LA Essentials

november 28, 2006 - day 59

J and I went to get me a cell phone today. You can’t live in LA and not have a cell phone. It’s one of the things J definitely wanted me to have as soon as possible, so we would be able to reach each other at all times like when he’s at the studio or when I am out. Isn’t it cute, my new red phone? :)

We got a family shared plan with J’s parents which will work pretty well, because most calls will be between us. Cell phone plans in the US work totally different from the ones in Germany and I’ll have to get used to that. You pay for incoming call and text messages and there is no such thing as plans with no monthly access fee or minimum balance. You usually have to get a plan with monthly anytime minutes which usually starts at $39.99 and up and then you get unlimited night and weekend minutes to other Verizon customers. Oh yeah, we switched from T-Mobile to Verizon, by the way. If any of you guys are with Verizon – send me your cell phone numbers :) We can talk for free on the weekends :)

The weekend was nice and quiet and we just enjoyed spending time together. We went to see friends for dinner last night and J and his friend have been back at the studio as of today. I am definitely going to start to create our “home” this week. The whole apartment is a mess right now, I haven’t even really unpacked my suitcases. We want to clean out and rearrange the whole apartment and it’s going to be my job to set it all up. I am looking forward to creating our home… I just have to start doing it :)

  1. Aww, I have a little red cell phone, too. Love it!
    It’s so exciting to create a new home! I think you will do a great job with that, once you’ve started :) I can’t wait to get our furniture to the house and start buying new stuff, like dining room furniture. It’s all so exciting!

  2. That color is so hot! Love it!
