Know what today is?

It's new handset release day! \o/

Just finished work and am now waiting for class to start - work is going pretty well, for a value of "well" where they sort of point us vaguely in the direction of the books and tell us to make ourselves scarce for two hours. It's actually pretty awesome. Today I shelved and listened to the Nantucket AU on my Zen. (It's more or less the best job ever.)

Unfortunately I now have to sit through class, but afterwards I'm going to pick up my shiny new phone, and then you may not hear from me for several days because I will be dead from awesome.

Well, no, that's not true. You'll probably hear from me even more. Because of the awesome.

Apparently I was the first person to call Rogers Vancouver about the HTC Dream this morning. Because apparently I am that much of a nerd. ^.^


Wow. Being stuck on the broken SkyTrain for 1.5 hours today (longer because my idiot fellow commuters apparently kept hitting the emergency exit buttons to get off the cars at stations, WTF) sure would've been more annoying if I hadn't had THE COOLEST PHONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD with which to amuse myself. :)

No, seriously. I got within a block of our apartment and it was all "Oh! I see there is a secured wireless network in range! Would you like for me to connect to it?" It also pinged me passing Starbucks, which was equally cool. It's like this phone cannot wait for any excuse to disconnect from the Rogers data network and find itself some delicious WiFi. Tonight we watched nine YouTube videos (Android has its own customized interface for YouTube, Gmail, Picasa, GoogleMaps and a bunch of other things) and did not lag, and I downloaded half a dozen free apps, and Googled the Eee Top for artemisiabrisol, and did not use one byte of my 500MB allowable via the Edge service, because it was all on WiFi.

Delicious, delicious WiFi.

I played with it until the box-charged battery died outright and shut down the phone, and it's now charging for the new day. (BEST. PHONE. EVER.)

In other news, I finally found some sundresses. HAH. And a skirt. I'm getting another tomorrow which they are holding for me at Lougheed Mall, because the store at Metrotown was out of my size.


Okay. Lab quiz tomorrow, then work, then more mucking around with the BEST. PHONE. EVER.

(I promise, that was the last time. ^.^)
