Quick update

Am crazy busy, that's why I haven't posted anything for a while. Last week at work was really hell. Had to prepare a presentation that included types of charts I hadn't done before and the colleague who could have helped me was on a business trip. Friday I was in the office until 7 p.m. and was close to crying. But everything worked out fine in the end.

Next week won't be much better as another presentation is coming up.

In other news, the weather's been great for most of April, I haven't been to the skin doctor again although my psoriasis still hasn't gone away and I saw Music & Lyrics at the movies and loved it.

New mobile

I’ve got a new mobile phone. I always had Nokia mobiles up until now – first the 3210, then the 3310 (handed down to me from my sister), then the …. I can’t remember which model. Something with i at the end. Now my provider offered me 3 different models, all not the latest ones, though, but I picked one. 2 of them were Nokias, the 3rd one was a Motorola Razr V3 in pink, Swarovski edition. This means it’s dark pink and has a heart made of Swarovski crystals (or glass stones or whatever) on the front. I wasn’t sure at first because I’m not one of those type of girls we call Tussis in German. Think Paris Hilton. Lots of pink and kitsch and tacky clothes. But I wanted a mobile that stands out and the colour is not a girly light pink (schweinchenrosa we say in German, a Schweinchen being a piglet or small pig) but a darker shade. So I have a fashion mobile now. And it’s my first Klapphandy, i.e. the display is in the top half and the keys are in the lower half and you fold it in the middle. Ha, great explanation. Sorry. What sucks is that only about 10 numbers from my phone directory showed up when I put the old SIM card in it. Don’t know why that is. And I haven’t worked out how to send MMS. Couldn’t do it with my Nokia before, can’t do it now. Damn.

If I could have gotten any model, I’d probably have picked one of those Sony Ericsson Walkman mobiles, you know, the ones that are also an mp3 player. But the Motorola is okay. It has nice keys. They are flat but a good size. Most of the newer models have tiny keys. I’m not addicted to my mobile anyway. I just send a few text messages to my best friend or make short calls to my sister to say I’ll be late or something.

I think on TV you see a lot of people who use their mobile even if they’re in their apartment or office where they have “normal” landline phones they could use. As far as I know that would be much cheaper, but of course talking on a mobile looks so much cooler, right?

Here's a pic. The colour doesn't really look that bright. And mine has a crystal heart on it, as I said.

P.S.: Still can't post from Opera browser. This sucks big time.
