Getting to Know Siri - iPhone 4S Fun

So, as I announced on Facebook a couple weeks ago, I got my hands on a new iPhone 4S. I was so excited to check out the new camera and updated features I'd heard such great things about. I still can't believe my PHONE has an 8 megapixel camera! And that's front AND back camera! It also has a flash which can be set to auto. LOVE!!!



The kid in me, though, really just wanted to get to know Siri. I'm sure you've seen the ads about her, right? If not, here it is...


This is the kind of futuristic shit we dreamed about when we were growing up in the 80's, right? Joel and I have had lots of fun coming up with tasks and questions for Siri. Here are a few examples of my questions and her answers.

Me: Siri, do a search for Rischa Heape.

Siri:

Gee, thanks for the new nick-name, Siri. Joel now calls me Orrery. *smirk*

Me: Siri, do a search for R-I-S-C-H-A. (spelled out)

Siri:

Switzerland? WTF?

Me: Sing Happy Birthday to me.

Siri:

After a failed attempt at another silly question...

Me: Who made you?

Siri:

My Siri is a smartass. I love it!

Me: Kock, knock!

Siri:

I now call my iPhone "My Precious". I have way too much fun with this thing. I loved my 3GS, too, but the new features on this thing just have me swooning. <3

Why did I not know about making folders for the apps on my iPhone before? If you knew, why didn't you clue me in? I love that it's now organized!

Sew Out of Practice

Sewing has never been my strong point. I know enough to get the basic stuff done. Even the basics can be forgotten, though, when it's been a couple years. So when I got my Singer out I knew there would be a practice sleeve that I made mistakes on. Oh, I forgot to mention what I wanted to make? I have several of those ceramic coffee cups that I use quite often. So I wanted to make a sleeve for them. Coffee Cup Sleeves are to keep you from burning your hands when you pick up the hot coffee. Like the cardboard things they stick around the Starbucks cups. I'm sure you knew all of that, but just in case there are a few non-coffee drinkers reading I might as well explain. So yeah, I made mistakes. I learned from them. My second one will be better and better still, the third. Here are the crappy cell photos from my first try.

I know; Not very straight on the stitching and maybe I should've used something other than white.

Yeah, yeah....the button MAY fall off. LOL I need to watch a YouTube video or something.

It's reversible. Like the polk-a-dots?

So there's my practice sleeve. It'll do, Pig. It'll do.
