I woke up this morning feeling pin sharp. I haven't felt this way in a long, long time. Suddenly I can do things like washing and tidying up much faster. Hope it lasts! (This is probably how normal people feel all the time). So anyway, my birthday was spent soi-meme, as per usual. My mum said I should go out, but on my own? I eventually decided on the bingo. It cost ten pounds for an evening's worth of tickets and 3 pounds for a beer. I won 80 quid, so it was worth stretching my legs but I didn't enjoy it. The caller races through the numbers like a thoroughbred on steroids- it's not glamorous like in the Aviva advert. I don't know, why not combine it with a bit of cabaret?
My only other contact with the outside world that I look forward to is on Wednesdays because I always sit next to an Estonian woman about my age who I have a good laugh with. She is very good at maths and I can use her as a crib sheet. Quite good looking too, but spoken for.
I have a Canadian friend who is doing a master's degree in film theory in Glasgow. It's possible that before my film wraps up totally I'll go up there and film him. I take it as a good omen that one of the characters in my film, Kevin, is from Glasgow.
And that is about it on the news front. I'm mainly living inside a cocoon as I was in China- doing my little projects. I plug into the national conversation by keeping an eye on Southampton and the Premiership and watching Downton Abbey, which I've found disappointing for all sorts of reasons but is not without merit.
Weather,16 degrees, sunny, windy.
