Weekly Contest: Thumbwalking?

After admitting my own idiocy last week for walking around while using a BlackBerry, it occurred to me that we need some kind of snappy catch-phrase for it, like the BlackBerry prayer, BlackBerry shuffle, or the BlackBerry zombie. Let’s get those creative juices flowing, lads, because the one who can nail the phrase that fits will get a copy of Magmic’s brand new, critically acclaimed Miner 2049er. I’m still chewing through the game myself, and it’s pretty sweet. Review to come this afternoon.

LAST WEEK’S WINNER is Jeff, for taking the long view that the iPhone is still going to be around and new in 90 days. Jeff will be winning Magmic’s Deer Hunter 2, appropriately enough, since like the patient hunter, he will strike his prey only when the moment is right. … Man, ninjas who hunted deer would be awesome.

    Not sure If i qualify for the the prize, but here goes:

    How about being BlackBleary?

    As in ‘I was totaly BlackBleary, and walked right into a cop! Beat my high score in KaGlom though’

    Or how about to ‘RIMbulate’ (a cross between RIM and ambulate)
    Definition: ‘to walk from place to place while using a RIM device’

    If I do win, you can donate my prize to an orphanage or something.
