About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.

  1. I have always been know as a gadget girl. It all started with my palm pilot and now its totally morphed into EXACTLY what you are talking about. I can’t leave home without my Iphone. If something happened to it I would be totally lost. I’ve owned a Kindle since it first came out. Once I thought it died because the screen froze up, I didn’t know what I’d do without it. I mean really, how would I read books lol. My latest love affair is with the Ipad. I hope to get one for Christmas this year. And for my birthday, I’m asking for a 3G Kindle.

    1. It’s crazy how we get so addicted to fast and easy access. You take it away and we all start running around like chickens with our heads cut off

  2. I have the exact same problem that you do. I have the Evo and never go anywhere without it…or my charger to make sure that my battery doesn’t die and I am without my phone for any amount of time. I have my ipod (well, sometimes 2 since I just upgraded my VERY old ipod to a newer-smaller one and haven’t put most of my music on it yet). And, of course, my Kindle, which I just received for my birthday a few months ago. How I lived before this device I have no idea. I actually bought a bigger purse so that I could carry it with me everywhere (my boyfriend didn’t listen when I said I wanted the smaller Kindle and got me the Kindle DX. Am I complaining? Absolutely not.) I forgot it at home one day and felt lost the whole day since I couldn’t read at all. It was TRAGIC. So yeah, definitely feel you pain.

    1. I use my phone so much during the day it’s tapped out by 1pm. I have a charger at my desk and in my car (just in case) lol

      & I made sure David didn’t buy me a DX when they came out for that exact reason. Purse to Kindle ratio.

      Our priorities as Kindle owners are horribly skewed. Isn’t it great 🙂

  3. I was a gadget girl for a long time.

    I no longer have an ipod or cell cause food trumps gadgets.

    I also broke my K2 back in June and it took about 3 weeks before I worked things out with Amazon to get the replacement. That was sheer heck.

    I have decided that if I have to sell everything I own, the Kindle will be the last to go.

    Living without the phone and ipod hasn’t been fun, but I’m dealing.

    No Kindle? Where’s the razor? 😀


    PS…don’t even need sound to laugh at your video, Misters..you’re too funny. I did notice that there wasn’t a single ‘ya’ll’ in this one. I guess I teased too much about that 😀


  4. I am so with you! On top of being a technology teacher and being on computers all day I spend a good chunk of time outside of work researching books to buy for my Kindle, while streaming movies on my ROKU, texting updating blogs and tweeting away :)Was so pleased to find your blog….

    1. Thanks Anna!!

      Ok, I think your addiction is slightly worse than mine. Oh, hell… Who am I kidding? Netflix for my iPhone put me over the edge.

  5. I am 100% with you on this! I have known for a long time that I have been addicted to my technology. Except I have worked hard to integrate all of them into each other, with all my data securely backed up on the cloud. If my phone (iPhone 3g) was to die I would be upset because I use it for my temporary kindle, until I get mine (Hoping this Christmas), on the go. Now that I think of it I don’t really use my phone for calling or texting that much, because the bulk of my time I’m on a computer and I can text from the computer as well as make phone calls. If my netbook was to die I would be highly upset and probably not able to function because, sadly, I am addicted to not only technology but a video game (not going to go into what game). Lets just say I have been reading an amazing book called World of Warcraft: The Shattering. So… Yeah… I think I should be going to tech anonymous meetings… xD
