Who needs it?

THIS is a really good idea.  I think I’m going to do it (on my personal cell, anyway), and I think Mom shoulddefinitely do it.  Anyone who never listens to their voicemail (which is everyone*) should do it.  It’s not as rude as never listening and never calling anyone back because you never listened to the message.  So go, change your message, and come back.  Go on.  I’ll wait.

Welcome back!

I forget about this blog for months at a time, but that means I have lots of content to drool over when I remember.  Our house could look something like this if we threw out 75% of what we have.  And painted everything white.  And had better taste.  And more money.

*Exception: if you’re job-hunting, DON’T DO THIS.  But then, if you’re job-hunting, you don’t belong to this group.  You’re probably listening to your voicemail messages.


  1. While I agree with the VM thing in principle, mine is not a pain because my phone downloads and saves it, so when I see I have a missed call I just have to press play to listen to it. I guess blackberrys do one thing well.

    What I do Hate (yes, it gets a capital H) is when you can’t change the automatic voicemail message saying to leave a message after the beep. How long have we, as a society, been using these devices? Is someone going to come along and say “I don’t understand, why is it beeping at me?” NO! We all know the leave a message after the beep, so stop wasting 45 seconds of my time explaining it to me!

    Whew, I feel better.

    Glad you could get that off your chest. 🙂

    Pressing play to listen to it is the part I never bother to do. Who’s got that kind of time?
