I had a friend when I was in college that I tended bar with. He had 2 tarantulas, one was a beautiful rose-pink color. It was quite friendly. The other, brown one, not so much.

I saw a pretty pink one at a local pet shop, and was tempted to bring it home, but due to my cleaning lady's extreme aversion to live crickets, which tarantulas eat (and big spiders) it's probably not a good idea.....

I will start to pay closer attention to my grapes.

I spent a lot of the day cleaning out closets. I have 3 huge trash bags full of clothes for Goodwill thus far. Am not looking forward to tackling the basement and garage.

And I do not like typing on this tiny phone, Verizon informed me I was out of wifi GB so iPad is off limits for a couple days. Grrrrr.

Watching the Finals of The Voice...tomorrow night is going to be heartbreaking. All three have careers no matter what happens tomorrow. They are all stars!

What a simple life I lead. No tiny phone, no iPad, Kindle, etc. Just a simple phone that makes and receives calls, and a desk computer with a large flat screen. I have never owned a laptop and have no desire to. I read a book the old fashion way. I have to turn the paper pages. I do read the news on the computer though. I got tired of trying to recycle the newspapers. Had to take them down to the first floor trash room. Pain in the backside.

I can't use my desktop either, otherwise I'll get charged outrageous overage charges by Verizon. So now I'm stuck with iPhone, for 2 days, which has unlimited 3G. Everything else is wifi, and subject to overage charges. It will reset in 2 days, and I'll be able to use iPad again.

So for now, iPhone is the only computer I've got. At least you have your desktop, Addie!
