I hate texting. Perhaps if I had grown up with it like all you whipper snappers it would different. But I like the English language. I like sentences in their entirety and correct spelling and not blaming auto-correct. I like the act of telling a story with real words and punctuation and spaces. If you know how all those things work, it can be kind of fun (is that geeky?). I hate itty-bitty little buttons that don’t always work as fast as I do. I hate that I typed “iced” and it came out as “ocean” and I sent it anyways cuz I thought I had typed the right thing.
Apparently my big old monkey fingers couldn’t do it right.
Anyways… I am trying to embrace as much technology as it will only help me find a job and its kinda fun to be out there looking at stuff and finding new things. I know that I need to get in line with iTunes or something like that. I mean I have an iPod or a Nano or something like that. But I have never purchased music for it. And I don’t know if I will. I really like CDs. I buy them so infrequently, but I like being able to say, in some monetarily way, “hey you with the ghee-tar and singing voice I like all that noise you be making over there so much in fact I will go out of my way and purchase your CD.” I love the art that goes along with the CD and the whole packaging of it…that’s probably the marketer in me. Also, I’m really cheap.
