my mum says never go to sleep angry with the one you love

It's amazing what difference a few days and some distance can make. I re-read my last blog entry and felt ashamed at my defeatist and drunken rant. My sentiments remain the same, but jesus, did I have to be so melodramatic?

Sorry Sri Lanka, at least I get to leave. I get to clear my head and sip coconuts on beach and get some perspective. But you're still there, slowly imploding, aren't you? I looked for you on the news last night but I couldn't find you. No wonder half the world doesn't know you're hell bent on self destruction.

I promise to stay positive about you in future, but damn, you don't make it easy for a girl. Can we still be friends?

was reading an article about survivors' responses to the new telemovie about the tsunami and thinking about your interview with marty. it might sound odd, but it was your story above all others that made any of it seem real to me, that stopped it from being sort of cinematic; smaller and more personal and just.. legion. so even if it seems insignificant, your telling these stories - even here - is doing something important.
apologies for mushing. does this mean you're going to make good on your promises to whip up one-offs on your singer?
