Another birthday come and gone.  No biggie, right?  Right.

I got some nice calls.  Some good emails.  A few cards.  Even some folks at work seemed to know about the day – and clearly passed the word around.  That last part didn’t go down well with me.  Do I really want some guy from IT I barely know coming up to me and wishing me a  ‘happy birthday’?   I don’t think so.

I begrudgingly let a few of them take me out to lunch.  It was a good salad and I got a piece of cake out of it, so it wasn’t all bad. But I really don’t like making a big deal about the day – I think I’ve said that here every year I’ve had this blog.  I mean, I’m ok to do stuff with Denton, but I’m a low key guy when it comes to having attention brought to me that way.  Yes – even for a Leo.

I mean – I want attention, but only when I call it to myself.  I am a Leo. Not just because I got birthed.  Let it be for my superior dancing around the kitchen skills, or my way around an Excel spreadsheet.  Yes, I’m a dancing geek.

So, why the “Call Me” header?  Because Denton got me the present:  iPhone 3G (16 gig!), white back.   I was hoping, of course, but who knew?

Well, I did, kind of.  He calls me at work to tell me that ‘oh, your cell phone isn’t currently working.  I’ve had the service cut off.’   Since I have Sprint and theiPhones are on AT&T, I kind of figured out he had done something.

Don’t go thinking he was being completely altruistic,  he got himself one too (black back).   Now I just need to figure out how to use it exactly.   I mean  I know how to answer the phone and dial it, but I have to get my contacts moved over, load my music, set up my email, etc.

I’m quite excited, a little nervous and seemingly somewhat guilty for having such a device.  But I am thrilled to be getting rid of my Treo and Sprint.  The only two places I couldn’t use it:  home and work.   ZERO signal.  None.  It was so frustrating.

I know Becky and Andrew love theirs, so it must be good.

Oh, and I’ll be able to blog from it and Twitter away, I guess.   There will be no stopping me!!!!

which btw, is comical because about the only two words they don’t sing in Spanish are ‘Call Me’.
