get out of jail free-squandered

monday, 09 february, 2008 kitty joe

i had to play the self card way too early in this project. i was hoping to save it for an emergency near the end of the semester. but i was a space cadet and forgot to ask the artist who came by the shop if i could photograph him, and just like that, he was gone!

yesterday i said goodbye to many old texts i'd been saving on my sim card. because a refurbished iphone may have fallen like stardust into my hands. i'm officially obsessed. desktop g5, macbook pro laptop and iphone, you've stollen my soul. ah, but for sweet reward. but backing to the nostalgic parting. there were announcements of my sister's engagement and pregnancy. encouragement from xavier when applying to college after over a decade off. excited reports from mieke after her first date with ezra and loud voicemails from rose and ginger thanking me for big birds. this soul i sold for apple.

I lost all of my nostalgic texts when I got my new cell. I didn't even realize they would leave, I thought they would transfer to the new phone. Back to you...an iPhone! That's awesome, I'm green with envy! :)

Cool shot too, I really like the angle.
