Not eating anything ... bloodwork tomorrow in advance of someone stuffing a camera down my throat to see what's going on.

I love my V20, but my V20 hates me. Had to reboot it 4 times today, even after pulling the SD card ... think there's a problem with the internal storage. No warranty -- device is paid off so I took the T-Mobile insurance whatever thing off it.

So ... unless I want to screw around and reboot my phone several times a day, I suppose it's time to look for a new one. Again.

Remember, if you have an Amazon account in good standing there are several phones that you can get with their 5 month payment plan. No interest, no credit checks, heck I don't think it's even treated as a line of credit.

That's how I got my current S8+, and the LG G6 before it...

For instance:

LG G6+ 128GB (this is the version with the high quality DAC added):
https://www.amazon.com/LG-G6-Unlocke...=lg%2Bv30&th=1

Orchid Gray version of the Note 8+:
https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SM-N9...=note%2B8&th=1

And there are several others if you look around. The payment plan is 5 monthly payments - no interest, no fees, no nothing. I just now made the last payment on my s8+ this month! w00t!

oOoOoO I'll have to look at those then. Going to avoid the ones with the edge displays like the plague because that's why I have the LG V20 in the first place

Still don't understand the video though, not really.

edit: Other than BABYMETAL being the best kind of ridiculous, I mean.

Did anyone ever understand Babymetal though? And don't even start with Deadlift Lolita.

Also, it appears that the 128GB Essential is on there for $500.

Welp, no new phone this month. We have a French door fridge. Mario wanted to get to the top shelf, so he opened the doors and climbed on top of the freezer drawer. I walked in to the kitchen and asked him what he thought he was doing, which scared him, causing him to jump and break the freezer drawer handle, as well as the mounts.

So...$230. Yay.

Also, T-Mobile is rolling out LTE band 71, and none of the phones I looked at support it. The Galaxy S9 does, but I hate the curved display. Looks like I'm going to wait for the next wave of "flagship killer" phones.

I'm at the final stage of this year's round of Spring Cleaning, and hoo boy, this is gonna be fun.

(I get to go through all my childhood stuff and figure out what's staying and what's not.)
