SO I dropped my phone in the toilet.... and some giveaways I just must mention!

Yesterday started out promising. It as my first Groundhog day and I was SUPER excited. I taught a fabulous lesson(Pinterest inspired of course), I took a ton of pictures for my blog and overall, things were going really well. Good class participation. Good listening.
Then I had to go to the bathroom. I am so embarrassed to admit this, but I actually dropped my phone in the toilet. My DROID phone.
After I had gone to the bathroom.(Let me just tell you that after this happened, the day pretty much went down hill). 
So, now I am stuck with a temporary, ghetto, turn- of- the - century cell phone for the next couple days until my replacement phone arrives. I also am stuck with the residual trauma caused by my NON- HYGIENIC experience. You see, when one's phone drops into the toilet, one instantly reach for it. One does not  think what they are doing.  Because its your phone. (You know, the phone that cost like $200.00 dollars with all the cool "apps," the Words with Friends, the GPS and the Facebook, and my pictures and MY LIFE ON IT.)  Then you realize that maybe you should have probably gotten maybe some rubber gloves before reaching into the bathroom toilet. I think I scrubbed my arm for a good 20 minutes.  I have this thing about germs sometimes(you should have seen me when the class next to us had a LICE outbreak... I was ready to shave my head.)
UGHHHHHH!  Note to self, put phone down before using bathroom!

Anyways, I will be posting my Groundhog pics  but I had to take them today again on my temporary phone which doesn't seem to have that great of a camera. So I apologize.

On a brighter note, I couldn't help but notice the blogs have lit up with giveaways. And you know I love free stuff.
