phone drama at present

Ahhh! Damn! So something happened to my phone. It just went dark when I left for work on Tuesday and it never turned back on.I didn't drop it or anything. It just...stopped turning on. Damn! But I paid the replacement charge so I should get a reimbursement. Still, how sucky! Today (Wednesday) on the way home I swung by the WalMart in Poulsbo. They said they can't reimburse and I must call and send my phone in, so I bought a phone for the same price as the reimbursement will be. It's slightly better in terms of features, but it's different and it'll take some getting used to. And while I have my SD card from my old phone, not all of my data backed up so I have to redo my contacts. I don't seem to have saved THAT to the cloud. Uhg. But hopefully I can salvage stuff from the sim card. Gotta be some service that'll do that for me.

Anyway, that was the downer part of these two days. I'm onto a Motorola from a ZTE, so a less burner brand of a phone.

Work was moving boxes and packing things and clearing up space. Lots of heavy lifting, but got that sorted away.

After work I went to see Aaron. Had a few beers, talked about pig butchering and phones and who the hell thought tipping arm rests was a good idea?

I slept in when I got home because I lacked the ability to set an alarm on my phone. I currently miss my old phone. I wonder when the loss of it's information will stop effecting me? Tech changes so fast and we adjust and new things occupy and are improvements. I got it in April, so it lasted oh...8 months? That's not exactly great, but hey warranty! And cheap tech is as cheap tech does.

Nate and Helen got me Pandemic for Christmas! I opened it early (oh and Celia liked the mug I painted for her at the paint your own pottery place, where I painted a John Finnemore and Edgar Wright mug for myself, I don't know if I mentioned I did that because I was keeping the present mum, I picked up the mugs on the day we saw The Hobbit) so we played it tonight! I reckon we'll play it a couple more times tomorrow. It's a two player. I wonder if Aaron liked board games? It's 2-4. And the good thing is, is all the players are playing against the board and not one another.

My presents are shabbily wrapped and under the tree. Nate and Helen are probably asleep. I'll tuck into bed soon. I'm the only one with a stocking this year. Mom declared the stockings stop at age 30. Damn that's harsh. Only four years left for me.
