Yay! Our new phones have come in! :)  
Yes, my life is ultimately very sad when the most exciting thing I have to write about is that our new cell phones arrived via FedEx today. ;) Mark waited very IMpatiently for them to arrive all week and I told him that he called Cingular so often during the week that they probably answered his calls, "Hello Mark - what now?" ;)

Spent the better part of the evening figuring out how to use the darn thing and trying to download different backgrounds and ringtones for the phone (something that was so foreign to me since I'm so used to using my really ancient cell phone!) :P Mark spent a lot of the evening making fun of me and told me that my main concern with my new phone was that I was able to make it "cute." Unfortunately, that's not entirely a lie since I did try to download some cute pictures of dogs as backgrounds. ;)

On a completely different note, it's been so long since I've made a haircut appointment that when I called this afternoon, I was shocked to find that my hairdresser no longer worked there! :P I plan to go in anyway since I'm in terrible need of a cut and a highlight - I hope that the new person that I get is alright... I'm so used to the way my hairstylist did my hair and it's been years since I've had to go to someone other than her. :(

Tomorrow Mark & I are going to a book release party for one of our friends (Jon Murakami - who is a cartoonist for children's books.) Mark grew up with Jon and I went to high school with him (and he was the best man at our wedding) and we both knew that Jon would be a famous cartoonist one day - it's so nice to see him doing so well. :)

And my countdown to LA is 12 days! :D I'm so excited about this trip because not only will I get to see some great shows (and Kevin and hopefully Nick, of course) but I'm going to see gigglets and her husband who I haven't seen since January of last year. :) And Carrie, Laura, and Roger who I haven't seen since "My Way" in February... What a great trip it's going to be! :D

Well, I'm off to play around with my cell phone a bit more. ;) Hope you all have a great evening and a great Friday! :D

That's nice that you get to travel a lot. I envy people like you! Anyway, enjoy your new cell phone.

I love my new cell phone! :) I have to find more ways that I can cute-ify it. ;)

Haha! Thanks so much for the great links! :D That phone thong was hilarious - and I love the phone charm! :) That bracelet is REALY neat - what'll they think of next? ;)

*goes off to look for phone charms* ;)

I'm with Mark -- I'd be all over the phones!! That is cute tho' about your downloading mania. I did the same thing when I received mine. Fred didn't tho'.

Woo hoo for a theater trip!! :D :D
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 3rd, 2005 08:38 pm (UTC)
I'm still downloading things like a maniac! I'm in search of the perfect ringtone too - I can't find any Broadway ones that I like in midi format! :(

I may have to go back to just a regular ring on my phone...all this new stuff has me confooozled when my phone rings. My new phone can play mp3's so my ring is Credence Clearwater Revival -- Bad Moon Rising. I swear everytime my phone rings I look around wondering where the music is coming from. My phone doesn't ring very often so I never 'get used to it'. :D

Your post about your new cell phone has me thinking about upgrading mine. It's not too old (only 2 years?) but I went cheap and bought one without a camera...now I'm regretting it. :/

The icon is so CUTE of you and your hubby!!

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my icon pic! It's a pretty old picture (I think it was taken in 1999 or so - at a Jaycee convention). I can't believe my hair was ever that dark! ;)

Hehe...I'm the most impatient person when it comes to waiting for mail to arrive. And I'd be doing the same thing as you if I had a new phone! :)

Your trip to LA sounds great! I'm glad we both have a trip countdown to get excited about! :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 3rd, 2005 08:40 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty impatient waiting for things I order in the mail too. :) especially when it's cast recordings off of Amazon! ;)

Yay for your NYC trip too! :D

I can't wait until I can upgrade my phone. July 14th I'll be downloading stuff like you to try and make my phone cute. :)

Having to go to a new hair dresser can be very hard. I hope this new one works out well for you. :)

I think it's great that you support your friends artwork and career. :)

12 days isn't too far away at all!!! We'll have such a wonderful time I just know it. :D
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on July 3rd, 2005 08:53 pm (UTC)
Yay for your new phone - and I'll get to see it when I see you! :) I'm still in search of the perfect ringtone though. :) I'll probably still be fussing with my phone when I see you guys in July. ;)

I'm so used to my old hairdresser and how I never used to have to tell her what I wanted - she already knew. Hopefully this new person is patient with me. ;)

And yay for seeing you guys on this trip! I'm SO excited! :D

WOW cell phone arrival is big news. How exciting... I want one so bad. So, what ringtones have you downloaded?
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on July 3rd, 2005 08:54 pm (UTC)
I haven't found any ringtones that I really like. :( My phone only uses midi files and not mp3 files like Mark's phone. He has the curtain call music for "Millie" as his ringtone and I'm so jealous! ;) Yay for your new phone too - how exciting! :D
Sabine: Micki's placesabine10 on July 1st, 2005 11:28 pm (UTC)
Your post about the new phone made me think about to get one myself and yes, I too probably would try to make it "cute". :)

A new hairdresser - I know my hairdresser already for some time now. I may not think about that she could stop working there.

Hope you both will have a great time at the book release party. :)

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 3rd, 2005 08:55 pm (UTC)
Mark's still teasing me about trying to cute-ify my phone. The search still continues for the perfect ringtone, though - so I'll still be at it, probably through the weekend. ;)

Thanks, Sabine - hope you're having a nice weekend! Big *HUGS* to you, Micki, and Garry! :D

Yay for new phones, and making them cute. :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 3rd, 2005 08:56 pm (UTC)
Haha! Mark doesn't understand how important it is to cute-ify phones, like you and I do. ;)
