Present Perfect

Had a both relaxing and tiring weekend. Instead of going to Gent on Friday evening and see Venus in Flames play at the Charlatan, I stayed home and watched Risky Business instead - a movie that's been on my to-see list since forever. It was actually more explicit than I expected, and for an 80's movie not too bad.

Saturday I took the train to Gent (Kristien's car is still towed after someone took it for a joyride) to spend the afternoon sewing with Tamara. I'm finally finishing a rust-brown pullover I started only seven years ago. At this pace it'll be back in fashion by the time it's done.

After that, we went out for a tango milonga at the usual place. And after that, a party at the place where I spent my sundays as a boy scout from 12 to 18. On the way there we drove past the house of my first girlfriend (when I was 11), so I looked her up on Facebook and tagged her. Then I got nostalgic and looked up the first girl I kissed, she was there too. Maybe this is my mind's way of telling me that it's high time Kristien got back from India.

Do we have any more selfish goal in life than to be remembered by the people we've loved ? People only truly die when there is no one around anymore to remember them.

Sunday morning I spent fixing my parents' home network, trying to find my dad's computer (which broke again, after he fried both his hard drives of his software raid and I used an expensive company for data recovery), which he either misplaced somewhere in the house or had stolen when the garage door was left open.

Then back on the train to Brussels, confused again by the Brussels metro system that is about to change completely in April (for the worse, as far as I can tell), and watched The smartest guys in the room, a documentary on the Enron scandal. I particularly gasped at the part about how they held California hostage to take money, impressive hack.

Now I'm done disconnecting, time to sleep under the watchful eyes of Paloma.
