Say Cheese!!

We did professional photographs erev Shabbat of the barmitzvah. I have to say that these pictures are amazing and stupendous and I am in awe of how the camera seemed to capture the essence of each child. These pictures were also awesome in that they were family shots. With me. With the KoD. Together. A family.

We had a total blast at the park posing for the professional pictures. Hanging from lamp posts and pointing at non existent things in the distance.

Tonight I got the album and the CD-Rom, within minutes the pictures were uploaded to Picasa and Facebook so the family can shepp much nachas with us. I think my men need to pose for a Jewish GQ.

So here is a pic I can share, that of me and my delicious hunky hubby the KoD.

And here is one taken at the end of the shoot as they were all walking off to the car. It’s one of my favourites.

And you know what was on my mind as I was scrolling through the pix – “I wish I would have worn heels”. I had a broken toe and couldn’t. I am so shallow sometimes….

So I am going through boxes of stuff and came across the magazine that I was in as an 18 year old. Thought I would share the picture with you. I was so young…. if anyone in England remembers CATCH magazine, I was in it.

BB, I miss you!

As you all know we are moving down south shortly. Very shortly, right, Uncle Sam? Anyway, in preparation for the move, I wanted to get a US Cell phone. It actually is cheaper to have a US phone, add a data plan for Canada etc, than to pay for the plan I already have.

But I had a contract with Ma Bell that they told me to get out of would cost me mucho moola. So I Craigslisted my BlackBerry Curve and hunkered down to wait for someone to take it off my hands.

Last night a very nice young student did just that. We called Ma Bell, dealt with the red tape which was surprisingly easy, and Bob was my uncle.

I wiped the BlackBerry of all my personal data – a must if you are selling / passing on a phone. I am bereft. I have to actually check my email on the computer. I cannot PIN nor BB Msgr my KoD until I have replaced the phone when I am next back in the States. I am unreachable unless I am home. Weird.

Remember a year ago when I got it? I did not realize then that I would fall in love with this hand held piece of technology. And what do I do to my love? I trade it in for a newer model which I have not met yet. How shallow can I be? Oh PoisonBerry I miss you!!

So the discussion now is which model to get. I really wanted a Curve because that’s what I am used to AND it comes in pink. But KoD says that the Blackberry Tour is so much better and has much better features. I will have to go to the Verizon store to check them out, but I liked the size of the Curve. It is thin and streamlined. The Tour seems to be thicker and more masculine and comes in Henry Ford’s colours “You can have any colour so long as it’s black”.

My twitter buddy, @hilzfuld, who is a techie kind of guy, recommends the Bold 9000 because of the Wifi and 3G capabilities, best screen and best keyboard. Of course I had to ask him what the heck all of that stuff means – can it get phone calls, email, text messages and does BB Msgr work on it? What the heck else do I need, do I want bells and whistles?

So Blackberry people – hit me with your recommendations. And if you are lucky enough to have had my cellphone number and PIN – delete delete delete. I will get back to you with the new ones soon enough.
