The mug, the picture frame and my phone

IMG_1986
It could be a title for an eclectic movie such as The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover. I had once suggested this movie to Doug and a friend long ago because Helen Mirren starred in it. The movie was so disgusting and vile, they forever banned me from picking out movies. But I digress. This photo is actually a contest entry for Mommy Community's Scavenger Hunt contest. Check out the cool stuffed dog prize.

Adam expertly took this picture of Dova and myself. My parents gave me this mug as a Christmas gift when I was in high school and is still my favorite. The picture frame was bought for Adam so he could have a family portrait in his room. Of course we've never updated the picture to include his sister. And you all know about my beloved iPhone...

Speaking of the iPhone, here's a quick update. I've been using the iPhone on my bike rides and it is working really well. I can use the side volume buttons to adjust the volume (they removed these buttons from the iPod Touch), and I also use the microphone clicker on the cord to pause. It's not very easy to select new tracks while riding, so I usually find an hour long podcast to listen to (usually WNYC Radio Lab, This American Life or Story Salon). Plus I have the added bonus of having my cell phone with me in case I get a flat or have an accident, etc. My ancient 27x1-1/2 tubes have been hard to find in regular stores so I've gone without a spare for the last season (shame on me!). We're coming close to foliage season here and I'm looking forward to biking through the leaves.
