Welcome to the diary of a manchild.
I’m in bed and Edelweiss are on the stereo.

China is in a bit of an uproar, isn’t it?  What, with the student strike and then the workers + now the police.  It’s strange, you know, to hear a Grandfather who fought in the last World War say he never thought he’d see the day when Communist countries trembled from within.  It’s even stranger when you think, Neither did I.
I spent a day of humidity and Emma today.  I’ve decided that I DO need psychiatric help.  Emma, of course, is beginning to bug me.  It’s that twee little naïve-TEH of hers; that gurlie attitude.  I should have known better.  But, as I told Jodie, something was drawing us back together and it couldn’t really be stopped.  Unfinished business?
In Computers today, I formatted a script-writing thing, so I’ll be able to use that for future scripts.  I’m raring to go.
The keyboard bits in ‘Bring Me Edelweiss’.
