But I Still Love Technology

I love technology, but voice technology can only do so much with a southern accent.  I am sure you are all well aware of this from your experiences with Siri....although Siri is pretty damn good.

When Jack and I went on our trip in January we used a Google Voice phone number as one of the many means of communication with family.  We had some trouble with the voice part but the texting worked beautifully.  A few times we tried to call family but the connection was too broken up and they would call back and leave a voicemail.

When you get a voicemail on Google Voice it translates it to an email and sends it to you.  I now present to you the two messages we recieved while in Switzerland, courtesy of the translation by Google Voice: 
  1. "Hey sides. I couldn't hear anything. No. When you called a few minutes ago, so I don't know, just can't talk. I'll knock on the old phone here but The White House. You can run, hey I need, just in case you were pregnant okay. Love You helped out. I have a good plan. Bye bye. "
  2. "Hi dad, passed out when you come and we were interested in the central time on it was a competitive close to me and if you wanna call back. Love you. Bye bye. "
So I am all like, Whaaaat?  You can't talk because you are at the White House?  I am pregnant?  I can run?  I helped you?  Who passed out?  Where is dad?  The Central time zone is competing for something?

The I realized I could actually LISTEN to the messages.  Basically, they both said something totally normal like this:  "Hey Sage and Jack.  I coudn't hear when you called a few minutes ago but I'm at the house if you want to call back.  Hope you are having a good time".

So thank you Google Voice for momentarily bringing me out of my snow/wine/cheese/hot tub induced coma into a state of total confusion.  Now I'd really like to see the Google Voice interpretation of the "S&%$ Southern Women Say" videos. 

Also thanks because I now have Kip's wedding song in my head.
