An ode to technology

There are some things in life that although they are not really necessities, you become so dependent upon them that you literally have a difficult time functioning without them.

I am a lover of all things technological. Computers and phones and gadgets are such wonderful tools that when used properly and not abused, can enrich lives and bring people closer together.

I have a very deep and abiding love for certain gadgets – my cell phone is one of them. I rarely use it, but just know it’s there if I want to use it — it gives me such a sense of security. Weird, isn’t it?

In fact, I’ve had one for so long now that I don’t even remember what life was like before I one with me 24/7. I mean, how did I ever manage those late night trips to the Mart that Mister Sam built? For that matter, how did I manage to feel confident about doing anything any distance from my home in my old beat up ’96 minivan?

Yes, I’m totally waxing nostalgic tonight. I’m feeling a tad bit blue because I can’t find my cell phone. Anywhere. It’s el-gone-o. No where to be found-o. So in honor of my lost cell phone, I shall now write a poem:

O Cell Phone, Cell Phone! wherefore art thou Cell Phone?
Deny thy hiding place and reveal thyself to thee,
Or, if thou wilt not, be but found my love,
I shall no longer be phoning my friends.
And I might have to drink some poison to get over it.
Okay, that last line was a joke.
Sort of.
Sigh.

The end.

This is all I"ve got for ya, folks

Well, it would seem that every since the design business has taken off, I have less time to blog. Less time to do anything, to be honest. So to the two of you that still read my blog, I apologize (mom and mil).

I sit at my desk (outside of homeschooling) no less than 12-14 hours a day. Last night I went to bed at 3:30.

I haven’t even had time to update my design blog with all the new designs.

To break up all the monotony, I tend to watch really silly you tube video clips of some of my favorite comedians…it also feeds my creative tendencies.

Enjoy the following from Tim Hawkins:
