sunny saturday

for the last few weeks i've had a craving to walk down to centennial park and lie in the sun, watching the world go by. today was the day. i passed the crowds on their way to the horse races at royal randwick - glad i wasn't going there! there was a lovely breeze blowing. the sun was shining (30°C here today - bloody hot for april!), lots of people out and about enjoying the fine weather. found a nice spot to sit and listened to my discman and read my book, looking up every now and then to check out the young men playing frisbee nearby - i cannot help my wandering eye 8)

all in all, a fine saturday filled with timchat, kimchat, fresh air and sunshine, good music, good reading. what more could a girl ask for??

today's soundtrack:
elemental : tears for fears
short note : matt finish (twice) [make that three times]
88 lines about 44 women : the nails (found the tape [mood swing] that this song is on while digging around in a box looking for something.) excellent stuff!!
son of evil reindeer : reindeer section

EDIT: i forgot to mention that in the interests of economics i have disconnected my cable tv subscription. considering that the tv is mostly only on for background noise, i could not justify the expense of cable. sadly, there is no external aerial in my building so the reception of the terrestrial channels is almost non existent. miss e came over this afternoon and helped me hook up a set top aerial that my friend ho has lent to me. the reception is improved slightly but have to keep readjusting the 'bunny ears' on the aerial... so, having reconnected, i've just remembered that i found this over at easybake coven... i will try to succeed at this, but cannot make any promises!! i can add another item to todays list of good things - a visit from miss e.
