·I finished reading Dear John last night and bawled like a baby during the last couple of chapters. Ugh. It was NOT supposed to end that way! Finally I get to watch the movie…and I will so have a big box of tissue ready.
·Now I need a new book to read. Any suggestions? I read The Lovely Bones – liked it, The Shack – loved it and used to be completely engulfed in Dean Kootnz. I like the true crime stories too. I also love the idea of reading a book before the movie.
·We traveled to the far corner of Fort Worth last night to pick up my new replacement phone. Ugh. I have to re-do everything, but I’m ok with that because I have a phone again.
·That store was packed – but they had a great concept. You could call or email ahead to make an appointment so you don’t have to wait. I wasn’t that bright – but if you haven’t made an appointment, then they put your name on a waiting list that is displayed on a tv screen on the wall. Not a bad idea at all.
·My little rep girl seemed to be an expert with my type of phone – which Decatur wasn’t. She gave me some tips regarding the removable SD card. Nice.
·Then I took the older kid shopping for her straight A reward – she wanted an outfit. We really don’t do a lot of shopping around my house – so she was VERY excited, VERY grateful and VERY sweet….but man oh man, was that a beating! Next time, I’m taking a book and planting myself in a corner somewhere. I remembered I really don’t even like shopping for myself. I’d rather get in and get right out. She’s a look through every rack kind of gal. I will say the girl has style and it pays off. She did an incredible job and came out with a very cute outfit at a great price.
·Phone: Ok-more on the phone. Last night I started browsing different app sites on my laptop looking for an ebook reader for the google phone so I’ll stop using the iphone and carrying two phones. The iphone has a Barnes and Noble app that isn’t available with the android OS yet.
·I came across a site that displayed some popular apps, gave descriptions, reviews and also had a funny looking barcode type square that you could scan to “get” the app. On a hunch, I went straight to “The Market” on my phone and searched for scanners. I found an app called, Scanlife and downloaded it.
·I’ll be…..I opened that app up, the camera popped up on the screen, I pointed it towards the funny looking barcode and it scanned it. It automatically downloaded it the app from the laptop. Just. Like. That. ·Incredible, huh?
·Seriously – I know I threaten to video stuff all the time – but this time I mean it! Here’s a pic of the “barcode” thingie. I’ll feel silly if I learn that the iphone does that or if everybody already knew about the scanning feature.
·I already had an app that will scan barcodes off any product that has a barcode and google it. It’s great while shopping if you want to know who sells something cheaper.
OK- get on with your Wedneday. (And, thanks, Ali - that was sweet.)
