iGot an iPhone

Just the other day I was telling my dear friend and employee, Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy . . .

"Colin, Daylight Savings Time is wrong. It's just wrong!"

Here's why: Regular time - one hour - two hours* = Major Confusion + No Sleep

Speaking of clocks, technology and that sort of computeresque stuff, I GOT AN iPHONE!!!!

You know what that means, don't you? Yes! With my technological savvy I will be taking communications to new levels of misunderstanding.

Here's the super-amazing-wondrous-first-photo I ever took with my iPhone . . .

I was first introduced to modern technology via a Wang word processor . . .
At the time I was a writer for Disney and was told I HAD TO learn how to use the Wang. I refused, saying I HAD TO hear the tap tap of the typewriter keyboard in order to write.

I finally acquiesced (after being told I would be fired if I didn't comply). Later, I mastered the computer. (Side note: Oh, how I miss WordPerfect!). Now my writing looks like this . . .

Sigh. Clearly, Technology and Moi aren't made for each other. Still, I try.

When I was a kid we didn't have computers. We did have calculators, but they were about the size of a two-pound loaf of bread. So, the fact that my phone that can connect to the internet, send/receive e-mail, use a GPS system to find my exact location, and tell me how many split ends I have, is truly amazing. Now if I could only figure out how to turn it off.
