Unless You Already Bought Me a Bratz Doll

In case you are all wondering what to get me for Christmas, I would like to suggest this, the BlackJack phone by Samsung. I won't actually be any cooler, nor will it ring more often (read: ever) but at least when someone sees me at my table for one with my face buried in my unfinished diary entry about how I wish I could grow a tail, their first thought will be "Hey, what a slick phone" instead of "I wonder how she's getting back to the group home."


The Blackjack. Nice work, Samsung. How many internal meetings did they hold to come up with a name for their product that was so similar to Blackberry, it actually involves the word "Black"? Some rejected ideas included:
BlackWidow
BlackCat
BlackFriday
BlackHistoryMonth
BlackHawkDown
Blackula
OnceYouGoBlackYouNeverGoBackBerry
MeetJoeBlack
AlwaysBetOnBlackJustLikeWesleySnipesSaidBackWhenHeWasSortOfCool
TheBlackFamilyThatMovedIntoTheNeighborhood
FormerD.C.MayorMarionBarry(WasBlack)
GeorgeBushDoesn'tCareAboutBlackPeople-Berry

So yeah. I still want it. I currently have a Razr and I decided it wasn't cool anymore about the time I saw one on The New Adventures of Old Christine. That's also the same show that made me sorry I had ovaries. And eyes.

More about cell phones tomorrow. Until then, could someone give me a ride?

I wanted to add something to the list, but you've pretty much covered all the bases. Good job.

Chris Rock did that song in CB4 (which I've never seen, but I have heard the song used as a clip on radio stations I won't admit to listening to)...
