I was slow getting into that newfangled nonsense called a cell phone. I used to laugh at how obsessed people became with their ringtones. Oh heavens, the ringtone. Changing the generic mass ring to something that reflects you a bit. But then again, chances are quite a few other people still have your "unique" ring.
If I hear one more phone ring out the song line "It's too late to apologize" I may scream a girly high scream. I hear it upwards of six times a day, just from working in a retail store.
But last fall Elizabeth showed me a website one of her piano students had showed her. And we spent hours playing various rings and crying from laughter. And I quickly became one of those people obsessed with their ringtones.
When I call myself from my house number I have the Lost Phone Ring:
"Yo, yo, yo, I'm over here. Yo, here. Come and get me. I'm over here, man." (I can't find it online right now)
My usual ring is Stalker:
When my dad calls I hear Darth Vader saying "I am your father":
When my brother Clarke calls I hear the Mario Bros. Theme:
When Elizabeth calls from her cell phone I hear the Skank Alert:
When Jayar calls from his cell phone I hear This is Sparta! from 300:
(but it does not have the "this is madness" beginning)
I used to have Homer Simpson saying "That creepy weird guy is calling...oh wait, it's your dad!" but I messed up when I set it, so it got preempted by Darth Vader. Oh, and it doesn't have the Imperial March after it, just the one line.
