New phone & sketchbook - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

03:20 pm - New phone & sketchbook

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Mom and I just got back from shopping for new cell phones. I have now completely replaced everything that was in my bag when it was stolen! And they let us keep our numbers, so if you have my cell phone number, it's still good.

Did I say I've completely replaced everything? Well, almost. You know my sketchbook, the Komtrak Inspiral book with the cool translucent green cover? I went to Texas Art Supply yesterday, but they didn't have any with translucent colors. Just black. Well, I already had a bunch of other Inspiral books with black covers at home, and I've been using one of those. But darn it, I missed my green cover! So I found Komtrak's website, and sure enough, they have sketchbooks with tinted covers available. So I called them today. (They don't have an online order form; they've scanned their catalog and uploaded it as a PDF, and you have to call a number or email them. Apparently they think it's still 1996.) And I ordered three sketchbooks with green covers!

(re Komtrak's site), hey it might be what they want and what works for them!

I currently have a client that I set up a while with a full web order capability - he recently contacted me and said he doesn't make much money from that, most of his business is people walking into his store and ordering stuff the old fashioned way, so he is having me replace his online order pages with PDFs because it works better for him. I've learned long ago never to argue with the customer if they think something is right.

Yeah, I figure this company does most of its business with retailers like Texas Art Supply, and they probably prefer calling.

Any word from the police yet? I can't imagine the license plate would lead to a complete dead end. :(

I called them today and they said they're way behind, and my case hasn't even been entered yet, and that I should try back in a week.

And I'm sure that whatever the thief was going to do with my bag, he's most likely done it already. So I'm not expecting to see my stuff ever again.
