New Phone!

Monsieur GZMoohoo offered a bit of a preview over on his blog, but here is the main event:

New Phone!
Ta-da! NEW PHONE! 

As you can tell by the excellent reflection of our ceiling fan, the screen is entirely unblemished. And I decided to go with the gray case, for now. I do have quite a few colors to choose from. I could match my outfit on any given day.

Anyway, it was slightly more complicated than anticipated. When I filled out the online insurance claim on Saturday, they had me click through a series of screens saying, essentially, "Please confirm this is the phone you have . And now, please confirm that this is the phone we will be sending you ." I did not pay as much attention to that as I perhaps should have, so they sent me the phone I had previous to the broken phone as that is what AT&T still had in their system as my designated device. Oops.

Fortunately, it is still quite a nice phone - 4G, newest version of Android, etc. Unfortunately, the SIM card in the broken phone is smaller than the SIM card in the NewPhone, so I had to go over to the actual AT&T store (in which the layout has changed since I was there on Saturday...) to get a new SIM card. The guy was very helpful and got a new SIM card set up right away. He also suggested that perhaps I should put my phone in a case from now on. Hmm, you think?

Also at Chez Gzmoohoo, we had some delicious pot roast and a really lovely chat. It's always strange to go over to what decidedly USED to be my house, but I know that I am always, always welcome. In any case, it is definitely pot roast weather.

Pot Roast
See? Carrots, potatoes, onions and some beef, slow cooked all day. YUM!!

I got home to find the cats in a playful mood. Here is an attempted photo of Calvin. He's a bit blurry with speed:

He's much cuter in this one:

Yes, you are indeed ALWAYS welcome! Calvin looks kind of imperious up on the cat shelf.

Yum, the pot roast looks tasty.

I'm glad the phone story had a happy ending.

It's an odd transition, if memory serves. From both sides of it. The adult child in the parents home. Always interesting.
