Venting over some less than delightful details:
I have almost bricked my phone by dropping it in the toilet last night. It's showing some signs of life, but it's just a matter of time. I'm disappointed to realize that i am only just now coming out of a phone contract which means i have had this phone a much shorter time than i thought. Fie, i thought i had kept it a good while.

I hate phone shopping. I think the only time i was happy to shop was when i switched to my first android, and that's because Palm was clearly a dead operating system.

Meanwhile, i upset Christine by discussing my distrust of our cultures framing of "safe places to live." I watched a bunch of episodes of "The Gates" last night, which can't have been helpful to my subconscious framing. Also, the 1980-something Doonesbury in which Palm Beach's "registration" policy was highlit reran yesterday, and i found an old newspaper article defending the policy.

Fie, again.

Also, pestilential conditions with the cats. Apparently common, but it upset Christine who felt she failed in pet care. And i feel bad for observing the small detail that led to our knowledge of the issue.

Ok, with that out of my system....

Pondering whether i should buy a "Calico Critter" so that i can crochet clothes for the critter and engage in all the diy doll furnishings as gifts for my nieces.

Sorry about your phone. I like my Droid but will be interested to try one of the Ubuntu or Firefox phones as those systems arrive in the US and mature.

Do you have a plan where you're basically contracting for wireless service with the sim card and then you can switch the card between devices? Does that even exist?

That would make playing with new and different phones easier -- not waiting for the vendor to pick it up.

I'm pretty sure the sim-card subscription exists. You may have to pay extra for an "unlocked phone" unless you buy one for your carrier-to-be.
