CChange over weekend. Half of Holiday Town is leaving and another batch incoming. The Bolivian Band up the road are doing covers of Linkin Park...I think.

The cinco got together the other day for a practice. I use that word loosely. But we have a great deal of fun and sometimes it sounds real. I have never been part of a group or team before and I think I actually really like it.

Amazing Theatre

Ultrafractal 4.0 and photoshop CS2...oh, and a download trial of Painter Essentials 4.

Sucked in by Stale Confectionary.

Too hot to think straight. Henry, the right hand neighbour sounded like he was coughing out his intestines this morning. He sleeps in his sitting room under the flickering blue light of his television.

One out of four children in the province of Tarragona are dehydrated right now. The tourists and locals are turning the colour of creosote. Sirens wailing as people give themselves serious sunburn.

The little dog who has lived here for fourteen years has a heart murmer and my heart is breaking.

It Takes Two

Walked up in the mountains, between the almond groves and carob trees with my friend Bean. She has a year old labrador who, if a little older, would have been able to pull Roman chariots right across the province of Tarragona. Of course, I left my memory card stuck in the computer so the camera didn't work.

We narrowly escaped death several times as testosterone-fuelled Catalans hissed by in a cloud of Spandex and mountain bikes.  All of them surprisingly fat. Perhaps it was a Secret Sunday Weight Loss programme.

No news from Alice who used to be Frank. She is sailing through France but Le Flic keep stopping her.
