I have become one of "those" people...

God help me.

Okay, it was on Sunday you may remember that I first took posession of my precioussss:
Well, I have some bad news.

No, my precioussss is fine. I am slowly getting the hang of it, and I fall deeper and more madly in love with it every day.

But...it's heavier than a regular cell phone. And it's a little harder to hear when I'm talking. And, umm..you know, safety concerns and all...

Okay, I did it. I went out yesterday and bought one of those obnoxious bluetooth earpieces. I am now one of those people I have always made fun of. Those dorks walking around with this little blue earpiece wrapped around their ear, like they're soooo hip and self important.
Well, I've uh...kinda changed my viewpoint on that.

Mrs. Fab hates them too. In fact, when we were picking it out she emphatically told me that the one condition I could have the PDA under was that I could not get an earpiece for it.

I had to sit her down the other day to plead my case. I was so grave and serious about it that I'm pretty sure before I said what was on my mind she was thinking that I was going to tell her that I was gay, or that I have a collection of human heads, or that I really do keep lemurs in the shed and go out there at night to do unnatural things to them.

By the time I blurted out my need for an earpiece she was so relieved that she agreed.

Sigh...as if I didn't have enough angst and self-loathing. Now I have an earpiece. I hate myself.

Still and all, it's pretty cool :)

I love lemurs, also (but in a more natural, wholesome way unlike "somebody" we all know).

Those earpieces remind me of Lt. Uhura on the Enterprise. Planning on going to any Star Trek conventions?

I think there is a support group for this.

Anon--Exactly!

Lorraine--Someone took her happy pills this morning!

Dick--I am begging you man, try some decaf :)

Dick--What could be more natural than the love between a man and his lemur?

Nanuk--Not in this lifetime, or any other...

Blogarita--Gosh, I hope so!

I've just come up with a great idea to make your bluetooth less noticeable.

Here goes...why don't you go to a joke shop and purchase a fake ear and stick that on top of it. Voila! Nobody will ever know you are wearing it. :)

Now I know what happened to my heads! If you had just asked, you could have borrowed them!

That thing will make you look like somebody on Star Trek. I refuse to ever have one. I am strange enough without sticking something obnoxious on my ear! I have also recently realized my cell is a electronic leash and don't like it soo much anymore.

I have a bluetooth and I love it! But I havent used it in a while, I cant seem to get it loud enough so I can hear. I have some hearing loss, you would think I would hear BETTER but its not true.

Beam me up Scotty.......

I'm so ashamed of you that I can't even comment right now. Although, I do have a concern for public safety so if you're telling m e that the only reason that you got it is so that you can drive safely, then I shall *gulp* accept it.

Blogger Sandi said...

My question is.. why do they call it Bluetooth when it goes in your ear?

Wear it with pride, Fab!

and I am still scrounging around my money to by my own PRECIOUS. :)

BWHAHAHAHA! That is just funny.

BTW, what color teeth did the other PDA cell phones have?

9:21 AM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Suze--True, but they will wonder why one of my ears is twice the size of the other!

Blair--I am WELL aware! LOL

Katt--Well you need SOME kind of leash!

Mel--Huh? Speak up please...

Leave--If that will help you sleep at night, go for it! LOL

Sandi--That is one of the eternal questions..

Lynda--Mauve

I don't hate you. I love you all the more for your weakness and your need to be like everyone else...self-important. I just want to remind you, however, that you told me that you wouldn't associate with me when I got one. Hmmm...now who is the kettle and who is the pot?

I bought one with my Christmas money to go with the razr that I got for Christmas. I love my earpiece thing. It's amazing how good the sound quality is. AND! It's fun to wear in the car so it looks like you're talking on the phone instead of singing. Although, be really careful about that because if you go to adjust it on your ear, you could accidently push the button and it will redial the last number you called and then that person will get to hear you singing in the car.

Fab, if you wear one in each ear, you're gay and if you wear one just in one ear you're not. Is that the rule?

OH, I really really hate those people, please don't be those people...but if you must, then, I suppose I'll make an exception and not hate you.

I was in CVS and there was a guy in front of me with one of those ear pieces talking. He really seemed to think he was important. When he got his subscription, he said his last name was "Santorum."

"Hmm," I thought, "could it be Rick Santorum, the US Senator?"

He flashed his wallet and laid it out on the counter for all to see his US Senate badge.

Yes, it was indeed the senator. Now I happen to agree with his politics, but he definitely wanted the entire CVS to know how important he was, lol.

Beady--Thanks for not holding it against me!

Karl--Why, are you taller than I am?

Bluepaintred--Sorry about that :)

Attila--I am looking into it LOL

Heather--Sounds like that may have happened to someone, Mmmm? :)

Marty--Well, if wearing it means I have to sleep with a guy, I can do that!

Fantastagirl--Whew! Thank you!

ABB--I hope I never become as self important as he is :)

No, Fab! You've been taken by the Dark Side. *sigh*

But why is it that I actually felt like I had a need for one of those things? Yet, I refuse to buy one. I just can't be one of those people unlike some people.

It just gives people more reasons to talk more and annoy more people.

Don't be that guy.

Blogger Angie said...

Ugh...HATE those things. ALMOST as much as I hate cell phones in general. I refuse to own one. Now, that doesn't mean my husband and daughter don't have one each, but on principle, I refuse.

But, who am I to deprive a total blog stranger (of sorts, 'cause let's face it, I see you around the blog world ALL THE TIME!) of his hearts desire.

:)

"Sounds like that may have happened to someone, Mmmm? :)"

Uh, twice. During the same car ride to the same person.

Just make sure Mrs. Fab know when you are talking to her and when you are on the phone. I hate it when people on on those and you think they are talking to you, but really they are on the phone and then you look like the biggest idiot!!

I made my sister get one. I love mine, even though I was also one who mocked the earpiece wearers. But you can call people buy saying call....
it's awesome and so easy and if you have long hair and it covers the earpierce, you look insane - so bonus
