I had to reset my phone because a stranger sent me porn and with it came a virus. Yes, someone gave my phone an STD…

I once caused a three-day printer jam because I didn’t notice there was a Post It on top of the paper I put in the tray.


“Hello, Virgin Mobile device replacement?”

A few years ago in a friend’s backyard, I got pushed into a pool fully-dressed and phone-in-pocket. I jumped up in a fury, hoisted myself over the pool ledge, and immediately removed my phone. I climbed out of the pool while shouting death-threats at the perpetrator and ran inside to look for something, anything to dry out my phone. My first thought was rice. And lo and behold, there in the bottom of the pantry was a box of it! I dumped some into a bowl, took apart my water-logged phone, put the pieces into the rice, prayed, and left it overnight. The next morning, I discovered that something strange had happened to this bowl of rice. It had become orange and clumpy… Retrieving the box of rice, I discovered that it was no ordinary rice, but cheesy rice. The cheese powder had conglomerated around, over, and in my phone. Needless to say, it did not turn back on. I called my cell phone provider that day, and when I explained that I needed a replacement due to water damage, the Virgin Mobile representative asked for specific detail as to the damage to the phone. “How do the parts now appear ma’am?” “Um, well, cheesy.”


The Egg Beater

Once, whilst in the Navy I had to find a satellite in space some 20,000 miles over my head. With ground telemetry systems down following a power failure I had to steer our ground dush manually. The controls, which moved the ground dish along X, Y, and Z axes resembled the crank on an old fashioned mechanical egg beater. Though I didn’t find the geosynchronous satellite I was able to marvel, uninterrupted, at the Southern Cross and other Southern Hemisphere constellations til sunrise when the power came back up.

Imagine trying to find a geosynchronous satellite 20,000 miles over your head wit control no more fine than an egg beater crank. #oldpa


How Many Emails?????

Hello, my name is Cris, and I am an ehoarder.

Most problematic is my email hoarding.

Google stopped counting somewhere around 40,000 and simply says “many” now.

Any day now I suspect that the digital weight of all of these emails compounded by those of all the other ehoarders will bring the Web to a grinding halt. Sort of like the old threat that saved National Geographics would sink the Northern Hemisphere.

Google will retaliate by publicly sharing all ehoarders’ nude photos on social media.

That would be evil.

I have a working knowledge of nuclear physics. I know why and can explain why the sky is blue. I can create circuitry to accomplish a number of tasks. I can program in Java. Yet I still sometimes type Google into the Google search bar in my browser so that I can go to Google…Redundancy? Check!


My embarrassing YouTube obsession

My embarrassing tech confession is that I’m obsessed with YouTubers. British YouTubers, to be specific. Their videos are horrible, have zero intellectual content, they just video tape their daily lives, and I love it. It’s such a nice time to relax and just watch someone else’s life for like 5 minutes. I have 54 YouTube subscriptions (on a separate channel than the one in my About Me). It even got to the point where I was using their slogans. Yep.


Cellphone Confession

1. I have horrible luck with my cellphones, they jump out of my hands and break on a regular basis and I generally have to replace them. If they aren’t breaking they just do not want to work right. 2. I always check my phone first and last thing of the day, yet i do not know how to use half of the awesome features available even though my brother does. 3. I refuse to get an apple phone only because I am comfortable with my droid so much and i finally know how to use it.

Tech Confession

I am known to break my phones and lose them! I have broken about 6 phones, including my iPhone i shattered the screen last year. So then I bought a brand new iPhone 5c.. and got it stolen a month later.
Since I am not at all technologically savvy I did not turn on the “find my iPhone app” so I waited a month and the phone was always off until exactly 3 weeks after it gotten stolen. In the meantime, I bought a burner phone, I never thought I’d miss my smartphone so badly. Now I had to pay full price for a new phone, but I have never been so happy to have my iPhone back.. I thought it was funny how connected to my phone, when I never thought I was!

My funniest, and probably a sad confession is that I have shattered the screen on 3 of my cell phones this year alone. Just in 2014 I have had to get the screen replaced on my phone. And I don’t learn from it. I get the new screen and I tell myself that I need to keep it in a protective case like an Otterbox. Then I find this really cute case that I really want. All it takes that one drop that you just know broke your phone. The cycle starts over from there.

Y U NO SMARTPHONE

I guess my techfession would be the fact I have no owned a cell phone or smartphone outside a burner I use on occasion when I travel. My partner and I have had three kids and lived in NYC and Freddy and have never had a ,mobile device besides a laptop—if that even qualifies. It was mainly for lack of money throughout grad school, but recently has become a defining personal characteristic. People can;t fathom I don;t have one, and I find that equally as unfathomable. I amy get one at some point, I have flirted with it recently, but for now I find it’s the new black not to have a smartphone. I am free, at least when I am not teaching #ds106 #4life :)

I’m fairly positive that if I did not have an iPhone, I would be unable to get from point A to point B behind the wheel of a car. I’m severely directionally challenged. I use the Google Maps app (embarrassingly frequently) to tell me where to go. Yes, I’ve named the automated voice as Girdi. And yes, I’ve been known to yell, “Dammit Girdi!!!!” after she leads me into traffic.

I used to think that I would never use an Ipad, that I would never need one. Now, it is my lifeline. I even wipe it with antibacterial wipes after the kids touch it. I know where it is at all times and have no clue where my purse even is… I think I need help. I’ll just blog or tweet on my Ipad for help…. Suri? Are you there?


Well, I must tell someone.
