I Just Can’t Help Myself

Are you a Smartphone user? I say Smartphone user instead of “Do you use a Smartphone?” because it’s comparable to a drug. I am a CrackBerry user. I had to laugh when I saw this clip of Jerry Seinfeld making fun of us:

Having an incredibly awesome phone has ruined me forever. I don’t know what I would do without it! What a tragedy it would be if I couldn’t immediately look up the contents of V8 Splash when I wanted to. Right? Not only do I break out into a cold sweat when I can’t find my phone, I’m completely addicted to the LED light. I can feel when it is going to start blinking. It’s like I have LED light spidey senses. And when it does blink, I check it within the first few seconds. I can’t help myself. Even when I try not to check it, I start immediately wondering….

Is it an email? I wonder if it’s my gmail or work email. It could be a text… Or maybe a Facebook notification? Maybe it’s an old friend I haven’t heard from in years! Or my husband. Maybe he wants to go out tonight. Should I get a babysitter?

The little red light calls to me. It’s LED ADD. Willing me to pick up my BlackBerry and check it. So I do. And it’s….my daily HGTV eNewsletter. Darn.

Mobile Blogging

I’ve been using Facebook more than blogging the past few months because I can easily update it from my BlackBerry while I’m on the go (or while I’m hiding from my kids for some peace and quiet in the pantry). I just discovered the WordPress app and I’m giving it a try! (from the pantry) Will mobile blogging work for me? Stay tuned…
