So I got an iPhone this weekend.
I don’t regret anything about the switch over from Blackberry to iPhone. The camera alone is fantastic. To prove it, and because I’m lazy :), all the photos for today’s post were taken on my brand-new iPhone 4S – which, btw, has the same 8megapixel stat as my old Olympus SLR (which I am also replacing, very soon. Yay!)
One question about iPhones though – can someone, anyone help me?
My Blackberry received emails INSTANTLY. Like, as soon as one came in it beeped loudly and I checked and it was brilliant. My iPhone is lacking in that department.
So far, the choices are to either check it manually – ie click into my Mail every 30 seconds (as if) – or for it to check every 15 minutes, which seems kind of pathetic to me. I must be missing something. Can anyone help?
I would owe you big time! And now, let’s begin this special iPhone edition of What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by the delightful Jenn at Peas and Crayons.
As this is always about Tuesday rather than Wednesday, here is what happened to kick off my Tuesday:
In my unfamiliarity with my iPhone, I turned my alarm off rather than on. I woke up at 8:15 to my mom opening my door and wondering why I wasn’t even out of bed yet. I should mention I start work at 8:30.
Luckily for me my office is a maximum 10-minute drive away. I have never gotten ready so fast in my life. I cleaned my teeth, dressed, grabbed my stuff together, put in my contacts…all in 4 minutes. I still don’t know how I managed that.
I didn’t manage to squeeze in breakfast – so once I had been at work for long enough for my stomach to seriously start growling, I ran over to Starbucks and got what I call my ‘airport breakfast’ – ie what I eat when travelling on really early-morning flights. It’s the only non-sugary minimally-processed item I can ever find to eat in an airport:
The trick? Get them to make it with steamed milk – I got soy milk added to mine (because Starbucks still doesn’t carry almond milk..!!!). Makes the oats thick and creamy. I topped it with the complimentary packets of mixed nuts and dried fruit – leaving out, of course, the brown sugar – ick.
The best snack ever at this time of year – a delicious and sweet mandarin!
This was the first time I’ve had gluten in a while, due to my experiment. I didn’t notice any immediate after-effects! I still wouldn’t usually go in for this much bread but I was in a time crunch, due to the rush to get out of the house in the morning, and so I paid a visit to Subway and got a veggie sandwich on whole grain.
I whipped myself up another stirfry, having leftover ingredients from when I made it last week.
An apple and … one of THESE beauties:
Have no fear, the recipe will soon be here! (On Friday…ssh!)
Moral of today’s story: Don’t sleep in!
