Matt's Iphone #3 - bargain prices at ATT

Speaking of iphone (e:hodown,50930)

(e:matthew) is on iphone number 3. The first one died when he got so excited about obama being elected that he threw his phone on the floor and it shattered. The second one just died yesterday. When the first one died we went to the apple store and ended up paying $199 for a new one.

This time I had the idea to go ahead and search for refurb models. Believe it or not AT&T has refurbished iphone 3g's for only $49. I wish I knew that the first time. Not only that it came with a new charger and headphone. The two of those cost more than $49 at the apple store without the phone. I know because we have bought plenty of them.

It comes with a 90 day warranty too, which is the same warranty length he got on his last refurbished iphone from the apple store at $199.

This picture is very shiny but I did it on purpose to show the lack of scratches. It is perfect condition.

You need an AT&T contract - I got it from here

The 3G is slightly slower than the 3GS but it is much fast that the 2G iphone. It also has no compass or video recording. Also the shipping was fast. I went with the free shipping and it came in two days.

Gabe Mayer of Buffalo

Hey Gabe Mayer,
You don't know me and I don't have contact info for you but I bought the house you used to live in on Linwood and now someone is looking for you. I figure maybe you will google yourself sometime and see this.

The person sent the following message:

Please call 716-397-4265 when you can. Trying to find Gabe Mayer. He designed a website for my company but can't get through to him. Any info would be great



Maybe this will help you two find each other.

Is this even snow anymore?


What gives these chunky black mounds such great stability?

I officially love my kitchenaid


The first thing I am made is coconut meringue cookies. I know it's
lazy but I really enjoy "just press" mixing. It sure beats the hand
crank mixer I have been using the last ten years.

Trip to Times Beach

We went to Times Beach this afternoon and spent time in the sun. I even took off my shirt for a while to maximize vitamin D production. The ice was still pretty thick, I walked out pretty far till I heard that scary cracking - the titanic hit an iceberg - noise and headed back in. It didn't stop me from skating around off shore for a bit which was so great in the sun. It made the very top very wet and slippery.

Tonight we are off to dinner with Robert and James. What a busy weekend.

The best birthday ever

The massage at The massage Studio on Allen was awesome. I never had anyone massage by butt or feet before, it was great. No, I know what you are thinking, but there was no happy ending.

Then I got lots of choxie, plus the entire O.C. series on DVD plus bonus material. Maybe (e:mike) will watch it with me.

Then, I got a new albino pet bird. I love it. I am going to name it albini.
image

Then we went to one of the nicest dinners I have had at Rue Franklin . We were one of the first people to arrive. By the time we left it was packed. I had squab (Roast squab with Belgian endive, raisins, pinenuts and cardamom. Served medium-rare ) which is basically a baby pigeon

image

The weird part is that is was borderline raw but on purpose. I actually thought it tasted pretty great - I would get it again. I hope they are raised on a farm and not wild. Apparently, I like the taste of raw pigeon.

So the funniest part was about halfway through the meal in comes an 80 year old guy and his wife/companion who looked about 50. She had breasts bigger than lola ferrari. I know I exaggerate all the time but this was so for real. Everyone in the restaurant was staring at her. I wonder what that must feel like. They were literally larger than basketballs approaching beach balls. Basically just like this:

image

When we got home (e:terry) and (e:matthew) gave me a bigger box of choxie chocolates and one of the best gifts of all, the gift that keeps on giving - a kitchenaid icecream maker attachment for the new kitchenaid mixer I got from my parents.

33


I can't believe it but I'm 33. Last night we had dinner at my
parents. Lamb, shrimp, artichokes and dandelion plus clams casino -
yum!

Then I spent midnight with my brother drinking which was fun. I did
not have 33 shots for 33 as he suggested.

We tried to go to ETS afterwards but they were closed. Their
drivethru continues to talk even after it's closed. It must be some
automated system.

Then I spent the day playing with my computer and we are going to Rue
Franklin for dinner where they have oysters in the half shell, yum.

In between I scheduled a massage over at The Massage Studio on Allen.
Should be a good day.

I'm still sad (e:hodown) ditched me for the baby. I guess I'll keep the
bag of hello kitty stuff my mom got for her.

The fucking dump is empty


That junk store gone junk yard was being emptied out into a dumpster.
Finally! Now maybe they can make some progress on allentown's most
ghetto block. It needs to be fixed or destroyed from there to the
next corner on north pearl.

Remember when I called the police about the plague of flies in there.
I still wonder what died?
