Where Exactly IS the iCloud?

Oh Jesus. Well, it's really been a swell day but right now I'm having a bit of agita (as Elizabeth would say) and am feeling agitato as Kinky Friedman would say and it's all due to the damn technology which rules our worlds.
So we got our new iPhones, as I said, and because we, being the Elderly, Jr.'s, had to go to Verizon to get all that shit squared away from one phone to another. Right? And to my vast delight, the woman who helped us was the same woman that I wrote about months ago whom I told, to her face, that she was a perfect example of a beautiful human being.
Which she is.
So anyway, I thought my phone was all iCloud-transferred and shit that I don't begin to understand although I do know that I can't take naked pictures of myself or my lover and not expect to see them on TMZ at some point, and yeah, I'm clear on that. But it seems that maybe it's not quite? All downloaded? And I took a picture of Ms. Brittany, the perfect example of a beautiful human being, but now it won't send to me and look- there's a lot of stuff about this new phone that I'm really not sure about.
I have a feeling that I may have to go visit Ms. Brittany again tomorrow and she's going to think I'm stalking her which is very sad and not at all true although if I were going to stalk a human being, why not a perfect example of a beautiful one? And if she doesn't think I'm stalking her she's just going to think I'm an idiot and that's even worse although painfully true.
And so forth.
Like I said this morning, First World Problems, for sure.

In some ways, however, I do feel that it's been a completely successful day in that Jessie texted me and asked if I had her birth certificate which she needs to get a Florida driver's license. I was able to put my hands on it within minutes and have taken it to her. So that's good. She Vergil have done a ton of work and unpacked hundreds of boxes and I'm very proud of them and their house is really starting to look like a home. And also, my beans should be ready by supper time.

Well. You can't ask for much more than that.

Life continues apace and I'm going to go make squash croquettes. Isn't it funny that croquettes and coquettes are such similar words? Have I spelled those right? Can you imagine a salmon coquette? Would she be winking at you? Would you be able to see her decolletage? I can imagine that but I can't really picture a squash coquette and you wouldn't want to put ketchup on any kind of coquette unless you had proclivities in that direction and if you do, don't tell me about it.

Thank you.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Brittany sounds like a technology coquette.

  2. I wish I could be witty like Denise but that perfect line is already taken so let me just say i don't really get the cloud either and i don't think anybody really has any privacy anymore so I'm glad my days of secrets are over. xo

  3. I have no idea what that cloud is all about. I'm not sure whether I have things in the cloud or not. I do have a very, very old iPhone, though, and in a way that's comforting because it is completely undesirable to anyone else!

    Having said that, I hope you enjoy your new ones! I know I eventually NEED to get another phone so let us know how it goes once you get it figured out.

    And yes, I can see how Brittany would be a perfect example of a beautiful human being. I'm sure you made her day!

  4. we're going to get new phones so I hear. I still have my old flip phone that I have had for too many years. but, ya know, I like my little phone. They keep going on about how big the new iPhone is and all I can think is that how the hell can you carry it in your pocket? and I don't do the iCloud which I could with the iPad. I just...don't. well, who knows. maybe when I get my iPhone I will.

  5. No clue about the cloud other than that it exists and I don't know what it is. Whenever given the option to save something to the cloud I decline. Glad you have the no naked pictures thing down. I'm such a prude that I've been so confused that so many people have naked pics on their phones. I did not even realize that would occur!

  6. I always leave your blog with a smile on my face.

  7. Yep, the Cloud is good and my stuff is up there just floating around.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
