A little less than a happy high
Reasons #4301 and #4302 why I should get a PDA
#4301 - Yesterday, I nearly missed a meeting off-site because I had placed it on the 20th. Never mind that the 20th is on a Saturday and therefore outside of the normal business week. The response was to take the train home, change into suit-like attire, and walk outside to discover that I had left my car parked at the Alewife garage Tuesday night. Luckily, roommate was home and I was able to get a ride to my ride.

#4302 - Today, I managed to miss a meeting with my "special friend" because I left too early. I didn't realize this until after I had arrived in Brookline. After wrestling with options, I decided that it was probably not in my best interests to take a 3 hour lunch and returned to my office. This, of course, will lead to a discussion of why I sabotaged our meeting. Ah, joy.

What's ironic is that I am very attuned to the timing of other things. I have yet to forget ceramic studio time, and I've been accutely aware of the schedule for the beer I'm brewing. I have been so befuddled that I have had difficulty following what day it is, but nonetheless I have been able to keep track of the things that I know really matter to me.

Current Mood: dumb
Current Music: The Flaming Lips, "Fight Test"

a PDA could complicate matters. it'd be just one more thing you'd have to worry about and remember. allah save you if you ever left it at home after relying on it for a set period of time.

the closest i come to PDAs is my phone. little even reminders for truly important stuff that i know i'll forget about i put in. everything else ... well if it were that important i would have created an event reminder for it now wouldn't i!

In my case, of course, PDA stands for "Perky Drone Assistant." How cool would that be?

I've actually been thinking that a PDA would be a good thing for a while now, but I've not been able to justify the expense. I'm coming closer.

Did you know that many cellphones have a calendar function?

I could completely geek out and get one of those combo thingies.

I live for combo thingies.

That icon is certainly.... interesting. And/or frightening, I haven't decided yet.

I thought it suited me better than the skinny old man in American Gothic
