Carry The Flame!x"Old in 2 weeks?"xIn The Hole

While I eat my pizza with donair sauce, I shall prattle a bit about my day ;P

I went down to Annapolis Royal right early this morning so that I could see the 3 torch-bearers do their little run & witness the burning passion of The Olympic Flame~! Here are the pictures I took today! I love Fort Anne, by the way. I used to go there a lot when I was in elementary school. I have always wanted to go9 sledding there ;)

I also took a few videos, though my 'cell crapped just when the runner was 10 feet infront of me, and my batteries for my camera died too :(

After this my mom took me to Greenwood to see about getting a new cellular-telephone from Bell-Aliant. I have 8 months left on my Telus contract, and it would cost $180 to pay myself out of that. Recently my battery cannot hold much of a charge, and my warrenty on it expired in October :( $60 for a new battery vs. $180 is looking more than tempting, 'specially since Motorola no longer even has RAZR batteries for sale from them directly anymore. Basically the only way I can get a new battery is on the lucky chance a Telus retailer has one in old stock. On-the-other-hand, my mom is planning on getting a basic phone for emergencies. She has decided my Christmas gift will be getting me out of my contract and going together and getting 2 new phones. My RAZR was bought in 2007, but I got it for $0 because it was old stock. I have dropped it in a bathtub, had it fail after repairs, traveled acrossed Canada & down to the United States of America with it [over 20,000KM!], glued 2 buttons back on it with Krazy Glue, and replaced the battery yearly. It is on it's last legs basically [though most phones do not have legs...]. I fell in love at first sight/holding of the LG [Lucky Goldstar~] Reveal**. It has a full QWERTY keyboard, 2.0mega-pixel camera, flips closed, comes in mofo' metalic purple, has expandable SD memory, is shapped like my RAZR [not very curvy...more blocky, which I dig the feel of], and has the same sceen size as my RAZR :3 I want it SOOO bad~♥ When we were in looking at the begining of the month, this phone was a 'brand-new Bell-Aliant exclusive'. Today I was told that it, and my 2nd choice were 'discontinued'. I did get the manager to call the other stores to get one for me though, so I hope that works out. I was right bummed though. I will also be able to keep my current number, so that is extra sexy. The only thing I hate about Bell-Aliant's plans are the rediculas North American minute prices. I pay $15 a month from Telus for 120 long-distance, to anywhere in North America. I am not paying $40 for the same deal. I guess I am going back to phone-cards again.

It is 2:32am though D: so I finish by mentioning that I went to the local Home Hardware's Ladies' Night. Wherein women get atleast 5% off their purchase determined by scratch-cards, and they also have free gifts & drawings for prizes. I got a free tin cookie-tray & a glass candle holder-thing with my purchase. I bought $0.85 cuphooks for June, a key-wind alarmclock for Kenny for Christmas, and a $1.49 sink plug to replace the one in our bathroom. I was a big shopper XD I did get to say hullo to Jeremy's sister-Kim-who works there though. She told me I should tell him that the free girly gifts I got were his present :P To which he responded something about wanting chocolate pudding. I really wish he was closer so we could have a "Doctor Who" marathon in the same room. Currently we talk by phone/txts while satching episodes. It is fun though. I don't think I mentioned that Bridgetown's Home Hardware moved to where NSLC used to be. I still find it right odd to go there instead of the building they were in since before I was born.

Now it is 1/4 3am though, so Sarah is off to crash into her blanket latibule D: I am planning-on going to see the Torch run through Middleton tomorrow at 3:10pm~ I find this so exciting! I am too patriotic to protest them, but I am right pissed about no women's ski jumping, when they are having men's. Not Canada's fault though, the courts could do nothing to change the Olympic Comittee's planning. I still love every Canadian team though!


I might aswell also add that the Olympic crew guy that presented reminded me of Vince with Sham-Wow! XD
