So apparently my phone needs a software upgrade. This was made clear to me after a call I made to Telus concerning the half-second aborted erroneous call that was listed in my recent calls as lasting 220 (daytime) minutes. It sounds like fun, though I'd better back up my contacts first.
The work party earlier tonight was great. Everyone was so happy to see me that I was much more overjoyed than I thought I would be, and I thought it would be fantastic to begin with.
