I don’t know about you, but when I’m hungry I need to eat asap — or else someone’s going to lose an eye (or worse.) My husband will testify to that: he’s been on the receiving end of that disaster in progress. Add that fact and the road trips that we enjoy together, and you’ll have the makings for a disaster of epic proportions, especially if I’m both tired and hungry. But then I discovered the Let’s Eat! app.
That’s what’s cool about the Let’s Eat! app that I just downloaded onto my (Android, thank you very much) phone. Instead of having to wander through reader reviews and 10,000 menu options to find something nearby, I just have to let the app find my location and then everything within 1km, or around .62 miles, pops up. With the help of Google maps, it even gives me directions on how to get to the restaurant, diner or gas station of my choosing. Yes, I’m not above eating a gas station hot dog. Most of them are quite tasty. But, I digress…
The graphics on the app are simple and straightforward. You don’t need any flashing or blinking icons, or any annoying restaurant reviews when all that you want to do is find something to eat before your wife starts beating on you. (Right, Josh?)
You can find the Let’s Eat! app on the Android Market here, or search from your cell phone. For 99 cents, how can you go wrong?
I had a dream last night that I owned an iPhone. Considering the fact that I’m an avowed PC user, it was strange. Either I brought it on by admiring these super cool Star Trek iPhone cases on the Think Geek website, or I watched the Star Wars trilogies too many times over the weekend and my subconscious is telling me to turn to The Dark Side.
Either way, it was weird.
And just for the record, I want a Motorola Droid RAZR, not an iPhone. Yikes.
Everyone keeps asking me what I want for Christmas, and I keep saying, “I don’t know.” So I sat down and thought about it – what DO I want for Christmas? That’s reasonable, not impossible…
Well, I wouldn’t mind finding a Nintendo Wii under my non-Christmas tree. (After all, Christmas trees + cats don’t mix.) I also wouldn’t argue with someone who wanted to buy me an ebook reader of some sort. I still haven’t decided between Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes & Noble’s Nook, or Border’s Kobo, though.
And that’s all I can think of. I really don’t need anything, besides new tires for my car, but that fits into the Crazy Impossible Category since I’d also need new struts and tie rod ends to go with those tires.
A gym membership of some sort would be helpful. I wonder if you can buy a package of “Ambition” to go with that to help get me into the gym to use said membership?
*Sigh* I guess I’m just going to ask for bookstore gift cards like last year.
I can’t stop playing with my new phone. So far, I’ve downloaded close to 30 different apps, some of them being useful (news, weather, email) and some just good, plain fun - games!
Here are my top five games, thus far, in no particular order:
1) Fruit Ninja. I can’t stop playing it! Who knew that Ninja’s hate fruit? LOL
2) Bubble Blast 2. Another one that I can’t stop playing. The sound effects are cool and the puzzles actually require a bit of skill and luck.
3) Angry Birds. I love it. The pigs stole the birds’ eggs, so you have to slingshot the birds to attack the pigs. Weird, but cool.
4) Curling. I set it up on two-player and Josh and I challenge each other. He gets mad when I win.
5) Paper Toss. It’s hard and I get annoyed at it, but I’ll beat it eventually!
Yesterday I received my Verizon Wireless rebate from my new cell phone purchase. Today I managed to spend all but $15 of it on a new camera. Oops. I didn’t even hold onto that $100 for 24 hours.
I needed a new camera though. I have a tiny one that I carry in my purse that’s only 3.1 megapixels, and that was fine because my old cell phone took great pictures, so I didn’t need it all the time. My new phone takes so-so pictures, so…
After browsing various websites, I decided to buy a used Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15. It’s cute, small, and 12 megapixels. And only $79 plus shipping! Woo hoo!
My professional one will cost WAY more than that, when I finally get it, but that’s a story for another day.
