grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

raising our bars

Jo and I are about to move up in the cell phone world. We are cancelling our old and crappy cell phone service and our long distance land-line for 2 brand new flippy cell phones and a family calling plan. We've had a cell phone for a long time, but until we moved far away from so many friends, we never really used it. We have been trying to use the cell phone for the free long distance all year, but our signal has been crappy, so we decided to "raise the bar" and switch to Cingular. Despite the fact I generally hate cell phones (I really hate listening to people on campus/in the store/on the bus chat away on them like no one else is around), I am kind of excited about getting a new gadget. I really love gadgets. And it will make travelling much, much easier. If Jo was stuck on the train, for say 8 extra hours, she could call home. When I am in Philly next month I can call her without having to set up a time to be in my hotel room so she can call me. But, I don't think anyone else will really call me on it. That may be why I have never carried one around- who is going to call me on my cell phone (other than Jo to ask me to stop by and get something at the co-op on my way home)? I never get calls on my land-line, let alone on a cell phone. Actually, it will probably be off 90% of the time. So I'll have better reception and I'll be able to call Jo from airports, but I won't be one of those people walking through campus talking like no one else is around. I swear I won't.
