So this morning, I forgot my phone at home. And even though I'm at a computer pretty much all day, without my phone, I feel, dare I say, isolated. I know. I felt ridiculous even typing that. How is it possible that I feel isolated without my phone when I have so many other media outlets? Regardless of how you could spin this, it's been kind of a lonely day.

I want to pick up the phone and steal away for a few minutes to talk to Josh, and I want to make the usual call to my mom on the way to the bus stop. But today my communication stops at the keyboard. I watch ABC news videos about women with too much plastic surgery all I want, but this lonely sensation will subside only when Josh picks me up from the bus stop and I go home to make a real dinner, which we'll eat to The Office or The X-Files (tonight, I'm rooting for The X-Files).

{Update: We spent our evening eating carrot/shallot pasta with a cookie pie for dessert while streaming Toy Story 3 on Netflix. Bliss.}

I always curse myself when I forget my phone.

I just made that cookie pie last week!

I know how you feel. When I lost my phone (twice) last year I always feel strangely isolated even though I don't really use my phone very much.

Oh yes! On those days, you just have to enjoy the silence! Sounds like you're not there yet.

But, the night sounded as if it redeemed the day.
