I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad

(My first attempt at a song lyric/post title.)

I have wanted a Droid since before they first came out. We were in the middle of buying a house (in fact, the notary that came over for our signatures had his new release day Droid on him, and I was distracted from house signing for a few minutes by shiny Droid talk). Anyway, in the middle of buying a house didn't seem like the best time.

But now that we've owned the house for ten months? Surely now is a good time to get a Droid ($199 with Verizon's "New Every Two" plan) and an extra $30 a month for the cheapest data plan? Right? Um, no. But I can fit it into my budget, so I'm getting closer to doing it. Which is why I groan and start singing, "I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad".

Updated to add: Doh! I meant to add a couple of LifeHacker links about the Droid to this post. (Since these links were really the whole point of the post, and not my Droid hunger, per se.) The Complete Android Guide and Best Android Apps for Getting Things Done


  1. Suzi, I hear ya sista. I want one of those smart phone thingies so bad too. First thing next year, when I get my car paid off, and after Christmas fundage comes in, I'm getting one! That and digital cable. Of course it would be so much easier if I could just get picked up by an agent, sell my book, and get a big fat advance. HA!

    BTY: I tagged you on my blog to answer eight questions. Have fun!

    I bought it and I love it. I've spent I don't know how many hours downloading free aps, and this morning I bought my first one. (Tasker)

    I also saw you tagged me :) I'll try to post at lunch today :)


Thank you for posting a comment! I know that sounds a little needy, and maybe it is. I mean, I don't need comment validation to know that I exist, right? But I like to know that someone else (maybe you?) has read what I wrote and felt moved enough to reply. So, thank you.
