Friday Confessional

Photobucket
 
I'm linking up with the one and only Mamarazzi for her Friday Confessional.


  • I think my body is in shock from not having anything fried this week.  It's just not used to this level of healthy-ness.  I confess that I wrote that last week, before I went and screwed it up.  I had good intentions.
  • I confess that I want to start a photo meme, but I don't think anyone would play along...and someone would probably tell me that I'm copying someone.  Plus, every good name I come up with for it has already been used.  Apparently, I'm not very original.
  • I confess that I HATE that we now have to add the area code to our phone calls.  I've had to reprogram every number in my phone...and I have to redial EVERY call I make!  SO. ANNOYING.  Do you have to do that where you live? 
  • I confess that I remember when all we had to dial was 5 digits to make a local call.  I sound OLD.
  • I confess that I can NOT believe that is all I have to confess.  Seems as though I've been on my best behavior. 
  • I'll try to correct that before next Friday.
Hope you all have a FABULOUS Friday!!

Yes, we have to dial the area code now too. I hate it!
I think you should totally go for the photo meme!
And yes, please try to be naughty this week so I can read some juicy confessions next Fri. ;)

You should totally just do the photo meme anyway...you will never know!! I wanted to start a meme...and did..... and no one does it..it's fabulous....yup I'm a loser....what have you got to lose??

shortmama said...

I remember when we only had to dial the last 4 digits of the phone number in our town!

If we are calling a number within the same area code as your phone then we dont have to dial the area code...if its not then you have to dial the area code

Mamarazzi said...

i has taken For-E-ver for my Happy List meme to take off..and you are WAY more popular than i am.

if i were a photog i would totally do your meme, cuz i super love you!

something deep fat fried sounds amazing right now.

you have to dial the area code for LOCAL calls?

weird.

Hold the phone... you had phone numbers with FIVE digits? Impossible.

Kelli said...

Yeah, I need more confessions from you this week. What time of photo meme? I wish I knew how to take good pictures. I just need to practice. We don't have to enter the area codes and I don't think there was ever a time we only had to enter 5 numbers. Interesting.

My parents live in Orlando and they have to do that when they dial too. I hate going to their house to do it only because I haven't had a land line since 2001! Happy Friday.

If you did a photo link-up, I'd try to play along. I'm not a great photog, so we'd have to see how it goes.

Have a great weekend!

stephanie said...

I'm from Houston we've been dialing the area code since I was in jr high {or thereabouts} it always throws me off to go somewhere and NOT have to dial the area code.

April said...

I love photography, so I think a photo meme would be tons of fun! Yes...we have to dial in the area code here and it is kind of a pain. Why can't things just be SIMPLE? Enjoy your weekend, Jenny!

Conni said...

where I love, 3 miles west is considered long distance, so we have to dial the area code. But with our cell phones, if I am in my own house, I have to dial the area code to phone my self, because the local tower, does not pick up my calls, but the ones in the next town does, go figure.

Thanks for sharing

We have to dial the area code here for local calls too, so annoying. I would totally play along with a photo meme, you should do it!

Brandy@YDK said...

dialing area codes is ridiculous. hate it! it is also that way for faxes which i always forget.

I would do your photo meme. do it anyway.

VandyJ said...

I remember dialing four, yes, four numbers in the small town I grew up in. I also remember how annoyed everyone was when the system upgraded and we had to start dialing seven numbers.
And if we are calling out of town here(and with 45 or more miles between most towns in our state, every call is out of town) then the call is long distance.

Amy said...

That would be so annoying to reprogram all those numbers!

I say do the photo meme...people can say anything is un-original and handfuls of other things. What's important is YOU!

Boobies said...

I think you should do the photo meme for sure!

Life with Kaishon said...

You know I will join your meme thing a ma jig!

brainella said...

Start the photo meme! Who cares what others think. :)

Rachel Murphy said...

I hate that I have to do the same with my phone! When I am in a hurry I totally forget and it makes me want to throw the phone! But I am working on that :) I think you should start the photo meme but I also think you should tell me what that is. lol

Hope you have a great weekend!

sarajo said...

Good on you for being good? Or should I say bad girl! LOL!

And what's a photo meme? I'm so clueless sometimes.

Connie said...

I have no idea if you have to dial the phone number. I just have the phone number programed in my phone and I push on the phone number and my iPhone dials it.

I haven't had a REAL phone in my house for 5 years.

Connie said...

Oh...and how are you doing on those stairs?

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Thankfully we don't have to do area codes (yet) here in Indiana! And I hope we never have to!!!

Re: black dagger brotherhood is my favorite paranormal romance! I'm so excited for when the next one comes out at the end if the month. :)

Fresh Mommy said...

What? You HAVE to dial area code? No, not here yet. And 5 digits? I don't remember that... but I also hated being on the phone when I was younger, actually I'm still not all that fond of it.

and hahaha, "I'll have to correct that." Gotta love it!

When I am home (Iowa City) we do not have to dial area codes to call local. When I go home (Des Moines- visit Mom) yes, we do have to dial the area code because the city has grown so much. Very weird when we are only 2 hours away.

Liz @ Sugarplum Creations said...

I've wanted to start a photo meme for a long time too! But haven't for your same reasons :(

We've had to use the area code to dial locally for a long time. I can't remember if it's been since Jeremy and I first got married or if it was when I was in high school, but it's been awhile. And it tripped me up for the longest time.

Becca said...

I would totally do a photo meme if you started it!!! I love you to pieces and would support anything you started. Except if your photos are better than mine....which they totally are.....crap....you're gonna show me up aren't ya?

Also, when we moves to DFW in the late 90s we were already using 10 digit dialing- they have 4 area codes (maybe 5 now) that they use. So now that I live in the AUS area, they are back to 7 and it is hard to get used to.

Oh well.

Ps had a great time in OK...even if I didn't have any soap..

A 5 digit phone number? I've never heard of that and I know I am older than you! I'd join in your little photo thingy, but if photo thingy becomes the official name, I totally want some credit...

Impulsive Addict said...

I LOVE fried food. I hardly ever eat it though. But I've been sucking at my diet this week.

I'll do a photo meme with you. DO IT. Don't be skeered.

I remember the 5 digit dialing too. Our phone number was super easy. 5-4853. They still have that number after 27 years. Ca-razy!

Liz said...

We have always had to dial the area code here on our iPhones. I can't remember how it was before them with the old flip phones. I don't think we had to on them.

I think a photo meme would be FUN!

Myya said...

Photo Meme... that sounds cool to me, I'll be in if you do it.
We have to dial the area code too... SUPER ANNOYING!

Xazmin said...

Ugh! We had to start dialing the area code, prolly about a year ago. It was SUPER annoying!

I have gotten used to it now.

What kind of photo meme? I'm pretty sure I would play!

MiMi said...

We have to dial the area code. It sucks. The only way I ever knew was when I got a new cell and had to REPROGRAM all the numbers I JUST programmed.
Cuz on the old phone I just hit one button and it went through. Whatever.
You need to confess about what happened to your toilet after you ate greasy food for the first time in a week. Cuz I KNOW how that goes. Uh huh...

Amy said...

I would do a photo meme! I have a photo blog, so I'd do it from that one, but I would play! Go ahead! :)
