Toys for Me

I have a bunch of fun new items. The first major item of "newness" if my new cell phone, a Palm Pixi.

For the past two years, I have been using the Samsung Glyde. Seth and Mom also got this phone, and it was nothing short of a disaster. The touchscreen on the phone was quite faulty, and really stopped being usable. Seth "downgraded" to his old phone which he had saved. My mother is still using her Glyde, but as she is sometimes unable to make calls because the touch screen is so bad, she plans to get a new phone soon. (She's up for a new one anyway.) I was also up for a new phone, and Seth finally said to me Friday, "You can't use that Glyde anymore." Hence the new Palm. It's a 3G Smart phone, so I had to get a data plan, and, while I dislike having to pay the extra $29.99 a month, I am glad to have a phone that does so much. It's also adorable and super slim.

After Seth and my trip to the Verizon store yesterday for the new phone (and to transfer my number from my mother's family share plan to Seth's), we went out for a night on the town in Northampton.

We stopped by Modern Myths where Seth got a new book for his Star Wars RPG (table top) game. We also went to Cooks Shop Here, our local tea shop. The owners have written a book about tea, which I have, and had a new one that just came out in the store. Seth's surprised me and got it -- the authors even signed it!

He also got me their tea sampler for this year.

I had the oolong, and it was great! Seth and I finished last night off with a dinner at Spoleto. They are doing a special $20 3-course meal, which we both enjoyed. It was totally delicious and totally fun to spend some extra special Seth time. After all, there is a lot of time we have to spend taking care of Lily and it's such hard work! ;-)

In exciting other news, the bulky plyer flyer assembly (with orifice and bobbin) that I special ordered for my Ladybug spinning wheel has arrived.

Comparisons with the standard size objects show a marked difference.

I am excited to try it out soon! All in all fun times are being had in Amherst!
