like ice in the sun ...

... i melt away. yes. it is still hot. yesterday, temperatures went up to 39.5C (103.1F) in one place in eastern austria, the second highest temperature on record (the highest being 39.7C or 103.5F, 1983 in a village near my hometown). it got muggy, too, which really did not agree with me at all.

yesterday evening i went to see this

at augarten park where they have "kino unter sternen" ("cinema under the stars") every year, showing classics, avantgarde, and new films for nearly seven weeks each year, against the backdrop of one of the park's flak (anti-aircraft) towers.

always a wonderful film to watch.
speaking of watching - one of my favourite quotes from casablanca:
Mr. Leuchtag: Liebchen - sweetnessheart, what watch?
Mrs. Leuchtag: Ten watch.
Mr. Leuchtag: Such much?

the new harry potter book was delivered this morning - even though it is saturday, and there is no regular mail on saturdays here. soooo ... i guess i will be spending some time reading this weekend. and no matter what one thinks of the novel / the series, i think it is a good thing to see that people can still go crazy over and be passionate about a book.

i am on day 7 of my 10:10. here's today's:
loose fists
drip ice water
until skin turns, aching,
to braille, until the night itself
* * * * *

this is not a good day to dye one's hair.
*she says, dripping henna*

song of the day: ice in the sun by status quo.
