I Don't Buy Shoes, I Buy Ringtones

It's true: I don't usually spend money on ridiculous pairs of shoes like most girls because I have big feet. It's hard to have a shoe fetish, when you have Sasquatch feet.

So I have to spend my money on other frivolous things.

Sometimes those things are cell phone ringtones. I almost always hate the built-in ringtones that cell phones come with. I get embarrassed for people when their phones ring and a cheesy synthesized musical phrase bounces off the surrounding air particles. Yes, I know that at $2.99, ringtones really are a waste of money. Yes, I know cell phone companies make the built-in ringtones sound dumb on purpose. Yes, I know that most people probably just don't care.

I happen to. I'm the kind of person who would like to change my ringtone for every holiday, but I hold back because I realize that would be taking it too far. I do like to have something kinda catchy to rock out to when someone calls, though. However, I don't want anything completely obnoxious or annoying. So late last night, when my brain was fighting sleep, I bought two new ringtones:
The sad thing is that it's already lunchtime today, and nobody has called me yet . . . So if I want to hear my music, I'll have to check my phone's sound setting, and listen to it manually. :)

What say you, readers? What do you think of ringtones? Do you buy them? Why or why not?


Thing I'm thankful for: living the good life. I have everything I need, to the point of wasting money on ringtones. I'm very aware of that blessing . . .

My ringtone is the one that came on my phone but I like it because it scares the crap out of me every time I hear it. Apparently that works for me. I used to have "I love it when you call me Big Papa" as my ringtone for Lisa but that phone has since bitten it.

Don't buy them because the technically inclined can put them on the phone for free.

And no I don't mean steal the song, I just mean unlock the java feature on your phone that your carrier disabled so you can load your own songs and other stuff.

I also hate the ringtones they give. I can't stand the thought of my phone making that awful noise, but I'd also rather have a chocolate shake from mcdonald's at that price... so I do. :D
I leave my phone on the standard ringing noise. It works for landlines, right? OK, it's totally lame, I know.

I tried changing ringtones once. Then I kept missing calls because I didn't realize that it was my phone ringing. I changed it back.

I have Nellie McKay's Pounce as my ringtone. Its REALLY annoying I love it! I also had a bjork ringtone I made. But it was hard to hear.

LOVE your Edward Scissorhands!

I totally buy them, and I even get them custom for a person. Like Ryan's ring tone is Better Together by Jack Johnson, my normal rington is Coldplay's Panic, I used to have Shake your Money Maker for Ashley (williams) Terry... I am a fan.

Sigh, I need your ringtones! I used to buy some, but my phone is always on vibrate or silent, so I've given up the practice - although, I've always coveted the quacking duck.

How do you feel about the animal ringtones?
