Green Lantern Butt's FOREVER!

Now with Guy Gardner's Seal of Approval!

Monday, September 28, 2009


I have done something, that I thought I would never do. I...I have acquired a cell phone. I didn't really want one, but my kids talked me into it.

"How else can we get a hold of you?" they would ask. I would reply, that they could call me on the REAL phone.

"What if people are trying to talk to you?" Well, I don't really enjoy talking on the phone all that much. I have to answer it at work, but it isn't really my cup of tea. I LIKE being unavailable.

"What if your car breaks down?" I have to admit, that this last one, actually does make some sense.

So...I have a cell phone. It's currently on the charger because I don't quite know what to do with it. I'm not sure of the phone number, I haven't figured out how to call out on it, and I certainly haven't been able to figure out how to answer a call on it...but dammit...I'm CONNECTED!

I feel so hip. But I absolutely refuse to learn how to text.

If you ever broke down in traffic, I'm sure Guy Gardner would show up to rescue his number one fan.

But a cell phone isn't a bad thing to have, just in case.

I'd wreck my own car, if Guy would show up!

But I agree, it IS nice to be able to summon some help, if need be. I just refuse to use it otherwise.

Good for you. I turn mine on about once a week, if I'm going out of town, I also refuse to text (but, I do take pix sometimes).

I feel for ya! I reluctantly made the switch to Cell a couple of years ago, because Mr. Sea's job required him to have his own cell phone, and it seemed silly to have the cell phone AND a landline. So, we both got cells and got rid of the landline.

My cell phone isn't fancy. I just use it as a phone, that's all. I'm with you -- I don't much like talking on the phone, either. I have to admit, though, that it IS fun to play with the ringtones. ;-)

Heh... I fell happy in the company of so many fellow anti-tech freaks. :)

I hate the phone. But it is nice when people have cell phones. Then I can call the person, instead of the place where I guess the person might be.

I understand, that they can certainly come in quite handy. It's just that I'm so tired of them being used inappropriately...at funerals, in church, during concerts, in the bathroom...!

Stay strong. Don't text. Solidarity, my sister.

I hardly use my cell phone, either. I'd rather just talk to someone in person. I work in an all-girls' high school and my goodness you should see these kids text...they're going to have carpul tunnel when they're in their twenties. I also can't believe the amount of parents who text their children during the school day to check up on them...when I was a kid, the only way parents could communicate with their kids during the day was if they put a little note in their lunchbox.

I have a mobile and a landline. The good thing about a mobile is that you can turn it to silent and ignore any calls, as well as seeing who's calling. I like texting, it's easier than phone calls.
The good thing about the landline is that it doesn't give me a headache to use it, like the mobile does. and it's cheaper for people calling me. if i coose to answer it.
of course, life would be much easier if everyone emailed. I hate using the telephone at home.
