Woke up early and tired, so went back to sleep on the proviso I would shake it and now I've woken up with that "clubbed over the head" feeling. Where has the nice weather gone? Oh the humanity! Strange thing is that I feel very warm, even though it's only about 15 degrees and the wind is rushing through my room (as all the windows are open).

I had a weird dream that I was at some strange University. Marion and Petra were there, and all I can remember is playing football with them. What is it they say, that "a dream is an answer to a question we haven't asked". Well what the hell kinda question (and answer) was this?!

Shawshank Redemption arrived, and so did the CD, but for some reason I got the earlier Sum 41 album rather than the later one. I checked the e-mail receipts and it shows the earlier one. So now I have 3 copies of it! Bugger (I can't remember how I had 2 copies of it before, but there must be a good reason). How the heck did that happen. I tried to reorder it from CDWOW, but it was giving me issues with my login and every time I used "add to cart" it wasn't added. Not very helpful for a shopping site. So I gave up and re-ordered it at higher cost from Play.com this time, and double checked it's the *right* one. I'm not that keen to have it, but I like a couple of songs and want some decent MP3 rips. I've definitely paid for it (in triplicate), and really can't afford mistakes like this :-(

Yeah, where -has- that weather gone? I was just starting to enjoy it too.....really enjoy it. I know that it meant that I was stuck up here for much of the time, but I could still sit on the balcony on my wicker chair and chill out. I went out this morning and it was freezing!

The Shawshank Redemption is one hell of a movie. Sum 41 though....not my thing.

Looks like it might be back on Tuesday <prays to the great sun God>. When I was in Switzerland it was a major prestige thing to have a balcony. I was really envious of the peeps that could sit out in the sun, as last year they had a fantastic summer!

I don't like all Sum 41's tracks, but as far as I know they write and perform their own songs, and I like their energy and attitude (christ, I sound like a skater punk at the age of 30!). I'm a bit of a music dabbler in that I have a huge music collection and can listen to most genres, but equally I knows what I likes.

I won't knock Sum 41, like you said, they play and write their own music which is far more than most of the utter shite that's in the charts at the moment (not that I pay attention to the charts anymore).

I bet you miss Switzerland. I've only been there once, but it was one of the most beautiful places I've ever had the fortune of seeing. Geneva was a lovely city too.....so clean, smart, interesting and generally friendly (this was 13 years ago, mind).

So you're a 30-year-old "sk8r boi" then? *lol*

Do I miss Switzerland? No, not really. All I miss is Niki. In fact, I don't think for one second about the job or the other people which is a good indication that I am well shot of it. The job was dehumanising me, and I would hate to get trapped in something like that again. I know I missed some opportunities when I was out there, but I'm not going to get too morose about it :-)

I should add that I never really visited Geneva centre, although I did go to Geneva arena to see Moby and Royksopp play (that was *great*!).

As for being a 30 year old Sk8r Boi... I still feel like I'm 15, and I still have my sk8board in the loft :-)
