Cold, still, time-less Sunday edging by my window.

Tuesday, February 22, 2005


in my memory we drove through the dark, kobi and i in my silly little convertible with the roof down even though it was raining which is actually fine as long as you don't have to go under 40 Ks. when we got to muriwai it wasn't raining much - just spitting but it was windy as hell. it was so different to see the gannets at night in the nasty weather. i'd never thought about those guys perched like that in the rocks against all that horribleness. they all seemed to be awake making little noises at each other you could occasionally hear over the wind and i lay down on the big wide railing and closed my eyes and thought about what it would be like to go to sleep like that, i'd be afraid of the wind and the cold and the rain. then i realized, yes, but you'd just have to trust it wouldn't you and i felt myself relaxing. i think i try to carry that feeling around with me. especially at the moment. london is a scary place - but i am love, love, loving it. i don't think i've ever fallen for a city before. sure, i flirted with Wellington but never let myself be fully tempted.

very quiet weekend. friday night at home - early to bed. saturday poker night with the boys from work. lovely ride to brick lane on sunday morning for a delicious brunch at cafe 1001 and met the maker of my favourite "I'd rather be wanking" t-shirt. met up with lisa for a bite to eat at Soba in soho which was disappointing - the food, not the company.

now it's monday 8:15 and i'm off to work at 8:30 to cycle through the 2 degree morning.

Brighton - nice and friendly. Think I'll be back. My cousin Susannah and I took off after equally horrid Fridays at work. Susannah came back to London on Saturday night for a party, while I stayed on for the whole weekend, met some charming folk and generally tried to forget the horrid Friday.

antwerpen pics
Here I am at the end of the week about to head off to Brighton for the weekend and still haven't got anything up about last weekend. Struggling to get to bed early enough to wake up in time to get to work this week. Body clock seems to be back to normal now though as today is the first time I've woken up early early. (or has the stress caught up with me)

This is a new and entertaining concept for me at least: if you want to see the pics from antwerp you have to have the password which is my first middle name - starting with 'd'. Just use your name for username.

Visited Saskia at her soon-to-be-ex-flat in Antwerp, Belgium as she is off home to NZ next week. Lovely weekend; delicious food and wierd coloured belgian spirits; fantastic cafes and delightful company. One of those weekends when everything seemed worthy of a photograph, though I have picked just the best for the site.

at 3am; not good. i am determined not to call it jetlag. i think its more disorientation. i guess if you consider where its been over the past couple of weeks, its kind of clear why my body might be a little confused right now. i don't have any pics of nz to speak of. i guess i should try to describe.. no, i can't; here's one photo:
