So, where are we? Same ol', same ol'. Work and play. Pretty excited at the moment as when I went into town today I thought I might as well check the shops on the off chance that they might have the new Pet Shop Boys album early. It doesn't officially come out until next Monday in the UK, but they don't ever seem to care about release dates here in the Netherlands and just put stuff out whenever. Anyway, sure enough, they had a copy of the two-disc special edition. I'm extremely skint at the moment, but took the plunge anyway. I must say, I do not regret it.

Apart from that, I'm caught up in the hype of Eurovision. It's kind of funny as it feels like it's Europe's dirty little secret. I don't really know many other Americans who know about Eurovision apart from those who've lived abroad. I want Finland to win so bad, it's not even funny. Well, I would like Finland and the UK to be in the top two, I don't mind in which order. I don't think that's likely, but in a perfect world, there'd be no other option.

Alison, Max and myself saw "The Da Vinci Code" yesterday. It was good, but not great. I feel the first 2/3 were superior to the last 1/3. But for a summer blockbuster, it's safe to say it won't be the worst choice to see.

Can't think of anything else at the moment. For those of you who don't already know, I'm coming back to the US in the middle of July in time for the After Harvest Festival. Will be good to see some familiar faces. Until then...
