Bloody Telstra

I am currently without internet at home.

I got a few phone calls Wednesday morning from the guy delivering the water tanks, so I know the phone was working then. The Green One rang me at home Wednesday night and didn't get an answer so rang me on my mobile. I assumed that I just didn't hear it ring so it didn't worry me at the time. Thursday morning no internet and no dial tone on the phone, plus if I rang the home number from the mobile it just rang out without the home phone even ringing.

I have had instances where the phone has just dropped out temporarily so I wasn't too concerned. However when I got home last night the phone was still out and the internet was still down so I rang Telstra's faults line.

The problem is because I didn't report it until Thursday night, the guarantee to get it working again isn't until close of business Monday. Hopefully it will all be working by end of today, otherwise I'm going to be without internet over the weekend and that's going to suck.

One problem with ADSL, if the phone line goes down, so does the ADSL connection. Oh well.

Poor Hal :-(
If you get desperate, you're welcome to pop out here.
I'll even make sponge cake. No fat, full of real eggs from real chooks. Good for you.

Thanks for the offer.

However, there's some work that I want to do over the weekend that I can't do on anyone else's machine and I need an internet connection for.

If my connection is down, it ain't happening.

Ahhh well... best of luck then.
If you get bored, you're welcome to drop over anyway.

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
