I am in … · 11 June 2007
Detail of the Excell records building, Notting Hill London. What? Change of plans. And it has everything to do with screen writing.
I’m learning to fly · 8 June 2007
The garbage man joked around and made me smile as one of the first things this day. One of my neighbours was talking to another one without his teeth in, and although I know he is English I couldn’t understand a word he said. I walked my last morning walk to Victoria Station. I decide [...]

Voicilicious: Bill Nighy and Silksoundbooks · 4 June 2007
So you feel absolutely knackered with a headache and a soar throat but you don’t want to call in sick in your last week at your current job. You drag yourself to work, and after an hour the fire alarm goes. While enjoying the view from the 18th is great, walking down the stairs from [...]
Edinburgh III: Do you fear death? · 31 May 2007
Up the hill in Edinburgh Sunday morning it was raining.
Yo ho, yo ho · 24 May 2007
I have nothing much to say just yet. But the week has passed, and that means that he’s back. I feel like a little girl around Christmas time, overly exited and not grown-up at all. I don’t care what the critics say, I know there will be scenes where I will be glued to the [...]

The Drowsy Chaperone – Novello theatre London – review · 18 May 2007
It might start to sound a bit pathetic now, my “I don’t like musicals” attitude and maybe I should alter it a little bit and say “I don’t like standard 13 in a dozen like musicals”. I found an email in my inbox last week from a PR man connected to this musical and he [...]
Let’s do a Dislocation Dance · 17 May 2007
Staring at the blank screen before me, there are a couple of cheap tricks to get around that and post something anyway: 1. post a postcard – yeah but there have been quite a few of them here lately 2. post a pathethic poem – let’s not shall we 3. post a funky song – [...]
Landscape with Weapon, National Theatre, London – review · 15 May 2007
First of all – I am incredibly pissed off about the fact that Bill Nighy isn’t even nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in The Vertical Hour. Extremely pissed off. I have no words for it really, if that wasn’t award worthy acting then I don’t understand a thing. Kevin Spacey (Moon for [...]
Row, row, row your boat · 14 May 2007
Sand art in Zandvoort (The Netherlands) I apologize. For not being able to grow up. Or on second thought – I don’t.
The Thing – the day after the day · 10 May 2007
In the film in my head I had thought of a couple of ways to hand in my resignation and a couple of reasons to give them why I leave.
The Thing is … · 8 May 2007
It’s not a big Thing for you. But it is the Thing for me. So just to lower your expectations: I am not getting married I am not pregnant I am not leaving the country I am not moving And it has nothing whatsoever to do with him Sorry to disappoint you. The Thing is [...]
I seduce you with my eyebrow · 3 May 2007
Oh God not him again, I hear you think. Well as I recently have been hanging out on websites realizing that I am not the only one having issues I might as well just openly come out with it. As I felt the need to throw some Bill in between all those Alan’s I hacked [...]
And for a minute there, I lost myself · 2 May 2007
New York, 12 March 2007 She had a couple of hours left before heading to boring JFK airport. She walked around with her soul under her arms as they say. She had a few dollars left as well and when she walked passed it, accidentally, unplanned, she thought that she might as well end this [...]
Bored is boring · 30 April 2007
The red door, Notting Hill You are seriously bored when: None of the 421 songs on your iPod seems worth listening to. You start reading the mails in your spam filter. You check your watch too often. And because you can’t believe that only this few minutes have passed since you last checked it, you [...]
Half Nelson and This is England · 29 April 2007
About film, and real life that happens in front of your eyes.
Waiting waiting waiting · 27 April 2007
Update : 7.20 pm The wait is over, it’s a boy. And a girl. Several boys and girls actually. Let’s say that the concept of a simple twist of fate is going to change a fair part of my life. More about that somewhere next week because some things need to be taken care of [...]
