My new iPhone 5 — one week later
It was precisely a week ago — 11:01 a.m. Wednesday, September 26, 2012 — that the UPS guy handed me a small box containing my much anticipated iPhone 5.
Since that time a lot has happened.
1. I opened the box Thursday September 27.
2. I removed the phone and Lightning cable from the box Friday September 28.
3. That same day I placed the phone in a Thought Out company holder made for the iPhone 4/4S to keep it off the table and out of harm's way.
4. I went about my business.
Today marks the beginning of week 2 with my new device.
No, I have NOT yet turned it on.
And I do not know when I will.
I am content to simply stare at it with awe and wonder, much as the astronauts on the moon in "2001: A Space Odyssey" regarded the black monolith when they encountered it.
If you don't understand why my behavior makes perfect sense to me, you will never, ever, understand what makes me tick.
Which is OK, because Gray Cat twigs perfectly.

Gentlemen, you can't fight in here - this is the War Room!
Please, no dead bodies. Especially Gray Cat ones.
Being utterly unfathomable is a huge part of what makes you so interesting, Joe.

Over my and Gray Cat's dead bodies. Bring it on.

The rest of the proto humans are going to take a humerus to that obelisk pretty soon now.

And that's why Gray Cat is the perfect companion.
In addition to her adorable white feet.

When did you first start ticking Joe?
