I’m going to say something nice about the iPhone. Haters gonna hate; I’m sure your Droids & Datas & Daleks all have similar functions. But I love the notepad. I use it to make grocery lists, & also to write down now inexplicable things I wanted to remember, like this:
What was the purpose of that? Was it inspired by the conspicuously-absent-from-Twitter Killpundit? Was it a user name I briefly considered?
Here are some other notes, of varying import.
On January 5, 2010, I was evidently on the phone with Tabz, as I attributed these two statements to her:
“To me, he’s like…the Pope.”
“The pool is maturity.”
I recall wanting to make t-shirts out of these tidbits…t-shirts that would make sense to no one, t-shirts that hipsters would be over in 5 weeks.
I also write down what are to me significant visions, both waking & in dreams. To prove the dates, I’ve screen capped em:

“B4 my descent into illness-precipitated mealiness, I used to attend my fair share of hoity toity Republican soirée thingies.
Enjoy their $
By “enjoy their $” I’m pretty sure I meant that Republicans acknowledge money & don’t agonize over it like limousine liberals. PJ has to be PJ O’Rourke, but it could also be Pajamas Media. God knows to whom this was directed.
The rest of my notes include classified information about my car & shopping needs, though you can guess exactly what my last one says…
