These aren't the Droids you're looking for

I dropped my dolly in the dirt.

I asked my dolly "Did it hurt?"

But all that she could say was

"Waah, waah, waah."

When I dropped my most favorite Droid Classic at Toad Suck Square during the festival this year, I picked up a Samsung burner phone to use because it has a slideout keyboard and I'm too lazy to learn how to use an iphone. With a new device came a new data plan where I'm asked to decide in advance how much data I'll use. "Waah, waah, waah."

Going from unlimited to 2 made me appreciate Wi-Fi where I never knew it existed. Conway is leaps and bounds ahead of neighboring communities and free Wi-Fi. For example, I never hit a hotspot while I was in Amarillo, Texas. Or at least my burner phone didn't beep at me if I did.

Now we enter phase 2 -- I need a tablet for work -- says the girl who still hasn't drank the Apple kool aid. And we'll soon have a Log Cabin app for Android although I'm pretty committed to mobile site. "Waah, waah, waah."

So, I'm waiting on the Google Nexus 7 tablet. Jay tells me I need to wait on the 4G LTE version so I won't have to depend on Wi-Fi. I do what Jay says since he earned a spot in my apocalyptic foxhole (alongside Channing Tatum) last year when we moved into Federal Plaza.

So, I wait. I plan my trips around known Wi-Fi areas in Conway - downtown Conway, Starbucks, hotels, AT&T, Hendrix Village area - lots of food in those areas too. So now I'm paying more money for my new phone and eating more too. Nice. "Waah, waah, waah."
