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?

You will use it. Buy it.
I miss your apartment and your Ackbar.
