New phone on the way.

IMG_20170623_100852The new sim card my current cell phone carrier sent me .today  does not allow my phone to call out if I am in the house.

and it often has a twenty-minute delay for texts.

Which is weird, since it used the  Sprint, T-Mobile networks as well as wifi. However, that seems to be in theory.

How I can get an error message that says no carrier, when I am on both networks, as well as using my freaking wifi.

But no.

So I went with the virgin mobile deal.

I hope the new camera, and other coolness is worth it.

My iPod touch does better than my phone on wifi.


Camera issues

My fat fingers aside I gotta say I am more than happy with the camera in my iPod. And if the SE has a better camera ? Then wow!

Which is to say the more I use my old iPod the more the smaller screen seems to bother me less.

Maybe if I did more stuff with my phone, but since I just seem to blog about food and things that are not moving fast. And twice the storage as well.

Fat fingers diet

I wonder how much weight I would have to lose before my fingers get leaner? Or am I just doomed to have stubbly fat fingers forever?

With unconditional love

Started my day with some coffee, noticed that in the time I was gone last night my roommates decided to leave the pots and pans they used on the stove

Does size Matter?

For the last two weeks, I have been working on. A fairly straight forward problem.

does the size of my phone really matter that much?

My current phone is by google and it is a whopping 5.2 inches. which is nicely huge, there is plenty of real estate for my sausage like fingers.However, it has been acting very unhappy with me for a while now.

Dropping calls.

Randomly activating airplane mode.

And the holding of texts and updates, until some mysterious threshold, is reached and then all messages are delivered at once.

My first idea was to just IMG_20170623_100852

activate an equally big android phone

on virgin mobile.

Which would allow me to use a phone I already have and to save a little on my monthly phone bill.


Which was when I found out

Virgin mobile was going all


Which completely screwed up that plan.


I like the idea of an iPhone but the cost of 500 plus is out of my budget.

And here is where it get tricky.


If you purchase an iPhone through Virgin (which runs on the Sprint network), you’ll pay just $1 for a year’s worth of unlimited talk, text and data service for the smartphone

A new iPhone SE will cost me 279, but then service will be 1 dollar for the year.

So now I am carrying around my iPod touch and trying to use it like I would my phone as often as I can.

I can only use it when I have wifi, iphone5sesilver-gallery-angle-2_ios10

But I can Blog with it.

Take photos.

Edit photos.

Use Facebook Messenger.

and almost everything else I do with my phone.

and its smaller size will almost perfectly mimic the


Except, of course, the SE will be better in most ways.

More memory,

faster processor

and of course a better camera.

So now I just have to see if my stubby finger can handle the change.





To say that my landlord was not happy with my roommates would be an understatement.
The stack of dishes and the modern art exhibit outside the front door, consisting of several pairs of socks and a tie.

I think it is a double bonus that after they left I decided to clean the upstairs bathroom and the kitchen and they came back and caught me doing it. So points for me.
