Odds 'n' Ends
I am back at work today. Sleepy and allergy-ridden, but somewhat productive.
I had a company cell phone, but it looks like I will be losing it. *sigh*
Anybody want to recommend a good mobile provider? Any advice to keep in mind? I haven't needed one in a few years.
My power came back saturday evening, but all of my food is still in my mom's fridge.
Tonight I will attempt to rescue my food.
I will also hip-hop until I drop.
Then I will eat mac 'n' cheese at C's house, if all goes well.
I have a window cubicle at work, on the 4th floor, and about a mile away from my window is a small private airport.
I see a lot of planes fly by. My morbid brain keeps picturing them dropping out of the sky.
I also see a lot of birds flying and swooping about. They look like they're more likely to stay airborne than the planes.
I had a dream sometime last week or so, that I watched a helicopter crash. (Not from my office window; I was on the ground.) I saw it nose-diving, and I asked whoever I was with, "Do you think it's going down?", because for some reason I always think I see these things when they aren't happening, so I wasn't sure. Before they could answer, the helicopter vanished beneath the tree line, then an orange explosion blossomed up.
Dreams are weird sometimes. (Hey! I just realized I must dream in color! Somebody asked me that earlier, but I wasn't sure.)

Current Mood: better

The dream in colour thing is really odd. There is a theory that people only dreamed in black and white before colour tv. Of course this sounds completely stupid. However when you ask people to really think about whether they dream in colour most people are not really certain.

I think I dream in colour, but I am not really certain. When I heard that I may dream in black and white it did not seem false. It was only the daft idea that TV was responsible that adjusted my viewpoint.

I agree that the TV theory sounds like total crap. My memories of my dreams are generally so vague, I've never really known when people asked me if they were in color (colour!) or not. But really, dreams aren't so much movie-watching as experiences. Just like I generally see in color without noticing it, I imagine my dreams are similar.

Cell Phone

Lot's of competition now, so check them all out and your lifestyle, if you travel alot, you'll want no roaming charges, if you talk on the phone alot, lot's of evening and weekend minutes, lot's of tradeoffs between a phone you can cancel at anytime versus a 1 or 2 year requirement. Have fun. I am waiting until October when we should be able to switch our phone #s, plus I'll know what's happening with the City's layoffs (most of that comes on the 31st of this month).

Verizon all the way. The cell phone I have is a Samsung A310 and I couldn't be happier with it. Verizon has great plans and wonderful customer service.

As for cell phones - I had Verizon for nearly 5 years, until a couple of months ago when I dumped them. The service was good, and the pricing was average, but they just didn't have the technology. I got a new PDA - a Sony Clie NZ90 - and one of the reasons was that it has BlueTooth. Verizon doesn't offer any phones with BlueTooth, and after being told to 'wait a bit' for a few months their corporate tech dept replied to one of my emails telling me that they didn't have any plans to carry a BT phone for the foreseeable future. So they lost a customer.

AT&T Wireless and T-Mobile both have several BT GSM/GPRS phones. Sprint is supposed to have a BT CDMA phone soon, but that's iffy now since it was supposed to be the Sony Ericsson T608, and SE just said they plan to stop making CDMA phones for the US.

I ended up going with AT&T Wireless and a Sony Ericsson T68i GSM/GPRS phone with built in BlueToorh. Works great - and I think the sound quality is slightly better than my old Verizon Digital StarTac.

The drawback is that Verizon *is* the largest carrier, by far, so you almost never have to worry about being off their network if you travel. AT&T's GSM network is a lot more spotty. It is growing fast, but still a lot of gaps outside of major population centers. It has worked fine for me so far, but I've only ever used it in places like eastern MA, Dallas, Anaheim, etc.

Not being into technology, I am happy with Verizon, but I forgot Rennie is a computer geek like most of my friends. :) My computer geekiest friend felt blue tooth was must have technology as well, and is really happy with his Sony Clie.

Thanks for your input! Sheesh, there are so many plans and phoens to choose from...I can't even decide yet if I want to go ultra-small (better to carry on me), or ultra-gagety (does more stuff)!!! Eventually I'll figure it out. (:
