I’m in an insanely great mood. Which, for me, is really quite unheard of so I’m milking it for all it’s worth.
So, what’s the root of this great mood?
My new blackberry.
Sometimes, life really is that simple.
See, when my office moved a few months back, I lost an assigned desk and gained a laptop and the freedom to work wherever I please each day. Except, “wherever I please” was not always near a telephone. Which made it difficult to do my job. On the days I wasn’t working near a phone, I had to use my personal cell phone to make work-related calls or check my work voice mail.
It’s also annoying to get work calls on your personal phone while you’re, you know, ON VACATION. Yes, I’m just that important. And sadly, my colleagues had no other way of getting in touch with me since I also lacked e-mail access on vacation.
So after months of begging and pleading, I finally got the office to issue me a blackberry. (Really, they just switched to a better carrier and were able to get more of them. I’m not that special. No matter what I try to tell you.)
So now I don’t have to use my own minutes! I can check my e-mail everywhere! I can read blogs all the time!
My whole world has changed. Truly.
The funny thing is that I don’t even care that this now means I’m supposed to be “always available” to my colleagues. The pros of my new gadget far outweigh the cons. Besides, there’s always the “off” button.
Now if you’ll excuse me, Stella and I are going to frolick in the afternoon sunlight.
