Before you read this post, I totally own up to what I did and admit that it was completely my fault **
On July 2nd, I had planned on going hiking at Tiffany Falls + Bruce’s Trail in Hamilton. I had slept in and was behind schedule in the morning to meet my crew at Denny’s in Mississauga for brunch. I dumped my Blackberry and iPhone (yes, I have one of each… long story!) in my purse, filled up my 1L water bottle and dumped it in there as well. I left it my bag on the passenger seat and realized I forgot my sunglasses so ran in the house to get it. When I went back to the car, my seat was WET! I realized I didn’t close the water bottle tight enough and it drowned my two phones. AHHHH!
Anyways, so I was pretty bummed the whole day. Everyone told me to NOT TURN IT ON and soak it in rice because rice absorbs all the water from the battery/phone etc. I disassembled it and left it in the car to dry for about 3 hours. After hiking (which killed me for days afterwards!) I thought, “Hmm… 3 hours is enough for the phone to dry, right?” and turned it on. A white screen came on and I short circuited it! BOO! So I got a new iPhone on Tuesday. iPhone 4S… and I’m so addicted and app-crazy.
I downloaded Instagram (love LOVE it!), Lemon (wallet app), Michael’s coupon thingy, Weight Watchers (think I’ll delete this), LOSEIT.CA (tracks my daily calories consumed) along with ANGRY BIRDS (which I suck at), Solitaire (for my mom), Reversi (kind of boring now) and some Mickey Mouse dance-a-thon for Zach and Talking Tom (also for Zach).
Look! He’s tweeting!
This is a tribute to my Blackberry. It’s been 2.5 years and I will miss you. We’ve had some good and bad times together. You’ve helped me answer my business e-mails in a timely manner and stood your ground when everyone made fun of your creator (RIM). You were a champ when BBM didn’t work and been with me since I started my journey. I know you were mad at me when you found out I cheated on you with the iPhone 4 and that’s why you took his life and your own life at the same time. I WILL MISS YOU! Now you will remain an empty shell in my drawer.
On a separate note: does anyone want a water-damaged iPhone 4 and Blackberry?
