Waiting in line at Freedom Mobile to switch over another family member from Rogers. It’s almost the last day of the iPhone promo holiday they are running. Bit of a wait but not too bad. In the end was successful and now were all on Freedom Wireless. I was semi-reemed out at the Source a few days ago for switching to Freedom (Source is owned by Bell). I only had to show that my previous corporate plan on Rogers was still better than what they were offering at Bell, and I still left to get him to shush. I am so happy I don’t have to do any more bargaining or endless phone calls to retentions departments and president’s circles and all of that.
checking out the pixel xl 2 demo. Really like the front design of the phone and the dual front fire speakers . Do not like the gigantic 140 per month charge to have this phone. The reviews look really great, but that price is just ridiculous high- and its not much more than the 8 Plus I picked up either outright (its just that Freedom heavily discounted the iPhone compared to the Pixel). You will notice that I did not take a picture of the Sony XZ1- it seriously feels like a entry/midrange phone and has no real benefit over the Z3 series I have been using for ages. Really disappointed with Sony on how far they have gone down with the Xperia line. Its also crazy expensive on Freedom too.
So I went for a run on the work treadmill and I threw up- I’m clearly still sick and this treadmill did not help (gross out factor- I had to swallow it so I could finish the run- I was in the final burst stage….yuck). Everyone I have ever known and love has been hit by a bug this winter. Its crazy. I had to take like eight different medications to manage some stomach bug that has left me wary of how far away I am from the bathroom at all times. I noticed that this winter, despite going hard on my sprints and stairs in the winter, I still do not feel as trim as I do in the summer- it really might not be the type of exercise I am doing at all then, as I previously thought. Still feel flabby this winter.
Its a warm winter start to the year and its pretty quiet. Lots of last minute cancellations (including my own when I had to call in sick from my stomach bug). I really can’t wait till this is all green again.
We had a really nice Boxing Day family dinner at Famoso- H pretended these little globs of dough were the shark family from the ridiculously exploited Baby Shark song on YouTube. Famoso was awesome for dinner- they gave some pizza dough for kids to play with so the kids don’t go crazy waiting for food. The food was good too, and service great.
