I am so crabbit I refuse to have a phone. I get crabbit enough when I'm talking, its worse when I am listening to other people Mad Besides if I'm out its because I have stuff to do and I'm busy, so why would I want to take a phone with me just to get interrupted all the time by calls and annoying texts? Its a modern madness. Mad If you cant get hold of me its because Im too busy to bloody well speak to you or read your text. Live with it. Evil or Very Mad

I'm with Petty and Figgy.

No fone.

Never liked 'em. Nor the spelling. I have one in the house, yes, but 'you' better call for a reeellly good reason or I don't pick up. Acceptable reasons include... well I can't think of any right now.

I won't even talk about grey things on the fone!

My taped message to callers is: Garn!

I have a Moto X, love the near-stock android feel of it. Smile Wish I could get a Nexus 5, but Verizon doesn't carry them.

At the moment this is all I remember about its origins.
_____

Upon a behorsing my mind turned to grey: 'it's not white', mused I, while munching some hay.

But a Rohir in white stood suddenly fey, and with colourful speech attempted to slay

that thought I was thinking; and to my dismay 'grey or white, white or grey' was all we could say!

(though the horse in my head said nothing but neigh)

It might have all started one morning in May... but the discourse continued a year and a day!

Although maybe the Rohir sees things differently. It's a grey area.

I think it was initially an argument between Elthir and Dave over whether Shadowfax was grey, silver, or white (maybe just grey or white, particularly where the distinction between those two should be drawn, and whether "grey" could mean "(something close to) white" in horse-related circumstances).  And there was a big search of Tolkien's writings for references to horses of these colors at some point.  It became a self-referential meme a long time ago, though.

Argument? Suspect
Petty and Mrs Figg have arguments. Elthir and I have spirited discussions. Nod

Well explained Eldo! Hi Dave (the Rohir)  Very Happy

Back to fones: full disclosure: I was 'forced' to take a cell phone when I travelled alone to Canada once (to Mount Royal). I don't speak Canadian so I didn't see the point... anyway I have no idea what happened to it.

That was the only time I held one, I swear! I don't think it was a smart-fone, but it did take pictures for those who knew how, or cared, to turn it on.

I didn't see any Mounties... but at one point I used Canadian money to buy food and was told that I had used fake money (I think there was a picture of a bird on it? Or something). Anyway I had no idea, but yet feared the law for a moment...

... yet then I realized my past behorsings would hold me in good stead with any red Rohirs, or at least their mounts.
