing, so you know, there�s a constant stream of messages at .10 a pop streaming into my phone.
Sure it�s kind of funny to see a grown people sending me messages saying, �welcome to the world, beotch!� but you know, it�s 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 I�m sure to die of sheer frustration. Especially since I just can�t bring myself to start spelling all The-Artist-Formerly-Know-As-Prince-Who-Now-Goes-By-Prince-Again-like.
Besides, it�s really hard to drive a stick shift while doing that anyway.
I won�t die 4 u cell phone!
So, anyway, I�m leaving for bizness this weekend to watch kids sk8board and do tricks on bicycles and motorcycles and things. It�s going to be hella hot outside, but the good news is I�m getting paid to do it, and I�ve just downloaded Tetris on my new cell phone so when I am not playing that, I�ll 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 don�t 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.
