Dependancy

Isn't it funny how you don't realise how dependant you become on certain things? Like, in the way that you don't think you use your mobile phone much...until you leave it at home by accident and have a mini panic when you realise you don't have it with you and today could be the day you receive the most important call/text of your life and you'll miss it.... no? just me then? damn.

Well luckily I didn't leave my phone at home today! Phew. However, I did almost lose the will to live when I had problems getting on Facebook earlier. Now I never thought myself to be a FB obsessive, there are plenty of people I know who are on it ALL DAY EVERY DAY (seriously!) and I most certainly am not one of those people. I tend to check it now and again when I get a free minute at work and then give it a proper browse when I get home to see people's pictures and stuff. Today though I couldn't even get on it on my mobile! *panic panic panic*

I'm not even sure what I panicked for - was I missing something important? (no) would I look ignorant for not replying to messages that I couldn't read? (no). I'm slightly annoyed with myself for feeling like that to be honest. What on earth did I do with my life before the internet and social networking?! I used to know people's phone numbers by memory for a start. I used to write letters to my grandparents instead of emails, and take my time capturing good photographs because I used film so didn't have a second (or third, or fourth...) try! God damn the progression of technology. I shouldn't complain really though, it makes me think how much I take it for granted that I have access to the internet and own a computer and a mobile phone and digital camera in the first place - and I think that i'm poor!

Talking of poor...i'm seriously considering selling my pride and joy to pay some bills - My Betsy (camera). On one hand I can't bear to part with her because she is quite simply my most treasured possession and I am so proud of her, but on the other i'm a little fed up of not having enough money. Any one got any insight into this dilemma? She is probably only worth about £100 now, if that, and thats a 3rd of what she was worth brand new....but then again £100 can go a long way....but what will I do without my camera?! Grrrrr I can't decide.

Lastly, I was reading Aubrey's guest post on 'Musings of Moi' earlier today and she was talking about pushing people's buttons and pranking and it made me remember a fantastic prank me and my colleagues played on a member of our team at my old job! It only started as a little joke where we'd re-arrange things on each others desks, stick post-its to screens etc but lets just say things got a little bit out of hand one night....and, well this happened:


hehehehe. She wasn't best pleased but luckily saw the funny side of things. I'm not kidding when I say it took 3 people about half an hour to do it, good job we were working late so the office was quiet and no one saw :P

My mood has somewhat bettered today as J has got 3 days off work now so roll on games night and whatever else we decide to do! Yay! xxx

I panic without my phone. Ah, what kind of camera do you have? You could sell it to a good home... and know it's safe! :)
