While standing in line during the holiday rush . . . and why is it called “holiday rush” when we spend so much time standing in line?  ANYway, I amused myself by assigning different ringtones to the contact list in my phone.  My hubby got the Angry Birds theme because after years of being all superior because he wasn’t addicted to computer or phone games, guess who I caught playing Angry Birds?  One son got the Harry Potter theme and the other got Chumbawumba’s “Tubthumping” (I Get Knocked Down).  My brother-in-law, the former jazz musician, has “Sing Sing Sing.”  I tried to find the sisters song from the movie White Christmas for my sister, but haven’t yet.  In the meantime, I assigned her a tune called “The Sister Song”.  My mom’s calls are announced by a robotic voice that says, “Your mother is attempting to reach you on your cellular device” over and over again.  Mom doesn’t call my cell phone very often.

My college roomie has the TCU fight song as her ringtone.  I found the Pink Panther theme, but I can’t figure out who should get that one.  I’d give it to myself, but I assigned myself the loudest ringtone I could because the only time I call my phone is when I can’t find it.

Does anyone else play with ringtones?  What are some of the ones you’ve used?

    :) I have three ringtones.

    #1 Is for the hubby ~ Tim McGraw’s Real Good Man.

    #2 ~ Is for my youngest daughter Ashley Green Day’s Basketcase. It’s her favorite song by the group.

    #3 ~ Is for everyone else who calls it’s George Straight’s The Cowboy Rides Away. Nothing beats King George in the state of Texas! :)

    My hubby has Alan Jackson’s Country Boy.

    And I have no clue what my daughter has because she is always changing hers. LOL

    Have a great weekend everyone.

  2. Do I lose my Texas citizenship if I admit that I don’t like Country Western music? I like your “Real Good Man” for your hubby. :)

    Hi Heather,

    I’m one of those rare birds that rarely uses her cell, only has a Tracfone! The phone comes in handy when I am traveling or just away from home but nearby. Since it is prepaid I do use it for any long distance calls. There are so many people that can’t seem to function away from technology & I am an old fashion woman that thinks they are missing out on a lot of “real life”. I also have a Facebook page but rarely go there! My grandkids mostly talked me into joining.

    They call it the “Holiday Rush” because most people are trying to rush around doing to much for the holidays! Sadly that includes waiting in line! Personally I love doing what I can online before I get dressed. It is too easy & fun!! :)

    • Did you shop on Cyber Monday?? I understand about not liking all the technology. We were just telling my mother-in-law that even if she didn’t like using a cell phone, there weren’t that many payphones available anymore. My son dragged me onto Facebook, but I like seeing what the family is up to. ;)

    Hi Heather! I love assigning ring tones! There used to be a TV show where the main character’s assistant assigned ringtones to everyone in his directory according to her opinion of them which was hilarious, if embarrassing to him. Inspired, I created some for my family and friends.

    For the new year I changed my husband from NEED YOU NOW to Sonny & Cher’s I GOT YOU, BABE (his gets changed a lot)
    Others are:
    The GOOD, BAD & THE UGLY theme – parents
    A barked WILLIAM TELL’S OVERTURE – friend with 7 dogs
    Amy Winehouse’s REHAB – crazy sister
    Disney’s Snow White’s theme – sweet sister
    Lady Gaga’s BAD ROMANCE – critique partner which is a total joke because she’s a wonderful writer
    LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD – best friend
    A bagpipe fan friend has Amazing Grace played by bagpipes
    SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL–I’m taking the 5th on that one.

    Happy New Year!
