So. iPhone. I gots me one. And I named her Bellatrix:
Telus started selling iPhones yesterday, but their system crashed so they couldn’t *actually* sell the damn things. Also, I had to throw a fit and threaten to jump ship to Rogers or Bell because Telus didn’t want to give me the promo price on the phone (i.e., they wanted me to pay $899 instead of $299 for the phone) because I was 25 days shy of being within 6 months of the end of my conference. As if. And the Telus “loyalty” rep was all, “It’s just 25 days you have to wait,” and I was all, “Yeah, it’s just 25 days, so you can waive it!” I may have even had to pull out the old “”Well, who does have the authority to do this? I want to talk to them.” As the old saying goes, the squeaky wheel gets the iPhone and so I walked out of the store with Bellatrix in my hot little hands this morning.
Now, you may be wondering why the name “Bellatrix.” I’ve been trying to come up with a good name for the last week or so, and my thought process kinda went like this: my old phone was named Hermione (from Harry Potter), and my iPod is Marla (from Fight Club, character played by Helena Bonham Carter). Put these two together and what you do you get: Bellatrix Lestrange! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have more iPhone apps to download!
