on weekends

On weekends I take it easy. I try to avoid the crowds. I try to read novels (and not the papers, not the LRB). I always eat a lot of cake.

During the week I listen to Elliott Smith on my headphones to drown out all noise (and the reality of a long commute). I read articles about literature and history on the tube that sometimes make me sad, sometimes make me laugh. I cycle to my tube stop.

Modern life is very strange, and yes, a bit rubbish. (I don't think I knew what modern life was before coming here.)
