Blackjack

People in relationships sometimes do things that are unpredictable. Shocking. Incomprehensible. It's like one day you think everything is fine, as it has been forever, then poof! your reality changes.

I have always maintained you should communicate your feelings for a length of time - really try to express why you're not getting what you need from the relationship - prior to making a radical change.

So it is with great guilt that I must confide I have broken up with my Treo. It just wasn't working out. Sure, I knew it like the back of my hand. All of it's little Palm-based functions were so easy. It was a little clunky, yes. But the truth is it just kept letting me down. And the more I thought, "This just isn't working out," the more apparent the obvious lack of concern on its part became.

Which is why I now have a Samsung Blackjack. Unlike people, I tend to not be capable of living without a mobile phone. So right now me and Blackjack are really getting to know each other. It's a complex little bugger, and maybe even a little temperamental, and I'm going to have to read the manual before I make any big declarations.

I wish people came with manuals. I would never read them on the front-end of course because, hey, who has time? But it would be nice to have an index to reference when things become perplexing.

And no, I am not dating anyone. Just had to say it.

YO -- I had a blackjack for about 24 hours, but it was not compatible with my car so back to Cingular it went. I'm just going to hang out and wait for the iPhone.


C-Ya soon.
