While taking a break from my couch-based movie-watching second day of extreme laziness to make some coffee, I heard the ringtone indicating a call from my husband. I nearly broke my leg tripping over cats to get to the living room to grab the phone. When I picked it up, I noticed it looked like the front-facing camera was on. What the hell? OMG! My husband is using FaceTime! My first video call!
It took a while to connect, because he is officially out in the middle of nowhere, but when it finally did, wow … so cool to see Lin and to see where he is. He's on the side of a cliff … in the middle of nowhere … in northeastern New Mexico. It was awesome to see him and totally cool to see the scenery.
I'm never going to video chat as a regular thing with just everyone. I don't especially like talking on the phone without being seen, and doing it with a camera in my face is even less fun for me. But my husband knows what I look like when I've just crawled out of bed after a twelve hour Torchwood marathon and little sleep and before my first cup of coffee, so if he wants to FaceTime, I'll answer his calls … no matter how unkempt I am. The rest of you lot will have to attempt to schedule appointments with me, if you ever want to video chat though, so I have time to make myself presentable!
Or, just forget about it. I really hate video chat. Except when it's my husband, because I love him enough to counter the loathing of being seen while on the phone. LOL!
