I carry a bag with me when I go places. I usually have some sort of electronic device, a camera, maybe some sunglasses, other assorted junk — more than will fit in pockets. I used to use army surplus canvas shoulder bags, but the quality dropped so fast during the 90s that eventually they would only last a year or two before developing major holes. Eventually I gave in and bought a Timbuk2 custom messenger bag.
Just got my landline bill, and it had a charge from “US MUSIC FIND INC” for $14.99. A Google search located them; they’re apparently a ringtone vendor offering ringtones each month for a monthly fee. Ringtones for my landline? Oh, you’d better believe I didn’t sign up for that. I don’t even buy ringtones for my cell phone, because it’ll play any old MP3 file as a ringtone and I’m more than capable of making my own.
