Phones: We finally did it. Every member of the Kally Casa has new phones! Yea! For those looking for something for the Uber Geek in their life, I suggest the G1 (I think I have also heard this referred to as the android.) It is similar to the sidekick but smaller, sleeker and with more techy options. Four guys at Computer Co have purchased this phone and all owners rave about it. I overheard one saying something about having skype on the phone. Originally, Mr C was holding out for the Blackberry Bold to be released but was swayed by the G1 and I haven't heard a complaint about it from him yet. For those like me who want: email, a camera and for the phone to be pink, go for the Sidekick. I have the 08 which is a lot smaller than past sidekicks and it fulfills all of my above listed requirements....with the exception of the whole pink thing for the time being. It came with 2 shells: black & green. I am ordering a couple of pink shells for future use and have told everyone if they need to get me a gift to get me a new shell for the phone. You can't go wrong with pink. Miss B also got a phone. Before you guys freak out on me please realize this is NOT her phone. We always keep an extra cell for out of state family visitors to use since we don't have or need a land line. We let B pick out the phone with one stipulation: Non-techy Granny has to be able to easily use this phone. Granny is 80 something years old and needs a user friendly phone with a clear cut green-call button and red-hang up button. Done, Done & Done. The whole Kally Family is happily using new phones.
Here is my phone open and closed. Isn't it a cutie?
Cards: I attended a holiday card-making party this weekend hosted by Scrappy Girl BUT didn't finish with the entire set of cards sooooo I left them at Scrappy Girl's house to finish on Wednesday evening. Some very lucky friends of mine could be receiving a special Kally-made card. Just make sure I have your address. Really, some of these cards are so cute I will have a hard time parting with them.
Italian Food: After the card making party a bunch of us went out for dinner. We had decided upon Mama Mias. I was super excited to try this place out since I found out they have eggplant parm on the menu. Well, upon arriving I realized we were going to have a wait. Not a big deal. It was Saturday night after all I pretty much expected a wait anywhere I went. So I go up to the hostess to get my name on the list and tell her that I would like a table for a party of six. She looks at me like I am nut case since I don't have six people crowded around me and asks if I have a reservation. I kindly tell her no I do not. Then she proceeds to frown at me and shake her head. "Too Bad" she says. Too Bad?! What?!?! What kind of hostess tells a patron Too Bad? Then she tells me we will have to wait at least 45 minutes. (This wouldn't have been a big deal to me if the whole too bad thing hadn't happened.) I tell her never mind and walk out the door with the rest of the crew and we headed over to the Macaroni Grill. Service was good, the food was great and they had eggplant parmesan. Yum!
**Tonight I am going to attempt something I get at this place called Noodles. Easy cheesy and filling: Cavatappi pasta with greek olives and feta & mozzerella cheese. I think I'll have Mr C make the garlic cheesy bread. Sound good?
