I wonder if the "there's nothing to do here" is just because, living there, you know most of everything to do and there's nothing new and exciting?
Everyone always seems to have that same complaint, but at the same time I can't really believe what I just said above, as the amount of things to do here really is tiny. (But it implies that most places are just abhorrently boring by nature, which seems wrong, too?)
Just a reference update that nothing new has happened since then.
At some point the ability to push "3" on the main menu was added; it tells you how many messages there are (22).
There is also the option to seek back and forth (4 and 6?) and change the volume (7 and 9 for up/down, 8 to reset?).
Do y'all spend the holidays with family, friends, neither? Both?
I guess the lines are blurry for those of us whose friends are family, but in my case I used to go with my "actual" family for most years. This year I might skip that and stay home with friends; I've grown increasingly distant with family over the last few years, and I'm not really interested in the gift aspect.
