Chris, thank you so much for that. The last big paragraph should be engraved in stone.

Next time you "don't read" something, that blog entry is a prime candidate.

Just sayin'. Razz

By the way, a friend of mine has a GPS device that his older brother sent him for xmas a few years ago, and now he wants a newer one. Then again, he wants an iPod Nano thingie, too. Which would be the better gift for this season? Confused

Maybe what we need is a machine not to tell us WHERE we are, but WHO we are. Something that would make us look into our hearts and answer questions honestly about what is right and wrong, about what it actually means to be free, and human, and humane. About whether we really want to live up to the values of our faith and our country, not the manipulated dogma of people with a selfish agenda. We need a machine that tells us what it is to be decent, and kind, and forgiving, and generous, and just, and fair, and humble. And not just a voting machine, (although we can use that until the new thing comes out). Something cool.


I'd like to request this in a revised letter to Santa.

wow man, you are on a blog tear. I can't keep up.

I haven't read the Tin Man one because I haven't watched Tin Man yet, and and I'm wondering if I should. Should I?

And I laughed every time you imitated people getting on you for not writing your book. This is what I predict .... Your book will get done.

Finally, I accidentally walked into a Muslim neighborhood in London in 2003. ONE of THE scariest mistakes I've made. I was the only woman on the streets. and I was LO-OST! Sadly, GPS's only confuse me more.

I now have Frankie Goes To Hollywood stuck in my head. Gonna hit me (hit me) Hit me with those laser beams ... now now now ... Relax, don't do it.

I loves my Nano, Feef. Dexter at the gym, that's alls I'm saying. Also cheaper than like 99% of the GPS devices.

The only one cheaper than a Nano is paying some guy twenty bucks to follow you around saying "There ya are" repeatedly.

Beg pardon? I think I've just been insulted.... Shocked

...and since when are GPS units coming down in price?? I was using one all day today that cost $20,000. Of course, it can tell you where you are down to about 10cm - definitely not your average recreational use unit... Laughing

That would make me really paranoid...

Just got a new phone this week, since the old one was on life support-
should I worry that they'll get me next?

Well, if it's like mine, you can turn off the "GPS always on" feature so that it ONLY works when you're making a 911 call. Check the "Settings" menu.

(gotta protect my sweet zen from those mean old death rays!) Smile
