Wolfie and I bit the bullet today and ordered cell phones. It's gotten to the point where we need them, especially with my schedule all over the map as it is. My alternator gave out at the junctions of Rte 3 and 495 two weeks ago, on a Friday night at 10pm. If he and Grizzey hadn't been with me, I'd have been fucked.

Verizon has a lovely family plan promotion that we're taking advantage of: two phones, $55/month, and the phones themselves are buy one/get one free. We got Motorola V120c phones. His is black, mine is blue. And if I don't like the color, I can get a cover for it for something like $5.

I'm excited, and slightly weirded out at the same time. I mean, most of my friends have cell phones, and I haven't. Wolfie resisted it, saying "wolves don't wear collars," but then I pointed out that it was just a way for him to howl louder and farther. That, and realizing that I could get stranded by the side of the road (which has happened twice in the last three weeks), finally convinced him that they're a necessity. I just have to be careful not to get too excited about a new toy... it's just a tool.

But it's still pretty spiff.

Re: Eeep

Then you know what it's like there at night. And when I say 3 and 495, I mean between the south and northbound exit ramps. It were ugly... When Wolfie and Grizzey were changing out the battery (my heroes!), the cars were whizzing by honking at them. Not a one stopped to ask if they could help.
