Monsters Of Summer

“Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear.” ― Edgar Allan Poe


This coming Monday, my iPhone needs to be shipped back for battery replacement - if you have an iPhone 6s, you probably know exactly what I'm talking about. Anyway, even though they told me it could take up to two weeks, I know it will probably be more like two days but I'm determined to exist without it or a temporary replacement. I'm almost looking forward to it. I'll miss the music part of it when I'm out for sure but will I miss the maps/SatNav when I make a road trip next weekend? Will I miss having a camera on me all the time? I'm sure I made it through most of my life without one. Will I miss the ease of which I can check my email on a whim? Maybe, but I shouldn't...

There's a lot of questions that could be asked of myself here but I'm going to quickly figure out a new status quo and when the phone comes back, keep as much of that status quo going as time moves along. I don't like being a slave to anything but the slavery a phone brings you is stealthy in the extreme.

We will see...


In other findings  at the end the week here, I have a feeling this could be my movie of the summer...

Or maybe this:


And now, I must write. My work is done for the week, I have an empty weekend ahead of me and want to get rolling. By the time I hand my phone to a courier, things need to be off the desk again and onto somebody else's. Game on.
