New Phone

Scott gave me a new phone for my birthday - it's got everything, every bell and whistle. My old Verizon phone was soooo past retirement age. I'm delighted I can now check my e-mail when stuck in traffic. One of the great banes of my existence is the helplessness and guilt of being caught in a jam.

Another great feature: it has a camera! (Repressed artist within cackles with glee.)

Some of my handiwork so far:

Cappuccino Chez Hatchet. Merci, Hatchets!

Poster the kids made at my "Date Smart" class last week. Each foot is a "step" that each kid wants to take to "end dating violence." At this size it's not possible to read but at full size it's great for documenting what the kids were learning. I took this picture so our program coordinator could see how the class progressed. My favorite foot on this poster says simply "groceries!" (Because a trip to the grocery store is one of the surreptitious ways you can get away from violence at home, and call the police.)

Champagne with play-doh sculpture at Liz' birthday party.

Happy birthday, Liz!

(Artistically blurred, no? Very deep.)

Friends celebrating Liz.

For me this picture shows what this little camera is for: capturing the moment.

We had a lovely time.

Thank you, Scott. I love my new phone! You are a handsome jewel of the rarest quality.

Well what is it? An iPhone? a blackberry? a treo?

Man I want an iPhone... I couldn't figure out what the big deal was until I got to play with one a little bit. Yeah it's that cool.

It's a Treo 700w. Is it not sweet? :)

Happy belated birthday!

Cameras are great- My friends now roll their eyes whenever I take out my [camera]phone or camera because they think I take pictures excessively, but they'll thank me later when they're old[er]. :)

I want to know more about the playdough sculpture!

Liz provided lots of toys to keep us old folks entertained - Hungry Hippos, Operation, Play-Doh . . . and champagne.

The dinner buffet was also wonderful - it was at the Hotel Monaco downtown, in one of their party rooms.
