Shiny!

Had a nice, quiet weekend, something I've been looking forward to for a while.

Went to the gym, did a lot of washing, and went in to town to do a bit of shopping. Went to Mind Games and bought Hey, That's My Fish, went to Lush to buy more soap (good timing as I had less than a sliver of my last bit left) and bought a new phone and changed phone providers.

Going to Three was a bad idea. Their coverage wasn't as good as I would have liked, and their service sucked (look here for details as to why I think that). The phone I originally got with them (Sony Ericsson Z800i) didn't work, and the replacement phone I borrowed off paradigmshifty (Motorola Razr) had it's own issues. The three Nokia's I had before that all worked wonderfully, so I decided to change phone networks and go back to a Nokia.

After looking around, it ended up being a choice between Optus and Vodafone. After discussing it with the guys here at work and looking at the web sites for both companies, I ended up going with Vodafone.

Went in yesterday and got it all sorted out, including porting my number from Three to Vodafone. My old phone finally decided to stop working about an hour ago, and my new Nokia E65 is all ready and able. Except for one thing: all my phone numbers are on my old phone and I am not manually transferring them across. Somewhere at home I have the cable to back up all the information on the old phone, except for the fact that the last time I saw it was in Brisbane, which means that it's in a box somewhere and as a result will take some time for my to find.

So, could I ask people a favour? If you are someone I usually SMS to, could you please SMS my number (with who you are) so I actually have your number on my phone? Hopefully this coming weekend I should be able to port all the numbers across, but until then I don't have any numbers on the phone without your help.

Yay! I have a shiny!

I just ported back to Vodafone myself, having finally gotten sick of Three's crap service and worse attitude.

That's about what I was thinking.

I take it then you don't want the Motorola back then? I'm wondering if it's safe to put it on the railway tracks just so I can see it get destroyed...

I'll get it back if you don't mind, just in case someone needs a spare at some time. It will probably work fine on another network.

Hey, That's My Fish????!?!?!?!

That game sounds both insane and simultaneously awesome-like-crack. Just the name made me giggle like a little school-girl on acid. :P

Well, for a start you're playing a penguin...

Silly but fun. Rules take about 30 seconds to explain, and that's about it. I'm sure we'll play a few games while you're down here.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
