Electronic Horror Story and a request

Electronics are a wonderful thing. They help our society, make it easier to communicate and are a huge help with homework. They can also be a pain. For example, my phone battery died two weeks ago. The company sent me a replacement battery under my warranty, but that died. Now they are sending me a new phone since it's obviously not the battery. I am not super attached to my phone. I used to be when I first got it, but now it is just a tool. But in today's society, it is actually a very hard tool to live without. I kept having to borrow my roommate's phones and every time I did I felt guilty for using their minutes. It's been strange not talking to my parents very often. I normally text my mom throughout the day so it was weird not being able to do that.
I also had to use my computer as an alarm clock (it's got the strangest buzzer) and wear a watch that I'd even forgotten that I had. The little knob on the side of the watch that you pull out to change the time is giving my hand a bruise and it kind of looks like one of those little red ring-worm marks. So I call it my ring-worm bruise. It took me forever to figure out what it even was, but I guess I sit with my hand up against my neck a lot and just the way I bend my hand and the way the watch sits makes that little button press up against my hand. It's strange looking.
And not only was my cell phone useless but I've been without internet for about a week. Now I really wouldn't have minded except that email/Facebook had become my only source of communication and a lot of my classes were trying to be paperless so almost all my syllabus's and homework assignments were online. I was able to survive and as you can see I have my internet back, but it was stressful.
So, there it is. My electronic stories for the month. Hopefully I won't have any more issues for at least a little while.
Here is the request part of my post. I don't like the title of my blog. This is probably the third time I will be changing it, and actually I would have changed it already except for one small problem. I have no idea what to change it to. I don't want something cheesy or along the lines of "My Blog" and unfortunately I haven't been able to come up with anything good yet. If you have any ideas just make a comment on this post and if I find one I like I'll use it. Thanks!
