I didn't think about Presents all day! And i was just reading the newspaper, eating some crisps, drinking a beer, and i suddenly realised i was going away all evening and wouldn't be able to make anything. Going out to have diner with friends, after that we'll go to the 'Squarecinema', outdoor cinema, like a drive-in without the cars. Tonight Paul Verhoeven's Starship Troopers will be on. I hope enough action to fight off the upcoming chill. Been thinking about autumn lately, feeling the cold slowly creeping up. But its still sunny, gentle weather. Thats sun is blasting into my living room (i got blinded by it just yet), Scritti is singing Born to be ('I make no decisions, declarations or demands'). At first i wasn't too impressed with that song, but it has grown on me. It's so good that someone hasn't lost his touch after so many years, it shows that having patience, only doing something when you feel right about it, that all that pays of in the end. ('It'll get better now - you know what i mean') Ooh, i feel confessions coming up! You're lucky i have to end this now, upload the page and get on my way. ('The world has never been so happy in its heart of hearts')

Take care,
Ellen
