i was reminded of that event today, after i was looking at the Scrabble game that i'm playing w/ my mom. (She's severely kicking my ass.) Anyhow, Yoyo turned to me and asked, "Why can't yr mom play w/ other people?"
"So why do you have to play with her too?"
"Cause she's my mom. Obviously she wants to play Scrabble with her son!"
Thoughts on tech usage: i refrained from getting a cell phone as long as i could, but my school forced me to buy one in 2007. After i got it, it dug its heels into my pocket and life.
i don't have a smartphone, but know that after i get one... there'll be no going back. So i relish these last days of living without a freaking computer in my pocket. But, you ask, isn't an itouch the same as a computer? Well, it's that shifty purgatory between smartphone or not. It's not connected to the internet, usually. Here's my usage:
1) Learning Chinese apps and dictionary: slick flash cards have helped me a TON.
2) Listening to Chinese lessons when running/riding to work.
3) Scrabble with mom and Scramble with only ONE friend. But these are often daily activities now.
4) i use the sound recorder to interview people sometimes. Pretty darn handy.
i spend enough time on the computer and surfing the interwebs that i oughtn't waste more time doing so away from my desk!
