I love my iPhone. When I was in Ithaca it seemed that I was one of the few people I knew who had one. Here it seems everyone and their kids have them. At this point I am still using an (ancient) iPhone 4. It has a bit of difficulty connecting to wifi at this point, and if you've see it you've marveled that it still works at all with all of the broken glass. Eventually I'll grab an iPhone 5, but figured I should probably have a job first.
It's hard to believe how much work it is to get ready for some time off. Elizabeth & I spent most of last night finding rental cars online, looking for hotels or houses to rent for the week or so we'll be in the southern part of Ireland, and then we fall into bed about 2 hours later than we should have.
