like taking a needle from a herion addict (or maybe just a lighter from a smoker)

Dear blackberry makers,

When you sold me my $17 memory card and explained that it could in fact store the world on it, I thought I would be safe to umm, store stuff on it.

I was wrong.

The other day, I was just sitting on the couch when my dad called and to my surprise I heard a default ringtone. (TO CLARIFY, THERE WAS NO WATER ON MY COUCH). after looking through some every file on my phone, i realized the normal ringtone (fittingly “I’m not going to write you a love song”) no longer was on my memory card – because it had deleted itself.

That’s right. IT DELETED ITSELF! That freaking thing had video, pictures, digital recording of work interviews, music and the air I breathe stored on it.

I didn’t panic though. I thought, surely those nice folks at one of many local Verizon stores could fix the problem. No. no they couldn’t. In fact, I’m would argue that they either a. didn’t know what exactly my problem was b. didn’t believe me or c. assumed i must have dropped the phone in the atlantic, seeing as how severe water damage was the only explanation.

In any case, I am extremely disappointed with the quality of this device and it’s corresponding memory card. I have since developed trust issues and am wondering if I should (gasp) switch to some sort of apple product for all my memory-card related needs. (Those iPod touch thingys look pretty tempting). Just wanted to give you a heads up!

Thanks for your time,

heck ya i got a bberry. and its pink too

yes my hair is darker. no, i don't know why my fingers look so long
darker hair. cooler phone. same towels.

first of all, yes. i love it!

second of all, my mom (a verizon employee with discounts) got it for me, so it’s not like im suddenly rich. (although some say i live in a mansion based on my attached garage status).

im talking about my new blackberry curve of course.

for those of you stuck in 2006, let me explain to you why a blackberry is god’s way of making up for 8 years of George W. Bush:

1. my text messages now are displayed as a running conversation. no more, “why did that boy say: he’d like a lick?!… oh. I told him i was baking cookies.” etc.

2. i can totally blog via my phone if i’m so inspired (this post is, however, done the old-fashioned way on a computer)

3. it has a 2 mega pixel camera (see above).

4. it has a digital voice recorder on it, which i can use to interview everyone from a random firefighter, to the mayor.

5. it makes you look really important when you use it.

6. it has a little scolly thing instead of flimsy arrow keys.

7. it comes with a ring tone named ‘crystal’ (yes this is true. yes i’m using it).

8. i can totally read things online (like dooce, or or when im bored.

9. it totally stores a bunch of music.

10. it’s synced to e-mail, which i can even reply to via my awesome phone.

11. it’s pink.

SEE! SEE how much cool stuff i’ve discovered in the past 24 hours! and im sure there’s just more to come!

im pretty certain i officially have the best mom in the universe.

wait, let me check all-knowing google ……. yep. “in the universe” stands.

if you or someone you love has owned a blackberry longer than 24 hours PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me cool things i can do with it. also send your pin to my phone and we can blackberry messenger (like the cool kids).

p.s. yes, i totally created a ‘blackberry’ category for my blog. what? it’s love people. LOVE!
