So, I am a total technophile. I really do love gadgets and electronics. Faerylady, on the other hand, is a technophobe. She carries a Franklin planner, is confused and easily frustrated by computer software, and has the cheapest basic cellphone you can get. I've got a Motorola Krazr, an iPod, a laptop, a Palm lifedrive, and a GPS unit. You get the idea. She's always ribbing me about the failings of my gadgets and I'm always ribbing her about her inability to get with the 21st century.
While I was at her house on Wednesday, recertifying my AHA CPR class, I noticed that two of the other midwives had iPhones. I about had a techgasm playing with them. I said, "oh my gosh! What I want for Christmas is an iPhone and an Xbox 360!!!" Faerylady answered, "Oh yeah? Well, I asked for play doh and an etch-a-sketch."
