15,000 Tonnes of Coal

by Purple Wyrm on May 30, 2004

Well, Ali starts writing regularly, and I stop. There’s symmetry for you. I’ve been fairly busy the last few weeks. I can’t be bothered writing about all of it right now because the work related stuff is just too depressing. (…)

“How can you go wrong with five chicks in sacks and a satanic drummer?” — Journalist Emma Tom (regarding Estonia’s entry in this year’s Eurovision song contest.) Roll on Friday!! 🙂
