I think I would be in the Christmas spirit...  
...a little more if it weren't 98 degrees and terribly HUMID here! :P I know I shouldn't complain with all the snow everyone on the East Coast is getting, but really - I have every single fan on in my house and I'm just sitting at the computer and I'm sweating. :P I think I may make a trip to the market later just to cool off! :P

And woo hoo! I finally got out all of my Christmas cards! :) I received a few in the mail on Friday and realized that I was off to a late start this year. :( In case anyone missed my last post and would still like a Christmas card from us this year, please email me here and I'll add you to our list. :)

Speaking of the Christmas spirit, this has got to be one of the sweetest things that I've read in a while. Makes me wish I was there just so that I could get one of those letters. :) It really warms my heart that these performers care so much about helping people. :)

And I've been toying around with the idea of getting a new cell phone. Unlike Mark, who has to be on the cutting edge of everything technology oriented, I'm fine with my Nokia phone that I got a year ago. After all, a trade in would cost me at least $100 and that's money that I could be spending on a "Millie" ticket. ;) Gotta have priorities, after all! :)

I say go for a new cell phone! I love to get the latest & greatest and am lusting after one of the new color phones. I'm too cheap, tight, frugal, whatever tho' and won't do it. :D

98 degrees & humid. Yuck! I thought I was going to keel over from the heat when I was there in May. Luckily my folks house has A/C and Mom was kind enough to keep it at 79...uhh, thanks mom. Still thought I was gonna die.

Yeah, the one I want to get has a color display, camera, and it's a lot smaller than the one I have right now. The main thing that I like is that it has a flip top - I constantly "mistake dial" people when my phone is in my purse! :P

And the weather is awful here! I always get rather crabby in humid weather >P I hope that it gets cooler soon. :)

My dad used to call me from his pocket! Last year I bought them a phone & set up T-Mobile service for their area. There were only 2 numbers programmed into the phone and mine was one of them. I'd get to listen to dad's pocket. :D I always lock my keypad but that proved hard for my dad so now he carries it in a hard-sided cigarette case...so often he can't hear it ring. Go dad! (I remember once trying to offer tech support for something on his phone and it still escapes me how during that process he set the phone's language to French. The key sequencing for language wasn't anywhere near where we were in the menu.)

I love text messaging my folks too and they get a huge kick out of it too. They don't know how to send a message back but they enjoy receiving them.

I can never remember to lock my keypad. Once Mark heard part of my morning conversation (muffled as it was) with my co-worker from the inside of my purse!

But Hmmm... new phone or hearing Kevin sing again? That's a toughie. :)

I say go for hearing Kevin and wait until next year for the phone. You want the same phone I do but then I love Nokias sooo...that's another reason I haven't picked one out. Plus, the one I have works perfectly fine and I hate to waste.

I'm thinking about getting a new cell phone too. I'm thinking about getting the Nokia 3300, thats if its out after Christmas. I don't think its out yet. I'd say get the cell phone also. :)

I don't think I've seen that model yet, but it must be nice. :) I was thinking about getting the Motorola V300 (?) I can never remember model numbers. But I have to decide which is more important... A new phone or hearing Kevin sing on Broadway another time? :P

I love the new gadget stuff :) If I could afford it I would go for it! But I think your heart is already set on broadway! :P A phone can always wait...unless the one you have is falling apart!!

98 degrees in Hawaii!!??? Dang... go take a dip in the pacific..will cool you down! It seems since I moved here, the weather has switched.. it's supposed to be 98 and humid in KL at this time! But it's been a nice 77! Maybe I took the weather with me! he he..mean sorry for you!:P

I have to agree there, Smitha. My phone works perfectly well for now and I'm not like Mark - I don't need the latest model. A ticket to see Kevin sing is much more of a priority right now. Maybe next year the price of the phone I want will go down a bit and I can get it. :)

It WAS 98 degrees... now it's raining and storming. :( Strange weather we've been having recently! And more rain than I've EVER seen here in Ewa. :P Please give us our weather back, Smitha! ;) ;)

I'm sorry it's so hot there. :/ I'm a little late w/my Christmas cards too. :/

Actually a little after I posted that message it got really dark and rainy and now it's storming! Still pretty hot though. :P I hope the weather gets better, it's been really weird lately. :P

And you finished your Christmas cards before I did, you're not late at all! :)
