I bought a new phone.

Mutterings continued.

I had long held off buying a mobile phone as I really don't like them. Interfering, noisy instruments that strip the users of all semblance of manners. I eventually bought one about 3 and half years ago and it's getting a little old. It has a fairly new battery (only a few months old) but I have to recharge the damn thing every couple of days, even when I don't use it.

So this morning I took myself to the Telstra shop and got another one. It's got interchangeable picture thingies in the cover and has a camera and a torch and a radio (apparently). It won't, however, do the dishes or feed the cats, a definite oversight by the manufacturers.

I'll probably still only use it to do the occasional text message and ring the RAC.

From Ian McKellen's Rumour page:

"McKELLEN'S SNORING DISTRACTS THEATRE-GOERS: Movie actor SIR IAN McKELLEN was caught napping during a London stage performance on Wednesday - and snored so loudly he distracted the entire auditorium. The LORD OF THE RINGS star, 64, was sitting in the audience for the opening night of THE HOLY TERROR at the DUKE OF YORK'S THEATRE in the capital, when his snoring could be heard reverberating round the venue. A source says, 'Some people looked around to see where the noise was coming from. He must have slept for about 20 minutes.' "

Fact: "I have never been known to snore — ask whoever you can find! As for snoozing in the theatre, think of it. At the end of a long day's work, you settle down in a comfy seat and they turn the lights off. I have slept through many a distinguished production. The only satisfactory aspect of this report is that my age was reported correctly." — Ian McKellen, 4 May 2004 "
