I woke up this morning and my phone was toast.  I drove to the T-Mobile store and waited 10 min for them to open.  They helped me call and file an insurance claim.  Then I had to take my laptop to the library and finalize the process over email.  If all goes smoothly, I should have a new phone in the mail by Thursday.

After all of that, I cooked myself some lunch.  I had purchased a couple pieces of steak, to put on top of a salad.  I decided to put a dollop of bacon grease in the pan and heat it up before I put the steak in.  As the steak was sizzling, I shook some Montreal Steak Seasoning on top.  Let me tell you, this steak was so tasty that I felt bad ruining it with vegan food.  I saved the other half of the steak, and ate it with Sweet Baby Rays, as God intended.

Just before I started cooking, I wanted to turn on some music.  I realized that without my cell phone, i was unable to access my streaming music.  This CD player has been kicking around my desk lately.  I think I purchased this player when I was 15 years old or so.  I’ve literally owned it for like 18 years.  I opened it up, and there was a CD still inside.  I removed the CD, popped in 2 batteries and was off to the races.  I went thru a huge pile of CDs that I have had kicking around for just as many years.  It has been fun listening to my old music today.

It has been interesting to be so disconnected today.  I found myself wanting to take more photos, but not having my phone to do so.  We shall see how these few days go without a cell phone.

Thanks for reading my short post today.  Do you still have any old technology floating around?  I can’t believe how well my CD player works still.  I remember reading Consumer Reports magazines for hours before I chose this model.
