New cell phone! (and vague allusions to headspace)

Yay! I have switched to AT&T wireless from Sprint’s service (not great near the house, although it’s usually OK other places I spend time at -- oh, and my voicemail messages are often garbled), and to a really neat phone, a Nokia 6800, from my previous Samsung, which was dying a slow death. The new number will follow in a friends-only post; if you happen not to be on my friends list but would like the number, feel free to drop me a note (local part js; domain

The Nokia 6800 has an FM radio, which means I can listen to NPR while I wait for the bus or walk to the train station. And it has a full keyboard, but a standard mobile-phone form factor. It looks like a normal phone, with the number pad on the front under the screen. But it flips open, and on the inside it has a full keyboard in two parts (half on the inside of the front that flips up over the display, and half on the inside of the back part). The display rotates when you open it so you can use the keyboard horizontally. If that doesn't make sense, follow the link above, which has pictures.

I’m really happy with it so far.

In other news, there has been a lot of psychodrama in my life over the past couple of days, but for now it seems to have settled down to a simmer.
