So I got my new BlackBerry last month. And of course, I’ve been using it a lot, since it’s new and why use a regular old land line phone when I’ve got this cool new phone to use, right?

Riiiight. Got the first bill. Let’s put it this way – if I were a teenager, I’d be grounded for at least a month and the phone would be taken away. And I’d be given a stern talking to. And trust me when I tell you that I’m not a big phone person to begin with, so I’m not sure how I used the extra bazillion minutes.

I mean, I get to blame it on the fact that I’m not living home and have to use the cell phone a lot more than I normally would, but still. Ridiculous. Everyone in the world just needs to start using email as a communication device. Unless you’re an editor, in which case, please feel free to call anytime, day or night, roaming charges be damned.
