MEMOJI?!? Really Necessary?

Does the world really need a MEMOJI?  For those who don’t know, the term is a combination of “me” and “emoji” to indicate a personal emoji. Here’s a brief video tutorial on what a memoji is.

Memoji – The Unnecessary

There used to be very few things less self-centered than a personal blog (like this one).  Now Apple has fixed that with the ability to create a cartoon face of yourself that will wink, talk, stick out its (your) tongue, etc.

With my recent switchover to a new mobile phone carrier, I considered upgrading my iPhone from an iPhone 6 to something more advanced.

First of all, I thought I had to upgrade my iPhone to get onto the new carrier, so I was weighing my options and the associated costs.

As appealing to my ego as memoji capability is, I couldn’t justify upgrading to an iPhone X for such frivolous and egotistical reasons.

I was grateful when Thaddeus figured out that I could move to the new carrier using my iPhone 6.  My phone has all the functionality I need.  I’ll stick with it and boring old texts done with…well, text.

At one point, I’m sure I will be forced to upgrade my phone, but for now, I’m good.

Any of you have any fantastic youmoji that might convince me otherwise?

I did end up starting the sleeves on the Ensign Brook DK Cardigan.

I’ve decided to both sleeves semi-concurrently.  It will make it a lot easier to remember the shaping on the second sleeve.

I was also tidying up my crafting area and found a crumpled mass of red lace-weight cotton.  I quickly steam-blocked it and found this!

Sad when I can’t even remember doing this, but awesome that I have a new finished piece to display!
