I found some unbelievably cheap mince at Julius Meinl yesterday. It was labelled ‘akce maso’ which translates as ‘action meat’ but means ‘cheap shit.’ How could I resist? Frying it some time later I produced an unmistakably rancid smell which soon came to dominate the house. Martin advised me that it was probably unfit to eat so I eventually decided not to eat it, but throw it away. What a waste of 17 crowns.
Martin’s nieces locked the spare room a few days back, and lost the key. This morning I lay in bed and listened to an emergency locksmith chiseling the lock off the door, the aborted effort having shattered the frame. Not a soothing sound really, but I slept through it and spent the remainder of my day listening to War Of The Worlds, lying in the sun, drinking tea and vaguely preparing lessons.
Have just found out it is Hamish’s birthday today (why was I not told?) so will be forced to jake a few jars in, just hope I’m not observed teaching tomorrow.

    Got your note at the bar though. Cheers. Eventually arrived there at 00:30 after seeing premiere of Dawn of the Dead – which was fucking fantastic.
