Boyfriend Clearly Doesn't Want Me to Blog Anymore...


Why is that, you ask?


If you may recall, some bullshit happened awhile ago with the iphones and upgrades and whatnot.



 I couldn’t figure out how to get an iphone without spending an OBSCENE amount of money. And since I wasn’t willing to cut any of the important things out of my budget (cable, alcohol), getting an iphone seemed like a dream.


But then. Boyfriend made a magical thing happen:


And on Friday, it came!!!!!


 It’s so pretty, you guys.

Here, let me explain:


Anyway, so this pretty much happened as soon as I got it.




And everytime I started to blog, it distracted me with its shiny newness.


See, it’s bad. So in conclusion, if my blog suffers, it’s totally and completely Boyfriend’s fault.

Thank you, Boyfriend!

I'm only about four years behind on that one...

    1. Wait, HOW CAN YOU GET VIRTUAL CATS ON IT!?!? This is very important.

    2. OOoo, there's virtual frogs, too (the app is called 'Pocket Frogs'). You can breed them and feed them and take them to this pond and make them jump on lily pads and shit. And they're cute and colorful and FROGS.

  3. My wife just got a new iPhone this weekend too, and her reaction has been much the same. I'll look forward to speaking with her again in 2 weeks after its newness has worn off and she realizes I exist again.

  4. iPhones are for posers. REAL smartphone enthusiasts wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

    *takes two cups connected with string and tapes a calculator to it* See?

  5. Very cool! I have an older 3G and am thinking I might need a 5...new bells and whistles!

  6. "Siri, what happened to Gia's blog?"
    Bloop bloop
    "Gia is MINE now, bitch, step off!"
    "Damn, Siri, you're surly."
    "Siri will stab you, mofo. Don't test!"

  7. It will lose it's appeal soon enough. And then you'll be back. Oh yes, you will indeed return to us, my pretty. MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Um, I mean, "Yay, new toy! Fun times." ;)

  8. Welcome to the world if absolute consumerism! It's sad I know what almost all of those apps were in your drawing. I luuuurve my iPhone!

    ReplyDelete
  9. There is a Blogger app for iPhone :) DON'T STOP BLOGGING! And I am not ashamed to say I'm a proponent of Droid, but iPhones are cute.

  10. I have not and will not drink the iKool Aide. However, I am crack addicted to my SG3 so I feel ya.

    I get super fixated on my new techy toys. I upgrade my phone every year and a half or so. It's a sickness.

  11. I was hoping that it would distract her enough to allow me to escape. No luck so far...and the window of opportunity is closing. Sigh.

  12. I'm going through the same thing with my iPad. I got it so I didn't have to sit over at the computer; I could go sit w/ my gf in the living room.

    Unfortunately, I learned that it doesn't count unless I'm only paying attention to HER.

  13. I kinda had a momentary, partially crippling panic attack from reading the title of this post. That was just plain cruel.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I just got one, too! Blogging is definitely suffering. Angry Birds are my bitch now.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yay for you!!! I am a Iphone user but am using the 4S until my upgrade kicks in, in March. Even with the 4S it is so distracting. Too many cool things to do to waste time. I think that could be said of any smartphone BUT when you/me/anyone gets a NEW smartphone...it's an adventure.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yay! You will love it and wonder what you'd been doing without one for so long. Do you and Boyfriend celebrate anniversaries? If so, there'sa 7" iPad with your name on it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You are not allowed to stop blogging. If you don't blog, then I steal oooooo pretty phone.

    Love,
    Janie

  18. I too pretty much only talk to family and boyfriend(my bf, not yours-I hope!!). So instead of an upgrade, I bought a tablet. Sooo much bigger, and I can read you anywhere. Anyway, now I'm addicted to my apps(angry birds is like crack!!). I'm ashamed to admit I have 3 kittycat apps.

  19. I like to steal my boyfriend's iphone and poke at the pretty colored lights. I hate carrying expensive things around though so I haven't bit the bullet and gotten my own yet :(

  20. Say goodbye to your free time and helloooo to hours of unanswered iphone blackouts. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That was pretty much my reaction when I got my first actual smart phone. Before I got it, I was all, "Pssh I don't need all those apps." Now, I am pretty sure I'd have an actual period of withdrawals if I had to say goodbye.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I really love that you sang about it in your dreams. Apple should pay you to do commercials.

    ReplyDelete
  23. NO!!! You cannot become too distracted because my husband is your blog's newest fan, and I need to occupy him! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. YAY!!! That is an awesome gift! I'll forgive you for not blogging and playing with your phone instead.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You should be able to blog right from your phone!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Any one of your posts that include a koala hug on your boyfriend make my day.

    Happy for you and your iPhone! Welcome to the club!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Get the blogger app for iphone, and you can write your blogs straight from there! This is completely amazing, especially the picture of hero boyfriend looking just like superman.

    1. Is the iPhone blogger app any different from Android? I've never been satisfied by any of the Blogger mobile apps myself. :(

  28. I hope your superhero was super-ly rewarded for this one!

    And my blog was sadly neglected for a while after I got my Kindle. Because oooh, the pretty!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. How did we ever get by without iPhones? Instead of B.C. and A.D., it should be BiP and AiP. Just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  30. And this is precisely why I don't have an iphone. That, and I'm cheap.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Angry Birds? Pshaw, you're gotta try Bad Piggies!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love-hate my iphone. 2 weeks new and I still am all, huh, how do I put it on vibrate? There's an app for that? I can do what? Luckily I teach high school so they help me out. But then I become the un-cool old fashioned elderly lady that's all, why isn't there a cord? What if I like pears why isn't it a pear phone? Do my texts go to everyone I know, cause Ethel needs to know we're doing bingo Tuesday but if Martha finds out.....
    and then I am all, yay my phone can totally email this and update my blog and be used as a flash light. Go iphone you rock!

  33. never let him go Gia! He is #1 boyfriend in the woooooorld!!!

  34. I heart my iPhone. I just upgraded to the 5 a few weeks back and I love it so. It's never not with me. Some have called me obsessed.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I never leave this place without a big fat smile. Congrats on the phone and welcome to the world of iPhone addicts.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am addicted to my smart phone and my tablet. And wow, Boyfriend is a generous guy!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was late to the iPhone, too. Never did figure Angry Birds out. Go to zazzle.com and make an iPhone cover with boyfriend's face on it! Or, Allie's. Whatever. Do it, it's cool. I love mine. It's not of Gia's boyfriend, weirdos! It's of my kid, sheesh.

  38. I'm late to the iPhone. And by late, I mean I still don't have one. But I'm pretty sure that is a good thing, because I probably wouldn't be able to put it down.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Interesting. Techy stuff (yes, this counts) doesn't interest me, so reading this and the comment thread above is like observing some kind of strange new jungle tribe. I'm fascinated.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yay, you! Your boyfriend is a keeper! And this post is fabulous as always! I wonder what my husband willing to get me to slow down my blogging obsession?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am so happy for you (and also jealous you new toy having wench). I have decided, though, that I do will encompass wench-like characteristics when I upgrade in December. Merry fucking Christmas to me.

    Get Scramble With Friends. IT KILLS MY BLOG ON THE REGULAR!
