“And I said, hey, let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the—hey, are you getting this? Because I do not have have time to repeat myself, nuh-uh.”
This guy reminds me of the time in the 80s I drove around and pretended to talk on a home cordless phone so people would think I had a cell phone.
I’m still getting spam calls for Trevor about being approved for an auto loan. I have no idea how this benefits them. Do they think people are going to call back and say, “I’m not Trevor, but I’ll take his loan!”
I finally got fed up with them. I decided to call them (at (508) 857-3943) and ask for Trevor. I’m going to continue asking for Trevor for quite a while (blocking my caller ID with *67, of course). Then at some point in the future, I’ll call as Trevor and ask if I have any messages.
Perhaps there will be messages from all around the country. Who knows?

I’m somebody now! Millions of people play this game every day! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in a game - that MAKES people. I’m in a game! Things are going to start happening to me now.
A Cautionary Tale
My two year contract with Verizon was over in June, and I’ve been able to get a new phone since March (for a paltry $20 fee). But I’ve been holding off because of the fucking rumors of fucking Apple making a fucking deal to get the fucking iPhone on fucking Verizon.
Can you tell I’m a little frustrated?
So when my phone’s battery life dropped off a cliff, I continued to just deal with it. Then it got worse and worse. It got to the point that one conversation with my insurance company about my totaled car made the freshly-charged battery go to one bar.
Meanwhile, new rumors of the fucking Apple fucking iPhone going to fucking Verizon in fucking September started fucking circulating. This battery couldn’t wait that long.
So, my decision was between a Droid and a new battery. Now that I have a car payment to make, I chose to replace the battery instead of taking on a fucking iPhone-sized monthly bill. (My bill is small compared to the phone’s capabilities. For a long version of that sentence read the next paragraph. But feel free to skip it.)
My LG Dare is a “feature-phone” that Verizon went out on a limb for with regard to the monthly charges and what they allowed it to do. It has an HTML browser with which I can use Tumblr, Google services, Twitter, etc. on the $15 per month unlimited plan, which also includes V-Cast TV content. It streams YouTube directly to the native video player. It takes 3 MP auto-focus flash pictures and LED-illuminated 640x480 video. They also allowed Bluetooth data transfer, so I can send pictures to the computer, or directly to the Bluetooth printer. I can also browse computer files and pull them down to the phone. I could also tether for $60 a month if I wanted to. Try that with your fucking iPhone.
Sorry. That just jumped out. I still covet your fucking iPhones, but I’ll not put up with fucking AT&T.
Today I replaced the battery and this is what I took out. Pretty scary. It could have burst into flames at any moment by the looks of it. Yikes!
So the moral of the story is: When your phone’s battery life drops off a cliff, replace it soon. Don’t risk this kind of Hot Pocket.
