It’s been a week of new toys for me! On Friday I got my new phone, a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android phone. It is my new favourite everything. I’ve been playing about setting it up to work with my various accounts, and adding some fun apps to make it a little bit more me.
One of the apps I’ve really been enjoying is the Retro Camera app – it’s really fun for a free app, and it can produce some really good images. I took this one yesterday afternoon – it’s a very broken piano over at Dan’s grandpa’s old house. His uncle Phil is in the process of doing the house up, so it’s a wee bit messy…
I also downloaded Flickr Droid so I can upload to Flickr and keep on top of things there whilst I’m out and about, and I do believe that Twidroid is my new favourite Twitter friend. :love: In exciting news there is a WordPress app for Android, which I am pleased to say I have installed – it is excellent, does exactly what it says on the tin. This fills me with lots of exciting ideas! I’m thinking about starting some kind of 365 days photo project, or maybe just a little mobile photoblog kind of thing… anyone got any thoughts on this? I think I want to keep glitterbat.net as a place for longer entries, detail, old school sitting at my laptop or the big rig posts.
Oh, and my fringe is purple again – well, almost black for now. The magic of the purple dye I use means that it starts out black-ish (with a super bright purple flash in sunlight!) then fades through many other purples to a hideous pink (that most people like 😛 ) before being re-dyed. The Enchanted Forest green was very nice, but it only lasted for about two weeks before looking pastel-y turquoise. The purple feels more like me anyway, it’s been like this for a long time now, and it’s kind of who I am. :heart:
