I just had a really good talk with one of my coworkers about her 14-year-old daughter and music videos, and I had to recommend to her that she leave work IMMEDIATELY and go to Bay Street Video and buy the boxed Directors Set of videos by Spike Jonze, Chris Cunningham and Michel Gondry. And then it occurred to me that I should tell all of you the same thing (especially
Speaking of buying things and videos…
I have officially abandoned all hope of finding my cell phone. Possibly it will turn up in the distant future, like Wesley, the cat I once accidentally lost, who ended up missing for almost two months, and was actually just hiding in the basement very confused and hungry.
Except the cell phone probably won’t be hungry.
And it will meow less.
And not have diarrhea for a week.
But I digress.
It is time to move on, to look at new options, new plans and new phones. Please advise me, oh wise and all-knowing LJ readers!
Three Choices for a New Cell Phone:
1) Stay with Telus, on their $25 ‘Big Deal Promo’ plan which I am contractually obligated to until October, which gives me a measly 150 daytime minutes, shitty 3 message/3 day expiry message centre, and makes me pay an additional $3 for call display and $6.50 for system access fees, as well as ¢25 e911 Emergency. This option entails buying a new phone at full cost, and paying a $25 changeover fee.
2) Change to Bell, on their $20/month OPSEU Corporate plan, with free activation, e911 Emergency for ¢25 per month, System Access Fee for $4.50 per month, Includes for FREE!: 300 Anytime Local Minutes, Call Display, Call Forwarding, Call Waiting, Conference Calling, Message Centre (Voice Mail), Unlimited Weekends (8pm Friday to 7am Monday), Detailed Billing, Per Second Billing and Unlimited Local Calling free for the first 3 Months as well as Unlimited Picture and Video Messaging (with Camera Phone purchase) free for 2 Months. This option entails paying $100 to break my contract, and if I enter another 3-year contract, getting a new phone from Bell either for free or for $50 (camera phone) or $100 (tiny camera phone with video capability).
3) Face the fact that the Gods do not want me to have a cell phone, and let it go. Cancel contract and live a happy, un-cell burdened life between work and home. Live with not having a phone at the condo and just use MSN when there.
