new toy

I didn't make it into the studio last night. Instead, I was at the local Walmart. Standing at the cell phone counter for 45 min. watching kids walk by with big rings in their lips. Have you seen this new "style" or "fad"? Jet black hair, that's NOT brushed, black clothes with chains hanging, bracelets, no make-up, ghosty white skin, and 2 big ol' metal (?) rings in the bottom lip.
Maybe it's just me, but I don't get it.

Anyway, walked away finally at 9pm with my new phone upgrade in tow. Went to Walmart because when I had walked into the local AT&T store, I was completely ignored, and there were 9 people in the store. I thought about switching to Verizon, went to their store and had the SAME experience. No service. And a TON of people there. Must have gone at just the wrong moment.
My contract is up at the end of the week. I was going to get a phone for J too but didn't really see the "cheap" flip style phone that he was requesting. I had a Motorola Razr V3 for 2 long years.
Now I have this GEM of a phone. No idea how to use it. But it's pretty! And it's RED!

    The kids these days - I'll tell you what - in my day it was big hair and day glow colors that got scoffed at. And trust me, you don't even want to know what else they have pierced.....

  2. Hi Lindy!
    I know what you're saying! I'm not one to judge. I was surprised that their mother, who was with them in the store btw, would be okay with this "style". I would not be surprised if my 13 yr old brother adapt this "style" in the future.
    *oh my goodness.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
