Is there a message here?


In the past few weeks, I have been gifted two different paracord bracelets by two different people who know me in two very different contexts.

Who actually listens to voicemail anyway?


Apple is supposedly working on a feature in iOS10 that will transcribe voicemail messages via Siri and then deliver them as text messages. Because everybody HATES checking their voicemail, right? I pretty much NEVER do it … because 1) it’s a pain-in-the-@$$ and B) it costs me call minutes to do it. I *thought* getting …
