Dream On
Mississauga (January 2005)


"When we can't dream any longer we die."- Emma Goldman

I survived 2004 without much new gadgetry. I say this not to look at life to revolve around amassing what's latest or what's new, more like being honest to myself for having moments of gadget-lust.

In fact, the best and only thinkamagig I got was a Nokia 6600 for my birthday, which I took a whirl on several times to do some phonecam snapshots.

And thatís it. I still have my trusty Canon Powershot A20, Lomo LCA, and my dying laptop.

Since migrating, I have this plan to target something by milestones. My first paycheck went to a new 27Ē TV and DVD player for those cold winter nights. I surmise that doing that I'd value every cent and space my purchases.

This gadget-lust has even invaded my sleep. 24 hours ago, I dreamt that I got the following 2005 gadgets from the mail:

A voice-over-IP connection to have lower mobile phone charges.

Then an Apple 12-inch Powerbook which I plan to place inside this for safety reasons. (Just kidding. Not on the Apple crossing-over, but on the pizzabox). In the dream, I told myself, "Now that Iím using a Mac, I wonít even need Microsoftís latest spyware to be launched on Jan 6." Beta snapshot here.

To go with it was a spanking new Apple Ipodís 20GB with the new click wheel. I looked at my music library on my laptop and it is eating 4 GB, plus 4 GB in my lacie external drive. So a 20 GB will be underutilized. I guess.

The last box came. In it was a Nokia 7710. (no, not a 7110, I had that 5 years ago).

While I tinkered with it, re-placed my sim card, and turned it on, this great all-in-one gadget rang.

The ring was so familiar. It was like my old phone. But that should'nt happen I reckoned. I thought I stopped the ringing by turning it off, but it didnt.

My alarm clock kept on ringing.

It was 6:45 in the morning.

Time to go to work.

Bloggers Rock

Pinoy bloggers met and enjoyed, and ate, and enjoyed, took pictures, and enjoyed, told stories and enjoyed, while I sit here gnashing my teeth wanting to join the fray. You are the People of the Year! Take a bow.

BTW, last year more readers were reading blogs. That's why my numbers doubled and my friends reached a million.
