The big news today that the world’s first ever cloned camel has been born in Dubai has been dwarfed by the truly important story: I have my first BlackBerry.
Obviously I will now be too busy “crackberring” to write this blog, but there we are.
I have to say it was love at first mega-bite as I received my welcome email closely followed by a reply to one from me to Rupert saying ‘send me an email now’. The miracle of emails arriving in my hand was almost too much to bear. After all these years of failed Wi-Fi connections, phone-cards that don’t work, wires that don’t connect. All that is in the past. My BlackBerry and I are as one.
It may have taken me almost as long to get on to it as it did to clone the camel (around seven years apparently), but now that I have it, I am not going to let it out my sight.
