I just renewed my two-year mobile phone contract a little early (was due at the beginning of the new year but the offer already came in now, so I went with it) and with that comes a new phone. I didn’t really need a new phone for myself but as my father-in-law’s phone could use replacement, I decided to order a newer one after all so that my current one can go to him.
That also means a new cover (why don’t they ever make phones in standard sizes?) was needed. About time too as the old cover was fading and I had to keep it all together with staples (you can see the staples alongside John Proctor on the right edge in the following image).
New phone arrived yesterday and is installed, my new cover arrived today (with the same The Crucible painting by my mother that I’ve had for 6 or so years now and never grows old) and I’m happy as a clam that it looks so good…
The new phone also has some filters on the camera. I’ve never used filters before but decided to try them now for the first time…
I look weird, myself and yet not myself, although I’ve got to say I’m quite partial to the following autumn beard and sunglasses look. I was instantly reminded of this Richard Armitage selfie. See the similarities?
Shape of glasses and beard (without the leaves) are quite the same. I could be his bearded dwarf sister!
(Modified to add this video about dwarf women…)
Anyway, fun to have a new phone although I’m not sure I’ll ever use those filters again. Most of all I’m just happy it works pretty much exactly the same as the old one (I had a Samsung and stayed with it), that it still has Richard and Anna Madeley in The Crucible on the cover and that my Angry Birds 2 advanced score is still intact.
