7.10 am… yesterday I think… well It’s the 11th here. I’ve got a latte… well, it’s a good attempt at one and a bargin at 2.19 pound… so that’s about $6 aus or something… have to drink coffee sparingly. I’ve fired up the new Ipod for the first time… put it on random all songs, and it chose London Calling by the Clash followed by the Sex Pistols… think it knows where it is.

Also saw a bit of Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, which I had seen before and I appreciated it a lot more the second time around, it is a great adaptation, still think it could have been improved by including a few of the classic lines “Arthur- In times like this I wish I had listened to what my mother told me.” Ford – “What did she tell you? Arthur – “I don’t know I wasn’t listening”.
I’ve hit the dazed feeling… I think the coffee has pushed me over.
I might go see if I can find a map of
Wish I had a towel…
