My new phone and Ron Jeremy

Two notable events occurred yesterday. The first is that I got a new cell phone- the Razr, because I'm trendy like that. I've heard that they lose their charge very quickly, so I'll post an update on that later on in case anyone is interested in getting one.

The second is the discovery that one of my professors was friends with Ron Jeremy. Yes, that Ron Jeremy. Our department has a softball team, and after our game we went out for drinks. I don't remember exactly how it came up, but one of the faculty members told us that he and Ron Jeremy grew up in the same neighborhood in NYC. They once got into a pencil fight during Hebrew school (dirty!) and Ron Jeremy stabbed him, and he still has a bit of pencil lead embedded in his arm from the incident. Apparently they made amends, because Ron Jeremy attended his bar mitzvah. And no, they didn't know anything about Ron's..ahem...talents until after high school.

I got a Razr a few months ago (ooh, shiny!) and while I've been pleased thusfar with the battery life (although I have no social life, hence no calls, so YMMV) outside of picture taking (it's a big drain), my reception is crap, although I think I live smack in the middle of a dead spot, so sucks to be me.

And yes, I was going for the comma/parenthetical record on that comment. ;)

Haven't had any problems with the Razr battery life, but the volume cuts out on me once in a while which is pretty annoying. I like the phone though.

I think it says something about a blog audience when the first 2 comments on a cellphone/porn star post are about the cellphone.

I asked the sales clerk about the battery life, and he looked up my account and said that I don't use my phone that much so it shouldn't be a problem for me. I'm sure he didn't mean anything by it, but I couldn't help but think that he was insinutating that I was a loser because no one calls me. Smarmy little bastard.

For the record, when I saw that there were two comments, I assumed that they would be about the Ron Jeremy thing. I don't know what that says about ME.
