Mum has been wanting a mobile phone for a while ever since her last few emergencies. Dad has been promising her a cheapo phone for just as long but nothing came of it. Last night she complained again and I decided to give her my new Nokia phone (the free one I was given when I signed up with Virgin).
Dad saw the phone and it was instant lust. He generously gave mum his old clunker claiming it was easier to use. She didn't care because she doesn't really need it except for emergencies. Dad was delirious with all the new functionalities of the Nokia.
D: Oh look, a camera *snap snap snap*
Me: *reaches for phone* Yeah, it's pretty good and you can zoom in and out like...
D: *slap hand away* My phone!
D: Oooohhh, GPS! It's broken. It doesn't work.
Me: It's not broken. We're inside the house and not moving.
D: Field Trip!
And off we went on a little trip to KFC Subiaco.
Only this morning did he notice his contacts list was missing. Minor details. Luckily they were all in his directory and could be copied over.
On other news, special_trille and I had an amazing time in Canberra with haunted_attics and our fabulous hostess isilya. Our accommodation was five stars (except the pillows - only 4.5 stars) and the food, oh, the fabulous food! The company, as always brilliant. Attic's housemates who were wonderful and Isilya's neighbours who were a riot. Thank you both for making our stay so amazing.
We went to see The Audreys play at the ANU Bar. Fantastic performance, crap venue and people (at the back - front people were brilliant). We also went to see the Turner to Monet exhibition at the National Art Gallery. I fell in love with the Luce and the Van Gogh's "Tree Trunks in the Grass". For reals, I’ve seen the painting before as a print and didn’t care for it, but to see it in real life, the colours are so rich you can’t take your eyes off it.
The rest of our stay was spent eating. On Sunday we started with muffins for breakfast and a pot of tea. We went to the markets and had more food (tastings - we stayed for hours sampling the food) and then went back to Attics place to drink ginger wine, eat flavoured macadamia nuts and then gorged ourselves with the most amazing spicy pork ribs and a lemon delicious for dessert. The next day we had breakfast which became an antipasto lunch of bagels, trout spread, spicy salsa dip, cummin flavoured cheese and olives. We played with the Wii for a bit and then it was dinner with pesto and parmesan chicken breasts and lemon baked potatoes and salad. We played a wicked game of UNO and then had supper of cracker thins and pate and more of the salsa dip.
I'm not going to bore you with other foods we ate because we ate. A LOT. OMG! And everything was so delicious. So again, thank you ladies for the company and the food.
We have tickets for Beauty and the Beast.
Date: 10 September 2008
Time: 8 pm
Venue: Regal Theatre
Seats: G18 - G 22 and H19 - H20 (yes, there's a split seating arrangement...better than sitting on the side)
It's gazillions of months away, but keep this in your diary.
Yesterday I was looking at middle row CC tickets for Wicked on Saturday 19 July.
Today I went and checked and all I could get were 4 tickets, E 19-22 for Sunday 27 July at 1pm. Those still interested, please put your hands up. We can either catch a plane after the show, or we can fly out Monday morning.
I have 3 spare tickets.
I know this is pricey so I don't expect anyone to put their hand up for this. But ladies living in Canberra...are you interested?
The play is: As You Like It.
Ticket is $31 (but you can try and negotiate a cheaper price with cupid).
Date: 12 January 2008
Time: Show starts 8 pm start. Meet at 7.15 for picnic.
Cost: $31 ($1 for P&H/booking fee)
Attendees: me, trille, isilya, black samvara, cupidsbow, grouchie girl and grouchie boy.
Blush Day Spa:
Date: 10 January 2008
Time: 2.30 pm.
Includes: 60 min massage, 30 mins polish and buff (feet) or 30 mins mini-facial, plus refreshments.
Let me know if you can't make something so I can do a quick reshuffle. I need at least a week's notice.
10 Jan 2pm.
We can try a brand new place called Jasmin. I can not guarantee it's any good, but it's certainly cheap. We can try a half hour massage to see what it's like ($35).
I'm really keen on Blush, but it is pricey. Am willing to pay for that, not sure if you are ok with that.
