The phone and I are slowly getting used to each other. For some reason, this phone has decided that he wants a name. I've never had a phone with a name before, but this one wants to be called Fred. Since I have been known to lose arguments with inanimate objects before, I decided to just go with the flow.
The phone is now named Fred.
I went to Wal-mart after work yesterday to see if I could find a case and a car charger for Fred. They were all out of cases, so that was a bust. I looked on Amazon, but there were so many choices that I started to get overwhelmed. I didn't order one yet. I can't decide whether I want a Doctor Who, or Sherlock, or Walking Dead, or Dallas Cowboys....
They did have some car chargers, but I didn't want to spend $30 on a new one. They had an adapter that I could have used with my iPhone 4s charger, but it cost just as much as a whole charger. I ended up getting this:
It cost 1/3 as much as the charger, and I can use the cord that came with the phone. I can also use it to charge my Kindle, if I take a road trip or something.
A couple of weeks ago, a coworker asked when I was going to bring some more cookies to work. The ones I brought in for Valentine's Day went over really well, so I figured I could make some more around Easter. I had some Easter cookie cutters around here somewhere, or so I thought.
I searched high and low, but couldn't find them. Eh, I thought, I'll just buy some new ones. They're cheap. I started searching the stores for Easter type cookie cutters -- not just eggs, but anything Easter related. I couldn't find anything. I found butterflies and flowers, but nothing specifically Easterish.
Next step, check online. I checked Amazon, Ebay, and Etsy. They had some cutters, but not the ones I remembered. Not the ones I wanted. I was about to give up, when I wandered into one last vintage bakeware shop on Etsy. Lo and behold, there they were!
Naturally, I ordered them straight away -- fearing all the while that someone else would type faster than I, and would beat me to them. But no...I got them, and they arrived today. Yippee!
While I was waiting for them to get here, I bought some colored sprinkles to decorate the cookies I plan on making.
I also dug out my Easter cookie stamps.
Now, I just have to wait and find out if they give us Good Friday off. Some years they do; some years they don't.
Either way, we're going to have cookies. It's only a question of when.
One last thing: it snowed today. In Mississippi. So, how's that global warming working out for ya?
