Shiny New Plastic

I've not felt particularly scribe-like this past week. You would probably know that, it having been a week since my last post. Yes, Suzanne, my sleep was depraved... Let's see, worked 6.30pm to 4.30am last Friday night. Didn't get to sleep until 7am, then up at 12.30 to get to the other side of Brisbane to help an uncle move by 1.30pm. But no, and thank you Suzanne, not in fact needed until close to 3pm, so sat around most of that time before moving boxes, furniture and other such things into a large truck until 4.15pm. Home with enough time to shower and get out the door to church dinner, straight from there to an engagement party. Home relatively early, midnight, but couldn't sleep until 3.30am. Up again at 4.30am to be at work at 5. Yes, one hour of sleep before hitting a 9 hour shift on Sunday. Sundays are busy anyway, so after driving Korean couple Darby and Cathy home from church and talking to Kate in the car, I got to bed around 1am again. Yes, Suzanne, I think depraved is an accurate description of my state of sleep over that weekend - whether the expression was intended or not.

But what did I do this week? Well, I've got a new mp3 player, new mobile phone, some new clothes... The mp3 player is not an iPod unfortunately; I couldn't justify the expense and so got a cheap 256mb one with FM and voice recording built in, which is good. The phone is a Nokia 6610i, pretty sweet. $20/month with $15/month credit free. I don't spend more than $15 or $20 a month on calls/txts, so $5/month for a new phone is pretty sweet methinks. New clothes - well, let's just say Kate has been helping my fashion rating. Making me look better...if that's even possible! Ha. ha.

Well, tomorrow I get to play sport again after some four or five months without. Very much looking forward to running around with a ball again and beating someone. Unfortunately if I crash tackle some stick-thin soccer player I'll get sent off... it's just not rugby y'know? At least it's being competitive.

I'll try to keep in touch a little more than weekly, but I make no promises. Ah yes, back to university on Monday. Looking forward to everything except French, seeing as I've forgotten most of what I learnt last year. Three months of not reading, writing or speaking a language you're trying to learn can do that to you.
