Crackberries and Crackerjacks

I think I am just easily bored. I’ve had my Blackberry for about a month now, and I’m already sort of …over it.

I know, I am such a tough crowd. I think it’s the fact that I work for a company that is so technologically oriented that having devices that make me TOO connected makes me feel like I am tethered to an anchor.

Although I have my Blackberry rigged up to be connected to all the information I need, I want it to be a ONE-WAY road. The one where I know everything, but I can stand back and be …just ….out …of …reach to anyone work related. Yes, it’s a sickness.

I still drive to places with my Blackberry safely stowed in my purse. I do not have an addiction to looking at it or a need to text someone as I wait at a red light. That’s unlawful in Jersey, you know.

Me? I’m not one to break rules.

Want to hear about something TOTALLY lawless?

Yesterday, at D’s soccer game, his coach was nearly arrested for bad parent/coach conduct on the field. Without going into too much detail, I was saddened that a coach of a bunch of 5 year olds can’t use good judgement. We weren’t involved (directly) in the drama that ensued, but let’s just say law enforcement arrived on the scene and finger-pointing was a-plenty…

In front of the kids.

  1. I had a Blackberry for about 3 months earlier this year. I was really *eh* about the whole thing. Plus, it kept “butt dialing” random people and I could never hear it ringing. I finally went and switched back to a regular phone.

  2. Oh my.. what a thrilling event that must have been!I’m a bit over my blackberry, too.. though I still may or may not sleep with it under my pillow.
