I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

crisscrossed lines!

… if that ain’t life’s ultimate metaphor, I don’t know what is. Beautiful iPhone pic taken while stopped at a traffic light on a bleak autumn November day! You can see the sun willing itself to peek through the heavy cloud cover, silhouetting the plane, as it passes preparing to land. Hmmm, can this shot win some sorta iPhone pic snappin’ award, lol?!

new iOS 7

… downloaded iOS 7 yesterday evening. Took 6 hours to complete, thankfully it went off without a hitch. Funny how a new operating system transforms your phone into a completely NEW one. Still up in the air about the 5s … unsure if I’ll upgrade or not even though I’m eligible. My 4 is in incredible shape, 16 GB, and has a gorgeous hand crafted after-market exotic wood back to boot. Unfortunately, the person I was gonna sell it to (at a discounted friend’s price no less, lol) def won’t be buying it. She never knew a good thing anyways … even when she had it! Her loss!

… after midnight – screenshot after downloading. Love the new look! Yep, still kept the same pic – ain’t no quitter … know a good thing when I have (had) it!!

ain’t no iPhoney

Where do I begin? For once, my giddiness has gotten the better of me … don’t have a clue, am somewhat stumped where to start, lol. But I’ll try. Sorry distracted, digressing … soaking it all in … got a woodie as an alternate post just popped into my head … whaddya think, lol?? Ok here I go, this all started/happened when the iPhone 5 was released, a week later I believe. Innocently placed my iP4 in the cupholder while driving and 20 minutes later when I stopped for gas noticed my glass back was cracked. As God as my witness, I did NOTHING … it JUST cracked. I was heartbroken, and when home taped it preventing further cracking, slapped on a case too … it’s been on ever since, hoping to keep everything tight, not compromising its operation. Let time pass without replacing it only to let the iPhone 5 hoopla pass … have you ever tried shopping at an Apple Store? Yep, nuts. Finally went in and quickly accessed I’d be stuck with the bill replacing it, which isn’t so bad but since I didn’t break it … didn’t drop it … nothing … and was hoping my pleas would fall on big-fat empathetic ears, but fearing they wouldn’t… AND I didn’t want my good luck winning streak, everyone seeing things my way coming to an end … not to mention the earliest Genius Bar appointment available was 2 days away. Are you kidding me? No thanks … fuck you Apple, I’m looking elsewhere, lol!! Eventually my search ended with Monolith … wood is good!! Love their exotics … and after great deliberation, went with the wenge. Placed my order November 29, arrived December 28 … one month later, exactly. Two thoughts; 1: Good things come to those who wait. 2: What the hell took so long? Now, that’s a motherfucking pick em, lol!! 😀

unwrapping patiently, proverbially pissing you know what with excitement

doin’ it St. Louis style!!

We used to go for wings back in the day when there was only two places serving up great wings ’round here. And one, Bistro On Avenue was the place that spawned the St. Louis chain. Now, there’s a smörgåsbord of places to pick and choose from, but Tiffany K had her heart set on this venerable girl (the bar & grill … NOT her, lol) and Tuesday was always the day of choice with their half price specials … and was a time we didn’t miss many either … now we rarely go – sure was fun to relive old times!!

A few pics courtesy Tiffany K (and her iPhone 4S camera):

My Suicide order (minus 1 wing + ketchup drenched fries) …

Fries and tasty dill-dip  …

Rolling Rock Ale, and more dill dipping, lol …

The obligatory bill (pic by moi – and my iPhone 4 camera, lol) …
