Remind me

You know how I've been having this problem with my memory?

I did tell you that, right?

I don't know...I can't remember.

But, anyway, I'm always on the lookout for things to help me.

I got My Lil Reminder. (Honestly....I really did!)

But the problem with it is that you can only record one thing at a time.

For instance, I record: My car is on level 4, section C.

Then if I record: Buy milk, eggs and toilet paper records over the first message.

So there I am with milk, eggs and toilet paper but I can't find my car.

So that My Lil Reminder is kind of a dud.

But now I found this cool site.

Here's what you do - you put the Reqall phone number on your cellphone (but if you put it on speed dial, you have to remember what the speed dial number is, and that's a problem. Heh... But I used the number 4 - as in 4-get. Get it?).

Then you call the number and just say whatever it is you want to remember.

Then when you get home, you'll have an email reminding you!

Or you can call the Reqall number again and it will tell you what you said.

If you say the word "buy" - it puts it into your "shopping list" on the web site (in addition to sending an email to you).

So, if I'm driving and thinking - and I think of something I want to remember or buy - I just call the Reqall number and then I can forget about it.

(Oh yeah...I would have forgotten about it anyway. Oh well....)
