Passing the Time with New and Old

~ I have now read 47 books, and am working on #48 (a re-reading of A Tale of Two Cities courtesy of the next item below).

~ Randy and I upgraded our cell phones, and I got the HTC Inspire.  I love it so far.  Among my favorite features are the built-in ereader (pre-loaded with several classics, plus the ability to purchase/download more), and also an 8 megapixel camera with various special effects options.  I wanted to check the quality, so I took a quick pic in sepia and am happy with the results:

 

I’m currently in the process of choosing ringtones.  I seem drawn to songs that are inappropriate for a future therapist: I Wanna Be Sedated, Crazy, Chop and Change, etc.

    Mark- I love it! It looks like a cooler sibling to mine. They seem to have a lot of similar features, but yours is more advanced. Sexy indeed (although I think mine is pretty hot, too *G*)

    A Tale of Two Cities brings back horrifying memories of 11th grade English. Enjoy your HTC!

    Tony- Moby Dick is my 11th grade English horror. *G*
