In Which I Embrace and Question Technology
I figured out a quick way to upload my phone pictures to one spot online so that I can get them on my blog. Welcome to the 21st Century! I even did it right. I wanted to use Instagram but that's an iPhone only app, so I googled Droid Instagram Apps and read reviews to pick out the best app for my needs that did the same thing as Instagram. I am using Picplz. My user name is Dirtball.
This picture is of the inside of our apartment from the porch. The app gives you 18 filters to apply. I picked number 14.
Tonight I make 3 pies at least. Pumpkin, blueberry, and peach. I might buy the "good" pie crust and make a pudding pie too. We'll see how I'm feeling in the grocery store. Goodness I love pie!
I can't decide if I want an Amazon Kindle Fire or not. It will be good for traveling, I don't need to worry about not having enough books. I can upload my free ezines I would like to read up to it. I can play majhong tile on it. It's wireless so I can do some computer stuffs. I can get a super cute case to put it in.
That's the good side. The downside is that it weights almost a pound. It's solid. I don't think it will be easy to hold it in a comfortable position for long, which is necessary for reading. The screen is a little bright, it's not like the older kindle screens, so that might make reading hard. And finally, I do love the feel and smell of a good book. But books are a little hard when traveling. I'll be able to borrow books from friends on it and I'll be able to download free books and borrow books from the library on it. I know! Blows your mind really. I'm borrowing an electronic file that I can't even hold! Crazy. This will save me money b/c right now I usually buy a book in the airport and I'm terrible at returning physical library books and the closest library is rather small and not full of options.
What do you think?
