Reminder

About a month ago, I got a new phone. I am not one to read an instruction manual if there is ANY way to avoid it, so I just learned the new phone by playing with it and exploring all the new features, including the new aps that came with the phone. Once I figured out the basics of what I would use the most, I forgot about the rest.

Until the other day, when I noticed the already forgotten "Reminders" ap on the main page of my phone. I clicked on it and saw a note I had left myself a month ago that I had forgotten about (thanks a lot for the reminder, ap! Jeez, do your job!!).

At the time I wrote the note I was planning a camping trip and was in full on "oh my gosh, I'm going to forget everything and we're going to die in the wilderness* if I forget one single thing" mode. So the second note was in reference to that (I did remember to bring the can opener, if you were wondering).

The first thing on the list had nothing to do with the camping trip and was just a general reminder. I somehow keep forgetting to do it though.




I wonder if there's an ap that can help me check that first one off my list.

Ha! I love those two reminders together. That could be the title of a chapter of your memoirs... :) I feel like there's got to be some kind of app for the first one, but it's probably just eHarmony for iPhone. And I WISH there was a can opener ap - some kind of laser that came out of your phone or something?

Can I just "Like" Katherine's comment. She said everything I didn't realize I wanted to say. Does that make sense?
Maybe I'll just go with the oldy-but-goody-, "I concur"

My mom and dad joke that he married her because she had $100 in her bank account and her own iron.

Perhaps you should look for a boy with lots of canned goods.

Great news: I have $100 in my bank account AND i own my own iron!

I second Katherine on the memoirs. Seriously, I was thinking about it last night on my drive home. When I read Tina Fey's book I was thinking you could write just as funny stories about your dating life and quest to fall in love. All those stories you don't quite want to share on your blog. Think about it... :)

Feel free to stop by any time with a can opener. I'll give you the 37-second tour of my food storage. Then you can decide if you want meet my parents.

P.S. Women who bring electric can openers on camping trips are considered "high maintenance".

Elizabeth Downie said...

I am going to have to disagree whole heartedly on that point, Mark! We ate a lot of canned food. How were we supposed to open it!? I don't think preparing ahead to EAT is high maintenance. And I'd sure the men who camped with us would agree. Since they got to eat said food.

Mark said...

ELECTRIC can openers. Would you plug it in the same place as your hair dryer?

Elizabeth Downie said...

Oh I see. Yeah, it wasn't electric.

But we did have electricity at the campsite and I don't see anything wrong with that.

I hate when people say "that's not camping." Camping can be any kind of experience you want it to be. :)

Mark said...

I was hoping it was just that word you missed.

So I can call it camping when I crawl into a bed that hasn't been made since Monday?

My landlord frowns on toasting marshmallows in the middle of my living room.

Elizabeth Downie said...

Haha, sorry Mark! I'm a little feisty. I wasn't mad for real. I just like picking fights. ;)

And yes, that does count as fighting.

And thanks Sara and Katherine! I'll see if I can think of any interesting stories!

I think you're good to go, Elizabeth, with $100 AND an iron. What more could anyone want?

nes said...
