news of varied import  
Well, after just nine weeks, I'm already bored of Fantassy Fridays. They may reappear from time to time, but only when I have really good one.

But the really shocking news (at least for anyone who knows me in what the kids call "real life") is that I finally broke down and bought a cell phone. At last, late 20th-century technology is within my grasp. In the end I was motivated by K. going out of town for a few days and, of course, my patriotic duty to spend what little money I had recklessly in order to save our nation's failing economy.

Oh, man, someone who held out longer than my husband and me. I just got my cell phone 2 Christmases ago.

Oddly, I just realized that for the past couple weeks, I'd been thinking about getting a pocketwatch because I get annoyed with wristwatches sometimes, and lo and behold, the cell phone has the time right on it.

Yeah, I used to wear a pocket watch, actually, but unfortunately the cell phone replaced it. I miss having one sometimes.

Nice... did you have it on a chain or just loose in your pocket?

Chain. I actually owned quite a few over the years; I broke several and one just kept killing it's battery every month or so.

You mean all this time you've been missing out on the joys of getting drunken text messages at 3AM?!

Indeed... I wonder where the all the drunken text messages end up if there's no phone there to receive them?

Ha! He's more antiquated than me. I'll be sure to mock his monocle the next time he rides by on that penny-farthing bicycle of his!

Wow, even all the 9th graders I know have cell phones.

Judging from my niece, it seems that cellphones are like oxygen for that generation.
