After many long years with Qwest– who never did me any favors and in fact has irritated me plenty of times– I finally decided to switch to Vonage phone service. With a “referral” from my friend Megan, we’ll get two months free. Then I’ll have all those nifty features like caller ID, forwarding, digital voicemail, etc. And maybe I’ll be as happy as this guy:

The only sad thing is I’ll actually have to stop using my ancient answering machine… the only answering machine I’ve ever owned, the one I used in college back in 1990, the one with the teeny cassette tape to record the messages. Eighteen years of loyal service. Long live the answering machine.
