Does This Closet Make Me Look Desperate (for an iPhone)?

You might have noticed that things are looking different around here. Yes, we are going through some changes. Just like in puberty some of these changes are unfamiliar to me. This is why when you click some links, they don't work. I'm working and learning. Please feel free to let me know what doesn't work. I probably already know but don't know how to fix it yet. I'm (and by I, I mean Bryan) working on it. Thanks for your patience. Or impatience. Either way, thanks for stopping by. I'm desperate for your love.

On to our regularly scheduled post...

O.K. Seriously. I'm holed up in a closet in the back of Jessica's house to type. It is my only sanctuary from the pitter patter of the seven elephants that I'm sure the downstairs neighbors are convinced are currently housing here. I can still hear them running to and fro despite my iPod. Maybe I should turn it up. I find the louder the iPod, the more effective it is in drowning out children and helping me to shirk responsibility. I feel certain that when DSS shows up at my house for neglect, I'll be able to pass the buck to Apple for making products that so effectively enable you to ignore others. If you think that's a joke, then you've never gone to dinner with someone that owns an iPhone.

Speaking of the iPhone*, I really need one. I'd even settle for the iPod Touch. I should be able to tweet updates in real time instead of waiting until I get to my computer. I mean, imagine how it would enhance your life to get tweets from me like,

"I'm at the mall. Old Navy is having a killer sale."

"Just finished peeing, and I feel great."

"Anthony says, 'Dear God, may you please send me candy."

Things like this should be tweeted immediately. Why should you have to wait until I get access to a computer? We are all suffering because I don't own an iPhone.

I also feel that the iPhone would be good for my spiritual well-being. At church on Sunday, Jessica's pastor was talking about prayer and how when he runs into someone on the street and they ask him to pray for them he can add their name to his "prayer list" on his Blackberry right then. No prayer request left behind. Now clearly a Blackberry is not the right choice for me (we've covered this already), but I do feel a strong conviction that I should have an iPhone. It will be good for my soul.

Knowing that not owning an iPhone is clearly hazardous to my health and well-being, I'm sure you are wondering why I haven't purchased one yet. Money. I would ask my nephew to spot me the cash but I try not to do business with, um, nevermind. Our income tax return will be coming in the next few months, and I felt certain I would get one then, but Matt informed me on the phone the other day that he feels we should get a new TV for our birthdays (using  the income tax return). When I suggested that we discuss it more when I returned home from Georgia, he told me that he had already talked it over with himself and we are getting a new TV for our birthdays.

TV's are nice. They aren't iPhone nice, but I'm sure I could learn to love it.

But you know, if Apple should get wind of this post and think, "Hey, it would be great publicity to give a free iPhone to a blogger with 31 followers (aka ME)," then I wouldn't complain. I might even tweet about it.

*It is to be assumed that when you read the word iPhone in this post, it also stands for iPod Touch as both devices would be considered acceptable gifts.

I love how he discussed it with himself.

I have to say that I dislike twitter because the updates are SO BORING. Like mine are like, "I'm going to sleep early." Do people really want to read that?!? Maybe I'm just boring.

Like I keep telling my boys, there is such a thing as too much information - LOL! It's amazing how closets are such multi-tasking venues!

Maki said...

That's awesome that you learned how to do HTML - I would love to learn. The only thing is patience which I don't have...

I am debating on whether to upgrade my BlackBerry Curv to Bold or get iPhone... Decision decision...

Oh my gosh you made me laugh. The world DEFINITELY needs those tweets from you. How has anyone survived thus far?!

I hope you eventually get what you want!

Shell said...

Wouldn't that be awesome if they gave you one? ;)

I have a blackberry because that is what I could get with the provider we have.

Sarah and the Gentlemen said...

A TV, eh?

I think we're going to get something REALLY exciting. Are you ready for this?

Gutters. That's right. Awesome, huh? Yeah, that's what I thought.

The Godfather said...

Get a touch. Maybe thats where i come into play at some point. lol. You will love it...you can get free wi fi almost anywhere or steal wireless internet from your neighbors at home and you don't have to pay 20-30 dollars extra a month which is where the real money comes into play.

Your site looks GREAT by the way!

Hey - it looks SUPER in here! I love the background. Makes me want to change mine.

Dude. I have seen grown ass adults be completely preoccupied, while out at a restaurant IN PUBLIC and with a group of friends, with their iphones. I wanted to say, hey put that away - we're at dinner here! But that's something you would say to a kid, so I refrained. She deserved the reprimand though.

Anyway, maybe all your very sincere begging will garner some attention from the folks at Apple. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you... ;)

Did you know that you can tweet from your cell phone by texting?

All you have to do is set it up on your twitter account. (You don't need an iPhone for that - although it would be cool. I do it from my regular boring cell phone.)

Oh how I miss my iPhone... while texting your status to twitter and facebook will get THAT job done, you can't read other updates and that sucks. I went through withdrawls for months after trading in my iPhone. I'm totally with you on the hiding in the closet thing. I actually haven't tried the closet, but I think I'm going to now. My hiding place is the bathroom.

Let me see... My wife wants an IPhone. Well I would love to buy you one babe but I feel a TV is more important to our well being. I want to see sports on a BIG SCREEN in my house. Also I don't want to see you play with your phone all day. In the end will you get one? Probably lol as long as we can afford it!

Missy said...

I really want an iPhone, but it is not likely to happen any time soon.

If there is anyone in this planet who need an iPhone, it is you! Seriously, you are the funniest person I know (well, I don't know you, but I e-know you, you know?). :-)

JoeyRes said...

I'm using my hubby's iphone right now because my laptop is dying. It is awesome! I wasn't craving one before this very moment, but blog commenting is pretty sweet on here. Have a little conversation with yourself and I think you'll choose iPhone!

Honey B. said...

The iPhone opens up SO many bathroom tweeting opportunities. And opportunities in the bathroom! Seriously, that was just wasted time until you could be checking your email too! Its multitasking, you should get one for the efficiencies alone.

iPhone's are so cool! I want one too!
Happy Sharefest Saturday!!!
