So I just got a call this morning. The apartment I was hoping to get is a go. This means I have a lot of stuff to get in order.
One significant thing I am hoping to change with the move is to get rid of the land-line and switch to the whole cable modem + mobile phone. It should be considerably cheaper in the long haul, and this pleases me.
What I will miss however, is the nice full rich timbre of this classic phone when it rings. Or the radio call-in clarity of the connection. Or the surprise when I answer it without knowing who is on the other line.
I could go on a rant about cell phones, their annoying rings and etiquette, but I need to start cleaning house.
