Becoming Domestic

So, today I did something for the first time ever in my almost 26 years of life – sewed a button back on to something. No, not a shirt. This was a case of a button that had fallen off of a duvet cover. When did this button fall off? That’s hard to say for sure, but if I had to guess, I would say it has been about 7 or 8 months. It took me an awful lot longer than it should have to sew the button on the cover, especially considering that I never use this duvet cover, but oh well. I have two shirts, I think, that need buttons put back on. I wonder when I’ll feel confident enough to tackle an actual garment.

Farewell, Dear Friend

It is with a heavy heart that I report that my Sidekick II has died and shall not return. About two weeks ago it stopped working and I have been debating over the past days whether or not to get a new Sidekick. Today I decided that I was going to give up the Sidekick service and return to the world of a regular phone. I’ve had the Sidekick service since May, 2005, and it certainly treated me very well. It was nice to have my e-mail on the go and to be able to access the internet at any given moment. My Sidekick even allowed me to engage in mobile blogging for this very website, something which will now no longer be possible.

The times I shared with my Sidekick II were good ones, and it is unlikely that I will ever forget them. Farewell, my friend, farewell!
