We're Not In Kansas Anymore

Bhuler, anyone…

Inspired by my good friend Dennis Blank

with 3 comments

I happen to have been lucky enough to work with Dennis Blank.  Dennis started his blog, the Daily Blank, and it inspired me.  I will never be close to the profundity of his musings, but if nothing else this will give me a creative outlet other than facebook status updates.  The disadvantage is that I won’t be limited by character count (in the alphanumeric sense anyway) so this might get a little less pithy than it should. 

No need to explain the title – pretty clear we all are living that dream.  

People always say: write what you know best.  In order: crazy family members, commuting, being shorter than most people, knee pain, marketing, TV in the 70’s, networking, raising boys, obscure trivia, buying new gadgets, using the NY subway system.   Topics will generally be along those lines.

We’ll start with gadgets – since most people have some sort of gadget.   So I bought the droid, on day 12 of ownership.  Still undecided.   The email app for non gmail is not so friendly.  Can’t sort, can’t store on web (I use AOL).  And have to look for wireless networks when in range.  On the plus side: great phone interface, fun to use touch screen, three different kind of keyboards.  And the highlight (shows how easily distracted I am) is that I found the ringtone used at the end of Slumdog (when Jamal calls Latika for the 10,000,000 rubies) and use that as mine.  So cool. 

Will cool outweigh practical?  Two days to decide (14 day return policy).

  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging Hose. I’ve had a lot of fun with it and hope you do as well. I don’t have droid phone so I can’t really comment on the post, but I’ll check in for what’s next.

  2. So… what was the final verdict after 14-days?
