My watch stopped

Well my watch stopped so I knew I needed to buy a new one. The thing is, people tell the time by their cell phone these days. I also needed a mp3 player. The thing is, people can download music and listen to it on their cell phones. I did not want a cell phone but I don't have my own private telephone line so.... I bought a Rogers phone yesterday. I have figured out how to download music into it and I have taken a few pictures with it, but I have yet to use it as a phone...
I loaded the CBC Radio3 podcast all about the Polaris nominees (yeah I had to catch up with that, the only time I had was commute time). So there I was listening to my podcast and checking the time and taking a pic of a camera crew from Global on Bloor St. I work right next to MTV on Yonge and they had camera crew out on the street today too.
I guess you see that a lot in Toronto.

Haha don't you just love technology? I'd invest in one of those protective cases if I were you. I procrastinated, and then somebody dropped a backpack on my phone, which was in my backpack... delicate tech+clay-coated textbooks=BAD.

It's nice to have stuff to do while commuting, well except if you are driving of course. But I will always wear a watch and I hate cell phones. I am a dinosaur.

Barbara B I take the TTC to work because it's cheaper than parking. It's faster too. Sometimes I get a lift and once I walked home. It's only 5 km.
Ariel I will look into that. Good advise.

I've just got a new phone! Its all singing all dancing like yours sounds - if Allison hadn't asked I would never have known the little devil can take videos...check yours out too! Great pic you took, impressive.

Allison said...

I resisted the cell phone, but Bell was just too complicated to get the land land, so I now have a cell. And as Kees mentioned, I can take pics and videos too. It took me two weeks to realize I could use my digital camera usb cord to DLl the stuff to my computer...that's the dinosaur in me.
I'd be lost without a watch though.

Barbara said...

I linked it to my computer as soon as I could because I wanted to use the mp3 option. I am still not good at working out the phone option like answering or calling... lol I did notice the video option too.
Oh I saw a beautiful watch today I could not resist buying for myself. It's a fossil and it's so pretty. I don't know whats wrong with me all this spending money on myself as fast as I can make it is not helping my budget.

kees said...

Can we see a pic of the new watch? I love watches, never wear them though. And I reckon probably you're entitled to a few 'welcome to Toronto' pressies for yourself, that would be my justification anyhow :D

Barbara said...

I will post a pic of the watch in a bit. I keep looking for boots like the ones you bought but have not seen anything that nice yet. Everyone is wearing those ugly boots called Ugs... It's too early in the fall to wear ugly winter boots if you ask me.
I would eat just toast for two weeks to buy boots like yours.

Nice gifts. Hey if it makes you happy. It's money well spent. I have been wanting a camera phone too. The one I have is still working ok, so guess I'll to wait a while. You should check into getting yourself an ipod. They are great, compact and hold loads of music. Oops, more money....sheesh where are those money trees, us girls need to pick up the dollars to go shopping with ;)

I am all about the protective cases. Every piece of electronic gear that I have owned, with no case, I eventually dropped and did some damage. :(

My friend works at that MTV, it's the old masonic temple, right?

Barbara said...

Yes Green Tea it's just a few doors down from me. I saw a camera crew hanging out front on Friday.
It looks like an interesting place to work.
What does your friend do there?

Barbara said...

Ocean it can make one happy til one gets the bill... then the guilt.
Oh well I don't have a boyfriend to spend money on. So it's like spare...

kees said...

Nice watch! Like the colour of the face. What size are you? I'll keep my eye out for a pair. Always happy to help someone out in the pursuit of shoes.

Barbara said...

lol kees I am trying to be good don't tempt me with footwear...lol

I don't have a home phone or a watch, or an alarm clock.
My cell phone covers all three. I feel disconnected with out it, but I don't use it as much as you might think. Next to nobody calls.

My phone isn't very exciting - it doesn't have an mp3 player or a camera. I suck at downloading ring tones and am happy to stick with Jay-Z's "the threat" forever. BTW you know how my ring sounds b/c it's part of the Strombo show.
Which I forgot to listen to yesterday?? eventhough my new day off is Sunday. Oops!

Barbara said...

well then i hope agent 668 will do the synopsis of the show for you... you missed George answering my question about the RHCP and helping hilary with her math homework...lol
