In my quest to become a real boy. Phone.

I had a list of things I needed to do to become a real boy (like the velveteen rabbit), and I crossed the last one off today: I got a cell phone contract. It cost me a £150 deposit (because they think I'm still velveteen, even though they acknowledge I might be a rabbit), and though I got a £100 rebate that will be applied to my bill over time, I still had to fork over £50 for the phone I wanted. So I'm down rather a pretty penny today, but ... no one said that becoming a real boy was easy.

I'm off to Bologna tonight, staying at a really cute hotel. I'm also leaving behind my new phone and taking my old Motorola with me, planning on not really using it at all, of course. Man, I need my own camera, though! I'm also taking another Jo Clayton book with me, as well as the Proust (on page 84) and the Jim Butcher book a guy at work loaned me. I finally finished The Battle of Evernight, and while I did enjoy the first two books and the ending of this one was a surprise to me, this one should have been a half its size. Blast that Cecilia Dart-Thornton, she let me down! But I've got my books read list up to 17, so at least I finished it and can move on to something else.

Back Sunday night, five pounds heavier and probably a little sunburnt. Yay!
