    Here I am. My name is Katherine and I have had my Droid for about a week. So far I love it! I'd love to hear people's favorite apps.

    About me, if you care...lessee... I'm 37 for another month. I'm an artist for a living (painting and sculpture, mostly). I have a 14 year old son. I juggle for fun. Um... there is a lot more but it's better presented by just visiting my website: http://opalcat.com

    Welcome! If you want to impress your 14 year old, check out Swype as a keyboard replacement. My 16 year old was freaked out by how good it is. :biggrin:

    I'm fairly new to Swype too, so let me know what tips you find. It saved me trying to keep up my kids texting.

    Welcome to the forums, Katherine! I love your cats!

    Roadrash, (the one in my avatar) was rescued at 5 weeks after someone tossed him from a moving car on the interstate! He's a jewel :)

    I have 3 cats. I hope they know who threw your kitty from the moving car, and I say lets do that to them in retaliation.

    I hate people who are mean to animals. Grrr.

    And yeah, once you can no longer count from 20 to 0, you should probably no longer be doing NYE specials on TV for a nation-wide audience. :X

    I changed my avatar but it's still me--don't get confused. ;)
    I have now rooted my phone and am running DroidMod... not sure I'm ready to do any other ROMs yet, but we'll see. My husband is considering rooting his Droid, too. Heh.
