Sidekick replacement, and a request for info

I think I only mentioned somewhat obliquely that my T-mobile sidekick broke back in September. At the time, I couldn’t afford to replace it, and so I just swapped my SIM chip into one of the old GSM phones we had and figured I’d look into getting another decent phone later.

Today, I finally went in to see what could be done. T-mobile no longer offers replacement plans on the phone, so the best they’d offer was a new phone at $X, with an extension of my contract. I haggled with the store manager and got it down to $X less $50, and brought it home.

Unfortunately, all my data from the old phone is long gone, which includes what was at the time my most current address book. So, If you’d like me to have your most current contact info, please put it in a comment to this entry (all comments are screened and will remain private), or send an email to me ( I’d love to have the following info:

Postal address
home phone
mobile phone
e-mail address

Thanks in advance!!

Narnia/1776 crossover

Mr Tumnus: [as Aslan is about to swat a fly] Mr. Secretary, Narnia abstains, courteously.

[Aslan raises a huge paw at Tumnus, then draws back]

Aslan: Mr. Tumnus, [pause, then roars] WHAT IN THE NAME OF TASH GOES ON IN NARNIA?

Mr. Tumnus: I’m sorry, my lord, but the simple fact is that our legislature has never sent us explicit instructions on anything!

Aslan: NEVER? [slams paw onto his desk] That’s impossible!

Mr Tumnus: My lord, have you ever been to Caer Paravel?

[Aslan shakes his head “No”]

Mr. Tumnus: There are four thrones there, to seat the two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve who are to rule all of Narnia. But the four thrones have been empty for a very long time. With the result that nothing ever gets done. [turns to the Congress as he returns to his seat] I beg the Congress’s pardon.

Aslan: [grimly] My sympathies, Mr. Tumnus.

Update on

Hey, everyone. kitanzi went into surgery for her shoulder at 10:30am, and was done in about an hour. The doctor said that everything went smoothly, and she’s now resting comfortably on the couch in front of the TV. She probably won’t be in front of the computer much the next few days, since her arm is in a sling, but so far, everything is going very well. She’ll see the doctor again next Thursday and they’ll start to discuss rehab/PT options at that time.

Thanks to everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and support. They mean a lot to both of us!

Dear Santa

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa,

This year I’ve been busy!

Last month I put gum in telynor‘s hair (-12 points). In July I committed genocide… Sorry about that, cadhla (-5000 points). Last Monday I helped kitanzi across the street (6 points). In August I donated bone marrow to catalana in a life-saving procedure (300 points). Last Wednesday I didn’t flush (-1 points).

Overall, I’ve been naughty (-4707 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!

Yeah, that sounds fair. Any volunteers? 😉

There’s always room for puppets…

Thanks to lysana, I just wasted a perfectly good half-hour reading The Hand Puppet Movie Theatre’s presentation of Serenity.

I am amused, verily.
