Back home, and the iPhone

I’m back home from my cousin’s wedding reception in New York City. We had a fantastic time, although it was very hot and we didn’t end up walking around very much. The reception was a traditional Chinese banquet, so there was LOTS of food: 12 courses! I think I’m still feeling rather full.

On our way there and back, we listened to Bill Bryson, which made the drive feel much faster. I also managed to finish up the first Harry Potter in audio – it’s amazing what can be accomplished during a nine hour drive!

I spent yesterday resting – it was also my birthday so there were a few more mini-feasts (we are big on food around here). And today we picked up my new iPhone, my birthday present!

Needless to say, I’ve been busy all day checking out iPhone apps. I’m blogging this from my iPhone right now. Kind of slow but very interesting. Now I just have to get more of a life so I can indulge in mobile blogging (about books, of course)!

In the meantime I’ve been texting my kids like crazy, driving them nuts. The iPhone just makes it too easy. But that’s a whole other story.

      I’ve been kicking myself that I forgot to take pictures of the food! After dish no. 6, they took a break for speeches and I actually thought things were done. Hah! Of course not. I love food, but I actually had to say no to the last two dishes. I’ve got lovely pictures of all of the kids, though. Thanks for a great idea – I think I WILL blog about the dinner, even though there won’t be any food pics!

    How fun! I really want an iphone. Thought I was getting one this month but turns out I can only upgrade my phone now if I stick with Verizon. I can’t switch to AT&T until Dec. w/o paying an early termination fee :( Can’t imagine blogging from it but excited to get Twitter & some games on it.

      We actually spent an hour and a half on the phone with customer service at the Rogers’ store, because there was a glitch in our account and it was showing we weren’t eligible for an upgrade. We hung in there, though, and they were so nice and gave me some great bonuses.

      What I love best is that it’s even more portable than my netbook, and it picks up our wi-fi when I’m at home (and I’m usually at home!).

      December will be here before you know it, and you’ll have so much fun with it!

      I am really liking the texting, much to my kids’ chagrin. They’re threatening not to answer my texts anymore :) I think I might bug my sister next …

    Glad you had a great trip and Happy Birthday a day late! I’m totally jealous of your iPhone – both my hubby and son have them. You’ll get faster with it – they can both type up stuff amazingly fast on theirs.

      That’s good to know, Kathy. It’s still quite slow, but I think you’re right – it feels faster today than it did yesterday!

      I never really saw the appeal of texting before but now I definitely do. My son was at a friend’s last night and I kept texting him. He had to tell his friends that his mom got an iPhone and can’t stop playing with it. :)

      Nicole, this post took me a LONG time to write – talk about “all thumbs” LOL The iPhone has this autocorrect feature, though, which replaced my misspelled words. That came in handy.
