I haven't updated for a while, my life was so busy lately!

Most of last week was taken up by my personal celebration of the return to school. I did my minimal contribution to student life by participating in the pub crawl (but skipping the tube/funnel beer drinking events), my other nights were at Else's. The pub crawl was a riot - close to 200 students in the metro screaming, singing and yelling. Well you know got to do it, it's only once in your life! I had fun though, and didn't get too smashed.

I wrote a 6-page letter couple of days ago. Yes, a handwritten letter. Which is a thing of the past now. It was destined to Vincent, an ex-employee of Else's I ran into. He's a writer and just gave me something to read... "Here's something I wrote. Why don't you read it, and send me a letter telling me your comments. It'd be really cool to receive it by mail..." Instead of e-mail which has superseded handwriting, almost...

Last but not least, it's my birthday today. I'm turning 31! I spent sometime yesterday downloading music and putting it in my newly acquired iTunes (the best jukebox software, bar none!). Compiling a mix to play at Else's tonight.

Yeah I know, my taste in music very eclectic. I make no discrimination! (Well, almost). I'd have put more French music in there, but it's difficult to find a good selection on the internet...

Gathering a few friends this evening to go have dinner in Chinatown (where you have the best quality/price/quantity ratio - if you know which restaurant to go to!), and then we'll finish the evening at Else's. Pretty much the whole staff knows it's my birthday, so I think there's going to be a good ambience!

Tomorrow, back to school - 2nd week. The (major) partying is definitely over...
