Ok, I have to admit that I love having a camera on my phone. I love having the camera if for no other reason than when I'm shopping and see a sign in TJ Maxx that says "Active Bottoms" I can take a picture of it and show it to my friend James when we're walking in the woods. And then tell him why the sign delighted me.
I also have photos of the star trek pez dispensers that I saw in the drug store. Kirk, Spock and Sulu are stored right beside a photo of a big eyed, big headed neon green alien parakeet toy that I saw in the grocery store.
A few days ago I attempted to take a photo of a garter snake with mixed results. The results were mixed because a) he was moving, b) the phone camera is pretty limited and c) right after I discovered him twelve of his siblings found my sandal interesting and slithered over it. I like snakes, but thirteen snakes that close to naked toes made me make a girly squeaky noise and back up. So there's no picture of the snake on my phone.
My favorite photos on my phone at the moment are in no particular order a picture of a friend's dog, another picture of a different friend's dog, a picture of a boy polly pocket doll in a powder blue tuxedo that looks just like someone I know in real life, my daughter rockin a hat, a book jacket cover with the words "Santa versus Satan", a picture of some awesome awesome hooker shoes with clear platform heels with goldfish embedded in the Lucite, a picture of Lauren giggling, a tee shirt with snoopy dancing, a picture of a bowl of soup that my friend used noodles to draw a smiley face in …no alcohol was involved…a toddler tee shirt that says "chicks dig me" with of course chicks on the graphic, a really hideous painting of elvis on velvet, a neat vw bug (also powder blue), a GIANT toad sign that was outside the nature center one day, some ducks with their bottoms sticking up in the air while they forage for something on the bottom of the pond (that never gets old, cracks me up EVERY time I see it), a picture of some amazing polka dot rubber rain boots, and my robots, gotta have my robots, red wind up metal Schylling robots…. one of which is my wallpaper for the inside of my camera.
The best part about having this collection of oddities is if I'm stuck somewhere with no book in my purse (which would almost never happen) I can scroll through and look at the photos that I've collected and grin at them.
They cost me nothing to collect…take up no closet space ….they give me enjoyment….and I got to tell you guys about it…..win/win situation.
Oh, and I forgot….there is the flickering flame image that came with the phone. I use it when I want an encore at a concert.
Have a great Sunday everybody, I'll be off watching my friend Brad starring in a play. Maybe I'll take a picture of him on stage with my camera phone…nah, like the snake, he'll probably be moving around too much, but I can guarantee that even though I have front row seats and some members of the cast are in the legal profession, none of the actors will slither over my sandals…. because I'm wearing closed toe shoes to the performance.
