Friday night I decided to stay in and work on the play (The Loitering Hole). I'd just like to say that it's the second consecutive Friday doing this, and all the bars in Chicago have been contacting me wondering if I'm all right. This really shows my dedication, I think.

Anyway, one of my roommates comes home and is all excited about his new iphone. He shows me a couple features, a moustache maker, a harmonica, etc., and sits down in a chair two feet past the door. I went back to writing for two hours and came back into the kitchen to find him in that very chair still playing with it. This time he showed me a map feature that can zoom in with the satellites to find exactly where you are. It really says something about me that the first thing out of my mouth was, "Oh, that's great because if you have a blacked out drunk, road show, one-night-stand you could find out exactly where you are the next day.

Technology is an amazing thing.

Remember when we used phones to talk to other people? Me neither.

I am so addicted to my iPhone. I'm actually leaving this comment from my iPhone right now...

my roomie's boyfriend has an iphone widget that makes the screen glow a color of your choice and when you wave it around it makes light saber noises.
really useful.

Does the moustache maker give moustache rides? Then the iphone would be truly useful.

Pistol: I want a rotary cell phone.

Donk: I'm scared of them.

Jov: I want one of those! I'd reenact scenes from Star Wars. That would SO get me laid.

Nut: It does not, at least not that I know of. It's just something you put up to your face so it looks like you have a mustache.

I need a phone that will find me when I'm lost. But I don't think I need a harmonica feature.

Don't think of the iPhone as a way to touch a screen. Think of it as a way to touch each other.

^ Okay that was really me--but Don Draper is very quotable sometimes, gosh darn it!!

Seq: Hey, you never know when you might. Maybe you need to make a little extra cash in the Subway as a street performer, and, voila!

Draper and Zen: Don Draper? I like it . . .
