  1. Sorry I knot been ticking. Mummy KNOT been feeling bery chatty plus also sheeze tired a lot at da moment. BUTT weeze finking ob yoo all ebery day. I hab a dying rear and tummeh upset rite now butt MAYJUH cuddles wiff mummy ebery day is halping a bit Sheeze a priddy deesint cushin and comfy to sleep against. Muss be all dat padding I hadda geddup free times in da nite on Tootsday. I juss suddenly got up and stood on dat bed. Den jumped down and went straight to da back door. No time to eben grab won ob me toys on da way, as I usually do. I reely habbed to GO. Mummy lept out ob bed. Hmm... lept may gib da impresshin ob sumwon gracefully rising, so mebbe I shooda juss said rolled out ob bed (I yam on fiyah tooday!) and she let me out. Ob coorse she wuz like a da neggst day. Still wuz tooday frum all da fizzical feral pee and dental torchur she submitted herownself to yesserday. Wut a nutjob! I'll be back, Pippin
  2. Pippin will catch up in a bit, but I wanted to check in to answer Susan's question about the iPhone 11 Pro. @GeorgeofNE I just had to switch to it and as a (amateur) photographer I think it's kind of hyped, to be honest. Especially the claims about depth of field. The DoF is inaccurate and kinda messy imo. I use my iPhone for pictures constantly, and I would never trade my DSLR for an iPhone, not even the 11 Pro or Pro Max. And I LIKE iPhones. I'm kind of annoyed to be honest. Couldn't afford this new phone, but I kept cutting myself on my old one, didn't want to spend $150 to repair the display of an iPhone 6, and I couldn't lock it or really use it anymore. Finally, it stopped working altogether and I had no choice but to upgrade. I had planned to get a newer model but certainly not the newest. But the iPhone X has been discontinued and the iPhone 11 is too big for me to hold. I have small hands. Obv the iPhone 11 Pro Max was out of the question. The iPhone 11 Pro was literally the only phone small enough for me to hold and type without straining, and I hate how heavy it is compared to the iPhone 6 but there it is. I hate the idea of borrowing from Pippin's savings to pay for an absurdly expensive phone, but it was either that or no phone. I got Apple Care so that this phone can last me a good 5 years at least even if it breaks, hopefully longer, and I will slowly save up for it so I can replace the money I borrowed from Pippin. Just my 2 cents! It's a good phone, don't get me wrong. It's a very good phone, but I don't think I'd spend the extra money on the iPhone 11 Pro for the camera. I spent a LOT of time in the Apple Store talking to staff and testing both phones, and the camera on the iPhone 11 is excellent for the average user taking photos.
  3. Choklit?? Will hab to cotch up later. Mummy did KNOT leeb da pooter on fur me, she stoled it to take it to her werkjob (da cheek!) and so I yam using dis fingymajiggy callt an ifone butt it is crakked and I do KNOT hab fumms so it's hard. Time fur a Hope eberywon is habbing a gud day! Pippin
