even though best buy is the devil, i went there today to buy a new phone. it's kind of sad to find out that i can be bought for $75-100.
when i turn on this new phone for the first time, it has a walking panda on the screen. strange. i wonder who programs these things, and why they think people want to look at pandas, racecars, or dogs on front porches. or maybe i'm just some sort of a freak to think these are strange choices for a screensaver.
i went to Second Ascent in Ballard today with Rachel. She's looking for a backpack for an expedition later this summer to the Hoh Rainforest. I'm thinking about going, but I hadn't realized that a person could end up needing to take out a bank loan just to be outfitted for a walk in the woods.
We're taking a more laid back camping trip to Orcas this weekend, so that will be a good way to gauge my enthusiasm.
For now, I guess I should get ready for Dante's -- no special equipment required.
