I left my cell phone on top of my car. A few cellular misadventures later, I walk out of US Cellular with a Motorola Crush, the only touch phone that didn't require a data plan to get a discount (Seriously, like any of us need an excuse to spend more time on the internet.) It's the fifth day and it's simply irrational how much I adore this phone. Is it perhaps because it's a smart phone, and I identify? It's much more likely that my life is devoid of spouse, children, and pets, and thus I'm just sad and nerdy (is there a correlation?) I considered (not briefly enough, to my shame) breaking out my camera in order to take pictures of it to post on here. Thoughts of becoming one of those people who post pictures of their pets, doll collections, or any new scores on ebay stayed my hand. The best thing about the phone is that it doubles as an mp3 player, so I've finally got my podcast groove back on. Being that it kills two birds with one stone (barbarous image, really), replacing both my confettied phone and stolen iPod, I was able to rationalize the cost. Very interesting how motivating getting my podcasts back, and having mobile learning is.
