It’s frustrating, in that hardly anyone ever calls me besides the parents of my students, colleagues, and my family and my lady-love. However, my phone is currently dead. It’s the physical hardware, not the land line, that’s the source of the problem.
Yesterday at the mall I almost bought myself an iPhone. But I thought, No, Christmas is coming and I need to save the money for presents for others, and anyway they’re too expensive and gadget-y. Now I need to go spend money on a phone today. Argh.
