This is the keypad on my cellphone. Every now and then I'm reminded of how dependent upon it I am. Its battery died the other day when I was away from my apartment and didn't have a charger. Not only was it harder to connect with the outside world (at least when I didn't have my laptop or at least with some people who don't ever check their email) but I had a harder time telling what time it was. I never wear a watch any more; I just pull out my cell phone whenever I need to know what time it is. Fortunately, though, it's now charging so I won't have to be cut off and lost any more.
I am a teacher, grad student, writer, voracious reader, photographer, singer, feminist, and thriftstore fashionista. In no particular order.
I am Squirlaraptor. This name was originally created for my kitty to reflect her squirrel-like fur and her raptor attack skills and has recently been adopted by me to reflect my own curious nature and tendency to hoard as well as my (sometime) fierceness and my love of the hunt (at least, in terms of shopping and research--not so much in terms of killing and maiming, vegetarian that I am).
