iFail

Listen, I know I've been totally slacking here, but if you ask me why, I'm going to get totally passive-aggressive on you because HELLO, it's the holidays. And my kid's birthday is on Thursday and I haven't even organized the party yet.

(Help me.)

Aside from my melodrama, however, the holidays were rather uneventful. And by "uneventful" I mean that there was general harmony and peacefulness. And no one wants to read about that fruity shit, right? And so I arrive at my dilemma. Because, to be honest, I got an iPhone for Christmas, and I've been spending the past week or so reverting to age 16 and doing things like texting with excessive exclamation points or compulsively checking Twitter just to hear that little tweeting cacophony every time I load the application.

(I've yet to start saying "app." There may be hope for me yet, right? RIGHT?)

My husband doesn't think so:


But really. About that party. The kid is going to be three...you think he'll actually notice if we just invite the cats? (Okay, FINE. Grandma and Grandpa can come too.)

(And my phone.)

  1. The GREAT thing about the texting part is that it saves ALL of your conversations. You can go back and say to your hubby, "Well, no, you actually wrote...." which I wish I could do in real life conversations.

    And Hubby was addicted to the Twitteriffic Tweet sound for awhile too.

  2. My son's 3rd b-day he was less than pleased. All he wanted were gifts, could have cared less about people.

    Well gifts and his pinata, which promote violence towards flamboyant animals.

    So cake, presents and falmboyant pinata.

    Check and mate.

  6. LOL CatLadyLarew said it all. Congratulations on your iphone!!!

    Pre-iPhone days we congratulated people for engagements, marriages, graduations, births of children/grandchildren.
    Those who are not lucky enough to own an iPhone will not understand that getting your first iPhone is a HUGE deal.

    OH, thank god for uneventful holidays!

  8. You know you're addicted when you start wondering to yourself "Is there an app for that?" when you confront anything that is mildy difficult or laborous.
